I can't believe this book is free!
Flynn's Log 1 is an exciting story of survival within the digital world of Minecraft. Despite being disoriented and then injured, Flynn has to quickly acclimate to the world; he builds shelter, risks his life for food, and encounters dangerous creatures from the world of Minecraft. The ending is really intense and exciting, and leads me to think that Stone Marshall has sequels planned for us.
Flynn is believable, and more than that, as a reader I really wanted him to survive and achieve his destiny. I don't want to give too much away, but I really felt for Flynn when he met, and lost, a friend.
I am a teacher, and while I don't play Minecraft, I think this book is better than many of the Minecraft books out there. It is well-written with a fantastic plot, page-turning events, and characters that I actually care to read about. Flynn offers some great advice in the face of challenges. I even learned some great strategies for the game that make me want play it.
Oh, and a bonus: this book features a map to Flynn's world and many illustrations.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a page-turning plot and great characters, and especially to Minecraft enthusiasts looking for a series about the world!
