I read the Hunger Games series every night to my son and we both loved them. I think this series is a bit more age appropriate(he's 10 1/2). We are currently on book 3. This is a terrific series and a great read aloud book. Each chapter is exciting and leaves you wanting to read more!

I read this series because I was such a big fan of the Hunger Games, and was amazed. Gregor and his sister find themselves in the Underland, a world beneath New York City and find their way to Regalia, the city where the Underlanders live. They discover that Gregor is to take part in a string prophecies that claims he is the foretold warrior who will save Regalia. The characters are all awesome, and the whole series was perfect. I would definitely recommend this series to fans of the Hunger Games and Percy Jackson!

It is such a great book. It'll definitely hook you into the series. The writing style is certainly unique and a truly awe-inspiring storyline and plot.

I am a seven year old boy and I loved this book. I liked how the characters fell underground into a different world. It made me feel really excited to find out what was going to happen to the characters. The main character is just a normal boy who is around 11 years old. He has to solve lots of problems in order to get himself and his baby sister out of the Underland. His main challenge is to defeat lot of giant rats. He has a team of 11 other creatures to help him including his baby sister.

I once tried reading this when I was younger. I gave up on it but then after moving and getting into a new library I saw it and decided to give it a try again. Story's undoubtedly interesting, as worlds-underneath-worlds books go.

This series is much better than the Hunger Games! Super good book. I don't think I'll ever find another series that's this good

Gregor and his two-year-old sister, Boots, fell through a... hole (?) and into the secret (kinda) underground world called the Underland (kinda obvious name). They learn of the Prophecy of Gray, and has to go on a quest to save their dad, who disappeared from their apartment two years ago and apparently fell through the same air duct as Gregor and Boots and has been imprisoned by the rats.
