Reviews

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

    Literary Review
  • Bradley Garrett spent three years meeting doomsday preppers for his book Bunker ... If we work together, he thinks, there is no reason that a future global catastrophe has to become an apocalypse. Well, that's something.

    Luke Mintz, Sunday Telegraph
  • Bunker is an extraordinary achievement; a big-thinking, deep-diving, page-turning study of fear, privilege and apocalypse told through the space of the bunker. Garrett has written a gripping, grim, witty work of geography and ethnography, which he completed - with eerie timeliness - in the first weeks of the COVID pandemic. A book about prepping and prognostication, then, which had already foretold its own future.
