Great stories

All of the books are a great adventure. The ending leaves you wondering... The books are a must read, if not a little ignored it deserves a place right next to Harry Potter and The Hunger Games

I liked The Hunger Games a lot more. I think it was written much better and had a more interesting story and a stronger theme/moral. The Overlander books seemed to only figure out what it's moral was during the last book. War is bad, pretty simple. The Hunger Games was much more thought provoking and complex. Maybe it's because I'm an adult reader that I just didnt like it as much? I'm not sure..I kept comparing it to The Chronicles of Narnia which is immeasurably better in just about every way. Another flaw was that I felt the author broke an unspoken rule by involving parents. I think this kind of fantasy should be a kids own world, where they can be a warrior and save the day without their parents around. All that said, its still a good book that I enjoyed. Interesting, developed characters that you really care about, cool twists, subtle foreshadowing that makes you want to speculate what's going to happen. All the basics you need for in a good story. Great for kids Gregors age. Only ok for an adult fan of fantasy.

    Huh?

    I read the entire series. I find it hard to believe that this is for anyone young. This book is grisly, bloody, murderous, and downright graphic. I wouldn't want a child of mine to read it. I like way out there books, but this was beyond my grasp. So many contradictions I can't list them all here. Soil, no soil, light, no light, modern medicine, stone doors, etc., etc., etc. I'm glad I'm done.
