Publisher's Summary

The first official Minecraft novel! In the tradition of iconic adventures like Robinson Crusoe and Treasure Island, the number one New York Times best-selling author of World War Z tells the story of a hero - stranded in the world of Minecraft - who must unravel the secrets of a mysterious island in order to survive.

Washed up on a beach, the lone castaway looks around the shore. Where am I? Who am I? And why is everything made of blocks? But there isn't much time to soak up the sun. It's getting dark, and there's a strange new world to explore!

The top priority is finding food. The next is not becoming food. Because there are others out there on the island...like the horde of zombies that appear after night falls. Crafting a way out of this mess is a challenge like no other. Who could build a home while running from exploding creepers, armed skeletons, and an unstoppable tide of hot lava? Especially with no help except for a few makeshift tools and sage advice from an unlikely friend: a cow.

In this world, the rules don't always make sense, but courage and creativity go a long way. There are forests to explore, hidden underground tunnels to loot, and undead mobs to defeat. Only then will the secrets of the island be revealed.

Two editions, two narrators, one thrilling story. Enjoy this version read by Jack Black, and then be sure to check out the other available version narrated by Samira Wiley.

    "Max Brooks and Jack Black does it get any better.."

    It's a short but very enjoyable story. Jack Black does a great job narrating it. As a fan of minecraft I really didn't know what to expect. It was a good story that reminded me of all the fun I had when I first started playing the game. It's got the joy of figuring out crafting recipes, and the discovery of new items and areas. I highly recommend this to any fan of the game.

    "Surprisingly good"

    Jack Black did a great job narrating. I'm 36 and enjoyed it, and my son who is 7 enjoyed it equally as much. Teaches kids valuable life lessons, which is a bonus.

    Story
    "you have to really like mincraft"

    I think Max Brooks is great on just about everything he does...however this one didn't impress me. if you like or love Minecraft, it'll be enjoyable enough to get through. if not, I'd skip this one. Jack Black does a good job narrating but didn't have a lot to work with. it's a slow read but is great as a book to fall sleep to.
