I know Hunger games was such a huge hit and they are now making movies from it. But could you rethink gregor the overlander? I love the stories maybe add to them? I love them and have reread every one of the books more then 3 times my favorite one if the last one. Maybe had another series....Boots the overlander...maybe she goes back? maybe she actually does remember temp and the underland........If you don't make a series..maybe a movie of them? ( I bet the will get more hits then hunger games)

A huge fan

I feel the same way as Luxa above. I NEED MORE OF THEM

Submitted by Ares (not verified) on

I know writing books takes lots of time but I would love it if you could write more of them. The gregor the overlander series is the best series I have ever read but I think it would be even better with more books in it. I like the idea of Boots the overlander that luxa mentioned above so that is defiantly something to consider. If you do get around to doing that, please make references to the old characters. That would be even greater. Overall, I think that you are a great author and that you should add on to the gregor the overlander series!

My name is Ares too! But anyway, I totally agree, except Ares died! He was totally the best character!

I just fineshed the books and I can't stand that there is nothing else wether there is going to be more books or another movie (one or other or both I don't care) I just want more

ME TOO

Submitted by Ben Tefera (not verified) on

Understanding Luxa's feelings, I too agree that the Underland chronicles was one of the greatest works ever penned, coming purely from a teenage boy who loves fantasy and pays homage to entities that God-fathered my creativity. That being said tho, the Underland chronicles wouldn't translate well to the big screen. Unless you had the capabilities to make Ripred, Ares, and the rest of the creatures from the Underland live up to their portrayal in the books. But yeah I wish I could get in touch with Suzanne Collins so I could personally thank her and tell her about my experiences. Thank you!

I'm laying in bed right now sobbing. This is my second time reading Gregor the Overlander and every time it gets me. I always have to cry because it's to hard for me to comprehend Gregor never ever being able to see Luxa again. I need you to write a sequel!!! PLEASE LET GREGOR AND LUXA BE TOGETHER FOREVER!!!!! I'm begging you!!

Submitted by Shane King (not verified) on

I do agree with you Ava. Gregor and Luxa should be together forever to the end but, I want Suzanne Collins making more books about Gregor and the Underland Chronicles. You see i got a idea of making a book 6. It will start from the ending of book 5 and Gregor will ask his mom and dad can he stay in the the Underland. I wanted them to say yes so he and Luxa can be together. So, after he comes back to the Underland he should be going on adventures with Luxa. Suzanne Collins please read this and make a new books about Gregor the Overland please. I just dont want this series to end. It makes me think about life when it ends. PLEASE make more books.

Suzanne Collins, i went on the internet and typed in "Gregor the Overlander" and i saw book 6. Is it true that you are making a new book? Well if you are respond back. Sincerely, Shane

It makes me sad that there are no more books. Can you please make another book answer all the questions code of claw didn't answer. Please I beg you I dont even like books until I read the Gregor series. I need to know what happens between Gregor and Luxa.

Submitted by abyyss (not verified) on

I feel the exact same way! Pleeeeeeeeeeassssse make more books and let Gregor stay in the Underland with Luxa so they can be happy!

Submitted by Ripred (not verified) on

I agree with Ava, I am literally sitting here wondering what to do with my life now that there are no more books to read. I need Gregor and Luxa to see each other again! I love the idea of Boots the Underlander. PLEASE!!

Submitted by Brock Nippard (not verified) on

I need a book 6 please I’ve been waiting 3 years for another book but none has came out please I’m begging you let Gregor Luxa be together

Submitted by Oskar (not verified) on

NEED AT LEAST ONE MORE BOOK! it fits perfectly cuz they saaid the ants where on the border so now she will have some thing to write about :-)

Submitted by Huge fan (not verified) on

I loved every Gregor the overlander book in the series and I have read each book 4 times. I cried so hard when I finished reading the last book and how Gregor would never see luxa or the underland again.i really think you should write a 6 th book or even a movie.a movie would probably be a huge hit.plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I love the books ssooooo muchhhh

Submitted by Jean gautier (not verified) on

Can you make a movie for gregor the overlander

Submitted by Ares (not verified) on

If Suzanne Collins decides to add another book to the Gregor series, it would not be to hard. There is already a basis for a sixth book. It could be based around Gregor and his family coming down again (obviously), and as previously said by another fan, defend themselves from the cutters. Please, Please, Please!!! Write another book to finish off the series!!!

Submitted by Julian (not verified) on

I feel the same way. I am dying to read another book like this and I have read the series 12 times! please write another book to add to the underland chronicles. Please Please Please PLEASE. It would be a great book and I a willing to bet on that.

Submitted by Ares (not verified) on

I agree with Luxa completely and I hope you like her ideas as much as I do. Please write more books

Submitted by Mareth (not verified) on

Please write more books in the gregor the overlander series. It would be a great book no matter how it goes. I like the idea of Boots going back to the underland and I also like the idea that gregor goes into the underland again and he fights the cutters. I love the books so much that me and my friends make quizzes for each other about your books. Your books are the only books I read. They are amazing. Please make more! Please Please PLEASE make more!

I love the hunger games series!! They are definitely My favorite books! You are amazing. I would absolutely love it if you would Please please please rewrite the series in Peeta's perspective!!! Everyone loves Peeta and I'm sure a lot of people agree with me that they don't want their reading pleasure to be over just yet...

Submitted by Morgan (not verified) on

I wish I could talk to Suzanne Collins and convince her to write them from Peeta's perspective. I've reread all of them 7 times and I need more. Or maybe if you don't do it from Peeta's perspective you could do something about Panems history or more about in between the very end Mockingjay and the Epilogue

Submitted by catrina (not verified) on

I would love to know peetas perspective. There are so many questions I have that need answers. I wish I could have a hour to sit with Suzanne Collins just to ask questions. I have so many times went back and said well who did it? What happened? What about the kids? How did things change in Panel in between? Omgoodness the list goes on!!!

Submitted by Amy (not verified) on

She can wright a book revisiting the history of panem and where the meaning of mockingjay comes from or even feature the first mocking jay that unsucsesfully led the rebelion of 13 and also show how the capitol came to making the hunger games . The other thing she can do is wright a book on the 73 hunger games that we have not read of she can maybe find a book amongst the ruiens or be given the book because she is the mockingjay or get it in her nightmares and start looking for answers thats when peeta comes with the idea of visiting the old arenas that the capitol kept . Then there is the promise of another book that she started by coin and the remaining victors voting for another hungergames but with the capitols children . Another book posibilaty for her is to tell us how the capitol became so powerful . And what happens to katniss children and gale . please since i want more books and im sure you do to . I apologise for spelling erors my english is not so good yet . A despirate bookworm Amy

Submitted by Anna (not verified) on

I so much agree with a hunger for more Hunger Games books. It would be nice to read more books what is telling the story of how Panem happened. What happened on the Dark Night 76 years ago. What happened in District 13, also what happened with Peeta, Katniss, Gale and Johanna after Snow was defeated in more detail. It could be like Star Wars. The middle was written and after that the beginning and the end :) I started to read Hunger Games again for the 10th time maybe, while I never do repetitions since there is so much to read, see, etc. So, please? :)

Submitted by Huge Fan (not verified) on

I totally agree I want a book series on Haymitch and him in the Hunger games and how he survived and how district 13 rebelled and how the capital became powerful and how they made the hunger games to the first hunger games but I need more movies and books of the Hunger games Please!!! But I know it takes a lot of time to make a book but if you could please make another one.

Submitted by Hunger games lover (not verified) on

I too agree with Stephanie but try changing the end by keeping primrose everdeen alive and have a happy ending

From a true fan who loves your writing and got to engrossed and at a point imagined himself as Katness and felt her pain when primrose was killed.

And try continuing the hunger games series please they are awesome

Submitted by A Fan (not verified) on

How could you continue series from a happy ending? It's not possible or it is but it wouldn't be as great cause what would you write about? How Katniss and Peeta got more kids? You just cant continue the hunger games trilogy. But they were and are amazing books!!

Submitted by A Fan (not verified) on

well you can start by writing the books from either Peeta's or Gale's point of you though I personally prefer Peeta. It would be a good way.

Submitted by Krissy Yssirk (not verified) on

I can't even begin to describe how much I love the Hunger Games series. I read quite a lot and have never been affected by a story this much.
The way I see it, the series was written as a lesson about history, war and humanity. It has made its point and it couldn't be more perfect. You can't improve this, it would just betray the point of the books.

I am a tween and I loved your books . hunger games more then any other . I wish you would make a book similar to the hunger games . you books inspiration me to try and wright some books of my own . you have talent . you are amzing . I love to be a writer like you .

Submitted by Sarah.D (not verified) on

Yes! I totally agree! I even cried when she "blow up"! I have a younger sister and I felt the pain! (She didn't die) But I agree with your opinion. Prim should have been kept alive! At least that the book has a happy ending. And yes, Suzanne you should make more books! Maybe from other peoples perspective. THANK YOU FOR WRITING SUCH AN AMAZING SERIES!

Submitted by Pelil (not verified) on

AGREE!!! And sometimes i was thinking if there's no other way for Suzanne to rewrite the series in Peeta's maybe us(the fans) could make a "fanmade" series from Peeta's point of view.. Who knows we can meet Suzanne and helps us to do something about it
I really hope that can happen. Will be a lot of fun to meet, or talk about the stuffs we love together with the other fans.

I need more of the Gregor the overlander series make more books or make movies!!!!!!!!

Submitted by Kaitlyn (not verified) on

I just finished the series of The Hunger Games! When I read the epilouge to Mockingjay and I thought you should write a series on Katniss and Peeta's kids! I would be so happy if you did! Thanks!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

I know that everyone is asking this, but I really want you to make another one from the Katniss's daughters perspective. You could make it to where Snows granddaughter took over Panem and is forcing the rebels children to go back into the Hunger Games, but the rebels with more important roles or had more impact on the Capitol during the Rebellion have their names entered more times. Ultimately leading up to the daughter going back in at the age of...13? The boy wouldn't be old enough, but then Katniss and Peeta would have to be the mentors. Please, I'm begging you make another one.

Submitted by queenb (not verified) on

I agree I love the series and movies but I want more about peeta, katness, and there kids. plese write more books.

Submitted by April Smith (not verified) on

I was wondering.... Did the story of Joe Hill (songwriter/migrant worker/activist) inspire you to write - The Hanging Tree? I definately see a parallel in his hanging and the lyrics to the song in your book. I was just curious. Thank you for any time you might give me.

Submitted by Joy (not verified) on

Dear Suzanne,
I have read all of the hunger games books and it has become a bit of an obsession, it would mean so much if you could write 3 shorter novels explaining everything but in Gale's point of view, & another 3 of Peeta's thoughts. If you could do that i would love them! :) I've always been wondering what went through Gale's mind when Peeta kissed Katniss, and what went through Peeta's when it was Catching Fire especially. Many people i know and seen really want these to happen.
Thank you for your time,
Joy

Suzanne, i think you might want to consider making a 6th book in the Underland Chronicles. You did a great job crafting the sieres and the charecters, and you ended it with us wanting more. I and alot of your fans would agree, that a 6th book would be awsome.

Sincierly, Your Fan
Jack

i was wondering you should make a another hunger games because this book blow my mind. it was amazing even tho the ending is so sad on the mocking jay but your books are so amazing and you should make another one. the book just wants you to read more and i am begging you just make a another book.

Submitted by Kenzie Bucher (not verified) on

All of my friends dislike me for continuing to like Gale. I would like to know if the hunger games series is a metaphor for our economy? And if you still meant for Gale to be a loved character? I know he messed up, but people should have second chances! Though he did kill her sister and didn't apologize, but who could apologize about killing someone's sister? Who could apologize for something like that in a situation so dire? I really want to hear these answers! Thank you, your work is very well put together, -Kenzie
