Summary

Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times best-selling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

Book two left off with Gregor reading the Prophecy of Blood: a prophecy that calls for Gregor and Boots to return to the Underland to help ward off a plague. But this time, Gregor's mother refuses to let Gregor return to the Underland...until the rat Ripred assures the family that Gregor and Boots are needed only for a short meeting, which the crawlers will attend only if their "princess" Boots is present. Gregor's mom finally relents, but on the condition that she go with them so they aren't out of her sight.

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods

Fantastic! Great intro of the mother. The ending leaves a wonderful opening for a continued saga. Hoping that Suzanne Collins keeps the plot alive.

Beautiful and accurate

Suzanne Collins, beautifully filled pages with a story of a boy with realistic experiences. I loved it!! I like how Gregor faced challenges and like some other books he didn't get out of it with ease, but faced loss and hard times. THANK YOU SUZANNE COLLINS!!!!!!!!!!

Great Series

What did you love best about Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

Suzanne Collins really brings the story alive. I love the way she developed the characters in each book. She also introduces new characters in each new book. I am sad when she kills off her characters that she convinced the reader to love.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

The cliff hanger at the end. It made me want to purchase the next book right away.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Only in the series. He has a good range of voices to fit the variety of characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Hamnet and Frill died.

What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

fantastic difference voices for all the characters - big fan.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did find myself laughing out loud a couple of times

Any additional comments?

Another excellent story by Suzanne Collins !

Where does Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

This story and its' characters will always be some of my favorites. It is easy to get lost in the adventures and the atmosphere of the Underland.

What did you like best about this story?

I listened to the first book because I enjoyed Collins other books. Once finished, I couldn't wait to follow the characters to their next adventure.

Which scene was your favorite?

It is hard for me to target just one. I enjoyed the imagery Collins provided of the jungle and the characters' difficulties navigating the dangers. I really enjoyed the interactions between RipRed and Gregor.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I would constantly listen to books if I could. The further I read in the series, the more time I spent listening.

Any additional comments?

I realize this book was written for young adults, but, like the Hunger Games, it has an appeal for all ages.

Great Series

What other book might you compare Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods to and why?

As good as the Harry Potter series.

What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

Paul does a great job with different voices and this whole series would not be nearly so enjoyable without this performance.

Any additional comments?

I don't noramlly like young adult (teenage) novels but this whole series is wonderful.

Entertaining Listen

Any additional comments?

This is a book for kids but was quite enjoyable. The narrator was great, the plot was sometimes intense. The writer did a great job. I am looking forward to more by Ms. Collins.
