Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Good characters, nice idea, gripping, very interesting

Cons:Almost no depth, pretty lame theme

The Bottom Line: You should read this book if you like sci-fi and all around action, but might seem a waste of time otherwise.


  You can jusge a book in alot of ways, all of whick I took into account when I decided if I liked The Compound or not. You could decide if you think it's good it or not by looking at the writing style, the theme, the depth, the characters, or the overall creativity. What makes a good book, however, is a combination of all those aspects. 


   The Compound was strong in almost all of those ways. The writing style was not prime, but well done, the theme was a little lame but still satisfactory, the characters were believable, and it was generally a creative idea. However, it was a bit cheesy towards the end, and when I finished it, I felt like the book was lacking something. Days later, I found out what it was: depth. That is, however, a small flaw and will only bother the people who are very critical about books. 



   "The Compound" is about a young man who's father built an underground refuge to save his family from a nuclear war he, and only he, knew about. He was a very rich and powerful man, and his family believed him whole-heatedly and agreed (as if they had a choice) to come into the underground hidey-hole. Enhanced in the beginning by T. S. Elliot's poem, this is not to be missed unless you have something very important to do.



   I certainly found it interesting and gripping, with twists at every turn and surprises whenever there's even a slight chance to be surprised. Although it had some completely disgusting cannibalistic ideas in it (which really made it more interesting), it was a good book, recommended to all young adult/teen/mature children who have even a slight interest in science fiction.
