Deeper Book Review

Deeper Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 30, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Deeper takes Will and his pals further into the earth where they search for Will’s father. Kidzworld reviews the Deeper, the sequel to Tunnels, by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams.

Deeper Rating: 5


Author: Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams

In Tunnels, Will’s father went missing in an unknown underground world. On their rescue search, Will and his friend Chester were captured by the evil Styx who use fear and threats of banishment to rule the underground. In this world, Will discovered a secret that changed his life—he was born below ground. His biological mother escaped and brought him “topsoil” when he was a toddler. Since then he has lived with an adoptive family who, despite their differences, he always believed was his own. Worst of all, his so-called little sister has been working as a spy for the Styx her entire life.


Search and Rescue

Deeper picks up where Tunnels left off, with Will and his biological brother Cal following Chester, who was recently banished, deeper into the earth. But rescuing Chester isn’t his only objective. Will knows that his archeologist father has willingly traveled deeper, and Will is desperate to find him.


World of Coprolites

On their journey, the trio discovers yet another cavernous world inhabited by the mysterious Coprolite people. But with one wrong step, this new world could be potentially more dangerous than the tunnels ruled by the Styx…and unfortunately, not all will survive.


The Bottom Line

While Tunnels was a good read, it dragged in parts. Deeper, on the other hand, jumped right into the action and never stopped. Each chapter alternated perspectives between Will, Mrs. Burrows (Sam’s adoptive mother), and Sarah (Sam’s biological mother). Switching perspectives was a great way to keep the story fresh and keep readers on their toes. Because it’s a series, you should definitely read Tunnels first just to understand the lingo and events leading up to Deeper.

    Would You Like to Live Underground?

    • Yeah, it'd be cool to live down there.
    • Only when I feel like hiding from the world.
    • No, I like to see the sky and smell the fresh air.
    • No way - are you nuts?

You can go fly a kite!I do not support gays.If some girls want to walk on the street with literally no clothes on, is that fine too?Thats their way of expressing themselves!But then, they are lost anyway, so who cares?It doesnt matter if you are gay or not, if you are not a Christian! THE BIBLE:Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the ######## immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.SO FLY A KITE if you think you can be a gay christian. Hmm.....I can't deny what you said....But what I can say is that you shouldn't be that religious! Gays have rights too! They're humans too!

SO quit your lifestyle and get saved, gays! P.S:Do not bring up the fact that the old testament says u cant have tattoos. It also talks about animal sacrifices. And no christian does that.
