My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've read a couple of Kevin Brooks books in my time. I liked iBoy but wasn't quite so enamored with Black Rabbit Summer. The Bunker Diary, however, is the best Brooks creation I've read so far - not to mention the darkest and most devastating. It's no wonder Adam Silvera recommended this book - like his More Happy Than Not, it's a gripping sci-fi-inflected read that, unless you have no soul, will tear your heart out.
Seriously. Once you finish this book, you'll ask yourself the same question Fox's Lucifer asked God in his epic Rage Against The Heavens in Episode 9:
"What's the bloody point?" — #Lucifer— Lucifer (@LuciferonFOX) March 22, 2016
As someone who specializes in writing bittersweet endings, emphasis on "bitter" (it happens when the Amazing Spider-Man movies are your favorites), I was a bit prepared for the trauma of this book...but still, it hurts. It hurts like a mother.
