Diary of the Dead At first I was apprehensive about this new entry in Romero s Dead series, but that pretty much disappeared after the first scene The fact that the film was shot all in subjective camera doesn t result in a gimmicky, incoherent mess, like, say, the Blair Witch, but is used intelligently and effectively.

    One thought on “The Bunker Diary

    1. Cora ☕ Tea Party Princess on said:

      5 Words: Brutal, intense, heart-breaking, pensive, horrific.5 More Words: Addictive, amazing, shocking, unbelievable, lost-for-words.There's something about Kevin Brooks' style of writing that I just can't get enough of. I guess it's because the way the narrative flows is similar to the way my own thoughts flow. It just feels so right to read.This is an author who is not afraid to take chances and be controversial. He's not afraid to hit you hard and shock you. And The Bunker Diary just proves t [...]

      While this book was intense and heart-pounding and mind-boggling, I was kind of let down by the ending. I mean, I know not every book is going to be a HEA but this was just too much for me. It sucked the happy right out of me and now I'm depressed. While the writing was impressive, the story's endingwas not.Rating: 1 out of 5 Stars

      This book was part of a Carnegie Short List package I bought for a school library, and I started reading it primarily to figure out if it was appropriate for Middle School or not (view spoiler)[ and I eventually decided that it is not - as it is too brutal(hide spoiler)]. After a couple of pages I had completely forgotten that I read it for work. I laughed, I cried, I ignored the rest of the world until I had finished it.There is a lot of violence and hopelessness in the story, and it calls to m [...]

      Oh myI am finishedI am tremblingI started this book 3 hours ago, now I am finished, I read the last page and then looked at several other blank pages afterI don´t know what to say about this book, how to characterize it. Just - It is sick and wrong and cruel in every possible way. And perfect and honest and true and exquisite in every other way. And you have to read it to fully understand what it is about. The topic is for sure not new, but masterfully executed. Yes this book was executed! No m [...]

    5. Esmeralda Verdú on said:

      Diario del búnker es una novela juvenil diferente a todo lo que he leído antes, como también lo es su protagonista. El final me ha dejado muy asombrada, creía que había un error y que todavía quedaban páginas por leer. No puedo decir que dan la información con cuentagotas porque ni siquiera me dan las respuestas que quería, algo que ha hecho que mi opinión general sobre la historia cayera algo en picado. ¡No me puede dejar así! Necesito muchas respuestas. Si el autor nos quería deja [...]

    6. Adam Silvera on said:

      Masterful and SUFFOCATING. This book is NOT for the happily ever after crowd. It's truly a piece of fiction that is sharp all the way through and the ending drives the knife deep into the reader. I'm not the hugest fan of epistolary novels because the tension sometimes feels far too removed considering it's past tense and you obviously know that no matter what happened the main character is alive, but I was INSANELY ANXIOUS while reading Linus's entries, and this is one of the many reasons I app [...]

    7. Yasmine on said:

      You know that feeling when you finish that book and you sit there motionless for a moment? This book is like that: spellbinding, thought provoking, stunning. I am finding incredibly hard to write this and talk about it coherently because I am just- I don't know. Shocked? Mesmerised I think would be more like it. What I really enjoyed about his book was that although there was a brilliant premise and plot, it was also so psychological and really made me think. I especially liked the way in which [...]

    8. Josu Grilli on said:

      Me ha gustado mucho, sinceramente. No me esperaba que la novela fuera así para nada. Lo que más destacaría es que se lee en NADA, así que si buscas una lectura rápida, este es tu libro. Quizá en un par de horas lo hayas terminado, porque no solo la historia avanza de un modo rápido, sino que el estilo del autor es algo experimental (algo que me encanta) y demuestra mediante palabras el estado del protagonista, Linus. (Puesto que la novela es un diario, tiene sentido, claro.) Así que si t [...]

    9. Anita Vela on said:

      Reseña completa: anitavelabooksDiario de búnker es el diario de Linus y se podría decir que es una mezcla entre Gran Hermano y SAW, imaginad que se puede sacar de eso: demasiada locura junto con partes un poco macabras y duras, por eso la comparación con SAW, y eso que supone que es una novela juvenil, pero puede pasar perfectamente por una historia de adultos. Sinceramente, a mí me ha parecido una historia muy original, te engancha por momentos, conforme vas leyendo quieres leer más y má [...]

      Until Tatiana reviewed this, I realised I'd actually forgotten to do so myself. And, frankly, skip this one. Please. I'm saying that to protect you.The Bunker Diary made me think of my seriously unsettled view of True Art Is Angsty. The Bunker Diary is relentlessly miserable, depressing, and unforgiving. Think of the worst ending you can think of and triple it. It's well written, it's well structured, but it's not good.Yes, I have no doubt that those of you who loved it (and possibly Brooks hims [...]

      4½ Out of 5“I thought he was blind. That's how he got me. I still can't believe I fell for it. I keep playing it over in my mind, hoping I'll do something different, but it always turns out the same”“A thousand questions have streamed through my head.Where am I? Where's the blind man? Who is he? What does he want? What's he going to do to me? What am I going to do?I don't know…”Linus was living on the streets, living rough. But that doesn't mean he was rough. When he saw the blind guy [...]

    12. Natasha Mostert on said:

      “It’s morbid. Why piss on life before you’ve even lived it?” This is a line from the excellent spy drama ‘Page Eight’ in which Bill Nighy’s character critiques his daughter’s tortured paintings. I was reminded of this line last night when I read the truly reprehensible book “The Bunker Diary.” As an author myself, I rarely rubbish any novel, but I do have a short list of books I find beyond redemption. Brett Ellis’s “American Psycho” is one. This YA novel by Kevin Brook [...]

    13. Jo Reads on said:

      E' un libro che ti distrugge lentamente, come distrugge i suoi protagonisti. Lo stile è limpido, pulito diretto, onesto angosciante, come la storia che narra. E' un libro che non posso fare a meno di consigliare, ma devo dire onestamente, che sarebbe meglio che vi facciate un'idea di quello a cui andate incontro prima di iniziare la lettura.

      Bunkerdagboek, een boek dat ik nooit zal vergeten, zeker door het einderdygeekyfanboy/recensie/

    15. Martina on said:

      I dont really know what to say about this book. I found it quite boring and extremely dissapointing.The start was promising. Sixteen year old Linus was taken and imprisoned in a bunker. Throughtout the novel, more people joined him. Well that's basically it, nothing more happends.There is a bit when Linus is looking back on this life and I guess this is supposed to make the reader feel sorry for him, but the whole poor little rich boy bullshit did not work for me.Except for Linus, there is no ch [...]

      Rating: 4/5This can't be the end. OMG!!! Full review to come

    17. Enma on said:

      He pensado bastante al rededor de este libro y si tengo muchas cosas que decir."¿Por qué seis?No lo séAquí no hay nadie más que yo."En primer lugar, la historia es muy interesante pero se ve empobrecida por el desarrollo que tuvo a lo largo de todo el libro. "Me quedé sentado durante un rato en una oscuridad pétrea, siempre con el oído atento por si el ascensor bajaba de nuevo. No sé que esperaba, tal vez un milagro, o quizás una pesadilla. Pero no sucedió nada. Ni ascensor, ni pisada [...]

      Se que uno tiene que respetar las opiniones de los demas, ser un poco diplomatico. Pero que carajos estaban pensando los que calificaron de 5 estrellas a este libro? Habran leido otro? Puede que existan varios con el mismo nombre. No existe otra explicacion. No puede ser, escapa toda logica.Como pueden publicar esto? En la editorial estaban borrachos, drogados y locos?Esto, acaso tiene publico? No puedo dejar de plantearme dudas.En fin, queda desplazado "Padre Rico, Padre Pobre" como lo peor que [...]

    19. Alice Oseman on said:

      This book is absolute perfection. I would not change a single thing about it, especially the ending. The messages are so intricately woven and muddled in with often completely meaningless diversions that it can at times be difficult to understand what Brooks is actually attempting to communicate - but that's all part of the wonderful, intriguing mystery of this book. The reason that I couldn't give it full stars is because it's absolutely the most horrifying and unforgiving book I have ever read [...]

    20. Tatiana on said:

      So depressing and so pointless in the end. I guess I need someone to explain it to me?I wanted to accuse whoever judges Carnegie medal awarding of being morbid, but then I remembered Printz Honor for Nothing, which is only slightly less depressing, but better written. In the end, I would classify The Bunker Diary as more of a torture porn experiment (like those Saw movies) than quality literature for teens. But that's just me.

    21. Angigames on said:

      Claustrofobico, perfido, asfissiante, crudele… potrei andare avanti all’infinito. Sicuramente non uno YA leggero ne una lettura banale. È un viaggio nella sofferenza, nella perdita di speranza, nella disperazione più nera. Non c’è niente che i protagonisti potrebbero fare per migliorarla, ne per cambiarla. Ma di questo ci si accorge solo dopo un po’…Linus, ragazzino di strada, ma con una mente intelligente e molto più saggia rispetto anche ad alcuni suoi inquilini, è un narratore [...]

    22. Barbara Band on said:

      I'm not quite sure what to say about this book. I read it because it was on the Carnegie shortlist, although I have enjoyed previous novels by Kevin Brooks so this would probably have ended up on my to-read list anyway.It's basically a story about 6 people who are captured by an unknown man and put into a buried bunker where he plays mind games with them. I found it exceedingly gripping and couldn't put it down but, after I'd finished it, I began to wonder what the point of it all was? We aren't [...]

      Me han pasado cosas muy raras mientras leía este libro; y es que hombres siniestros con porno bajo el brazo me han invitado a la radio a hablar sobre él (sobre el libro, no el porno) un martes a las 9 de la mañana en el metro. Pero en fin.Tenía grandes esperanzas puestas en este libro tan premiado y tan polémico, pero POR EL AMOR DE DIOS no es para tantoÑORAS Y SEÑORES, NO ES PARA TANTO. No veo la polémica.Si, el libro está bien, la historia es interesante y el final, el merecido, porqu [...]

    24. Karin Michael on said:

      This book was bitter-sweetly heartbreaking which left me feeling depressed a minute after I finished reading it. The sad thing is there are some sick people like that in the world who do such things and that makes me hate the world we live in.Full review to come.

    25. Aviendha on said:

      Maliyeti düşük, kadrosu az, konusu sığ gerilim filmleri vardır ya, kitap tamamen o konseptle eşdeğer. Kısa cümleler, ikili diyaloglar, boş sayfalar ve bağlantısız, sonu olmayan bir ölüm günlüğü. Neden, niçin tarzı soruların yanıtının bulunmadığı, karakterler tahlili yapmanın mümkün olmadığı bir anlatım. Reklamı başarılı, paketi kaliteli ne diyeyim.

    26. Gavriella Troper-hochstein on said:

      Uummm Where do I even begin? What I'd like to do is just ask why anyone would ever write a book like this. And then I'd have that person committed to an asylum. Because, wow. Talk about horrific. It's not that "The Bunker Diary" isn't well written, far from it, but why any person would have a desire to read (or write) something so gruesome and appalling is beyond me. I would have given this book five stars for the beautiful poetry of the writing, had the main character not died in the end, appar [...]

    27. Alessia D.C on said:

      Che libro strano e particolare. Che ansia, panico, terrore che attanaglia. Le emozioni che si vivono con Bunker Diary sono tutte molto definite e devastanti, non si ha scampo. Con una narrazione potente e molto personale Brooks riesce a coinvolgere il lettore in prima persona, perché il suo protagonista parla a noi, sembra scrivere proprio per noi il suo diario. Ma è veramente un'agonia seguire quello che succede a questo ragazzo e ai suoi "compagni", trovarsi lì e non capire e non sapere pro [...]

      Hay veces que descubres un libro y piensas: Este libro no está hecho para mí. Entonces lo dejas de lado, pero al cabo de poco vuelves a leer el argumento de nuevo y piensas: Ostras, pues podría estar bien. A partir de aquí parece que el libro te persiga, exigiéndose tiene que lo leas, hasta que al final ya no te quedan uñas de las ganas que tienes de leer el libro. Pues si, eso exactamente ha sido el que ha pasado con Diario del búnker.Diario del búnker es el diario personal de Linus, un [...]
