Minecraft: The Island [book]

 Minecraft: The Island [book]

WITH A SEQUEL COMING OUT SOMEONE MENTIONED TO ME "DID YOU KNOW THE FIRST MINECRAFT BOOK IS REALLY REALLY WEIRD?" AND SINCE I COULD JUST GRAB A NEARBY COPY I COULD VERIFY THAT IT WAS IN FACT VERY WEIRD AND READ ABOUT HALF, THEN ENDED UP LISTENING TO HALF OF IT AS READ BY JACK BLACK. IT'S WRITTEN BY THE GUY THAT WROTE WORLD WAR Z AND HAS THE EXACT SORT OF PREMISE YOU WOULD EXPECT SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAVE WHERE A GUY IS SUCKED INTO THE MINECRAFT WORLD. BUT INSTEAD OF BEING NORMAL ABOUT IT IT WAS HYPER AWARE OF THE VERY SPECIFIC GAME MECHANICS, SO IT WOULD JUST GO ON AND ON VERY SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THINGS LIKE THE GAME INTERFACE OR THE FACT HE COULD PUNCH 4 BLOCKS AWAY OR THAT ALL THE RAW FISH WERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FISH BUT THE COOKED FISH ARE ONE TYPE OF FISH.  

PS. THE OTHER HALF OF WHAT MADE THIS WILD IS THAT INSTEAD OF BEING A NORMAL KID'S BOOK IT SEEMED TO BE A SELF HELP BOOK ABOUT EMOTIONAL REGULATION? THAT SEEMED CONTRIVED TO INVENT A FIVE SIDED MENTAL HEALTH CUBE SO IT COULD TIE INTO A MINECRAFT THEME? I GOTTA SAY THOUGH, IT MAY BE BECAUSE I WAS LISTENING TO IT WHILE AWAKE FOR LIKE 23 HOURS AND AFTER WALKING 18 MILES BUT I WAS GETTING SORT OF INTO THE MESSAGE BY THE END AND PUTTING A LOT OF WEIGHT INTO WHAT JACK BLACK WAS SAYING.
