When a nuclear war devastates the U.S., a four-day excursion quickly turns into a fight for survival in The Cave. Six Stanford students journey into one of the deepest and longest caves in North America. A day into their journey, a nuclear war begins from within the U.S. Unable to return to the surface, and unsure what they will find when they do, the Cave will test the strength and survival of each person differently – transforming six individuals into a team, and ultimately…a family.
The suspense in this book had me hooked from the beginning, and kept me reading all the way through the end. Not only did I find myself wanting to know what was going to happen to the characters, but I needed to know. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew how the book ended.
A group of six college students plans an expedition into the Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota. They come from all different backgrounds and each have unique majors in college that don’t necessarily have anything to do with their desires to go on this trip. The trip is only set to last for four days, but after a nuclear war breaks out above ground after the first day of their trip, the group forced to stay underground to avoid exposure to nuclear radiation.
The group then has to figure out a way to survive for a month with very limited supplies, and have to constantly hike throughout the caves to find supply boxes and natural streams to survive off of while they wait out their time. And with more hiking comes a lot of accidents and injuries that only slow the group down more and more. By the time that they need to head to the surface, they are in need of some help from outside help, if there is any.
The only thing that bothered me with this book was the way that it ended in a sort of cliffhanger, and only because I wanted to keep on reading about the fate of the students once they reach the surface. That being said, I am most definitely going to have to get my hands on the next book because I must know how this story goes.
