An absolute gem of a book. I am a great fan of science fiction and expected just another mildly interesting computer goes mad story. It was certainly not 'just another' and was far more interesting than that, indeed it kept me enthralled throughout and never any moment of 'this is getting a bit boring'. It is not an 'action' story, although there are brief bits of that, the story revolves much more around the inter-actions of the main characters with each other as well as to a lesser extent with the computer 'brain' in the nuclear shelter who is slowly becoming 'aware' and exploring the possibilities of his/her/its life. The human characters at first seem somewhat cardboard cut-out and extreme versions of people we see all around us in the news and elsewhere but they develop and become much more interesting personalities as the story evolves with its twists and turns especially as we see the story progressing from each of the characters points of view. Mix all that with some very astute, and accurate, philosophical comments on the state of modern Society, politics and life in general (A J Desmond for Prime Minister anyone?) and we have a truly inspiring as well as an entertaining, and even humorous, story. Great.

Put seven Dysfunctional people together in a nuclear bunker and what do you get?
"Big Bang" that's what !!!!. Not much of anything really happens with the characters, what is well done is the development of these people as you learn about them and their lives before the bunker.
The interaction between the people is well written but the plot (for me) did not have enough action, at times I found it hard to want to keep reading.
The humour part of the book did nothing for me personally, at times it came across as slap stick or farce type humour, which is very hard to put into words.
For me the book is a three star read for the reasons I have given above, but still worth a read.

By Yay!! TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback
What's so good about it?

1. It has the dry humour of the infamous "yes minister" tv series.
2. As it introduces you to each character it makes astute observations on the political and social landscape of our insane world - but with the dark humour of yes minister series.

It's a gem. Sci-fiction with a deep, dark secret.. its true and funny. It's a combination of all those things barristers use in court to dissect a witness and destroy them. It uses every last critical thinking and logical fallacy to show up our era of political correctness and nonsense that defines our age.

And every other paragraph makes you laugh out loud.

This book will totally blindside you... be prepared.

Intelligent humorous sci fi. An absorbing and unpredictable read. I shall seek out more by this author. Occasionally laugh out loud but ultimately thought provokimg.
