Transcript of The Compound
in the compound with their parents for 6 years.
His father is a billionaire who built this shelter
to keep his family safe from a nuclear war.
Unfortunately, Eli's twin brother and grandmother
didn't make it into the compound in time.
They planned on living in the compound
for fifteen years until it was safe to go
back to the outside world.
Eli does not like his new home because he is without
his twin brother.
Eli ends up distancing himself from his family.
Eli notices that his father is always in his office
and never lets anyone in.
He starts to realize there are big faults
in his father's plan for survival and they
start running out of food.
After awhile Eli notices his father's strange and
He finds him lying about things and hiding stuff in
Eli knows things are not right when he finds out he
has an internet connection on his laptop.
Eli has to find a way to get out with his family and
away from his insane father. Eli all alone. Eli's dad's office where only
he is allowed in. "I suddenly wished I had told Lexie about Eddy and the internet before. She deserved to know. But I wasn't done. "When I think of everything you made us do." I looked at Lexie before turning back to Dad. "And none of them were necessary. Not even one. This place wasn't our sanctuary. This was your world. Your twisted world." (164) This is my favorite paragraph of the book because this is when Eli starts to find out about the many lies his father has been telling. It helped tie everything together and make sense of it all. The most hurtful lie was when he was told his brother was no longer alive. Also this part of the story kept me the most anxious and I found it hard to put the book down. S.A. Bodeen grew up on a dairy farm in
Her first friends were cows, which she named
after characters in books.
From there she went on to be a Peace Corps
volunteer in East Africa, and has lived in
seven states, as well as a remote Pacific
She adores books and is a big fan of cheese.
She now lives in Oregon. Other books she wrote are The Gardener and several picture books, including Elizabeti’s Doll, winner of the Ezra Jack Keats Award.
The Compound earned her an ALA Quick Pick for Young Adults, a Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year, and a Publishers Weekly "Flying Start." http://www.google.com/search?um=1&hl=en&rlz=1R2ADFA_enUS412&biw=1104&bih=430&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=library+office&oq=library+office&aq=f&aqi=g2g-m1&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=5124l9274l0l9444l19l17l0l1l1l0l230l2060l0.11.2l15l0 http://www.google.com/search?um=1&hl=en&rlz=1R2ADFA_enUS412&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=XhFdTuK4MIrdgQeL7M3lAQ&ved=0CDsQvwUoAQ&q=lonely+boy&spell=1&biw=1366&bih=430 http://www.google.com/search?um=1&hl=en&rlz=1R2ADFA_enUS412&biw=1104&bih=430&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=s.a.+bodeen&oq=s.a.+bodeen&aq=f&aqi=g-m1&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=40298l45219l0l45479l13l12l1l0l0l0l220l1720l2.7.2l11l0 U.S. Nuclear Bomb Test After reading The Compound I would recommend readers be the age of thirteen and up. Due to the graphic nature of the story line, it is my opinion it would be unsuitable for younger children.
I thought this book was fantastic. I never got bored reading it. It was very suspenseful and educational. I learned alot of things about nuclear wars. Such as nuclear explosions produce thermal radiation which causes destruction within seconds. It never occured to me that such a type of war could lead to a family having to stay in a compound for fifteen years. It is hard to beleive that it would be so long before it was safe to return to the outside world.
The book was so well writen and realistic, I could picture every scene. It touched my heart and even made me cry. I would highly recommend for any young adult to read it. The entrance to the compound.
