One night when Liza went to bed, Patrick was her chubby, stubby, candy-grubbing and pancake-loving younger brother, who irritated and amused her both, and the next morning, when she woke up, he was not. In fact, he was quite, quite different. When Liza's brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul. She knows, too, that she is the only one who can save him. To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers' nests, where she encounters the evil queen and must pass a series of deadly tests—or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever. From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver comes a bewitching story about the reaches of loyalty, the meaning of love, and the enduring power of hope.

3.0 Book 17/100: The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver
Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge Item: A Middle-grade BookI think this book would have made a very good Jim Henson movie. Its strongest point is the strange, surreal, and dream-like world Oliver creates in the "below," where rats wear lipstick, keepers of dreams fly around, and "Spindlers" feast on...

3.0 Didn't transport me
This is a middle-grade book that feels like a middle-grade book. That is neither a good thing nor a bad thing. It did mean I had to keep the target age in mind as I was reading it, because it never really engaged my adult-side brain. But as a children's fairy tale, it's sweet and simple and occasion...

Finally had a chance to read the book. And I can tell you, it is absolutely beautiful, stunning and wonderful.Though the only minus point would be Liza and her attitude at times. She is a sweet girl, but sadly she kept fuzzing over Mirabella, how she was a rat and ugly and such. I found it sad that ...

2.5 The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver
So I usually don't follow-through with the Goodreads rating system (my 2 star ratings regularly means I didn't enjoy it), but just this once I'm going to go along with the GR rating system and say The Spindlers was OK, nothing special. I felt Lauren Oliver tried a bit too hard with creating a fantas...
