*This is my first time trying one of these type of posts so hang with me. And please, please, pretty please tell me how I did in the comments bar. I hope that I do well on this.*
So I know that a book bloggers job is to promote books. But I like to find random books in the bookstore and read and rate those too. That is how I found my nice Gregor the Overlander series. I read it last year but I didn’t have a book blog to share my views. So now I am rereading the series and reviewing it now. This book was much better to read then all the books before it. That made me very happy.
What I loved the most about this book was that it showed that things could change. This series could have been way worse. You see that when you realize that the author could have dragged on the fight scenes for another hundred pages or so like they do in some books. The author has done a brilliant job keeping the fight scenes contained just like she did well with everything else in this book. I was captivated and instead of watching the baseball game that I was at, I was reading this book.
The elements of death and doom for Gregor are there, but they are more like background music then the leading part. I loved how the author put so much skittishness into the book while still keeping the story moving. That was how I got entranced. I loved it so much!!!!!!!!!!!!! I even sort of loved the Bane. Except, not really. Oh, the love for that book!!!!!*sighs in happiness* How can you not love one of the characters in this story??? How can you not cry when one dies????? (Or you think that they died)
I do need to talk about the villain of the story for a moment, the Bane. The Bane!!!! That poor demented rat!!!! He had problems. Mental problems. So in a fit of anger he chopped of his friend’s head. And then he rubbed his eyes a few times and forgot that he had even done it. Oh Bane!!!!!
Everything about Gregor and the Code of Claw was suspenseful. It got your blood pumping and your heart racing as you went around the corner, not sure of what you’ll find. That is one of the main reasons why I enjoy this book. Sometimes the book did go a little slowly but I was able together through that very quickly and I was to interested in the world and characters to care that much.
Another problem that I had with this book is that it is to gory. This book is meant for ten year olds so you do not have to say that there were so many dead that the soldiers were walking on a field of corpses. That is to scary!!! If I was ten I would be having nightmares. That is pretty much my only problem with the book.
Gregor and the Code of Claw is definitely thew best book in the Gregor the Overlander series. I think that this is a book that is going on my favorites shelf. Book rating:
Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!! -annaleeliz and Buttons
