Under the MountainEy are endowed with special powers to oppose mysterious giant creatures that are det The first Maurice Gee book I've read because it was a dollar I like kids books I liked the one short story I read from himplus he's uite famous in NZI found it pretty hard to put down and finished it in two sittings He's got a ton of imagination his descriptions are great and gross his pacing is generally pretty exciting I liked that he didn't make things pretty or easy for example he has an uncle drown and a volcano erupt on some of the people at the end I always admire when authors do unnecessary but fairly natural things like when EB White kills off Charlotte In this book it's not jarring because there's a really intense buildup and you're just glad the twins are alive no spoiler it's a kids book of course they're aliveI think kids who have never been to Auckland will be thrilled with all the talk of volcanoes and whatnot And of course those who've been there will have a lot to recognize
