BLIND DESCENT The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth

by | Read by Don Leslie

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

We’re all familiar with many adventuring firsts—Everest, the South Pole, a step on the moon. But what about the deepest cave in the world? How many know where it is or who discovered it? Don Leslie’s bold, deep voice is perfect for leading listeners into supercaves with brave and obsessed scientist-explorers. These hostile caves are pitch-black and freezing, and there are more than 50 ways to die in one. Exploration requires long rappels, squeezing through skinny passages with vampire bats, and risky dives. Leslie is adept at employing effective pacing and tone to carry listeners through myriad emotions—from sadness at a team's loss after a death to heart-pumping excitement at moments of discovery. Amplifying the book’s grand sense of scale are color photos of small humans against the backdrop of huge caves. A.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
