There's A Book
1 May 2006 | by bim_ng03See all my reviews

You people DO know that there is a book of "Under the Mountain" by Maurice Gee, right? I mean, you'd be surprised how many people have seen a film and said, "Wow, that was amazing but I couldn't make head nor tails of it," when there's a written version waiting in the nearest library! I didn't even know that there was a filmed version until today!

Summary of Under the Mountain Theo and Rachael are redheaded twins from New Zealand. They learn at an early age that they are different as they can each find objects the other has hidden by reading the thoughts of their companion. Their powers are discovered by Jones, a member of a wise alien race who is searching for just such a pair of twins to use as a powerful weapon that will kill off the wilberforces, another alien race imprisoned on earth whose single goal is to destroy and conquer planets. Unfortunately the wilberforces have also discovered the true nature of the twins and are out to find them. Rachael and Theo must learn to use the weapon and overcome the pain it causes them before the Wilberforces wake up properly and destroy the planet
