Don’t you just love it when books go from ordinary to out-of-the-ordinary? Gregor the Overlander, by Suzanne Collins, is one of those books. This book, which is one thousand times less violent than the Hunger Games trilogy, is a very good read. Anyone with a good sense of humor will like this book. My favorite character of all in this book is Boots, a.k.a. Margaret, Gregor’s baby sister. I think Mrs. Collins (my mom wants me to be polite) did a very good job on making her sound very realistic, apart from being able to recognize one cockroach from, like, 200,000,000 others.
Anyway, the story in the book is about an 11-year-old boy named Gregor, who falls into an open grate into the Underland. There, he meets new friends who help him try to find his lost dad. Unfortunately, his dad is being held captive by rats, who are as tall as grown men. Will Gregor be able to find his dad? Or will he mashed into pulp by the rats? Find out in Gregor the Overlander (duh, duh, dah)!
