The latest instalment of The Tunnels Series had a lot to live up to, and I'm glad to report that it certainly has exceeded all expectations!
Just like the previous books Gordon and Williams have blown us out of the water! Freefall contains all the excitement, exhilleration , and above all the mystery the readers have come to expect.
Once again we find Will Burrows in perilous circumstances after a long fall down the "Pore." I would struggle to write a full review of the events that happen in Freefall because so much happens! The reader is on a constant quest of discovery, one moment you're running down dark subterranean passages, the next you're exploring old soviet submarines!
This is really one of the books I get a real sense of escapism from, you really feel as if you're there with Will and ever-bumbling Chester, you feel the adrenaline (and believe me, in this book there is a lot of adrenaline!) the books give you a real rush.
Gordon and Williams are very successful at spinning multiple yarns, telling us not only the story of Will and Chester, but of all the other characters, I particularly loved reading about Will's mother's escapades, Freefall certainly has a lot to offer.
Freefall is an excellent continuation of the story, my only tiny, tiny gripe is that the cover has changed slightly to the previous books on the spine so it looks a bit odd on my bookshelf, but hey, who really cares? All in all Freefall is simply incredible, believe me Tunnels fans, you wont be dissappointed!
