It was interesting to see what can happen when you are trapped in a space doing the exact same thing over and over. Eli was very upset that his twin Eddy did not make it down, and he blames himself. Rather than be upset for six years, he used his emotions to protect his family from the same fate as what he believed Eddy had. It was amazing to watch who Eli became, and what lengths he went to in order to keep his family safe.
It was the idea of a compound that grabbed my attention. It had everything that they needed: food, water, clothes, medicine, and practically everything else. You would think that would be cool, but it would get boring eventually. It made me think about what I would do if I was trapped underground for 15 years!
I highly recommend you read this book. I cannot wait to read the second book, The Fallout.
