This book was somewhat unsatisfing. I honestly hope that Johnny Maxwell is not a show of what Terry Pratchett can truely do.
The basic plot? Johnny Maxwell, a thirteen year old, plays a video game in which the people he is fighting actually need his help to survive! This is a great premise for a novel, however, Johnny just doesn't act his age. The characters are poorly written and flat, not to mention stereotyped to great lengths. The world just doesn't seem believeable, and Johnny seems more like a child than a teenager.
Conclusion: This book is alright if you want to buy it for a young kid around the age of 11 or 12. Otherwise, you're stuck with a book that is REALLY immature for you.
