This irresistible first novel tells the story of a quiet boy who embarks on a dangerous quest in order to fulfill his destiny — and find his father — in a strange world beneath New York City.
When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor’s arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland’s uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it — until he realizes it’s the only way to solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.

I don’t usually read children’s fiction but I loved The Hunger Games series so I wanted to try something else by Suzanne Collins.

This book really impressed me, it had more action and was much darker than I thought it would be. It was really enjoyable and I read it really fast.

The book progressed quickly and the plot was really good. I loved the characters and their development throughout the story.

Rating: 4 stars
