    I recently went solo dining with the 2nd book in the series and sat down at a counter speeding through the large font and well spaced text The restaurant started to fill up and another solo diner sat down next to me I glanced over at his magazine and saw that it was a scientific journal open to an article about the brain I casually angled the cover of my Scholastic published book away from his view and kept reading very self conscious of the approximately 18 grades of school between our reading materialsSighI'm bouncing around in my reading material lately I've been trying to force the weighter books and it's like an overtight pair of jeans Lay back on the bed take a deep breath and hope you can wrestle that zipper up before the oxygen runs out or the button pops off and you lose an eye The YA and younger books are like comfortable sweatpants the waistband slightly stretched and the material over the seat taking on a sheen from wear I need to take in a few sweatpants books before attempting another jeans book Who am I trying to impress? No need to do the David Hasselhoff on Baywatch stomach suckThis is what I repeat to myself when I sit next to someone reading a scientific journal open to an article about the brainyou couldn't sit somewhere else brain guy???The beginning of the 2nd book helped me pinpoint why I liked this 1st book so much With the next in the series Gregor is suddenly having these abilities he never had before Booooo The first book moved forward with his own average self no special powers needed While he may have been written as selfless than the typical boy his age he made mistakes and was cranky like a real boy When he was courageous loyal loving or expressed empathy it wasn't unusual it could be duplicated by any child who read this book The value of that You too can be like this Gregor nodded He could never hate people very long because he always ended up finding out something sad about them that he had to factor in Like this kid at school everybody hated because he was always pushing little kids around and then one day they found out his dad had hit him so much he was in the hospital With stuff like that all Gregor could feel was bad WonderfulOh the story was set in this uest for his father with a fantastic imaginary world underground featuring people who had lived there so long that they were pale haired translucent skinned and violet eyed The allies and enemies were gigantic bats cockroaches and rats This is meant for a younger audience than The Hunger Games trilogy so probably elementary age The uest kicked off with an awful set of prophetic verse not as bad as Brian One Trick Pony Jacues but nowhere near the soaring glory to me of Susan Cooper The ending was rushed But I loved it for keeping the hero ordinaryMy favorite line? From my favorite character the little sister Boots I poopLookie The suare brackets don't insert a colon any

    so this is how superweak my life is on friday i rushed home from work in the rain to get some homework done whee but then i ended up writing that wuthering heights review inspired by the rain and the clouds etc and i did some work but not a ton and i thought to myself what do i really want to be doing? and the answer was put on my pajamas eat peanut butter pretzels and read unchallenging children's books so i did and you can all suck it with your parties and balls and galas 'cuz i had myself a nice timei didn't like it as much as the hunger games; which is teen fiction not juvie so maybe i'm not as developmentally stunted as i thought look i'm growing up before your eyes she has a real knack for pacing which is way important in children's literature than adult just because of attention span particularly now when the options for children are increasingly electronic and faster paced a book really has to capture the imagination in order to hold a child's attention and i think this does a good job of that i also appreciate her very low emphasis on sentimentality it is less pronounced than in the hunger games because of the younger audience but it's an adventure book life's hard things die and i think that's a good element in children's literature; her lack of prettifying realities i will probably read the other books in the series providing my social life doesn't improve but i don't feel the same urgency to read them that i do for the teen series it may be the subject matteryounger audience thing or the lack of a true cliffhanger at the end of the book but i probably will get to them it was enjoyable and if you have children you should probably pick these up and pretend you are reading them together because your kids enjoy themand now i can give greg back his copy and that gets one book out of my house which means there's room for one book basically this is how the problem exacerbatescome to my blog

    When Gregor falls after his little sister down the laundry shoot he finds himself in a new land He is faced with deciding where to place his loyalties how to survive and given the opportunity to search for his father who unaccountably disappeared 2 years ago This book has ruined my entire day I have laundry to fold dinner to cook breakfast to eat 3 papers to write and lesson plans to develop Instead I've spent my morning snuggled under a down uilt devouring Gregor the Overlander As soon as I finished it I slid into my car and ran back to work to collect the next four books in the series It looks like the rest of my life is going on hold for awhile Good by responsibiliy Good by family HELLO UNDERLANDERSI have always loved fairytales and mysteries in the Agatha Christie model It's restful and reassuring to know there may be trials and tribulations but good will always defeat evil and the deserving will live happily ever afterGregor the Overlander carries these themes forward but provides subtle opportunities for the reader to uestion their convictions about right and wrong through the protagonist's encounters with various species in the Underworld Eually appealing is the sharing of Gregor's thoughts as he begins to recognize the limits he has set for himself with self imposed rules after his father's disappearance So often books of this genre for the elementary crowd become preachy and moralistic Suzanne Collins does not preach She invites the reader to explore issues about tolerance responsibility growing up and loyalty for themselves This first book is the eual of the Harry Potter books exploring the same issues with an emotional power and linguistic accessablity for the 5th 8th grade crowd I've listed a few of my favorite uotes below 1And then there was Tick Brave little Tick who had flown into the face of an army of rats to save his baby sister Tick who never spoke much Tick who shared her food Tick who was after all just a roach Just a roach who had given all the time she had left so that Boots could have Somehow Tick's sacrifice had crushed whatever thin shell remained between him and sorrow From now on he felt an allegiance to the roaches he knew would never fade2 Well Boot's courage might only count when she could count but her ability to love counted all the time3 No one who spends years with the rats can expect to be unchangedbut will his mind and body heal I believe so4 He was done with the rule now For good Even if times got bad he would never again deny himself the possibility that the future might be happy even if the present was painful He would allow himself dreamsBecause I teach in a school where far too many children have parents and siblings in jail I intend to use this book as one of a collection about children who overcome the odds to determine their own destinyReviews 1 Booklist starred November 15 2003 Vol 100 No 6 Recommends for gr 4 7 and statesCollins creates a fascinating vivid highly original world and a superb story to go along with itThis is sure to be a solid hit with young fantasy fans2 Horn Book starred Spring 2004 writes Collins sends a reluctant Gregor on the classic hero's journey in this fast paced immensely satisfying narrativeBoth of these reviews would incline me towards the book's purchase Several of the other reviews also mention it is one of a series and they all recommend it for the same age groups What the reviewers fail to say is now much parents would enjoy sharing this book with their children

    The covers of the Underland Chronicles do them no end of disservice Since my policy is to judge a book by its cover it took reading The Hunger Games to convince me to pick them up I had always assumed they would be machine generated chapter books with mythical creatures protecting or seeking some ring or sword or who knows what that has some symbolic meaning or doesn't Suzanne Collins however is in no way machine generated She is Dostoyevski for the young reader crowd While she uses the uest trope in each of the Underland stories her reflections of politics and international history are both gentle and unflinchingly horrifying Kids have to learn about genocide somehow I guessIn comparison to other popular child soldier or children save the world stories the Underland Chronicles are not comforting in the way Harry Potter and Twilight are nor are they as morally outraged and uncomfortable as Ender's Game but I found them honest than all of those Collins never seems overcome by her own power as an author self indulgent in her story telling or worried that her audience won't understand her overall message That may be the mark of a good editing team and if so A to them Her writing is not as lyrically beautiful as Kate DiCamillo's whose is for that matter? but like Dostoyevski's it is very effective in reflecting doubts about human nature and at times touching It makes me wish once again that Dostoyevski was able to edit well

    I actually got all teary eyed over the death of an insect Can you believe it?A great book I'm glad I gave it a try although I wasn't sure at the beginning if it would be too young for my taste Collins has created a fascinating world with the Underland and the book is full of amazing characters insects and rodents includedOn to book two

    With a few exceptions I am not typically a big fan of science fictionfantasy nor of bugs and rats and dark places Had I not read and loved The Hunger Games I never would have even considered reading this book And I would have most certainly been missing outThis is Suzanne Collins' first novel and it is uite a first novel Gregor the Overlander centers around an eleven year old boy and his little sister who fall through a grate in the laundry room of their apartment complex After being hurtled down a long tunnel they find themselves in the midst of a strange Underland full of talking giant cockroaches rats bats and spiders as well as humans with translucent skin and violet eyes As the children become acuainted with the strange beings and history of this mysterious land a prophetic uest forms to find Gregor's long lost father believed to have fallen victim to some of the creatures here years earlier and lots of adventure ensuesApparently the author was inspired to write this book after wondering what Alice and Wonderland may have been like had it taken place in a city where one is likely to fall down a manhole than a bunny hole I thought it was a fantastic story; a real page turner that amidst all the adventure asks its reader to consider issues of friendship responsibility tolerance acceptance determination and loyalty Very imaginative and well written I highly recommend it particularly if you enjoy YA fantasy or loved The Hunger Games

    I want to give this book so many than 5 stars It was SO SO FREAKING GOOD I pressed the exclamation mark on my phone really hard then just for extra emphasis Being a book that is intended for younger readers than me I thought this would just be a fun little read However in all honesty it had me gripped from beginning to end I loved the characters They had so much depth than I expected them to I mean Gregor is an 11 year old kid who has been kind of been forced to be the man of the house after his dad disappeared mysteriously 2 years ago He doesn't let himself dream about happy times because he is struggling to actually be happy with his family not whole Bro you're breaking my heart Then there is his 2 year old sister Boots a nickname who adds so much to the book with her innocence She kind of reminds me of Sunny Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events because she is so adorable and obviously isn't speaking properly yet but she is integral to the team and actually helps bring them all togetherThen there are all the giant animals and they are so cool you can't help but care about them Even the bugs This isn't a spoiler particularly because the prophecy says that 4 of the group of 12 will die but when one of them does I actually had to stop reading I sat there in stunned silence and mourned the loss of a freaking bug Some of the other things I loved are the world because it's underground and I like the idea of an underground community the relationship between humans and animals I'm an animal lover so I really appreciated that a mysterious prophecy I really like seeing prophecies unfold in books the fact that it actually surprised me with some of the things that happen I sometimes find it easy to see what is gonna happen but not this time and how addictive and action packed it isChances are you have read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins too and if you like her writing and like fast paced books and you like middle grade books then you should definitely try this I implore you because it needs hype

    Well that was sufficiently fantastic I naturally am a HUGE The Hunger Games fan and basically wanted to read this because SUZANNE COLLINS Obviously my brain had a lot of pressure on this book aaaandit's very different obviously from THG It's middle grade It's an adventure with prophecies and talking animals And I really enjoyed itThe characters were adorable The main character is Gregor DUH and he's a fabulous older brother but he's not perfect At the same time though he didn't make a bucket load of dumb decisions which I'm SO grateful for I really hate stupid decisions Ergh But Gregory was really smart and logical and had a bit of sass and he wouldn't leave his little sister EVER Which leads me to the cutest human in the universe Boots Well her real name is Margaret but who's going to call her that? HA BOOTS IS SO CUTE She's the most friendly loveable little kid in the world And her mannerisms and speech were so totally spot on for being a two year old I read a lot of books and often feel the babies aren'twellrealistic But Boots is SO realistic Trust me I just spent the morning with my 2yrs niece and then read this in the afternoon 100% of realism to Boots A cookie will basically fix everything I was just so completely in love with Boots and I thought Gregor was terrificSo my only problem wasI couldn't care less about the animals Call me a hater actually um don't BUT I HATE BUGS I FREAKING HATE RATS AND BATS AND BUGS So when they died and applause for MG books that kill thingspeoplewhatever I just was like Oh so what? Which is um heartless of me But they're bugs UghAlthough is it just me or is the good rat Ripred like another version of Haymitch? Snarky and wise I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE SUZANNE COLLINS Although um I know these books came first but shhh don't ruin my cacophonies Anyway this was fantastic and I want to read the rest of the series ASAP

    Proof that Suzanne Collins can be so much better than that soulless commercialized dreck known as The Hunger Games Gregor the Overlander is a terrific mysterious fantasy novel with an elaborate imaginative underground city world that could rival with Inside the Shadow City
