Reviews

  • How prescient and timely ... This is a tartly thoughtful work, by turns witty and philosophical, with an undercurrent of anger at the way we are governed and the commodification of existential fear. He writes pacily, bringing to vivid life a gallery of survivalist wingnuts, conmen and evangelists.

    Nick Curtis, Evening Standard
  • A kind of apocalyptic Super Size Me, in which the author force feeds himself a steady diet of paranoia, conspiracy, eschatology and end-times architecture.

    Chris Hall, The Guardian
  • This baseball-cap wearing academic is the world's leading expert on survivalists ... But he never expected Bunker to be so topical.

    Rachel Sylvester and Alice Thomson, The Times
  • Brilliant ... Bunker, self-evidently a work for our times, shimmers with a Ballardian imagery of disaster and melt-down.

    Ian Thomson, The Spectator
  • Bunker is a thoughtful study into the nature of paranoia and the people who try to profit from it - and it makes for a page-turning read.

    Nathan Brooker, Financial Times
  • A scary, unputdown-able account ... No book could be more timely as we stay in our own little bunkers to avoid infection, strip the supermarket shelves of loo paper, and squirrel away supplies of food to see us through the shortages that many fear will follow a no-deal Brexit.

    Richard J Evans, New Statesman
  • This study of bunker sites and the people preparing for the worst couldn't be better timed.

    Andrew Anthony, The Observer
  • Garrett's research has involved hanging out with millenarian fruitcakes, disaster profiteers and the uber-rich, not to mention tooled-up, swivel-eyed anarcho-libertarians from America to Australia ... His sense is that disaster gives us an opportunity to rethink how we live. What will we learn?

    Stuart Jeffries, The Guardian
  • This is a gripping and timely book about both the 'architecture of dread' and its multi-billion dollar industry, and what the growing appetite for bunkers reveals about the social conditions in which we live.

    New Statesman
  • Garrett is a bright and buoyant guide and Bunker rattles briskly along ... A necessary read.
