For me the narrator stole some of the pace from the story and removed the emotion from a lot of the chapters, disengaging me from the story. Having read the first few chapters I wasn't so removed in text format.
What interested me most was the Minecraft tie in. I felt the lead up to the final was too long.
Emotionless. Void. Distracting.
This was purchased for research and I was looking for stories to recommend for the reading age. And I would recommend it. There is plenty here to keep someone turning the pages, plenty to discuss about tropes, story building, the genre expectations, word use.
Hardcopy is best for this one!
"Very Google book for minecrafters"
It's a very good book for people who understand minecraft. I play it all the time. Listen to this one first before you listen to the others or you won't understand. :) Thank you Mark Cheverton for putting all this effort in to these books!
