    This is my review for the whole series. There are 5 books and they are all equally wonderful. I bought this series about 3 years ago, but never read them. They just sat on my shelf. Every time I looked at the back, it just didn't draw my interest. I'm not sure why, but I just do not enjoy books that take place underground (City of Ember, Tunnels, etc.). The fact that this takes place underground initially turned me off. However, I decided to give it a try, and I am very glad that I did. The story is very exciting, and all the books were very difficult to put down. The new world is an exciting and interesting place (although at times it is a bit illogical).

    My one concern with the book is that even though it is billed for 11-12 year olds, it does seem to have a lot of killing and dying. I think you'd have to be a mature 12 year old to read it. There are also some other serious themes that may be difficult for young readers. Overall, though, I highly recommend this series. It hooked me from the start, and kept me interested the whole time. Be warned: You really have to read the whole series as it's one continous story. The good news is that it is all written!

    I read this series when I entered middle school. I have to say, it is still (six years later) one of my favorite series of all time. Yes, I have read the Hunger Games Trilogy. However, I must say that it pales in comparison to this series.
    I am not one to cry at books or movies, but I was brought to tears as I read the final two books of the series. The deaths of certain characters were portrayed well, and I got a real sense of the emotions the characters felt throughout the series.
    Also, I haven't found a series yet that has touched me in the way this series has. Single books, like To Kill A Mockingbird and various other classics and even some young adult novels, have had some impact on me and I have felt connections to them, of course. However, I always have difficulty in finding a SERIES that remains consistently well-written and enjoyable (and heartbreaking at the same time!) throughout. Susan Collins has definitely written a successful series in Gregor the Overlander. Or, at least she has in my book.

    Oh my god.
    Let me start this by saying this series and the author deserve ALL the praise, hype, and media attention that Twilight and that hack Stephanie Meyer got.
    First, I'll start by talking about Gregor and the Code of Claw, the final book in the series.
    NO other book (save Redwall, when I was about 8) made me feel this strongly about a character and their (assumed) death. NO other book I know of potrayed such obvious (for the YA audience), yet such effective symbolism. NO other SERIES I have read has such amazing differentiation of characters through dialogue, which was, again, obvious, but effective - I could tell races, and hell, INDIVIDUALS of the SAME race apart just by the way they talked.
    The world that Collins built was just amazing. Having its roots in such reality, yet being a world of fantasy, felt so natural. The Underland would be on the top list of fictional places to visit, despite all the video games that make up most of my time.
    Gregor himself wasn't a spectacular character. In fact, he was a bit of a Gary Stu - however, his emotions were all real - so real to make me keep reading and not put down the book in disbelief. It was the supporting characters, however, who made the book (I'm looking at you, Ripred)
    The Underland Chronicles series will make you cry on multiple occasions. There's a rather bittersweet ending, but I feel it fits the books themselves.
    The whole package comes together - spectacular writing, amazing characterization, awesome world-building...
    Oh, but this is a YA book! Well, too bad, adults, so is Harry Potter. And I can guarantee you that this book can live up to all the expectations for YA books left in the wake of the aforementioned magic-based epic.

    Could NOT put these books down.....they caused what my daughter calls a 'book binge' - where you ignore all other responsibilities and get rather irritated when interrupted until you foggily come up for air - only to ask with an eerie urgency where the next book in the series is.... now I want to read everything by this author.

  5. Alissa Alissa says:

    It has adventure, mystery, romance, and science fiction (the guy finds a whole city under his apartment building after all). Gregor and his little sister, Boo (?), fall down an air vent in their apartment buildings laundry room and land into a whole new land where bats and cockroaches and bats are as big as horses (big it's not all as discustng as you would think...they don't really ponder on that fact for a long time) and pale skinned, violet eyed people live. Gregory and Boo, having survived the fall, as instant heroes, and are taken to the palace to dine with the King. there they learn Gregory - the only Overlander to have survived into their land in a long, long time - is expected to complete a prophecy to return peace to their land. Each book has it's own prophecy, with the Great Prophecy left for the last book The Code of Claw. Like i said, romance and mystery, mixed in with a ton of adventure makes this series hard to put down.

    These books are a fabulous young adult fantasy read. (I should note that I typically don't read the fantasy genre.) I couldn't put them down and read all four quite quickly. (I had to wait a bit for the fifth book.) The underworld is so wonderfully described that it sucks you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I could go so far to say I liked it even more than the Harry Potter series. SERIOUSLY!
    The only bummer is that Collins isn't going to continue writing this series. Number five is really the last one. Darn!

  7. Becca Becca says:

    I loved all of them. You don't get a better series about a 12-yr-old. That actually surprised me in the second book - because I read it so long after the first - Gregor is only 12. I liked the way anagrams came into play in the fourth one, and Lizzie thinking Gregor was like Gorger.

    I definitely recommend these books.

    I really can't wait to get into this series... I love Suzanne Collins!

    Man, I love this series, but I always forget just how much until I read them again.

    I first read Gregor the Overlander when I was about nine years old, as required reading for my third-grade English class. I was a little girl who loved animals and adventures and stories that involved both of these things, so I was instantly enamoured with the world of the Underland, with its giant, talking creatures—bats and rats and roaches, oh my—and non-stop action.

    I think I also liked it because it was relatable. Because Gregor, when it comes down to it, is just a regular kid, and seeing him get swept up into this fantastical world made me think, Hey, that could happen to me, too! I was, from then on, obsessed with fantasy, with searching for any hint of a stranger world beyond this one. I was already a bookworm before, but if any series instilled my love of books, I’m certain it was this one. Thanks, Suzanne Collins.

    So even after we had finished reading the first book for class, I continued to devour the rest of the series. I was so into it, this world of creepy creatures and people who spoke in strange ways and fought with swords upon the backs of giant bats. And I'm not sure if I realized it back then, or if it’s one of the reasons I liked it so much, but this series is gruesome: There's violence, gore, and quite a bit of death for a children’s series. The Underland is a dark, dark place; I definitely enjoy that aspect more now, having developed a taste for those types of stories over the years. A lot of kidlit is all sunshine and puppies, where this series is more darkness and man-eating rats.

    But! There is still light to be found—one of the main themes of this book is finding hope and courage even in the darkest places. The main character is an eleven year-old kid from New York: he doesn't know what he's doing, and he's definitely seen some stuff a child should never see. But even as he faces impossible quests and creatures who want to kill him, he finds hope, bravery, strength, and love. I think that's something that every kid can look up to.

    For me, I think, I knew I was probably a Gregor—a normal kid who would, let's face it, be totally unequipped to face a terrifying underground world full of giant animals who wanted to eat me—but I wanted to be a Luxa.

    Fierce, bold, and badass, Luxa was my nine-year-old self's icon. At that point I probably hadn't seen many girls like that in stories—even this one revolves around a male MC—and I was completely floored. Here was a girl, around my age, who was the literal queen of a fantastical underground kingdom, who got to ride a bat and go on epic quests and who kicked so. Much. Butt. She had my heart the moment she double-backflipped onto the page.

    Of course, she's not without her flaws: She's arrogant and stubborn and a little bit rude, but she's got her reasons, and honestly, those traits made me love her even more. Because she wasn't always gentle or kind. She was hardened by the world, cold and way more mature than she ought to have to be. But, like Gregor, she’s also just a kid, and I loved seeing her behave like a young girl as much as I loved seeing her be a queen. It brings a duality to her character that I think is really important, especially for young female readers. There are lots of things I think I appreciate more now, as an (semi-)adult reading this series, and Luxa’s character and storyline is one of them. Collins is a pro at creating iconic female characters.

    Basically, this series was everything little kid me wanted (even if I didn’t yet know it) and still everything Big Kid me adores. Gregor will always hold a special place in my heart.

    (Now let's see what happens when I reread The Hunger Games and reawaken my twelve-year-old self.)
