coming from a fathers perspective, I can honestly say, I just do not get the mindset of playing Minecraft. BUT, watching my son get into the game and his world, according to an 8 year old, is cool enough for me to take a look at it as well, at least reading about the adventures.

I happened to come across this book somehow when choosing a story to read on an iPad at bedtime, and am I ever glad I found it. We do chapter readings nightly with my son, this way we can continue the adventure over multiple nights if need be, and this book got us both hooked.

First of all it grabbed him based on the premise of someone being transformed into the digital world, it seems like he's already there when he gets into gameplay. But the story is written so well, that he really got into hearing of the adventures, the close calls and the thought it took for Flynn to prepare his own world and how the path of preparedness was instrumental in his survival.

I even found myself reading into the next chapter when he and I were done, and Im 30 years older. It was that much fun to read this with him. You could see it in his eyes when the dangers were close or if Flynn were to find himself at short odds.

This is a great book and I would and will, highly recommend it to youth to read. Next week we start Log 2. Thanks.

This book is great! Not only did it help me learn stuff about minecraft but it's so good that I wasn't able to put it down. Every time I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it.

I had so much fun reading this book.

I think anyone who likes Minecraft will love reading this book...especially if they like playing in survival mode.

I'm wondering if it could be used to introduce kids (and adults!) to Minecraft. I know some schools are starting to use Minecraft. It might be fun to start with this book.

My other idea is to use it as a gift package. If someone's at a loss about what to get their niece or nephew...they could buy them a gift card from Mojang along with this book.

So, full disclosure: this read was meant for me and the little guy. The little guy is a feisty, Minecraft-obsessed six year old who I read to every night. We have made it through hundreds of picture books, and we are working on reading some chapter books. We started Harry Potter, we are a third of the way through the Oz books - we switch things up all the time... And then he saw this little treasure on my Kindle and we just had to read it. At the public library, similar books literally fly off the shelves. The holds list for Minecraft books are months long, and when you finally get your hands on one, they are like gold for the little demons. The author of Flynn's Log really knows the market and what is working right now.

That said, I have split my review into two parts. The first part is my review, the second, my son's.

I think this book was boring. Boring, boring, boring, boring, boring. It was an internal monologue about a guy who is all of a sudden stuck in an 8-bit videogame and has a slew of tiny little conflicts throughout. I actually give the author a great deal of credit as the conflicts span both internal and external using source material that is just a sandbox type videogame - a videogame with no plot. The game is cool, but the book is really what it says - a log of things he does. Hey, it gets kids to read, it gets kids interested in building things and using their imagination, but boy, every time my kid asked me to read it to him I felt like I wanted to take a pair of pliers and tug out a molar to have some sort of sensory feedback in my bonding experience with him. It was already nighttime. I got snoozy. The only redeeming part of the book were some small (and impressively off-brand original) illustrations that broke up the monotony.

I'm in the middle of reading this book with my two boys, age 5 and 8...and we were all (including myself) completely hooked after the first "Log Entry" (or "chapter"). I promised to read them one chapter each night with them, but they never want to put it down. (This is unusual with my kids, who typically prefer comic-like books and don't usually have patience for chapter books). Although both of my kids play video games, neither has ever played Minecraft. But the idea of being pulled into the world of the game was immediately compelling and fascinating to them. I thought the comparisons between "real life" and life-within-the-game we're really funny and insightful. I also think the first-person narration adds to the overall excitement. Knowledge of Minecraft is unnecessary...but, of course, they are now clamoring to play it! In short, this a great read: ingenious set-up, exciting plot and strong characters. I'm hoping this author writes a sequel.

This is the best book ever, I especially liked the parts where you can feel the suspension just builds up inside of you, and at the end I really wanted to read the second book and then after I saw the last page of the story
I was really disappointed when the story ended because it was getting to the good part at the time. So next week, I'm getting Flynn's log 2
