I didn’t know Suzanne Collins wrote other books (besides The Hunger Games) until I was assigned this for class. While I definitely like The Hunger Games more, I sincerely enjoyed this one too. The Underland world was pretty great. I found myself especially favoring the relationship between Boots and the cockroaches.
There are more books in the series, though I’m not exactly sure how many. I know more than four, possibly five. This book ends in such a way that I’d be satisfied enough not to read the others. We all know I’ll pick them up anyway. I said I wouldn’t finish the Percy Jackson series and we all know how that ended.
In the mood for a classic kid-warrior saving the world with his gold heart and steadfast loyalty? Need a fast read with a happy ending? I’d try this one out then. It’s got the potential to delightfully surprise you.
