Hailed as "the great nature writer of this generation" (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of books about the intersections of the human and the natural realms. In Underland, he delivers his masterpiece: an epic exploration of the Earth's underworlds as they exist in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself.In this highly anticipated sequel to his international bestseller The Old Ways, Macfarlane takes us on an extraordinary journey into our relationship with darkness, burial, and what lies beneath the surface of both place and mind. Traveling through "deep time"--the dizzying expanses of geologic time that stretch away from the present--he moves from the birth of the universe to a post-human future, from the prehistoric art of Norwegian sea caves to the blue depths of the Greenland ice cap, from Bronze Age funeral chambers to the catacomb labyrinth below Paris, and from the underground fungal networks through which trees communicate to a deep-sunk "hiding place" where nuclear waste will be stored for 100,000 years to come. Woven through Macfarlane's own travels are the unforgettable stories of descents into the underland made across history by explorers, artists, cavers, divers, mourners, dreamers, and murderers, all of whom have been drawn for different reasons to seek what Cormac McCarthy calls "the awful darkness within the world."Global in its geography and written with great lyricism and power, Underland speaks powerfully to our present moment. Taking a deep-time view of our planet, Macfarlane here asks a vital and unsettling question: "Are we being good ancestors to the future Earth?" Underland marks a new turn in Macfarlane's long-term mapping of the relations of landscape and the human heart. From its remarkable opening pages to its deeply moving conclusion, it is a journey into wonder, loss, fear, and hope. At once ancient and urgent, this is a book that will change the way you see the world.… (mais)

My latest listen as I wandered the streets of my hometown, Underland is a collection of essays centered round the theme of what lies hidden beneath our feet. I found it enjoyable. It introduced me to a number of concepts of which I hadn’t already been aware.

An enjoyable listen/read, though I found myself longing for more depth than a collection of pop-science essay can likely provide. ( )

"nonfiction"/lyrical meandering that sometimes has to do with concrete things but not in a meaningful way

If you are looking for a straightforward nonfic book filled with cool stuff that occurs underground, this isn't it. If you are looking for pages and pages of poetic drivel that goes off on tangent after tangent after tangent after tangent, and just want something, go ahead and try this. ( )

The best word I can think of with regard to this book is - purposeful! Not just the message of natural conservation (natural and man-made) involved, but also the choice of places and the style of his narration. Good to see some more personal glimpses again - they also serve that purpose(fulness)!

The underlands are the deep time spaces of our world, and Macfarlane with his lyrical, poetic, high level language is the one best fit to describe them. The underlands are deposits from which we would extract mineral/oil wealth or that which needs to be hidden (secrets, burials.) Whether spelunking, mountaineering, or climbing glaciers, Macfarlane descriptions amaze the reader and leave her in wonder. What was discouraging was to read of the plastic that litters the beaches of Lofoten in Norway, and that the author assigns blame to the oil companies for having provided the raw material for making plastics, instead of pinning the blame on the humans who discard their refuse or make no effort to remove such from the landscape.

‘Underland’ is a lyrical and thought-provoking book that explores nature and space. But the space is not above our head, but under our feet. Macfarlane looks at how nature exists below the earth’s surface and how little we understand and know about it. He moves on from this to how humans have exploited the natural underground with prehistoric cave paintings, to burials, to mining, to the search for dark matter in the universe, to burying nuclear waste safely for millennia. He charts a revealing path through these seemingly disparate subjects, drawing on his personal experiences, with a confidence and ease that is compelling and even examines how some ancient myths of the underworld seem to foretell and have resonance with our actions today. This really is a warning call for all to consider how we treat nature.
