What People are Saying About This
Watch out, Braveheart! Scurry down your hidey-hole, Rob Roy! Suck it up, Highlander! Here comes Bunker Man: he has an anorak, not a kilt, and he's got a meat-cleaver instead of a claymore, and he's scarier than all three of you put together. Duncan McLean has created one of the most compelling, convincing, and weirdly sympathetic boys in Scottish, no, scratch that -- in any literature anywhere.
Bunker Man is a dark, creepy, resonant novel that stimulates not only the pulse but the mind.
Bunker Man is a tough, gritty, unforgiving exploration into man's darkest hearts....It means to confont evil, its banality and its unimaginable horror head on -- and does so brilliantly.
