Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times-bestselling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the bestselling Hunger Games trilogy.
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. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.
"Collins introduces her young heroes Gregor and his little sister Boots into a wonderland....A fantastically engaging place." (Publishers Weekly)
"Collins creates a fascinating, vivid, highly original world and a superb story." (Booklist)

Transfixing: We stood still to concentrate better.
Yes my 9 year old daughter & I are about to re-listen confident that Gregor the Overlander will be sufficiently powerful to hold the attention of 3 teens on a 4 hour car journey!
There are many memorable moments of tension & Gregor growing stronger in his self belief after each event. Escaping from the spiders was tense.
Paul Boehmer's 'Boots' is noteworthy as he makes the child innocent strength convincing.
Gregor the Overlander, the Underlander's Champion.
As an adult listening to a child's book, I liked the development of the main character as a reluctant hero taking on the responsibility of others out of doing best for his sister: quite normal but in abnormal surroundings.
