To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A great series that on paper you might think wouldn’t work. All the animals / insects that people usually fear/ are averse to are shown in a new light ( Think friendly , loving cockroaches and the loyal bats ) this series follows one boy who thinks himself unimportant, living a sometimes difficult life. As the series develops we see the main character grow in confidence, find and fulfil prophecies ,which are life changing , and ends with his finding himself. A reminder that family comes in all shapes and sizes and that we are defined by our choices in life.
Read the Hunger Games series first & bought this to read more by the same author. To my surprise & pleasingly found this series much better, more inventive and really wanted to see where the series sent. Well worth reading the series in order.
I loved the Hunger Games and was interested to see what other books Suzanne Collins had written. Initially I was put off buying this book as it seemed to be aimed at a much younger audience, however I took a chance and am so pleased that I did! This book was excellent! Beautifully written and I adored the characters of Temp and Boots and the wonderful relationship they shared. This book made me laugh but also kept me up at night as I couldn't wait to find out what happened in the next chapter. I will definitely be reading all the books in this series and can not recommend it enough. Great read for all ages.
I stumbled on the Overland Chronicles by pure chance and decided to read it to my 10 year old son each night before bed. He enjoyed it so much that he took up the book and read it within a few days. He was hooked and has enoyed this chronicle just as much. He has never read very much before and it is just oh so refreshing to find such a well written book which has truly captivated my son from the first to the last word. He has now read all the books in this series and wishes there were more. I would really recommend this book for the author has created a fantasy world full of enthralling characters that many children will adore.
A brilliant Series of books - even though they are primarily for young adults/ children, I still found them engaging, with a really solid storyline that kept me reading - I genuinely couldn't put these books down! Thoroughly recommend!
Yet another fabulous book in the Underland Series, my 10 year old son was devastated to finish the series and even wrote to Suzanne Collins to ask her to write more books. We had a hard time finding another series to follow this one. Excellent!!!
