Down,down,deeper and down., 30 May 2009
The tale continues down, down, deeper and down. The challenges that we started with, find father, defeat the dominion virus, escape to topsoil and find a home where Will can live safe from threat and stay true to his heritage are all addressed in this latest breathtaking and fast paced instalment.
The elements that I liked about the first two books are still around: the amazement with the World below, both it's ecology and technology, you can speculate about how those things and creatures work. The sociology of the challenge to the totalitarian Styx regime is great for getting you thinking about our own history. The parts about friendship, trust, parenthood and hope will lead to interesting discussions about your own `journey`.
I'm just starting to get a nagging worry that we've really met all these challenges and yet still there's another blooming thing to deal with ... but hey this is fiction after all and I should go with it. When I got to the end of this one I still really wanted to know what happens next and that's got to be good.
