Awesome

This book is a marvelous piece of work from Suzanne Collins. Though not as violent and adventurous as the hunger games, it's a great book for children.

good book

This is a really good book about a guy named Gregor going through prophecys.

Good book

great book. At first I didn't really want to read Gregor, But when my sister read the fist chapter to me I changed my mind. In Gregor, Gregor and his baby sister Boots fall through the vent in their laundry room and land in the Underland. Gregor is a great book.

Great book

My sister read the wohle series and I am still on this one and on the first chapter but it is good so far and they had to stop the chapter at the good part, when Boots falls in the hole and Gregor has to go in aswell. But so far it is a great book!

awesome

this is literally my favorite book ever!

Review

After reading this book, I had to get my hands on the next one as soon as possible. This is an amazing story about a boy named Gregor who falls into another world called the Underland with his sister Boots.There they are discovered by giant cockroaches and brought to the humans. He tries to escape and is attacked by rats. Soon, he discovers that he is the warrior of a prophecy and has to go on a quest to save his dad who dissapeared two years ago. His companions are Boots, two Underlanders, two roaches, two bats, two spiders, one rat, and hopefully later, his dad. But can they succeed? Read the book to find out

o no

my class read this together last year and i was freaking out. it's disgusting and i didn't really like it. I like romance. I'm sorry, but i just didn't really like this book. It wasn't right for me.

Great Series

Fun read for kids and adults. It's amazing how the author can make you sympathize with a cockroach character!

iffy

ok book

believable

If you stop and think about what is happening in the story, you will realize that is it impossible, but while reading you become so immersed in the story that you forget rationality, and truly believe. Giant rats, bats, and cockroaches seem real, and the pale-skinned underlanders seem normal. Great towering cities of stone, and pitch black tunnels become customary. This book, and entire series is absorbing. I guarantee that after this book, you will want to read them all. For those of you Hunger Games fans, same author, equally great novel.
