They have been down there for 6 years, but then things don't add up. Jan 09, Liz rated it really liked it. The writing is where I had some issues. When he finds out a nuclear attack has occurred, he rushes his family compounnd The Compound, a shelter he has been working on for almost a decade in case just such a thing occurred.
Fortunately, they have been prepared for this, and their father leads them to a huge, well-constructed, and well-stocked bunker where they can survive for at least fifteen years--the soonest he considers safe for the family to leave.
I'm not sure if I would have felt differently about this book had I read it, because the audio was just so well done. It all starts as Eddy and Eli's family are on vacation.

I would say that The Compound is a very very unique and highly entertaining book. I read this one straight from page 1 -non-stop.
I only laughed because of the whole John Locke hatch thing in Lost. Bodeen No preview available - Sep 09, 05erikk rated it it was amazing. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.

I think the story came together very well. It was one crazy and somewhat predictable ride! The Compound is an elaborate nuclear bomb shelter his father spent an enormous amount of money to build in order to keep his family safe from nuclear fallout.
The Compound (Compound, book 1) by S A Bodeen
The author did a very good job a dropping clues about life in the compound and why bodeeh characters behaved the way they did.
I really liked the ending. One terrible day, the worst happens, and Yanakakis frantically spirits his family underground.
Now, they can't get out. The world they knew is gone, and they've become accustomed to their new life. For one thing, accepting it requires another blow to the story's internal logic: Se soffrite di claustrofobia, non leggete il Rifugio.
Food is running low in the compound as well, and Eli and his mother and sisters can't bear to even bodeen the supplements.
Eli feels a hole in his life that no one or nothing can fill.
I remember knowing kids compoun middle school who s big readers, and in fact, rarely if ever read books outside of class, yet for some reason would stick on one book. I personally didn't like the the first part of the book but was happy I kept reading because it became very interesting. Was there really a bomb? This leads him to doubt everything they have been told, and as he uncovers more and more lies perpetrated compoubd his father, Eli realizes they must escape.
I guess with all the sensitive topics, I just expected a little more from the writing. Obviously I don't have a underground compound but I also don't have a plan for a disaster of huge proportions like this. That I figured out where the answer was hiding several chapters before Eli made the whole affair rather a silly exercise. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.
