Bunker 10

By J.A. Henderson


At eight o'clock in the evening, on Friday 24th December 2007, Pinewood Military Installation exploded. The blast devastated the remote highland valley where the base was located. No official cause was given for the incident. Inside Pinewood were 185 male and female military personnel, and seven children. This is the story of their last day.

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
