    Story
    "They kissed. They parted. Fantasy meets Reality."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gregor and the Code of Claw to be better than the print version?

    With multiple listenings of the audio, I have not felt the need to read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ripred impressed me with his insights, honesty and devotion. He was Gregor's mentor, a reality check for the Regalian royalty, the hope of the rats even when they did not know it, and the one person who could handle prophecy as it ought to be.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    Paul Boehmer gave enough vocal distinction to make most characters seem differentiated and real. I especially liked Boots, Mrs. Cormaci and Ripred. His style and diction made the story easy to listen to, which I did several times.


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

    I was moved to breathe a sigh of relief when Luxa refused to come above ground and the rock was replaced. Luxa, tender and loving at moments, also revealed herself to be a young Solovet. And if the royal-commoner divide does not doom a relationship with Gregor, her warrior predisposition and ability to stand by and watch him die in quicksand certainly are not good omens. Gregor needs Mrs. Cormaci's healing touch much more than he needs Luxa's hand. Fantasy meets reality.


    Any additional comments?

    Not many sword and sorcery fantasy books paint a picture of battle as realistic as Collins has here. Gregor spends more time in the hospital than in battle, and ends the book needing much healing. The children in the story, though, seem a wee bit older than their stated ages, and I think the story has a lot to offer readers/listeners a wee bit beyond Gregor's thirteen.

    Story
    "A cure for my hunger games hunger!"
    Where does Gregor and the Code of Claw rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was prepared to be disappointed in this book because the Hunger Games series was just so darn good. How could Suzanne Collins possibly have had a whole series published before the phenomenon, that I'd never heard of, that was good?? Well, this was excellent and had me hooked in under a minute.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Code of Claw?

    When the crawlers spoke for the first time with their unique syntax and cadence! "Princess you be, princess!"


    Any additional comments?

    I am addicted! I've read the whole series. Love, love, love!

    "I loved the entire Gregor series"
    Where does Gregor and the Code of Claw rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm not sure which of the Gregor series books I like the best. They were all very entertaining. I have enjoyed this series better than any other audible books so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Lucsa's character because she was so powerful and brave.


    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was very animated in his voice changes, which helped make the characters more real.


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

    Well, no, although I looked forward to my car trips because I new I'd be entertained!


    Any additional comments?

    All age groups will love these books, but some young teens might need a little guidance.

    "Great series!"
    What did you love best about Gregor and the Code of Claw?

    I liked that Gregor was dealing with the reality of being torn between two places. I also love that the main characters are loyal to each other.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Code of Claw?

    When you find out that someone is or is not dead. I don't want to give up a good part of the story.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    The different voices that he uses are very entertaining.


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

    Definitely! The entire family has listened to the book. 11 years old to 60 years old.


    Any additional comments?

    As a parent I search for books that we all can listen to. It is rewarding to find a series that we can share. The conversations that go on about the book have been fascinating. The fact that we have something in common to talk about is great. My husband is always behind us in the book and he often listens in the car after we are done with the book. He is not a big reader but is always asking, what's next?

    "Fabulous Series - get them all!"

    I loved Gregor from the opening of the first book to the closing of the last book. Every scrap and tussle proved that Gregor is a very real boy in a weird world under the city of New York. I wanted the series to go on and on. Keep writing, Suzanne, you are a gifted storyteller.

    Story
    "A teenager no more"
    Where does Gregor and the Code of Claw rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a great book, probably in the top 10, but not the top 5.


    What other book might you compare Gregor and the Code of Claw to and why?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    Yes, because I wanted to know the end of the saga.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great family read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    We all loved Boots, the 'pincess' and her funny sayings.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    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

    "Loved the series but needed one or more chapters"
    Would you listen to Gregor and the Code of Claw again? Why?

    Yes, I will probably listen to this series again. It is well written with a compelling storyline.


    What other book might you compare Gregor and the Code of Claw to and why?

    I would compare this series to Guardians of Ga'Hoole series by Kathryn Lasky and Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage.


    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voice actor.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint about the book is the conclusion. It seems to be a let down that Gregor just goes home...
