Summary

Here is a thrilling adventure story about a mysterious underground world, read by Jack Davenport. Fourteen-year-old Will Burrows lives with his parents and younger sister Rebecca in London. He has little in common with any of them, except for a passion for digging, which he shares with his father, a museum curator and doctor of archaeology. When his father suddenly disappears after a row with his mother, the police believe he has just gone away for a while to cool down. But Will is unconvinced, and decides to investigate with his best friend, Chester.

Unsatisfying Story Telling.

This story is meant to be a great one, the narrator was very good though.
However I was sadly disappointed at how much content was missing from this Audio book! I have the actual paper back books and there were some major story points missed out in this version.
Deeper (second book in the series) seems to be better, but refers back to content from the first book which wasn't actually told in the audio book. I'd suggest not buying this but rather buying the actual book instead! some major parts have been missed, for examle Will meeting Cal's cat OR when he and Cal go out with Uncle Tam to meet his friends among other parts, but I don't want to give any spoilers.

get the unabridged version!

Main recommendation: get the unabridged version. The abridged version is so chiseled--it feels like you go right from "set up" to plot summary, and then it's over.

fabulous

I can't tell you how great this book is! My grade six learning centre boys loved it! They actually ran to class and begged to listen/read it. The discussion was incredible. The language including metaphores, personal experiences the characters had that my students could relate to and the historical content was so well connected! We want more!
