Might be my favorite book in the series so far. I love the characters. Gregor, Luxa, Boots, Temp, Ripred, and Ares are all great. And I can totally understand why Ripred is Suzanne Collins's favorite character.

Since this series is for a younger audience, it's a bit more lighter and funnier than The Hunger Games. But really, it's not that much different. Sad things happen. There's war and hunger and death. And there's creepy stuff too. (Like with what happened to a bat in the previous book or the

These books are supposed to be aimed at grades 4-6. I am therefore so very glad I have an 11-year old daughter, because otherwise I wouldn't have a good excuse to read this series--except that they're wildly entertaining and read as easily as putting down the tastiest junk food. As it is, we're having a blast tearing through them as part of our summer. She likes me to read first, because I'm a little better at holding back spoilers, but she's right behind me. The only problem: I'm now into book ...more

While I was considering what I would say about this review, I thought, "I'll give it four stars," and I thought of some very good reasons why I deducted that one star. But, shucks, who am I kidding? I don't exactly know where this love of middle grade fiction has come from, but I'm such a sucker for it.

Yes, there are things that I can say weren't as great as previous entries into this series. It seems like we spent less time with the main characters in this one. The entire story zooms right by

I really enjoyed this 3rd installment of the Underland Chronicles. It might even be my favorite in the series so far. I liked the plot and the major twist in the end and I loved how fast-paced the whole thing was. This managed to break my heart a bit which didn't surprise me at all because, you know, Suzanne Collins. Weirdly(?) Ripread has became my favorite character. I see him as Haymitch Abernathy of this series. :D

This series was made to be used as a literary tool for helping kids understand war. I’m just convinced of that. They are amazing, I am so stressed for the characters while reading these, apprehensive of what I see looming in their futures, and that’s a pretty big reaction for books created for twelve year olds. Specifically this book deals with reparations, racism, the effects of long-endured wars and hatreds in shaping culture, the dangers of pacificism, and biological warfare.

I've been on the point of swearing off series because they just seem to drag me on and on without giving me the fulfillment of a journey from exposition through a climax to a conclusion that I expect from a book. It was such a relief to be in the hands of an author who knows what they are doing and can create satisfying story that stands on its own two feet even when it is part of a series.

I'm getting very attached to Gregor and Co. Each character is distinct and memorable--they feel real becau

This is a great installment in this series. I don't think it could stand alone very well, but the moving of the overall plot is fantastic, as is the story within this volume. I loved the new characters, and was sad to lose a few of them, but happy that we will get to continue to read about a few more. The action is consistent and engaging, the characters are relatable and well-developed.

Warning, though: my skin was crawling through a large portion of this book. With all that Suzanne Collins has
This is the least favorite in the series for my daughter, but she still liked it. She thought it was a little confusing, and didn't like the end (view spoiler), and she wished there would've been more explanation where the plague and the cure were concerned.

Ya había pasado bastante tiempo desde que había leído el antecesor a este, empece a extrañar a Gregor así que partí a la biblioteca especialmente en busca de este ejemplar.
Creo que es el que más me ha gustado de lo que va de la saga, sentí que Suzanne cambio su estilo en este libro en comparación a los anteriores, y para mejor.
Me leí más de tres cuartos del libro en una sentada, pero es que no podía parar de leer.

Siento que ha sido el libro que (espero) me esta sacando
A quick recap if you haven't been paying attention up until now: this is the third book in a five-book cycle, the first two books were good (but not great), it's by the author of The Hunger Games, and if you haven't read The Hunger Games, you're making remarkably terrible use of your time on this Earth.

All caught up? Good.

This book is probably my least favorite that Collins has written. That's not to say it's bad, but it's just not as entertaining as her other books have been, for a number of re
Have these Underlanders ever, since Mr. Sandwich took them below, had a non-prophecy day? It seems to me that Gregor is always hopping down the air shaft to go fufill some underground prophecy and no one bats an eye (or eyes a bat, ha ha ha), like prophecy-fulfilling is a daily thing, something everyone knows about and engages in from birth. Like breathing and eating. It makes me think that Sandwich and others scheduled every day from now until the series ends with prophecy-doing.

There's a bit of a formula with the Gregor books.

1. Gregor has a dull home life and the beginning has to remind you of this. His family has real-life problems with money, food, and everything else.
2. For some stupid reason, Gregor finds himself in the Underland again along with his useless 2-year-old sister.
3. Some kind of issue goes down with the humans in the Underland.
4. Gregor, the chosen one, must go on a quest in order to resolve the issue. He battles random creatures and his sister must g

I really am enjoying this series. In fact I think they are getting a bit better each time. I think Collins was really learning how to grip her readers with the first one, and now is picking up speed. Her ability to grip your emotions is becoming stronger. Great storyline this time. Gregor must return to the Underland this time to fulfull the prophecy of blood. A plague has gripped the Underland nations and it will be up to Gregor to help find the cure. Only this time it hits far more close to ho ...more

Enjoyed! A bit slow at the beginning but picked up and got quite interesting. Still surprised by the amount of violence. I wish Solovet had been executed with Neveeve. I do not care for Solovet. And Hazard is without his daddy :C Still waiting for Twitchtip to return and thankful that they found Luxa & Aurora. I am shocked that they left Gregor's mom in the underland and is he gonna tell his neighbor?! Can't wait to find out.

These books are an amazing middle grades, so unique and beautifully written. I love how these books show up how messed the society is. You can transform any of the societies in the underworld to those in our owns, how the "pure" people cannot accept those with different skin color or a different religion.
feels like a "must-read" for country leaders. telling them how they should be, act and think.
Suzanne Collins sounds like an amazing person

Firstly I know that I have never been the target audience for this series but did enjoy the first two books, using them as fluff reads, between books with more substance. However this will be the last book I will read of the series. The writing is too formulated and after the first book nothing new was ever really brought into the story.

I'm completely amazed with how this series just continues to improve with each book. I never think it's possible for me to love the next book in the series as much as the one I just finished but it keeps happening. Collins covers everything and creates the perfect story from beginning to end, often ripping my heart out along the way. Just simply amazing.

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods is comprised of what most refer to the second book syndrome in that the story served more as a stable foot for the developing plotline. Even so, the story sufficed, the characters were unique in their own right, and the overall tone was adventurous to some extent.

What this book offered more of, in retrospect, was a fiery explosion of tension and shock-inducing moments where I found myself asking what the contents of the book are actually trying to conve

This is by far my favorite in the series, you really get to see how HIGH the stakes are. The action builds up there is so so much character development. I love literally everyone (which can only be said about maybe four other series). The writing is fantastic and very easy for little eleven year old me to read for the first time, and now 5 years later to still be able to love this for what it is. Luxa is a badass.

Wow. Things are heating up. I mean, I suppose most of us realize that we don't have much to fear from a possibly life-ending plague when we are only halfway through the series. :p. But book three drives home the point of moral ambiguity much more than the first two.

In the first two books we, along with Gregor, were given lots of reasons why the collective rat society was definitely an enemy camp. But when the rats and humans have to band together to find the plague that both are suffering from,

След три години планове и чакане поредицата най-после беше в ръцете ми и вече четях третата книга.

Заглавието ме беше подвело да си представя едва ли не свръхестествена история. В крайна сметка, вече от години насам е модерно да се пише за пророчества, проклятия, предсказания. Така че – защо не и тук? Наивно си мислех, че ме очаква средно напрегната история с предвидимо благополучен край – поне беш

Tercer libro de la saga de Las Tierras Bajas de Suzanne Collins, con un giro bastante diferente a los anteriores y una historia que desarrolla y expande mucho más el universo que creó la autora.
