Product description

From the Back Cover

San Francisco ChronicleWall Street JournalLos Angeles TimesChicago Review of BooksScienceAtlanticEconomist --This text refers to the paperback edition.


a brilliant, thrilling, terrifying work of literature, making me want to think more adventurously and live more deeply., Amy Liptrot

All Macfarlane's books are urgings to take a closer look at the environment we live in, and at the natural world especially. They are perception-shifters. And with its darker, delving subject matter counter-weighing its lyricism, Underland is a magnificent feat of writing, travelling and thinking that feels genuinely frontier-pushing, unsettling and exploratory, Evening Standard

Robert Macfarlane is a magician with words. In Underland he shows us how to see in the dark. His writing is like a vortex... Once caught, you're pulled deeper and deeper with each page -- Andrea Wulf, best-selling author of 'The Invention of Nature'

Devastating, lyrical, blazingly vivid... An examination of the darknesses invisible beneath our feet. The book's great power comes from Macfarlane's deliberate turn away from despair and toward a deliberate, loving, and luminous sense of awe -- Lauren Groff

Robert Macfarlane's writing reminds us of the astonishing variety of things you can see when you go at walking speed, and of how strange and rich the world is -- Philip Pullman

The great nature writer, and nature poet, of this generation, Wall Street Journal

Exquisite. [Robert Macfarlane] evokes so vividly places to which I and probably you will never go, and at the eeriness of the places themselves and the sense of vast scale they restore to us at a time when it can feel like the world has shrunken around us -- Rebecca Solnit

An epic descent into a series of underground and underwater landscapes, Financial Times

Beautifully written and wise, this haunting book is a treasure... It reads like a seamless dive, crawl, and trek through deep time, in sense-rich landscapes, accompanied by fascinating views of the human saga. Its unique spell is irresistible -- Diane Ackerman

Beautifully and bravely balanced... This is a radical book in every sense. It goes as deep as it can, unafraid of the risk that what it finds will turn everything on its head, The Oldie --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a blessing this book is.
By Ashwini A. on 9 June 2019
I think Underland is not the sort of book I would generally pick up and it’s a pity that I wouldn’t. This book is both magical and haunting at once, the claustrophobia you can feel is as real as if you were trapped in a cave all alone. I don’t think I have ever read something like this and sure it might not have felt as the best start (because the writing does take a bit to get used to) but trust me when I say that this is something everyone should be reading.

I am a dreamer of long travels across the globe and I wish I was half as well-travelled as the author because the sort of feelings this book brought out in me can only be explained as a sort of envy mixed in with relief. I doubt I would ever brave the underground as he fearlessly seems to do, this is something I wish I could experience but also I am glad that I haven’t, if that makes any sense at all. (I doubt it really does.)

The writing is exquisite and just so damn engaging. I had a rough week while I was reading this, didn’t get enough time to read it at a long stretch but trust me when I say that I savoured each and every minute I got to read more of this. The way he talks about certain places holding memories made me think of where I live and what sort of things the earth has seen in its long life. I am not really the sort to think of things like that so when I did, I had a few uncomfortable feelings. Of the good kind, I suppose.

This book doesn’t just talk about the sort of mark humans are leaving behind but it also makes us question what are we leaving behind individually? I rarely think of something like that so when this book made me think of that, I was glad. The writing is sublime, the topics pretty hard and a bit scary and sad but at the end, you are left with this wonder and hope that’s hard to explain.

I am so grateful that NetGalley and Penguin Books UK granted me approve to read this ahead of its publication, unfortunately due to real life, this got pushed forward.
