Violence:A good number of people die and it is a little gory.Describing one of the spiders eating the other after it dies.

What I Thought:It was really exciting!It was funny in parts and Gregor was truly heroic!It might have a tad dark 3/4 of the way through but other than that it was AWESOME!This series Suzanne Collins did before The Hunger Games, which were darker and had a couple bad parts, and is great for younger kids and even teenagers who love fantasy.
Rating and Age: 5 out of 5 stars and 10 and up.
