The Bunker Eleven Down

“Who knows Bob,” John said to the Colonel in a solemn tone. “As far as I am aware, nobody has ever done what we are about to do. Think about it: we are going to put twelve strangers in a bunker one hundred feet underground, and then tell them that all we are going to do is observe their interactions while they perform basic tasks for two weeks. Then we are going to fake a cataclysmic event followed by a complete disconnect for an additional two weeks while we secretly monitor their meltdown from inside. After two weeks of subliminal messaging, and with our guy inside feeding fear into them, they will think World War Three has happened and they are the lone survivors trapped one hundred feet underground. How would you react, Bob?” John asked the Colonel.



About the Author

Timothy King

Tim King grew up in a small town in Northern California with a wide and rocky path laid before him; his parents had divorced when he was young, and he and his older brother were raised by their father while his sister went to live with his mother.  Growing up a teenager in a mountain town was tough; work was hard to come by, and life didn’t have a purpose, survival was the only thought to be had most of the time.
Tim grew to find solace in literature, and he read anything he could get his hands on.  Tim read the Bible from cover to cover when he was but fourteen, and attempted War and Peace when he was fifteen; Tim found War and Peace too confusing about halfway through, too many players, and the Bible ‘just didn’t make sense’.  But through books, Tim found a release from reality, a place he could go and not have to worry about daily life; a dreamland.  However, Tim found this dreamland was but a temporary place, and when he left it, a void would come back into him, a hollowness that could not be filled, yet.
While growing up, Tim spent time in many different churches of multiple denominations, where he heard numerous and sometimes conflicting beliefs; these experiences coupled with the confusion of his earlier reading of the Bible, pushed Tim into a state where he didn’t truly know who his Saviour was.
Tim always professed to be a Christian because he had been baptized as a baby; he was a Christian, no matter what, because that is what Tim had been taught.  Tim grew up taking the wide path in life, for the narrow path was not the way a person had to go when they were saved; this is what his peers had taught him.  Tim thought God wanted him to have fun in life and live however he pleased, as long as he did not hurt anyone, because all was acceptable in God’s eyes if he was saved; this is what society told him.  Tim said he had a personal relationship with his Saviour, but he didn’t, for Tim was a hypocrite and did not care about his life, and the void grew more pronounced.
After wandering aimlessly through failure after failure, Tim met the woman who would change his life and later become his wife, Mary.  Through the passion Mary showed Tim of her love for Christ, she watered the seed which had been planted in his heart many years before, and that seed grew and filled the void that was in him.
Mary led Tim to his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and in doing so, Tim dedicated his life to the Lord; Timothy stopped trying to do his will, and started doing the Lord’s will.  Once Timothy started truly following the Lord and stopped being the hypocrite he had been, his life changed; he secured a new job which caused him and Mary to move to Tennessee, and their family grew in the love of the Lord as their new and remarkable life began.  Through this new life, this rebirth as a child of God, Timothy found himself yearning to create and express his love for His Saviour through the written word.  From this longing to praise His Lord, and through the prodding and guidance of the Holy Spirit, Timothy began writing in the hopes of directing just one to the path of Salvation, one from just surviving, to salvation; for Timothy had realized that every bad decision has a silver lining, the silver lining just had to be found.
Timothy has written three books now, a 90-day devotional, a full year devotional, and a novel; he is presently working on the sequel to the novel, and if his grandson has his way, it will be a trilogy.
Come and let Timothy entertain and teach you through his words; come and find your dreamland.

This book was one of the most intriguing, suspenseful, nail-biting, layered, and inspirational books I have read in quite a while! With just the right number of characters, coupled with a storyline that could happen at any moment, this is the book of 2017 for me.

All should read this author, for he is so good, this should be on Oprah's reading list! – Reviewed by Emily Oaks via Amazon

Ah, it feels like years since I’ve sat down and done a good book review, but with this, I am back in business and eager to see what the reading world has for me. This book review is the first of ten that I am doing for Words Matter Publishing and their published authors, and I have decided to start the series off with a bang (apologies, but my humor has not improved). Today I am reviewing The Bunker by Timothy King, and, as a special treat, I even have a few words from the man himself below the review.
So, let’s get started.
I want to start you off with my favorite part of this book, and this would be a masterful use of dramatic irony on the part of the author. For those who aren’t sure, this technique is used to give readers/watchers information that the characters are not aware of. In horror films this technique has you screaming at the cast not to go into the basement. In this book, the characters are supposed to take part in a social experiment designed to trick them into believing they have lived through a nuclear event. The masterful part of this concept is that there is a cell of North Koreans trying their very best to detonate a nuclear device in the very same city where this experiment is taking place.
This generated a bucket-load of suspense, especially where the team’s vegetable garden was concerned. They were not taking this part of the experiment very seriously because they had pre-packed food to last them the whole time, but as the likelihood grew of them being caught in a genuine disaster scenario, I kept thinking ‘oh no, are they going to be able to survive on what they’ve grown so far!’. The only time I’ve seen this matched is in Under the Dome, where it is revealed in the very first chapter (if I’m remembering correctly) that one of the characters has a brain tumor that slowly makes him more and more unstable.
Now, as much as I like this book there was one problem, I had with the reading which was the ensemble cast. The sub-plots of this story not focused on the titular bunker are not too bad, featuring a small number of characters to keep track of. The bunker itself though features a larger number of characters. It took me a long time to pin down who was who and every once in a while, a character would speak, and I would have to backtrack to work out who he was. I spoke to the author directly about this and I agree it’s a difficult problem to solve because the experiment would need to involve a large number of people, but this is still something to be aware of when reading the book.
That’s it for today’s review. – Reviewed by Marc Townsend via Goodreads

I don't think I've enjoyed any book as much as I enjoyed The Bunker-Eleven Down. So much in fact that I've asked the publisher if #2 and #3 in this excellent trilogy are ready to be published. I hope so as I'm hooked!

This combination, end of times, terrorist and theology will keep you on the edge of your seat. Filled with "what ifs" and concrete answers you will want and need more. I know I do. - Reviewed by Janet

If you were broke, would you volunteer to live underground with 10 strangers for 2 weeks? Would you do it for $2,000? Eleven people said yes and moved into a bunker designed to support life in case of a nuclear holocaust. Then the holocaust came, or did it?

Blending truth with lies and lies with truth 11 people struggle to co-exist together. Will earth survive, and will they? This first book by Timothy King raises questions we all ask and want answers to. A must-read for non-Christians and Christians alike. - Reviewed by PS

The Bunker will have you wondering what would you do if you were in a test situation in a bunker? Is this really something that could happen? What would l do if it were me? Have you ever even thought about something like this?

It will make you think about the choices you make. It will show you that everything isn't always as it appears to be. This story has a lot of unexpected twists that you will enjoy. Will they find out what's really going on? I know l can't wait to see what turn of events will arise next. What do you think, could you do it? - Reviewed by Carol
