Gregor The Overlander by Suzanne Collins


"No" yelled Gregor as he lunged for her, but Boot's tiny frame seemed to be sucked into the air duct. Without thinking, Gregor thrust his head and shoulders into the hole. The betal grate smacked into his back. the next thing he knew, he was falling down, down, down into empty space.

When Gregor, a normal eleven year old boy, falls down an air duct after his two year old little sister, Boots, he never imagined the adventure that awaits him in the Underland, a land beneath a land. In the underland, there is a prophecy, that a boy from the overland, the warrior, would come, when the humans in the underland were in grave danger, and he would rescue the entire city. An Overland warrior, a son of the sun, May bring us back light, he may bring us back none. But gather your neighbors and follow his call or rats will most surely devour us all. When the people in the Underland believe that the warrior is Gregor, he refuces to go on the quest, that is, until he finds out that his father, who discapeared a few year ago, is in the underland, being held captive by the rats. when he hears this, he decides to lead the quest after all. Will he bring back light? or will he bring back none?

I like this book, a lot. I know a lot of people have already read this, but I just finished it last night.
I thought that this book was going to be creepy, but instead I thought it was really funny.
I would give this 4 1/2 stars - 5.

If you like this book, and you would like to read more, there is an entire series of Gregor the Overlander books.
