If you are looking for a gripping combination of horror, historical, and adventure, The Cave just may be the book for you. McGill creates an interesting and fast paced plot which keeps your attention. One of the most appealing aspects is the anti-war undertone. McGill takes a different approach by showing his readers realistic details of wartime deaths. These soldiers do not always die in a grand battle, but rather in everyday situations that serve no real purpose. While McGill highlights these senseless deaths, he does so in a manner that is completely respectful and befitting to a fallen soldier.Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It is a very quick read at 185 pages. However, the story never felt rushed, and I was thankful for that.
