Book Review: “Will Save Galaxy For Food” by Yahtzee Croshaw

Will Save Galaxy For Food by Yahtzee Croshaw

This is a deep, dark and thought provoking novel, tightly interwoven and densely textured.


If that’s what you were looking for, I have no idea why you thought you would find it here! 🙂

What’s the point here? We don’t need no steeking point!

The cover suggests that this is “A Satirical Sci-fi Adventure”. I have no idea what exactly is being satirized here. Bad science fiction? Video games? I dunno. And I don’t care.

Blasters!  Star ships!  Aliens!  Space pirates! Gritty working class space pilots!

‘Nuff said.

Croshaw is apparently known as a video game commentator, and also designs video games. It’s no surprise, then, that WSGFF reads like a video game. One “puzzle” after another, lots of blasting things, tons of visual effects, shallow jokes, and thin characters.

The plot makes no sense, and the technology is definitely video game cartoony. The situations are silly, and the characters trivial. The dialog is, again, video game grade.

I didn’t find this story exceptionally interesting or funny. But then, I grew bored with video games about thirty years ago, so this isn’t my cup of tea.

WSGFF is light read, not requiring much concentration. If you like video games, you might like this story.
