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?

    This is debate material. I wonder why it hasn't been moved yet. Is Google what's making the human race stupid? No, we're doing that to ourselves. (i'm generalizing, i know not everyone is stupid)  You can find some pretty cool things on the internet. I've spent the past two or three days learning a lot about cats and chickens (for science! seriously, it's for an assignment) from some very informed websites. As many credible things you can find on Google, there are also some unreliable sources. With these sources come gullible people. Along with boatloads of phony information, when people look up things on Google for things such as research projects, they may just copy down something word-for-word and turn it in to their teacher. Some may not even actually read it. This isn't entirely efficient for learning things. Google isn't "making us stupid" per se, but I do think it shouldn't be someone's only source of information for things (says me who uses the internet for basically everything i know i'm so hypocritical), as not everything may be accurate, though books can be the same way with certain topics.

    I feel they should not be made fun of for their age ever.   I do feel however they can be told no due to their age. Like no you can not enter the PG-13 rated movie because you are 10.    I think age shouldnt be a factor that judges a person rather a category.
