This is one of those books that I am EXTREMELY torn about how to rate. On one hand, the author presents some very interesting hypotheses that I had never really considered before -- and I absolutely love when someone can make me look at things in a whole new light. His arguments are very well thought out -- at least initially -- and seem to be exhaustively researched. On the other hand, there are some controversial (and arguably offensive) sections. I'll touch on these just briefly, as I think o ...more

Paranoid misinterpretations of ancient mysteries and Underworld mythology. The author's lack of understanding shows at each turn and his conjectures are not only ludicrous, but also often offensive. I would go off on a suitable rant, but quite frankly I have other books to read.
Starts out with an interesting thesis and expounds upon it with a definite show of research. Then at about the three quarter mark goes right to crazy town.
As a fan of mythology, conspiracy theories, historical texts, and fantasy writing of all types I really enjoyed this book. The book is an interesting albeit highly speculative exploration of different cultures views and understanding of creatures they believe to be living around them as the title suggests, in caverns, caves, and generally underground. Depending on what other books you enjoy you might really like this (those who like ufo literature, paranormal stuff, and secret societies) or find ...more
Simply amazing. Mr. Mott delves deep into some of our most enduring cultural mysteries. His lucid prose is the main ingredient backed up by thoughtful research that makes this book a "must-have" for any student of Forteana. Get it.
This is an extremely interesting book with an interesting and scarey hypothesis that makes more sense to me than the usual "guesses" and "explanations". The answer might just be beneath our feet instead of amongst the stars.
I really liked this book. The kindle version makes it hard to see the illustrations. It did a good job of merging myths and legends with historical accounts. Creeped me out more then once.
