Inhaltsangabe zu „The Bunker Diary“ von Kevin Brooks

I can't believe I fell for it. It was still dark when I woke up this morning. As soon as my eyes opened I knew where I was. A low-ceilinged rectangular building made entirely of whitewashed concrete. There are six little rooms along the main corridor. There are no windows. No doors. The lift is the only way in or out. What's he going to do to me?

Ein sehr mental angreifendes und teilweise verstörendes Buch. Nur empfehlenswert für Psychothriller-Liebhaber.

Bis zum Himmel und zurück

Hat mir gut gefallen und ich würde es auf jedenfall weiter empfehlen


Dann schlaf auch du

Unglaublich gut geschrieben. Ich war gefesselt von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite. Das Ende kam mir dann noch etwas zu schnell.


Die Farbe von Milch

Ein polarisierendes Werk über ein Mädchen in der Knechtschaft autoritärer Männer


Wenn Martha tanzt

Ausbildung im Bauhaus, Synästhesie, verschollen im Umfeld der Gustloff, wiedergefundenes Tagebuch - Fantasie des Urenkels - großartig


Die Farben des Lebens

sehr tiefgründiger Roman zum Thema Familie und Alter, der zum Nachdenken animiert!

    The Bunker Diary


    23. August 2016 um 10:15

    16-year-old runaway Linus is drugged and kidnapped on the streets and finds himself alone in an underground structure with six rooms, lavatory, kitchen and a lift. After a while five other people arrive in the lift one by one, all drugged or bound and kidnapped in a similar manner.The six people try to cope with being imprisoned in this bunker, being at the mercy of the mysterious „Man Upstairs“ and try to think of an escape plan. Why are they here?What will happen to them? Going into Kevin Brooks' „The Bunker Diary“ I expected a suspenseful tale of people who must try to get along to find a way to escape their situation, who are either stripped off their humanity or have to discover it, in short: some psychological „intimate play“.„The bunker diary“ is suspenseful and well-written (one star for this) and I continued reading to see if they escaped and/or my questions were answered: Who kidnapped them and why? Was there a connection between them? What was the purpose of their imprisonment?These questions are never answered, nothing comes out of this pointless story. It was a very disappointing and depressing ending. Now, I can cope with unhappy endings and those that leave you speechless for a while (like 1984), when they answer questions and finish loose story threads so you feel this story has come to a close. But this felt so pointless and unfinished, it frustrates me to no end. To me, it seems like Brooks just wanted to write a horror-and-torture-story for the sake of torture. Why else bring a 9-year-old girl into this? Just awful! (My daughter's nine, too.)Since everything is told from Linus' POV we don't explore the other characters much. The business people were just flat and nasty, Russell was clever but old and sick, Fred was the hard guy with a soft core and Jenny just a sweet and innocent girl.I'm still not sure if I should rate this book one or two stars. But I definitely don't recommend it to anyone, can't believe it's a YA book.
