The Island Audiobook Free
First let me say, I have played Minecraft since it was in Alpha, when it cost 10$. I have 5 copies of this game: 2 PC, 1 xbox 360, 1 pocket edition, 1 window 10 edition. I Twitch Stream, showcasing Mods and modpacks. I have yet to purchase the Xboxone version. So to say the least, I am a huge fan. Therefore I was VERY skeptical of this book.
Secondly, I have never read the Zombie book Max Brooks wrote. I had heard great things, but never read his stuff. I am more than halfway to the end, and let me say, it is cute.
CUTE, CLEAN, and if youre a fan/have played the game, YOULL BE SO IMMERSED. I was going crazy trying to help this poor dude, because he is struggling to figure out the Minecraft book. I know all the crafting recipes, and if you know them, too, youll be laughing at this guys creativity and exploration tactics.
I LOVE IT. I havent finished it yet. If I ever have kids, and I cant wait to read this to them!
EASY READ LIKE HARRY POTTER without all the confusing hard to pronounce names. Its a little cheesy, but I love how much fan service it offers. This guy definitely has played the game multiple times.
ABOUT THE BOOK:Basically, a man finds himself in the Minecraft world. He has no memory of how he got there, but he has to figure out how to survive. He sees/lives the world as you and I see how its played, 3D blocks, the physics, all of it.
TL/DR: CUTE, CLEAN , EASY TO READ, FAN SERVICE
PLEASE GET THIS BOOK IF YOU LIKE MINECRAFT!

A Minecraft novel is a great idea to create a fictional story based on this game that many children enjoy playing. However this book is written in a very hard going and complex way making it quite difficult to read. The author seems to have missed the fact that a child is their target audience and may not have genius reading abilities. The print size would suit age 10+, the vocabulary used at least 12+, sentence construction and complexity more adult level. I found the descriptive language that was used more resembled what youd find in a gory/horror novel. It was too much for a book where the theme is of interest to a child. I ended up reading this to my 9 year old average ability child and still found it a tough read myself. This author was the wrong choice for a Minecraft novel. The game is child friendly but this book definitely is not. If Im honest Id not even read an adult book by this author who doesnt write in a way that absorbs you into the book. Its more like a reading test of complicated words than a book you can enjoy following the story. Such a shame as we had high hopes for this book.
Audio The Island Narrated By Jack Black
Alright, so, there have always been slim pickings when it comes to looking for good Minecraft based reads. Most Minecraft books are very short with nearly no plot, there is only a few select authors whos books are worth reading. But I have to say, this book here easily surpassed at least 95% of those authors, even many of the good ones. The plot was great and fluent, and the author was descriptive enough in his writing that it actually felt REAL. The author managed to turn a sandbox game with no plot that is entirely made out of cubes, into a believible story. Furthermore, this book was so good that Mojang, the company behind Minecraft, officially claimed this as a product of Mojang.
_Conclusion_Overall, I would highly recommend buying and reading this amazing book. The whole thing was put together well and flows amazingly. The suspense is perfect and the entire thing was very detailed.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

This book is great, but you need to understand that the other books in this series are not all written by the same author and they dont all follow the same story line. They are each completely individual stories and are independent from one another.
I would avoid The Crash and The Shipwreck for sure. They are set in the real world and have very little minecraft and really shouldnt be for kids. They deal with death of real people and are very heavy on social justice/SJW propaganda.
The minecraft dungeons one in the series is good I believe, as well as The End. I regret buying The Crash and am glad I figured out what was going on before buying The Shipwreck. Im hopeful that the Mountain one that Max Brooks is writing that is coming out in March will be ok as well.
Audiobook The Island By Max Brooks
As it turns out, I ended up reading it through myself while my son and I are still halfway through. Unexpectedly touching at times for a novel set in Minecraft, it ended up recalling my childhood love of books like Robinson Crusoe, The Hatchet, or My Side of the Mountain but with an almost Sun Tzu flavor. After reading it through, Im very happy I selected this book out of a sea of choices to read to my son, because it carries lessons both pragmatic and profound for a young person, while being set in a world that my boy is deeply engaged with already and hopefully will allow him to fully digest the moral of each chapter without having to become mired in unfamiliar but superfluous detail. And then with surprise I read at the end that this is the author who wrote World War Z, another book I also very much enjoyed. Thank you Max.
