Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
It is a great book, probably in the top 10, but not the top 5.
Suzanne Collins has a pattern. She makes her beloved characters suffer a lot, and she always kills someone dear to him / her in the end, which might suck for people who like happy endings. And also, her characters suffer extreme poverty and hunger, but they are loyal and true to what they believe.
Yes, to all of Gregor's stories. Paul Boehmer is a great narrator, although he made some slips with some of the minor characters by changing some of their voices.
Yes, because I wanted to know the end of the saga.
Although I've read some comments saying these books might seem like the Harry Potter ones, they DO NOT! There is the similarity of extreme suffering, but Suzanne Collins shows political concepts and ideals in her books which are not seen in the Harry Potter ones.
I think they are worth reading, and if you read Gregor you will have lots of adventures, and you'll even llok at bugs differently, but do not read them if you are expecting something similar to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. Gregor brings a different story. Pleasant and adventures. I recommend it.
Yes, this is a great series especially for 10-12 year olds,it does contain quite a bit of violence however this is tempered by a strong moral code and laid over with humour.
We all loved Boots, the 'pincess' and her funny sayings.
He seemlessly reads all the different voices, at times you wonderif there are more than one reader.he takes it at a nice gentle pace and is very clear
Yes, I will probably listen to this series again. It is well written with a compelling storyline.
I would compare this series to Guardians of Ga'Hoole series by Kathryn Lasky and Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage.
Great voice actor.
Unfortunately, Suzanne Collins did not end the story. It seems to me that she was prepared to write another book but never did. She left too many loose ends with all the significant and some of the secondary characters. The book would have ended much better if she went 10-20 years in the future as J.K. Rowling did with Harry Potter and Collins did with the Hunger Games series. As it stands now,Collins needs to write the actual last book for this series.
This book was a nice conclusion to the Underland series. I enjoyed the entire series and look forward to sharing it with my children. Good clean adventure!
My only complaint about the book is the conclusion. It seems to be a let down that Gregor just goes home...
Gregor and. Boots
For sure great story
This book is awesome but the war scenes and some scenes may not be for kids they are quite violent and descriptive. So this may be a no no if you don't let your kids watch violent bloody movies, it has good character development and it's been written in a typical suzanne Collins style. Good read
This series is wonderful but I have to wonder what on earth Suzanne Collins was thinking when she wrote this ending...It is terrible, it's like she got tired of writing and just decided to stop! I wont say more because I dont want to spoil it for anyone else but PLEASE Ms. Collins...write a 6th book!
I am a fairly sporty type and love sailing competitively. I also enjoy going on motorbike rides. walking and sdancing. Reading was a huge
Full of imagination
Exciting, drama filled, descriptive story with fantastic features and storyline.
He reads honestly and with easy to follow changes for the various characters. He really brings them to life.
It's too long for that but I was keen to get the opportunity to listen more for the whole series.
A great series all round
He did a great job on the whole series! No complaints!
I loved this series, and recently bought the print version for my 10 year old son. I'd prefer he "read" rather than "listen" at his age. But what a great story, clean, suspenseful and I grew to care for the characters.
Lots of excitement.
The last battle with the rats
The whole series follows together
Gregor and Luxa's goodby
