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

Everything would be good if there wasn't Will's father which I found annoying as hell. His ignorance was killing me.

Mungkin karena saya melahap seri ketiga tanpa membaca dua seri sebelumnya, butuh waktu lama untuk memahami jalan cerita. Terutama istilah-istilah seperti Pore, Deeps, Topsoil, Colony, dll. Meski agak lama, pada akhirnya jalan ceritanya bisa diikuti. Akan tetapi, tak seperti ekspektasi ketika membaca cerita petualangan fantasi macam ini, alur ceritanya tergolong lambat dan cenderung datar. Keseruan hanya muncul sesekali. Seperti letupan kecil yang tak berarti. Makhluk-makhluk dan tempat-tempat an ...more

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
This is book 3 of a 6 book set. I have thoroughly enjoyed going on this journey with Will, Chester and the rest of the gang. It is a book with threat of global domination and destruction. One of the aspects of the book that is keeping me reading is all of the main characters are children and or no older than 22. Even the "evil" character is a set of teenage twin girls.

For me this is a familiar story line theme. I am very curious how these 2 authors carry it out. So far the have kept me interest

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 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. Cada libro podría tener tranquilamente 200 páginas sacando todos los detalles innecesarios pero te plantan 700 páginas en las cuale ...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!

This is the book I enjoyed the most so far in the series. The characters' personalities are stronger, the narration and description are clearer, and the plot is getting more intense. (view spoiler)

Sigue atrapando la historia, mucha acción.No le doy 5 estrellas por el hecho de que ya están empezando a poner algunos rellenos para alargar la saga, pero igual muy buen libro.

If you can’t handle action, adventure, and suspense, this is not a book for you. Freefall, the book i'm reviewing, has no weaknesses and much strengths. The plot is good and solid with suspense where you can't stop reading. It also consists of much complex language and terms. This book is 599 pages long but seems to fly by because you can’t put it down. This book is the third in a series of books. The second book, Deeper, ends with Will, the main character, Chester, his friend, Elliot, someone w ...more

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

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
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 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

After reading the book Freefall, I give the book a four out of five stars. I gave it this rating because I like the story build up and how it keeps on surprising with the upcoming events (also builds up through the series). I did not give it a full five stars because it gets quite confusing at times, especially after the sections/chapters you read.

Due to reading the book, I would say that the appropriate audience is for junior high students, or around the grades 5-8, mostly because the vocabul

...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.
