Tunnels by Roderick Gordon

Tunnels (Book 1) by Roderick Gordon

Rating:(My husband and I have an agreement, whoever reads the book first has to write the review. This is his review to write, but because he is so behind, I decided to be nice and write it for him.)

We had a really hard time deciding what rating to give this book. The story and the characters were both extremely well written, and there was always something going on. But for some reason we both had a hard time reading the book. I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to the next books in the series, but I probably couldn't read it again. However, I understand why people love the book, because the story was completely original and fun. It was a great book, but I think it will make an even better movie. With the content rating - the book was kind of scary sometimes and it took the Lord's name in vain a few times.

Will's favorite thing to do is to dig tunnels. When his father goes missing, Will and his friend Chester dig the ultimate tunnel, and discover a whole new world under ground. Will finds out that the family he had known his whole life isn't his real family and his father and brother actually belong to the under ground world. With the evil Styx watching his every move, Will must find a way to rescue Chester and escape from his underground prison.
