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.

I remain a stalwart Suzanne Collins fan. This middle grade reader is well-paced, filled with good humor and commentary, and has a very likable cast of characters.

I picked up Gregor the Overlander partly because I enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy and partly to become more familiar with some of the more popular children's novels. I also recommended it to my son for his latest book project. I was caught up in the book from the beginning. There is richness and believability to the characters that draws you into their world and sometimes leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. While it doesn’t have the depth of the Hunger Games, and it really shouldn’t since it is a children’s book, I found it a highly entertaining read.

This is a great book!!! It starts out slow at first, but gets way better. I'd recommend this book to anybody who asked whether they should read this or not.

This book is about a boy who finds a secret underground world. He goes down to see a bunch of large insects and creatures telling him that he is the hero of the prophecy. Gregor needs to fufill the prophecy and find his dad before he has to stay there forever. This is a good book. It is slow at first, but it will get better.

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.
