    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and 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.

    Joey says: "Second best book series in print"

    Story
    What did you love best about Gregor the Overlander?

    This is a compelling story and Gregor is a very likable main character. I read the books one after another and then got the audio book in hopes that my kids would listen on long car rides. They both like it, which is pretty amazing at 4 and 8. Because Gregor's little sister Boots is two, her periodic remarks are easy for kids to relate to, and add humor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor the Overlander?

    This whole story is very memorable. The setting makes it interesting and the issues are timeless.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    The narration was good. I often find it difficult initially to get used to the narration, because it's not what I am expecting, but it is actually perfect in that it does not get in the way of the story, it just delivers it. He does just enough changing of his voice for each character that it helps with the tracking.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book the whole family can enjoy. My husband is enjoying it as much as I did. I highly recommend it for family trips.
