There were times when reading Culmination when I wanted to put it down and never turn another page. This was not due to the writing but more the subject matter that was the main focus of the book. There are parts when you have to look up take a deep breath and then carry on reading. The book is brave on so many levels and for this reason unique. The book will leave you asking questions such as, if desperate enough would I go to these levels?
The character development is brilliant and you become invested in all the characters. The depth of character writing makes this book flow and allows you to carry on reading past the more harrowing aspects. I have to admit when I started reading I found it extremely convenient that these people with this skill set all met in one area but, this is soon forgotten as the book progresses. The description of the bunker makes the area come alive and I could imagine myself walking through the rooms. The book is well written and flows effortlessly.
The book has a feeling of Lord of the Flies about it and would be an excellent topic for schools and book clubs alike. Many discussion topics are evident from this book including your own mortality and how far you would go to survive. If you’re not easily shocked then I urge you to try it for yourself. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was given this book in return for an honest review.
