Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Minecraft: The Island by Max Brooks.

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.

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.

    Story
    "Great Perspective in a Strange World"

    Max Brooks has taken another idea and turned it into something a bit different from the usual material created from it. First it was Zombies, now Minecraft.

    I'm not even a fan of the game but the combo of Max Brooks and Jack Black tempted me in and I'm so glad I did.

    Without giving too much away, it's a very interesting story told from the perspective of a game character. It has great self awareness and the development of the character is very immersive. Almost putting you in the exact situation.

    If you were considering it, buy it. It's a great listen. Jack Blacks performance is superb and I hope he does more.
