Editorial Reviews

Review

`I get sent quite a lot of books...and can't get past the first few pages of most of them. Thankfully Bunker 10 was an exception. I raced through it. All the excitement of a computer game and all the tricksiness of The Matrix. Plus a lot of humour, some fun characters and no squeamishness about violence. Great stuff. I can't remember when I last read a book with such a high body count. If there were more books like this out there maybe boys would be reading more.' Charlie Higson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
On the back flap of this book, J. A. Henderson says, "Bunker 10 is a dark, adult novel in which the heroes (and some of the villians) just happen to be kids."

I'm not sure that I would agree about Bunker 10 being an adult novel, but it certainly is fun to read as an adult. In his own words, the book is about "kids trapped in an escape-proof complex that is going to self-destruct and is filled with homicidal maniacs, terrorist infiltrators, and a deadly infection..."

That list of things the author says are going on in the book sounds like a lot to pack into 272 pages, but Henderson does it well. Nothing seemed out of place, and nothing felt like it was just too much for the story. Everything was woven together extremely well, and I think that the author does fabulous work at leading the readers on. All of his explanations are plausible, and I, at least, was never quite sure which story to believe.

The only complaint that I have is that there were, perhaps, too many central characters with very common names (Simon, Dave, Jimmy) and common characteristics. It was easy for me to mix them up at the beginning of the story, especially since there were usually always four or five people conversing at once.

I also found the characters hard to like for the middle part of the story, because the reader is told that they are modeled after dictators (Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin), and I just didn't want to feel sympathy for a child who would later grow up to be Hitler.

But overall, I really liked this book. There's genius children, army compounds, time-traveling soldiers, genetic mutations...

It's just a really fun and absorbing read! I never knew where the story would end or how it would get there. In a market short of great books for teen boys, this is one that crosses the gender barrier and does it well.

Format: Hardcover
Seven teenagers, all of them geniuses, live at the Pinewood Military Installation: the most secretive, state-of-the-art military base hidden in the middle of the woods, along with military personnel and some scientists. We don't know what they're doing there; in fact, they're not so sure they know, either. What we know is that on December 24th, the whole place will explode, and there will be no survivors. Or will there be?

What was the cause of the explosion?

Was it related to fifteen-year-old Jimmy's plan to sneak out of the base, by placing transmitters and fooling the guards with his newly created virtual simulations?

Did it have anything to do with the special convoy that arrived on the base mysteriously?

Did the highly classified Project Flower, taking place on the lowest level, go awry?

Did it have anything to do with the disappearance of teen May Rose?

You'll have to read this wildly futuristic thriller to find out.

J. A. Henderson has created an intelligent, suspenseful novel with all the ingredients of the perfect thriller: a confusing plot, virtual simulations, DNA alterations, time travel, shootings, blasts, and, of course, the good guys and the super-evil bad guys.

I bought this book for my 13 yr. old son. He thought it was a little bit on the dark side.
