    PDF Underground Epub ´ ¹ renegades bempflingen.de underground mobile, Underground eBookAnd this is why it is inadvisable to take recommendations from Overdrive I guess because I'm sure this book would be great for someone but it was a resounding meh for meThe book is part travelogue part philosophical meandering and here's the thing I am always here for travel stories but you have to earn your wittering on about the human psyche and the universal urge and blah blah numinous liminal holy blah You also have to keep the ratio of actual narrative to things you think about when you can't sleep at night pretty high Hunt does not do those things and so this is not the book for me The travel bits were interesting enough but I am going to need to spend a LOT of time reading about spaceships andor banging to take the taste of Hunt's Beliefs About Caves and the Way All Humans Feel About Them away
