This is a post-apocalyptic tale, but it is also a mystery. Who are the other people in the bunker? Do some of them have other motives? Do some of them know things they are keeping from the others?
Of course, there is conflict from thirty-one people being locked in a bunker for three years. Some people are hiding things. Some are not as they appear to be. The bunker, as described, seems huge, but it is not big enough for these people. Then there is the problem of their food being stolen and a mysterious man who shows up outside the bunker, the first human they have seen since they entered the bunker, who says they have to leave, but doesn't tell them why. Why??
There are characters that are very unlikeable, but this is the story of Finn. He goes into the bunker as a scared boy and undergoes a transformation to being a man and a leader. There are a lot of unanswered questions about some of the people in the bunker, and I was annoyed the answers weren't provided. Of course, that's why there's a second book.
Since this is Saul writing, those things out there are zombies. But I have to say they’re the oddest zombies I’ve seen, in print or on television. Different, new, and interesting, not to mention vicious and speedy. They’re scary critters. I definitely want to read the companion series that explains the zombies and the initial outbreak, if it’s ever published. I’m tapping my toes here. Its title will be The Flense.
Seriously, if you’re a fan of dystopian stories or zombies, you should read this. I think I’ve read an overload of dystopian books, because they’re all beginning to be very predictable. So I am very happy to find a new series with fresh ideas. I had a hard time putting the book down, and that doesn’t happen often anymore. It’s fun to read and I think you’ll like it.
As a fan of post-apocalyptic tales and of the Fallout 3 computer game, I was instantly intrigued by the idea of bunkers.
What could have been fairly dull, the barely changing routines inside a shelter as those within wait out the danger without was anything but.
The intrigue of what may or may not have been done to these survivors and what it will mean makes me want to read the next volume already.
The characters are developed and relatable and the plot imaginative.
