{Kindle} ì Bunker Man ¿ eBook or E-pub free

This novel is brilliant A tale of madness that is absolutely authentic This is McLean s masterpiece His earlier stories and plays and his first novel Blackden never hinted at this Nothing he has written since can touch it.A lot of people will hate this book A lot of people will read it and be disturbed I m certain that men can relate to Rob Catto than will admit to that fact. Terrible, terrible At first I thought the book would be kind of a lark or a Magnus Mills style dark comedy Nope As the main character spirals out of control a school girl is violently raped, a homeless man is murdered, lives are shattered and absolutely no point is made. The quote on the cover of this edition could not be any misleading I wonder if this person actually read Bunker Man Duncan McLean is Scotland s answer to Roddy Doyle I ve never read such a ridiculous comparison, that s like comparing J.K Rowling to the Marquis de Sade Roddy Doyle writes comedy This is far from comedy This is absolute psychological turmoil it s very graphic, it s bleak, it s ultimately a traumatic read A relentless psychological thriller that had me gripped from the very first page up until the very last Rob Catto is a thirty year old janitor at a secondary school on the north east coast of Scotland He has a very good loving relationship with his wife Karen It comes to Catto s attention from the school principle that a man has been spotted in the woods next to the school in a parka jacket with the hood up watching the kids Catto tries to track him down, and what begins as natural vigilance, soon turns into obsessive vigilantism, and eventually, when he catches up with the culprit a mentally ill man living in a wartime bunker out by the coast Catto s quest to hunt down the perverts he perceives to be all around him takes a toll on his own mental health, and ultimately, he begins to turn into the one thing that he is setting out to eradicateThis is one of the most gripping things that I ve ever read McLean s writing is superb his dialogue harsh and realistic, at times darkly humorous Catto s descend into madness was well written it was impossible to pin point exactly when it begins to happen, and I think that is because in spite of everything that happens, in spite of the depravity he succumbs to, part of us still empathises with him The ending is as bleak as they come I know that I will read this again, because the psychological menace leaves a lot open to interpretation Bunker Man is a very disturbing book But I would argue that it is underrated possibly, it s been pushed into the shadows by Irvine Welsh s popularity But one thing I can tell you for certain, Irvine Welsh fans will appreciate McLean A highly transgressive, bleak and most of challenging novel, that will leave you numb, and stay with you, for a long time. Well Child molestation, rampant misogyny, rapeit wasn t even just disturbing, it was brutal with no literary merit to redeem it I mean, okay, the writing in terms of portraying a person s descent into severe mental illness was interesting, I just don t know how you can put so much fucked up shit here and never really address any of it I wasn t expecting a happy ending but not this senselessness either. An excellent, and often times disturbing, portrait of a man faced with a somber reality, and the imaginative, maddening realm of his own psyche. This creepy and sometimes scary book is the story of a custodian s descent into madness Disturbing, but worth reading. I wanted to like this but didn tat all Pointlessly transgressive for its own sake. this took me a week to read, i just updated yesterday this is not the most disturbing book i have ever read, but its up there. {Kindle} ò Bunker Man Ø Rob Is A Newly Married Janitor On Scotland S North East Coast A Hooded Figure Who Holes Up In A Concrete Pillbox On The Beach Has Been Seen Lurking Near The School Our Man Takes It Upon Himself To Confront The Pervert But His Interest In The Bunker Man Gradually Tilts From Apprehension Into Vigilantism, Then Obsessed Depravity This really didn t live up to the hype or cover blurb Sex and violence, but written supposedly as literature It s a fine line Luck to escape two stars.
