Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

In the new official Minecraft novel from the New York Times best-selling author of Minecraft: The Island, a stranded hero stumbles upon another castaway - and discovers that teamwork might just be the secret to survival.

Wandering a vast, icy tundra, the explorer has never felt more alone. Is there anything out here? Did I do the right thing by leaving the safety of my island? Should I give up and go back? So many questions, and no time to ponder - not when dark is falling and dangerous mobs are on the horizon.

Gurgling zombies and snarling wolves lurk in the night, and they're closing in. With nowhere to hide, the lone traveller flees up a mountain, trapped and out of options...until a mysterious figure arrives, fighting off the horde singlehandedly. The unexpected saviour is Summer, a fellow castaway and master of survival in these frozen wastes.

Excited to find another person in this strange blocky world, the explorer teams up with Summer, whose impressive mountain fortress as a safe haven...for now. But teamwork is a new skill for two people used to working alone. If they want to make it home, they will have to learn to work together - or risk losing everything.

Not as good as the original

The first was Marcus Aurelius the Meditations for zoomers. This is How to win friends and I influence people for dummies. In my consideration it is worse than the original by far.

Superlative Story!

If you are a humble audible listener like me, and you have read the marvelous novel ' Minecraft the Island' then you would unquestionably be eager and impatient to buy this book. (If so you would basically be a simulation of me)

First of all, the narrator is different and I wouldn't say he is as good as the legend himself Jack Black. But he is still an adequate narrator with a strong clear voice that will bring the story to life-

Secondly, the storyline is contempt, although it doesn't change or differ that much, apart from Summer and Guy (The characters) going to the nether and back. So personally I prefer 'Minecraft the Island'.

Apart from that amazing story, definitely worth the credit and I will be looking out for the next book!

Well......

Tbh am annoyed that they switched up the narrater nothing wrong with the one now it’s just that jack was amazing at it and we all got used to him if Sean did it at the start we would all be used to him it’s just kinda annoying but Sean ur narrating is still great 👍

Minecraft's The Mountain

Amazing book.

I wasn't sure how the story would continue, thinking it would still be a solo mission like in the world of minecraft. However, the incorporation of Summer (or Alex) has moved the story to companionship.

It was enjoyable to listen to and very engaging to the point that I am really looking forward to the next book. I can only assume that the next storyline will be to about strongholds and the end but I'm sure I'll be pleasantly surprised if I am wrong.

I wasnt sure if Jack Black could really be replaced but the energy that Sean Astin has while reading is just as enchanting as Black's.

Well worth the listen (or read).a

Another great adventure, with added lessons!

A Great Listen!
However some sections seemed to really drag on. (Nether especially)
and the character development of summer was a bit strange to start off with. However the lessons about friendship and wacky Minecraft shenanigans are the real highlights of this Audio Book. It also makes you want to revisit Minecraft to try out some of the crazy things mentioned!
I recommend this audio Book to anyone who likes Videogames, Adventures or even lessons about being a better friend.
7/10

Good book

This book is worth it, the storyline gets a bit weird at times, but overall it’s a extremely good book for listening to while sleeping, relaxing, etc.
