We need to be very clear: I’m not writing the Minecraft book. I’m writing a Minecraft book. If the folks from Halo called me to write the Halo book, I could do that, but you cannot write the Minecraft Book.
Max Brooks on Minecraft: The Island[1]

Minecraft: The Island is a novel by American author Max Brooks,[2] which was published by Del Rey Books on July 18, 2017.[3] Two audiobooks were also released on the same day, with narration provided by Jack Black and Samira Wiley, respectively.

Synopsis[edit]

It is a castaway story in the vein of Robinson Crusoe - the protagonist waking up alone, off the shores of a strange land, forced into a struggle to understand the rules of the new world, to survive its perils and thrive.

The person wakes up in this world and knows that they are from our world, but doesn’t know who they are in that world. They have no memory. It is a story of survival: waking up at the bottom of the ocean, swimming to an island, and having to survive on that island. And the story is, before this person can answer the really big questions like, “How did I get here? How do I get home?,” they have to solve the basic survival questions of “How do I eat?” and “How am I safe?” and “Where do I sleep at night?”
