Downsiders is an easy to follow story. It brings real life issues to a fictional surrounding. I like the way Downsiders used real history to bring to life its story. Although it is doubtful there is a civilization of people living in the unused tunnels under NY Downsiders allows your imagination believe it could be true. I can see myself taking a 2nd look at drains and man hole covers in the future. The story line itself brings to heart changes and rules we would all break to feel that special something felt by another. It also shows how important it is to bring the truth to someone¿s own existence. It enables them to see what other adventures they are deserved. A novel that brings in tradition, perseverance, acceptance, reason and love. With an interesting twist on what might be out there if we would all slow down and look. I would recommend it to others to read and enjoy. If there would be anything I could change would be the end. I feel there could have been a better way for the Downsiders to enjoy the Topside and kept better to their traditions.

This book is amazing with great detail. Neal Shusterman has created aworld that everyone can relate to but then again they can't. Since they do not live underground. But everyone has a feeling that they don't belong somewhere. I absolutley love this book and fell in love with the characters. x0o Kim

This was a good book, but there are many things that could be changed to make it better. Some parts seem realistic, and others are completely fanciful. I wished the end told more about the outcome of the characters.

Downsiders is a book full of surprises you never know what Shusterman is going to throw at you and you could think one thing is going to happen and the exact opposite does. Talon is just an ordinary boy except for one thing, he lives below New York City. He lives his life everyday not having the sun or the sky in his life. Every downsider knows that it is forbidden to go to topside, but sometimes it has to be done. Talon is not like all of the others he wants to go to the topside out of curiously not just to revive the things needed to live. His little sister gets very ill and only topside medicine will heal her. He goes on a mission to get medicine to help his ill sister. Talon never expects to make a friend from the topside even after all of the rumors and awful things he has heard about the topside and their people.He meets a topsider who decides to help him out instead of sending him to the authorities. This girl is Lindsay, she has just moved to New York City to live with her dad and does not expect to meet someone that lives under her feet. Lindsay has never heard of the downsiders so believing everything that Talon was telling her took a lot of trust. He leaves and for some reason decides to return to her and show her where he lives while everyone else is busy. They become friends and begin to have feelings for each other. What will happen when two worlds that are nothing alike combine? Will Lindsay tell people Talon's secret and cause damage to him and his whole community? Read downsider by Neal Shusterman to go on a journey with Talon and Lindsay to see what happens when a topsider and a downsider become friends?

Downsiders is a book about a group of people who live under New York City, known as the Downsiders. They take people in who don't fit in with the Topside, which leads to a whole series of events for the Downside. It is an easy book to read and follow but it does get a bit repetitive. I think most people will be able to pick up this book and be able to say it is decent at least. It fits a lot of reading interests and should be a good book for most.
