summary The Descent free read The Descent · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Jeff Long ¹ 0 free read We are not alone In a cave in the Himalayas a guide discovers a self mutilated body with the warning Satan exists In the Kalahari Desert a nun unearths evidence of a proto human. In the preface to Long s The Descent the author expresses his regret that although his friends gave him a lot of scientific advice the science in the book would probably not please themI should have taken this as a signI can t remember having read a book so deliberately bad The dialogue is embarrassing the science atrocious none of it gathered sadly from actual scientists just random articles and a whole lot of conjecture and handwaving Long had a hundred ideas and shoved EVERY ONE OF THEM into his story without giving any of them enough time to germinateThe horror isn t even scary by the end there s so much randomness and silliness going on that the moments that SHOULD be scary just blend into the backgroundSo why two stars instead of one for this five car pileup of a novel It was at least interesting enough for me to read the entire book While Jules Verne may have pioneered the notion of deep exploration Long takes it five steps further and for all the chaos it s certainly not predictableLastly lepers without lips can t pronounce labials Sorry fella It s common sense

summary The Descent free read The Descent · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Jeff Long ¹ 0 free read Is a vast geological labyrinth populated by another race of beings Some call them devils or demons But they are real They are down there And they are waiting for us to find them . Last month I watched two movies with my wife Sanctum and The Descent which has no relation with this book Sure the casting and dialogues left a lot to be desired but in retrospection it dawned on me that it didn t really matter in the end as the real Hero antagonist of these movies was The Darkness itself The Claustrophobic Depths The Subterranean HellAfter watching those movies my wife told me that she would never go on a cave exploration adventure even if it was in reality a tourist spot with all the safety features and she would never let me go anyplace like that either I agreed wholeheartedly and promised that the only type of caves that I would ever go exploring would be like Ajanta and Ellora where you know I wouldn t be than a minute away from the open skies and sunlight 30 seconds at the most if I ran uick enough I wouldn t go in a vertical cave never Thank you very much And I will bet you a trillion Zimbabwean Dollars that you wouldn t go either No I am not claustrophobic At least I am not when I am above the surface of the earth And no I am not unadventurous either You want me to climb Mt Everest with you I am ready Let s go tomorrow Maybe I will lose my toes at 2000 metres and my nose at 2001 metres and maybe I will die at 2010 metres But at least I will die in the open Above surface In the sunlight And if it is overcast as in England I can at least die looking at the grey clouds Not the bloody darkness Real Fact Ever wondered why the British don t worship the Sun It is because it is a relatively new discovery for them They saw it the first time when the East India Company came to India Only after 1947 when the sun began to shine for 10 minutes once in a week in the UK they leftOkay then Now about this book It really lives up to its name I have to give it that much The Descent The first chapter is excellent But then the uality keeps descending unflaggingly right till the end But my extreme fear of all things subterranean kept me going Jeff Long s writing style is choppy at the best So much so that I had to read certain sentences twice just to comprehend what the hell was happening and who was talking to whom The book started off as science fiction much to my delight but by the middle it drifted off towards science fantasy and by the end it became pure fantasy It clearly didn t know where it wanted to go But who am I to blame it Because in the deep one can t possibly see Anywho I had high hopes And while it didn t totally disappoint it didn t impress tremendously either So an in between 3 stars

This was in a random pile of books that a friend gave me to borrow of her husband s I read the synopsis back matter and thought well well well Pretty soon I was immersed in this book with chills on my arms sometimes It was very interesting Then years later after I returned the bookof course it was still in my mind I saw it on sale in e book form and snatched it up It s creepy in a psychological kind of way and also in that way that inches up your spine slowly I m definitely going to read it again someday It really makes you wonder What is in the deep and the dark What kind of things live in absence of light We already know of some pretty phantastical things as it isI have heard and seen that there is a seuel Hmmmmm
