I am just finishing up a sci-fi adventure/thriller by Jeff Long call The Descent. A race of subterranean hominids has been discovered that bears a striking resemblance to the demons and devils of human mythology. The world beneath the planet's surface is explored and more is learned about the hadal race, as they are called. Shit hits the fan, there is lots of violence and suspense, but ultimately this book was not very good.

The only memorable part was a stretch of about 10 pages when the author zoomed through the process of humankind first realizing that they had neighbors underground and beginning to explore and drive the hadals back. I was kind of bored until then, but intrigued by the idea. After those pages I was excited for the rest, but the follow through was not very well done. There were many plot threads that were developed decently on their own but tied together too quickly and haphazardly in the final chapters.

There's a sequel called Deeper, but I doubt I'll ever get around to reading it.



Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

Has anyone read Lev Grossman's The Magicians? Supposed to be "Harry Potter for adults" with sex, drinking, drug use, etc. I've heard good things and I'm thinking about reading it next.
