Minecraft: The Island Reviews
This book was a fun read. I know nothing about minecraft, the game, except that it has square figures and you build stuff. The only reason I wanted to try this is because I love World War Z.
The premise of this book is that a character (either male or female, entirely up to you) is stranded on an island with a different set of rules than our world. S/he has to figure out how to survive in that world, and figure out the rules there.
It's a nice introduction to the game world and an interesting way ...more
I bought the ebook of Minecraft: The Island because I was curious what the author, Max Brooks who wrote World War Z would do with it.
I’m familiar with the game as I played it a couple of years ago. As an adult I thought the game was wonderfully original and while I’ve moved on to others, I continue to see its influence in more modern takes on the survival genre.
I read this book in snippets as I ate lunch or was stuck in a line at the store. I think if one just sat down and focused on it, you ...more
This was not for me. Why did I read this?
While it wasn't terrible, I felt a little misled by the Max Brooks part of this equation. I guess I shouldn't have expected World War M?
At any rate, I read this because my son is big into the game and I wanted to have something we could share. This was way more Y than A than most books and was almost a game guide at points. Very hard to read something that is telling you / describing to you how to manage inventory.
There was one truly laugh out loud moment when you meet the animals for the first ...more
Some people seem to be unaware that this book is aimed towards the 8-12 year old age group. LOL (I get it; I had to check after realizing that the author of one of my favorite zombie novels wrote this!) Anyhow, my 11-year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed this book and after finding out that the audio version is read by Jack Black, we may try that, too! Two aspects keep me from giving this 5 stars, the first being that sometimes situations are resolved or glossed over too quickly and easily. This ...more
I had a pretty serious Minecraft addiction for a few years, building a 30,000 block perimeter road around my kingdom that stretched 5,000 blocks east to west and 10,000 blocks north to south. Inside this boundary was a modest castle, sixteen fortified villages, a limited overworld subway system, a smaller netherworld subway system, a dozen desert temple homes, four jungle temple homes, an oasis house built around a well, an excavated end portal temple and a completely drained ocean temple, all c ...more
Domani troverete la recensione sul mio Blog e su quello di Leggere Distopico 😊
I really enjoyed reading World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, so when I saw this book at our local library, I immediately borrowed it for our Minecraft-obsessed daughter. She liked the book, and I really didn't think much more about it.
That is, until I listened to the Nerdist podcast where Chris Hardwick interviewed Mr. Brooks (again) and I knew I had to check out the audiobook (it's narrated by Jack Black!!)
One of the fascinating things I learned by listening to the podcast is that t ...more
