    "Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods"

    Fantastic! Great intro of the mother. The ending leaves a wonderful opening for a continued saga. Hoping that Suzanne Collins keeps the plot alive.

    "I am a convert"

    Never heard of Gregor or this series before, but now I am a convert. Excellent!

    Qualifies as a great book and fairy tale you are sad to hear it end.


    Love this author and style of writing. Was completely pleased with the narrator and the book content.

    Audible was too slow to get the last book in the series so I had to buy the hard copy--its that good!

    "Great Series"
    What did you love best about Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

    Suzanne Collins really brings the story alive. I love the way she developed the characters in each book. She also introduces new characters in each new book. I am sad when she kills off her characters that she convinced the reader to love.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

    The cliff hanger at the end. It made me want to purchase the next book right away.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in the series. He has a good range of voices to fit the variety of characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Hamnet and Frill died.

    I did find myself laughing out loud a couple of times

    "Another excellent story by Suzanne Collins !"
    Where does Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This story and its' characters will always be some of my favorites. It is easy to get lost in the adventures and the atmosphere of the Underland.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I listened to the first book because I enjoyed Collins other books. Once finished, I couldn't wait to follow the characters to their next adventure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It is hard for me to target just one. I enjoyed the imagery Collins provided of the jungle and the characters' difficulties navigating the dangers. I really enjoyed the interactions between RipRed and Gregor.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I would constantly listen to books if I could. The further I read in the series, the more time I spent listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I realize this book was written for young adults, but, like the Hunger Games, it has an appeal for all ages.

    What other book might you compare Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods to and why?

    As good as the Harry Potter series.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    Paul does a great job with different voices and this whole series would not be nearly so enjoyable without this performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't noramlly like young adult (teenage) novels but this whole series is wonderful.

    This is a book for kids but was quite enjoyable. The narrator was great, the plot was sometimes intense. The writer did a great job. I am looking forward to more by Ms. Collins.

    "So much (unnecessary) pain!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods to be better than the print version?

    I would, but I have been listening to Gregor since the first book, and Paul Boehmer changed some of the minor characters voices, which was a little disappointing, but overall, he has had a very good performance. I wouldn't choose the print version over the audio one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

    When they find the queen in the jungle.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That is funny because it is also the most enraging scene. It happens when they found out that they had been in that awful quest for nothing (except for Hazzard).
    Another moment I enjoyed was when Gregor told Mrs. Cormacy the truth about his disappearances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Certainly, but there was so much pain and suffering from the beginning, that sometimes I had to stop listening, put myself together and get it back.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book, but only if you have read the previous ones.
