Closer (Tunnels #4)
At long last reunited with his dad, Will now spends his days exploring the "land of the second sun," decoding the cryptic glyphs carved into its three mysterious temples--or eyeing the wild animals
This book is an excellent addition to the Tunnels series. It follows on from 'Tunnels' 'Deeper' and 'Freefall'.
'Closer' is as much a page-turner as the other three and it is slightly easier to read and enjoy. This could be partially related to the plot being interchanged between different members in the group, as well as d ...more
My good friend who read these before me said, in answer to my question about whether they were still as good this far in to the series as they were at the start, that they were getting better if anything. Perhaps, yes, perhaps. Certainly no worse, still intense and vaguely infuriating in the way of all slightly bleak situations that aren't going the way one would hope they might.
The series has a terrible, though entertaining, habit of people not dying when th ...more
Another engaging part of this fabulous story is Mrs. B ...more
I love this series.
P.S. If you have red this... poor Chester gets all the badness... badosity? Badovity?
And finally it has.
I read the book in a couple of days, so caught up was I in the ever-developing story of Will and friends.
The previous three novels have been a joy for me, pure ecstasy.
I adore the whole world Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams have spun from their creative imaginations and I am so glad I have had the privilege of seeing the plot bloom and thrive, pulsate with excitement and ...more

"Closer," (the fourth installment in the "Tunnels" series) is probably the best one since the very first book, Tunnels (also the name of the book series). In the series, protagonists Will Burrows and Chester discover an hidden hole outside Will's house, which they explore and eventually leads them to a massive underground city called The Colony. From there, Will and Chester must adapt to the new life there while trying to find a way back home. In ...more

Es cierto que muchas de las acciones de los styx no están encaminadas por el camino del bien pero también es cierto que ellos lo único que quieren lograr es la salvación del planeta que comparten con los seres de la Superficie. Aquellos seres de la Superficie han acabado con el planeta Tierra y no son los único ...more
But, all of me not remembering what this series is about aside, this is a seriously good book. Before reading, I remember thinking that they should just end the series already, but now that I've read this one... there's a lot more stuff to wrap up. Maybe it's because Freefa ...more
Why snow? Because if snow did happen to blow up in your face one day, you'd probably think, "What the--? Snow doesn't do that!! That can't happen!!" And while reading this entire book, you're bound to think the same: "What the--? That can't happen! That did not just happen!" Well, it did. In the form of pure awesomeness.
***I will warn you, there are some spoilers from here on out. If you wish not to be spoiled, th ...more
Closer is also a very strong page turner because every page is filled with suspense built ...more
The title says it all: it's building up. Everything's in the air (four thousand kilometres beneath us, mind you) and it's starting to become clear that nothing really is clear at all. More than half of this thick volume was digested ravenously in one afternoon as I scrabbled for the end…
Oh, and there's the adventure aspect, too. I can really call it scenery, not imagery, because it's so fantastically described (and yet not in a way that takes too long either).
I thought that this book really helped me get more pumped for the other books in the series, which was the exact opposite of Deeper. I think that the most boring book in this series ...more
The plot keeps getting interchangeable between the different characters which in turn, continue to evolve themselves.
They can't get deeper in the world after this one. So right now, the whole world is a possible canvas for the next books.
What shocked me the most was the return of the world's most hated enemy from World War II, the Nazis. Working along side the Styx to take over the world. What also shocked me was that the twins ha ...more
