From Hector Tobar
Summary and Analysis
By Summary Station
Deep Down Dark is the inspiring and heartwarming tale of the thirty three Chilean miners trapped in the San José Mine. Told in the style of a novel rather than a list of factual events, you can explore the thoughts and feelings of each of the men trapped deep below the surface. From their initial discoveries of cracks in the Ramp, a long spiral stone road leading down into the mine, to their final rescue, this is probably as close to actually living through the event as you can get. Meet the miners, their wives, girlfriends and mistresses. Get to know their children, born and unborn, and learn the histories which form a backdrop to this story while providing some of the determined backbone they demonstrate while trapped seven hundred meters below the surface of the earth. Get to know, also, some of the rescuers who rallied round at the camps which grew around the outside of the mine, from tearful high-ranking government ministers to drill operators and relatives of the lost men who volunteer to enter the mine looking for their family.
