In reading the front cover i thought the book would be some what disturbing. But i was wrong it, it was more on the boring side than the creepy side. At the same time it was also terrifying for me. As a child who grew up fearing the dark (i dont any longer... somewhat) this book scared the hell out of me. Because when i was in the dark this is how i felt, i thought everything was alive and that the monsters were out to get me. but to be in a cave miles under the earth, alone in the dark... it's ...more

I read this as a teenager. It made a lasting impression on me. I re-read it as an adult, still a great read!
