Die in real life? Stuck in the game, Gameknight discovers Minecraft’s best-kept secret, something not even the game’s programmers realize: the creatures within the game are alive! He will have to stay one step ahead of the sharp claws of zombies and pointed fangs of spiders, but he’ll also have to learn to make friends and work as a team if he has any chance of surviving the Minecraft war his arrival has started.

Inconceivable!

My son recently read this book so I decided to have a listen to the audiobook on my commute to work. I enjoyed the story of jerk-turned-good-guy. It teaches a great lesson in a medium that is relevant to today’s generation of kids. I didn’t like the way the story was written. The writer kept recycling the same handful of adjectives and his sentence structure was very repetitive too. I also wasn’t impressed with the swearing (p***ed, used twice to describe how other people felt about something the main character had done). The narrator made me feel like I went in against a Sicilian and death was on the line. I’m sure he has a truely dizzying intellect but it was a slog to listen to that voice for 6, or so, hours.

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!

Tron meets Never Ending Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Invasion of the Overworld: An Unofficial Minecrafter's Adventure to be better than the print version?

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 was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

What interested me most was the Minecraft tie in. I felt the lead up to the final was too long.

What three words best describe Chris Sorensen’s voice?

Emotionless. Void. Distracting.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

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!
