Description

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.

Gregor is summoned back to the Underland by the terms of a second prophecy. Spies have reported the sighting of a Rat King, a character who has been legendary since the Middle Ages. Recognizable by its tremendous size and snow-white coat, the Rat King is destined to bring a World War to the Underland. Gregor eventually comes face to face with the Rat King, and to his surprise, he finds he is unable to kill this creature. His heart tells him he's making the right decision. Will it be a decision he lives to regret?

Giant Cockroaches, Bats and Rats, Oh My!

What did you love best about Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane?

As the second book in this series the reader doesn't get bogged down with info from the first book but enough to follow the story. I love the fantasy land of the Underworld and Gregor's relationship with those who live there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gregor was my favorite character because he would be brave but also remind you that he is still just a young teenager.

Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

Gregor, but I loved how he performed Boots.

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

Yes, I couldn't stop listening to it. I had it on while cooking, cleaning and in bed!

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to hear the next book in the series.

Not the hunger games, but great book!

Good book, lighter and more relaxed than the hunger game. Still a home run for Suzanne Collins. Not quite what I expected but good none the less. I believe it was written for a younger audience, but still a great book for young and old alike! I manages to make you think as all Suzanne Collins books do. Try it you'll like it!

Very unexpected

Would you listen to Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane again? Why?

I would certainly listen to Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane again. I have to say that the first book didn't make me eager to know what would happen to Boots and Gregor, but since it was a Suzanne Collins book, I thought I might, and I don't regret it. This book is fool of twists, turns, and suspense. Now, this one made me eager to dive into the next one, and it made me cry at least 3 times.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane?

Spoiler alert: When all hope had been lost about Boots, despair took place. But the princess got brought back to the warrior.

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

I just loved his narration of Boots. So intense and real - just how little toddlers can be.

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

Yes, but I cried more than I laughed.

Fantastic Book and Series

What made the experience of listening to Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane the most enjoyable?

I have enjoyed both the first and second Gregor the Overlander book with my 8.5 y/o daughter. The story is something both adults and children will enjoy. The story is captivating and moves quickly and leaves you curious for the next chapter and then book. Paul Boehmer does a fantastic job narrating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane?

Well if I told you it would ruin the book for you.....

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

Awesome job ++++++

One of my very favorites!

This series is one of the few I can enjoy over and over again! Both the story and the narration are enough to keep me going back to the Underland!

Very interesting and never boring!

I loved the story. The narrator did very good work the different voices for the different characters, like the roaches and bats. This book does have disturbing moments, but it has action in every moment and never gets boring.

Even better than the first book.

If you could sum up Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane in three words, what would they be?

Unique Fantasy Underworld

What did you like best about this story?

The story takes off with action almost right from the beginning. You learn more about Underworld and the inhabitants. The story takes interesting and surprising twists.

What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

Paul really grows on you. He is more enjoyable to listen to the more I listen and come to expect some of his inflections.

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

I don't listen for long sessions but you could easily listen in one session.

Any additional comments?

So far I like this series even better than the hunger games. Glad I tried it.

Jokes are missing

This part as well as the first one is quiet dark. It is interesting and exciting but it really would improve if it would have had some comical moments or a funny characters.
