Witchywitch rated it really liked it Jul 09, Arcturus Mengsk—genius, propagandist, tactician, and freedom fighter. 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 anothe This book is simply too long.
Starcraft: I, Mengsk by Graham McNeill
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. I think the story is quite interesting, it spans three generations of the Mengsk family, so naturally it unfolds at a slower pace what you may have been used to.

Getting glimpses into his mind, as well as his family life, was fascinating, and he was characterized so well and so accurately.

I, Mengsk by Graham McNeill – Book Review [Eroldren] « Book Reviews « The Founding Fields
Eroldren, a SFF follower of both tie-in media and original works, enjoys rereading books frequently. As much as I like the Starcraft Universe, I couldn’t like this book. While the structure of the book made the pacing a little awkward, mensgk had me wondering whether it was worth being emotionally invested in any character at any particular time period in the book, the overall effect was admirable.
Any fellow avid book collector of the StarCraft universe I, Mengsk one of the top-notch novels yet published and is should definitely not to be missed by anyone still yet considering otherwise. We respect your email privacy.
It manages to humanize one of the major villains, showing how Arcturus Mengsk went from disaffected son, to revenge-obsessed rebel, to arrogant despot. Before Arcturus grew to manhood, his father, Angus Mengsk, also defied the Confederacy and sought to end its brutal reign.
