3.0 out of 5 stars Is this suitable for kids?, 19 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cubeworld (Kindle Edition)
I have a 10 year old mine craft mad son who was desperate to read this book. I thought I would just check this was suitable as no age recommendations were available.

Last chapter mentioned sex abuse so alarm bells started ringing. Whilst any unpleasant scenes were implied rather than described, I am not comfortable for him to read it just yet.

Will let you make up your own minds but personally think this is suitable for older kids only.

On the plus side I now know a lot more about mine craft!!

Thank you for your candid review. I have a 9 year old who is crazy about Minecraft. Your review was very helpful.

Thank you, I was about to buy it for my nine year old but I think I'll stick with the Mine craft annual instead.

Thank you for this review. Was going to purchase this book for my 8 year old, who has recently been asking how "families" start. I think I will cross that bridge before I let him read this.

It's a shame authors think that using swearing is cool. Well, it's not, especially for younger readers. I wanted to buy the book but I will not. Dear author, write a similar book without swearing and more parents will be buying it.

Thank you for your review, at first I thought 'yes! a novel my son can read about minecraft' but have now had second thoughts thanks to your review and find it very disturbing to discover what you did. I am grateful that you had taken the time to read the book before giving it to your child.

Was about to buy it for my 8 & 10 year old minecraft fans but will give it a miss. Thanks for the age related review.
