Review The Descent

The Descent Summary ✓ 2 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. I m not sure what the etiuette is for dropping f bombs in a review so I m just going to phrase it as gently as I know how fuck this book1 Holy racism Batman Enough of the Italian stallions the ever unsympathetic mind gangster stereotypes the brutish non white others and oh my God that second chapter what was that even Oh those poor uncivilized Africans and their violent superstitions and their helpless childish minds and cultures but at least they have given the nice white USAmerican nun a greater understanding of her own life I also very much enjoyed this bit from the third chapter in which USA army major Elias Branch contemplates the war and genocide in Bosnia Branch did not want to save them for they were savage and did not want to be saved By enjoyed I mean I wanted to rip the book in half2 Science does not work that way3 The narrative structure and the pacing of this book are euivalent disasters4 I seriously cannot break down all the ways in which I hate this book It is a disaster It is a mess It is racist It scrabbles toward and mimics meaning but ultimately contains none Stuffed with interesting concepts and engaging suggestions it fails to adeuately develop or explore any of them leaving behind a superficial and pocked whole5 Seriously fuck this book

The Descent Summary ✓ 2 Species and a deity called Older than Old In Bosnia something has been feeding upon the dead in a mass grave So begins mankind’s most shocking realization that the underworld. I am just going to come out and say it I loved this book And yet I fully understand why others didn t Let me explainFor the entirety of their existence humans have not been alone Unbeknownst to the surface world an unfathomable subterranean domain lies beneath their feet and it is not uninhabited The Descent is exactly what it says on the tin a story in which humanity descends to the bowels of the earth and battles for its very survival with the horrifying creatures which reside there And yet it is so much than this Jeff Long explores unsettling notions with this multi layered novel which are likely to play on your subconscious long after you finish it How much influence have these beings had in the evolution and development of the human species And how closely are they related to us These are but a few of the intriguing concepts raised in The Descent Despite my 5 stars I do want to address the shortcomings of this novel Not only do I recognise that this book has numerous flaws I can easily identify them I think the main issue with The Descent is that it tries to be too many things all rolled into one and each genre is depicted with heavy and overwhelming detail Just when the reader becomes comfortable with the topic of spelunking a comprehensive account of another subject such as religion anatomy the ecosystemthe list is endless assaults them and this continues consistently throughout the story The complexity and vastness of the authors narrative is extremely impressive but also confusing and overpowering and I can see why this was a turn off for many readers And whilst I don t claim to possess an extensive knowledge of the science behind the subterranean world that Long creates even I can see that there is a whole host of discrepancies and scientific inaccuraciesNow that the negativity is well and truly out of the way let s review exactly why I found this book to be such a gem and it isn t just because of my absurd nature to go against the grain From the first page I was hooked and I can t say that about many other books the lure of adventure was immediate and Long does a brilliant job of establishing the scene of his innovative and menacing world And yes before you ask I am a huge fan of Jules Verne s Journey to the Centre of the Earth The adventure aspect of this book was what truly captivated me and I admit that whilst the other themes of the book did interest me they paled in comparison with the immersive exploration of the underground His creation of the substantial world beneath our feet and the terrible creatures which inhabit it is so credible science aside that it gave me genuine chills And for me the convincing details surrounding these fictional events worked immeasurably in the books favour so much so I slept with the light on for the next few days after undertaking this read Following on from this the first chapter of The Descent was without doubt the most epic and terrifying opening chapter in any book I have ever read it could easily thrive as an independent short storyAt the risk of repeating myself I fully recognise the blemishes in this imperfect novel but for me personally they could not detract from the superb sense of adventure I felt whilst reading this In other words I wholeheartedly recommend this book but don t say I didn t warn you
