Starcraft: I, Mengsk by Graham McNeill
I would s In view of mengek bad reviews here, this book actually took me by surprise. The core of the story is good, because this is Starcraft after all, but too much time is spent getting from one point of the story to another. No trivia or quizzes yet. Furthermore, it defined my love for the lore of games.

Multiple similarities with Darth Vader’s rise to power. A monstrous act of bloody violence sows the seeds of rebellion in Arcturus, but he is not the first Mengsk to rail against such oppression. The writing, too, is atrocious in places. In regards of characters, everybody in the original games, StarCraft and Brood Warhas some sort of distinctive appeal about them whether they be the enigmatic alien Protoss or their ravenous kindred, the Zerg Swarm or those Terran castaways caught-up meddling in between.

Every woman is attractive and McNeill rubs that in the reader’s face pretty much every time he mentions onea planetary senator’s wife loves cooking new recipes, and pregnancy automatically means the end of a woman’s career.
The book deftly zips through generations and decades in telling the tale of three great rulers of a single lineage, helping to fill in some of the details around one of the series’ most well-conceived characters. I was really hoping that this book would have been better.
What’s more, it’s filled to the brim with tired, sexist tropes that make me wonder if the author has ever interacted with an actual woman. The best of the Starcraft books. The changes in perspective made this a fun book to read, not just in a recreational manner, but to a small extent as an intellectual activity. I enjoyed Graham McNeill’s worldbuilding and the contrasts between Korhal, Umoja, Tyrador IX, and the various points around the Koprulu sector where Arcturus and his marines get deployed.
