I'm hearing that 'Tunnels' by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams was a great book, that it was international best-seller. My brother gets me the book and I read it. It takes me over a month to read it. The reason why it took me this long to read one book was simply because it bored me to tears and I had to force myself through most of the book. The beginning was slow and hardly eventful. The end is where things get better. However, I must say that I found the book hard to read. I couldn't believe it was a children's novel, considering it was over four-hundred pages and after the first hundred, things finally pick up. This is just my opinion though. If you've read Tunnels, then tell me why you liked it or disliked it. If a friend read it then you can tell me what they thought of it.
