Gregor the Overlander is a great tale of a secret underground world that a group of humans migrated to long ago. Gregor, a kid living in New York City, finds a gateway to this underground world, or underland in his apartment's laundry room. He and his sister Boots then enter a world of wonder, inhabited by giant cockroaches, bats, spiders, rats, and the humans. Upon his arrival, Gregor is taken to the human's city of Regalia, where he is informed of a quest he must take part in in order to find his dad, who vanished to the underland over two years ago. His dad is held a prisoner of the rats, and it is Gregor's job to rescue him and bring him back to New York City. This book does a fantastic job of portraying the setting and characters of this book. This book is sure to keep the reader's attention with it's intriguing plot and memorable characters, and is a book the reader will remember.

    Zoe's Book Reviews

    I love this book so much with the giant bugs, the bats and the idea of a underground city. Luxa is my favorite character. It would be awesome if I could ride a bat.

    Gregor and his sister Boots find themselves falling into a sticky situation when they fall through the basement of they're apartment where the meet the crawlers or as we call hem cockroaches and not the normal tiny ones cockroaches that are four feet tall. The cockroaches take them to the arena where they meet Luxa. Luxa takes them to the prophecy room where Gregor learns that he must go on a quest.

    This is a wonderful book that evreyone can enjoy. Suzanne Collins has an amazing imagination that she used to write the book, the first in the book in the Underland Chronicles.
