    Epub 12th century.co ✓ The World Beneath PDF ´ The World ePUB ↠ world mobile, beneath epub, The World kindle, The World Beneath PDFThe book that this book most reminded me of was Scott Smith's The Ruins But where The Ruins took somewhat interesting and sympathetic characters and built amazing tension The World Beneath took characters I hated and moved ever so slowly toward a somewhat interesting finale It's the story of an estranged father who comes back into his 15 year old daughter's life to take her on a bushwalk in Tasmania The father is a weak willed jerk The mother is a caricature The daughter is ok But spending 341 pages with these people was tedious until the last 40 pages or so They're not likeable but they're also not especially interesting This is one I wish I would have skipped
