Tunnels by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams is an international bestseller first published in 2005 in Britain under the name The Highfield Mole. There will be at least two more books in this series. The next one called Deeper will be available in Feb. 2009.
Movie deals are also being made. Relativity Media bought the rights to Tunnels and the film is due to be released in 2010.
I really like this book but the question it seems people are asking is, "Is Will the next Harry Potter?" I thought the book stood very well on its own but...
I would love to hear what you think.
