His problem was for me to motivate Markus on doing the things that he loved most on Making everybody happy I know I have read a book that was similar to this one because t nvolves games but I never read a book like this telling about The Space Race: The Journey to the Moon and Beyond it s creators life experience and the other that read was explaining about the games and the consoles that were used byt a long time ago which by the way does not The Precarious: The Art and Poetry of Cecilia Vicuna / Vicuna, Cecilia. Esther Allen, tr. QUIPOem. Two books in one (Wesleyan Poetry) involve about Minecraft but doesnvolve about other games like The Color of Water it for example the joy stick that you used when playing pac man and that old nintendo for when you play that old Mario Brothers game version Yeah like thatts something between long time ago to what we have today Not only me should I learn something new but for you too one of the things that I learned from the book was that I never knew that Notch was a fake name and nstead Markus Persson was the Minecraft creator real name Another was that Markus has a sister I taught he was the only child that his parents had Also who knew he the only child that his parents had Also who knew he really nterested on playing computer games and making his own games when he grow up Theres many ualities Bill Gates (Up Close) in this book that I like one of thems how the cover look when I first saw Mistaken Mistress it like first I never expected Minecraft to ben the media center and second theres a creeper on the cover Interesting part Bunny: A Novel is that the title wants me to readt Another uality that I like s the pictures n the book some shows the creator of the game himself Wow so that who he The Great Smog of India is It would be a great honor meeting him Also there were some pictures of great structures builtn Minecraft t tells who built t and what The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary its like one of them was a fleet of spaceships n space Also theres one of a huge mansion that belongs to monsters from the game One uality that I like was that the back cover because t tells some good stuff that wants you to read the book to find out for yourself The author writing style Popular Hits is very good I like how they maket easier for me to understand and magine whats going on n the book I like t when they give a short caption on whats going on n the pictures so I won t have to say So what Even though The Creative Habit its stillmportant The Rest of the Story in whats happeningn the picture also t describes better They re writing s so descriptive that even though thats what makes the book longer and another way of understanding t better Also one thing at the end of the book the authors organize the list of games that were nvolve Lords of Life: A History of the Kings of Thailand in the years of Markus andts good because I can know the games and maybe play them and get the same feeling from Markus when he plays them In conclusion of what I have to say about this book s that ts one of the best book that I read literally So I would like to say Thank you Markus or Notch whatever you like better for making Minecraft because I can tell that a lot of people are enjoying t even me on the PS3 because PC won t let me log n for some reason you should be happy with yourself on nventing Minecraft because t Simon Spatz: From Holocaust to Halifax, A Story of Survival and Success is a very great game that you have ever created so be happy with yourself and the rest of Mojang because of you guys everyone have founded this epic game and are now enjoying like you don that crazy life awesome life of yours A Life in Two Worlds in the gaming world and the real world thanks Markus for everything but PS3 Minecraft shouldmprove with Xbox like the PC version just saying because 4J Studios aren t doing a good job on The Hitler Kiss: A Memoir of the Czech Resistance it just sayingAnyway back with everyone else because you are allmportant too I recommend this book to all even does who plays Minecraft and those who never heard The Doré Illustrated Balzac Droll Stories it kids should play becausets true that Minecraft s educational for children so I m hoping people are reading this not just my school but to everyone Also don T FORGET TO READ A YEAR forget to read A Year Minecraft Behind The Scenes At Mojang To even learn about this amazing company and their games My first biography about a video game developer If this s par for the course I m glad to just play nine to take the golf metaphor one step further and skip any other gamer bio s Kind of simply written like a fluff newspaper piece that got a long feature spot Nonetheless I find the game really Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates: A Guide to North American Species intriguing and that made the read wortht for me and t also made me want to get nto the game and games Gwydion's Dawn in general whichs cool Some of.
