Reviews

  • a brilliant, thrilling, terrifying work of literature, making me want to think more adventurously and live more deeply.

  • All Macfarlane's books are urgings to take a closer look at the environment we live in, and at the natural world especially. They are perception-shifters. And with its darker, delving subject matter counter-weighing its lyricism, Underland is a magnificent feat of writing, travelling and thinking that feels genuinely frontier-pushing, unsettling and exploratory

    Evening Standard
  • The great nature writer, and nature poet, of this generation

    Wall Street Journal
  • An epic descent into a series of underground and underwater landscapes

    Financial Times
  • Beautifully and bravely balanced... This is a radical book in every sense. It goes as deep as it can, unafraid of the risk that what it finds will turn everything on its head

    The Oldie
  • Eye-opening, lyrical and moving...capturing the poetry beneath the science.

    Publisher's Weekly
  • Underland is a startling and memorable book, charting invisible and vanishing worlds. Macfarlane has made himself Orpheus, the poet who ventures down to the darkest depths and returns - frighteningly alone-to sing of what he has seen

    New Statesman
  • You'd be crazy not to read this book

    The Sunday Times

    The Times
