Such An Important Audio Book!

I really loved the audiobook. It was hard to reach the end only because I did not want it to end.

Great family story

My 7 and 11 year-old sons and 9 year-old daughter enjoy listening to this story in the car as we run errands and spend family time on the weekends. Well-performed narrator makes it enjoyable for us parents to listen along, as well.

This was amazing! I suggest you listen it.

This was the first Minecraft story I was introduced to. I've listen the story book, but this was the first literary work I've experienced from Minecraft. I liked the story . I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Minecraft and is unsure about it's listening material.

Lots of good tips, great presentation

Definitely a great listen, but feel like there so much more potential. Lots of good tips, great presentation. I used to run a building group a few years back and I still learned a good amount from this book!

Listened to with my 14 year old son and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The creator worked superbly of keeping the audience intrigued the entire time. I suggested this book listening.
