First Impressions

Minecraft isn’t one of my most favourite things (owing to the fact my children play it constantly, talk about it endlessly and when their friends comes around, armed with their laptops, my house resembles a Minecraft themed internet cafe), but if you have a young child or adult who enjoys Minecraft, then I honestly think they’ll enjoy this book.

It begins at the same point a user will begin a new game of Minecraft (proving that I do listen to some of my children’s ‘Minecraft talk’). It is a virtual world of blocks in which you can design or destroy the landscape, working in unison with others, or going it alone – but as poor Flynn will soon find out, a night in Minecraft isn’t the most pleasant of experiences.

It’s well written and will appeal to a younger audience (my boys loved it), and best of all, the first one is available free via Amazon (Kindle).
