I had one weekend to read The Compound because I knew that the upcoming week was going to be hectic. I sat down thinking I'd read a few pages and when I got bored I would put it down and would continue it later. To my surprise, I didn't get to the point where I wanted to put it down. I really enjoyed the whole concept of the book and really liked the evolution of the characters, the psycological and physical. Eli, is the eldest son of famous, filthy rich software designer. With his billions of dollars, Eli's father builds an underground compund in order to save his family in case there is a nuclear attack. Well when the warning comes, Eli's twin Eddy and Grandmother don't make it. The rest of the world is destroyed, or so we think...
This book kept me on the edge of my seat and had me thinking about the final result until the very end. Completely enjoyable and an overall great read!

  1. I agree completely. The book was so suspenseful it really kept you reading. I thought some of the characters were a little 2-dimensional, but otherwise it's a great book.
