Review of The Compound by S.A. Bodeen

The Compound - S.A. Bodeen



This book just really wasn't for me. 


Basically, Eli and his family have lived in an underground compound for six years. His dad built this compound in the event of a nuclear war. No luxury was forgotten. He built an underground mansion. Eventually, some problems occur with their "home" Eli begins to question his almighty father. Eli begins to wonder is his family really safer inside or out?


I had some problems with this book. First being the pacing. We have no concept of how much time passes between events. It felt rushed and awkward. I also did not feel attached to any of the characters. We didn't get to see very much of their personalities or see any emotion from anyone. 


There is a sequel to this book, however this concludes with an epilogue that ties things up. I don't really see the need for another.
