This had to have 5 stars, as my 10year old son has not put the book down. This is somewhat miraculous as we find it so difficult to find reading material that he actually will read.

I bought the book as a Christmas gift for my Minecraft-mad 9 yr old son largely based on the reviews.
When I started reading it as a bedtime story to him and his 7 yr old brother, I found it hard to believe how kind people had been!
Unless I'm missing something, and it's written by a child, I have to disagree with the number of stars awarded.

The writing style's appalling, stilted and really hard to read. It would be a polite understatement to say it didn't flow.
I found myself having to go back to re-read sections as I found myself tripping up repeatedly.

These are just a couple of the painful passages within the book:

"That really made Mike mad because he had to do it all over again. He was very mad that he had to do it all over again. But he did do it again and it was better than before!"

This is a prime example of the inelegant style:

"That way you don't have to make separate rooms full of red stone to power your machines. Or you don't have to make a basement for your house just for red stone. This was going to be very helpful if he was going to add red stone machines to his house. He could not wait to tell Mark how to make a mini red stone machine."

You get the idea he's happy about red stone, yeah?

Also, the punctuation is sparse almost to the point of invisibility. And for some weird reason the text is justified, i.e the left and right edges are straight, box-like. This might work on a large page, but this is the size of an average paperback, so there are large, unsightly gaps on the page, which again makes for difficult reading.

It's advertised as the author's first book, and in all honesty looks to me like vanity press.
