Of the three books so far in the series, this is the one that I have enjoyed the most. The previous two largely take place in the dismal underground worlds controlled by the Styx, but Freefall is a subterranean area completely untouched by these evil humans. Thus, the general mood from the characters feels lighter, and the spirit of adventure is stronger.

(Spoiler alert!) My favorite part, though would have to be once they get to the very center in which is contained a second sun. I couldn’t qui

After digging through the subterranean world of modern-day London in search of his father, Will Burrows ended up on the run from the diabolical Styx army with his best friend, Chester, and his newly discovered brother, Cal. After an encounter with the Rebecca twins and Styx army, the group of friends fell down a deep hole known as the Pore.

The FREEFALL takes them further into the earth, but they're not alone in the depths of the Pore. Having been mo

Freefall, in my opinion, was all over the place. At the beginning of the book they are on a ledge in one of the Seven Sisters, named The Pore. They survive the fall, and end up finding another human, Martha, on that same layer of The Pore, in which the gravity is abnormally low. I would be amazed that I survived the fall, let alone that there was another person living in The Pore. Martha took Will, Elliot, and Chester in, and they went exploring. They ended up getting Dr. Burrows back from the R ...more
I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been waiting for it to come out for a couple of months after I had finished reading "Deeper" I really like the idea of the whole story and it is a book I found hard to put down. I personally think this book was great until the ending, when the surroundings of the "second sun" place was so similar to "topsoil" life, it has a lack of imagination and mystery. It wasn't the way I would have hoped the book to end, I was expecting a bit more than just some "n ...more

Creo que los autores por fin han dado con los personajes que necesitaban y han logrado orientar su historia para que avancemos hacia los misterios y las decisiones sin las trabas que antes hacían la lectura algo molesta. Cada uno de ellos ha encontrado su personalidad y el lugar que ocupa en la novela. Avanzamos hacia algo.

A pesar de su volumen, se lee relativamente rápido, especialmente después de pasada la introducción donde agarra ritmo y llega el clímax donde consumimos más rápido las palabr
El día que decida terminar de leer todos los libros sin interrupción voy a tener que encerrarme por meses en mi habitación a leer porque no puede ser que divaguen tanto en detalles. Por más que les resulte increíble, queridos autores, al lector no le interesa la forma de las cavernas en las que está encarcelado un flaco bajo tierra por los líderes de una sociedad subterránea y oculta. NOS CHUPA UN HUEVO. Cada libro podría tener tranquilamente 200 páginas sacando todos los detalles innecesarios y ...more
I loved Roderick Gordon's "Freefall" because it was an amazing book for me to read and i'm still working on the "Tunnels" series. pg 1 "Chester woke up with a slight meow as he saw Will's cat Bartleby on the ground. The cat began to lick his face with great excitement. Chester tried to get the cat off him because the cats tongue felt like sandpaper and it was starting to hurt." Chester and Will were previously blasted into the Pore after the styx gave his brother Cal a brutal death. Will and Che ...more

This series is really good. It is very exciting and funny, and there is something really neat about the whole 'underground' concept. Read these books!

I do not say it often: this book makes me want to go there.

The plot becomes wilder. The characters become deeper yet (both physically and emotionally). The stakes become higher as they fall lower. There are more plot twists than there are twists in the maze of tunnels they're in. Oh, and did I mention there's spider monkeys?

But moreover, Dr Burrows' enthusiastic trepidation inspires and intrigues. If I really was there, I'd be him. I sometimes find myself forgetting about the plot altogether and
dagnabbit! Now I have to wait for the next book to finish the story! How many books of this series are there going to be?

...and so, the third book closes in this epic saga. So, people underground, going deeper, three long books of descent - must be nearly through to Australia by now, all plot twists neatly wrapped up, etc...? Yah. Not even close.

Every time one plot spiral plummets to its doom, another one falls off a cliff and keeps you hanging on waiting to hear the thud from down below.

I can't say I'm not disappointed after reading this book. Although it still has similar premises as the 1st and 2nd book. However, I don't like where the story is heading.

The good thing I found in this book is, the characters are more evolve and the relationships are clearer and more develop especially between Will and other characters. Will becomes more adult, tough and heroic. There is now a sense of purpose in the 3rd book.

My disappointment is there really isn't anything new. I think The Pore
Book review number one-

This story follows Will Burrows (a.k.a. Seth Jerome) through his journey inside the pore, a subterranean void with lower gravity. It starts out wit Will's landing inside the pore. As it continues he gets trapped in a net trap, captures on of the Rebeccas, finds a submarine and a route topsoil. During his trip topsoil, with his father, Will contacts his mom and drags her into the mess with the styx. Also, while he was topsoil Will meets up with Drake and comes to find out
Review in potuguese by blog MON PETIT POISON

A premissa da história é bacana, mesmo que em alguns momentos eu fique me perguntando o quanto de mentira estou lendo ali. Talvez viver abaixo da crosta terrestre seja impossível, talvez com alguma espécie de ajuda seja possível, desde que as coisas contadas na história façam algum sentido, eu sempre acredito (ou tento acreditar), mas nesse livro, os autores viajaram um pouquinho demais da conta e teve alguns momentos que eu me foquei mais em entender

I have just finished reading the third book to the Tunnels series, Freefall. This book was just as long as tunnels but it didn't need to spend so much time on character, since they kept the same characters from Tunnels. In Freefall Will Burrows must stop an evil organization known as the stix from using their substance that could wipe out the entire population. Freefall gets its name from when Will and his friend Chester fall into a deep hole in the Earth that seems endless. They fall into a sp ...more

makin ke dalam bumi aja.. belum masuk beneran sih, masih di pinggiran tebing (?)

dimana mereka bertemu Martha, yang digambarin sudah menghuni daerah itu bertahun-tahun, sampe punya 'rumah' dan kebun.. heeee

Rebeccas juga muncul, tetep dengan niat licik dan ancaman virusnya

FREEFALL by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams is about two best friends who get stuck miles underground. Oh, and did I mention that they also have a race of merciless super humans intent on killing them? Or that they have to save the world from one of their sisters? Well they do, they have all of that and more. It is a fantasy book that takes place in present time but maybe even up to 1,000’s of miles underground.
Will and Chester are stuck with one of their mutual friends, Elliot, in the pore (
El modo de escribir de Gordon y Williams sigue siendo el mismo, algunas escenas son aburridas mientras otras desbordan adrenalina, el punto medio entre ambos genera una gran historia. Peeero, hay ciertas cosas que hicieron que el libro se convirtiera en el que menos me gusta de la serie.

Tuve que abandonarlo durante algunas semanas para lograr terminarlo, y eso no dice nada bueno de un libro. Ahora que releo para hacer la reseña me doy cuenta de que fueron algunas escenas, que me parecieron, sob

I liked this book especially because of the action and adventure aspect to it, as well as the new and unusual plotline that sets it apart from typical novels out there. The third book in a series, this book tells about the adventures of Chester and Will, the two main characters, as they plunge deeper into the interior of the Earth while in free-fall down a large abyss. The story presents exciting characters and is always very suspenseful, as you rarely know what is going to happen next or how th ...more

In Deeper, you have chapter one, which is a mini prologue for a character's relative, and then you jump into the action on the first sentence in chapter two. In Freefall, you jump in the action as hard as Will, Chester and Elliott jumped down The Pore: right away.
The action in this book is ridiculously awesome, and I feel that every time a new book is born in this franchise it exceeds the previous incredibly. The last time I remember feeling this excited about a book series was when Harry Potter
