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 Maximillian 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]

Washed up on a beach, the lone castaway looks around the shore. Where am I? Who am I? And why is everything made out of blocks? But there isn’t much time to soak up the sun. It’s getting dark, and there is a strange new world to explore.

The top priority is finding food. The next is not becoming food. Because there are other 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.
