OVERALL RATING 7/10

Great characters, not super accurate to the real game

I was pleasantly surprised by this one! The characters, despite being in a video game, have realistic feelings and desires, and they are kind to one another. I think that this would be a great story for any kid that loves Minecraft! The only complaint I have is that some of the plot would be impossible in Minecraft, such as when they climb down a rope into a cave (there aren't ropes in Minecraft). The inaccuracies might be a little frustrating for any big Minecraft fans reading it. Overall, it's a good story!
