    • I read this book during the 1961 Berlin crisis while still in primary school Science fiction was already an addiction and I d put away a book or two a day when school wasn t in session Politics was also of interest since Dad had been a vocal supporter of Kennedy against Nixon the previous year as well as active in community affairs Indeed, he took me to village board meetings, encouraging my interest in public affairs and reading of the newspaper.The Berlin crisis had lasted from the previous sp [...]

    • Review below contains some spoilers Bleak With no chance of redemption whatsoever If you like happy endings, you might want to stay away from this book This book is quiet similar to On the Beach and Alas, Babylon, both in the era in which they were published and the primary subject matter with which they deal nuclear apocalypse While I personally found On the Beach totally unimpressive and a drag, Alas, Babylon became one of my favorite novels So where does Level 7 stand Well, while it may not b [...]

    • Level 7 is the tale of a military man who lives in a bunker 4,400 feet below the surface of the earth His job is to sit in a room and wait for the command to push a series of buttons which will unleash complete nuclear destruction on the earth He is not told why he is to go into the bunker beforehand, and when he gets there he finds out that he must spend the rest of his life there.He s not the only one down there There are two people like him who wait in shifts for the command to come Then, th [...]

    • This is one of those books that rewards patient reading its cumulative power is immense We follow the diary of a man who lives on Level 7 of a bunker where the best and brightest go in a kind of experiment to see how humans would endure extended life in isolation after a nuclear holocaust The details of day to day life are interesting enough, but the book s best aspect is the growing sense of dread that our protagonist will have to do his duty in case of war Once he does this simple, unremarkabl [...]

    • I am the god who pushed the buttons, says the narrator, a dull nuclear weapons technician who happens to be the proximate cause of starting World War III Later, he apologizes for this atypical and unprofessional lapse into poetry.

    • A deeply sarcastic dystopian novel regarding the stupidity of nuclear weapons, decisions behind and behaviour of people involved However, I have found the characters and writing too dull to empathize with the enormity of the act.

    • I m not sure where this book would rank on my list if I re read it now but it left an indelible mark on the mind of my twelve year old self Aside from weeks of nightmares about an atomic war, it s influenced my opinion of every other post apocalyptic novel I ve read since usually to their detriment, as none of them ever hit me emotionally in quite the same way.

    • Ever since reading Survivor Type by Stephen King at what was most likely too young of an age, I ve been a sucker for the whole writing a diary while going mad genre If you re willing to suspend the disbelief required of the best examples of this writing, i.e how on earth are you still writing stuff down when you re insane , then it can be a real treat, as far as I m concerned Unfortunately, this book is not a shining example of the crazy diarist Although the initial premise is quite exciting, th [...]

    • This book provides so much food for thought It s incredible how humanity have to destroy what they have on the hope that they,will win something completely desnecessary.

    • Level 7 is the story of an atomic war, and of the post apocalyptic world briefly succeeding it Written at the start of the race for nuclear domination, in plain Cold War s mid 1950s, Mordecai Roshwald s book was aimed to be a deterrent to atomic weapons and related politics Overall, a frightening book that reads poorly had it not been for the topic, a solid 1 star.The plot is simplistic the two world super powers have both acquired nuclear bombs sufficient to wipe each other out When the trio mi [...]

    • Level 7 isn t truly a book that I just read It s a book that I ve just re read, which is a bit different With over 25 years since the first reading, however, my views and appreciation for the art intrinsic in the novel have changed a bit.First off, I should say that the copy I first read was without the preface found in my new copy For first time readers I d recommend reading that preface after the whole of the novel It s rather heavy handed in reinforcing the spin of the novel and rather ruins [...]

    • What I found most disturbing about this novel was not the hopelessness of the Level 7 dwellers, buried thousands of feet beneath the earth, then assigned to annihilate humanity and continue living for 500 years I suppose we ve heard that story before and become dulled to the prospect of a fusion armageddon I was repelled by the personalities of the individuals on level 7 X 127 guesses that they must have all been chosen for their mission because they don t like others, and are all somewhat anti [...]

    • This book starts off really good and grabs your attention right away, and it ends even better Its basically about a man who is in training and gets promoted and taken 4,300 feet below ground to do his job, with a select group of other people The earth is scorched due to nuclear war and the only survivors are those who went underground The book is written in a diary format as the main character enters level 7 and all the way until the end This is a must read if you ask me, great book well written [...]

    • Awesome book Simply told, very powerful I ve been reading a whole lot of nuclear apocalypse themed novels from the 50s and 60s lately and I reckon this takes the cake It s beautifully written the characters are distinctive and authentic despite being described so economically the plot is brilliantly crafted and rings true the psychology and sociology and politics and everything is just spot on I really can t recommend it highly I do recommend that you don t read the lengthy, scholarly introduct [...]

    • I just finished reading Wool, another post apocalyptic book about life underground, and decided it was time to read Level 7 again About ten years ago my teenage son and I both read it and agreed it was quite good Level 7 is written in the form of a diary It is the diary of a military man who has been assigned to Level 7, a subterranean command post bomb shelter that has been built to endure for 500 years if need be The personnel who are stationed here are technicians, doctors, psychologists, tea [...]

    • I am so glad this novel is now available in e book form I read it in high school, loved it, and have wanted to read it again I m sure that beat up library copy was out of print even then What I just noticed it was published in 1960 No wonder it was in crappy condition and smelled of mildew I am even impressed the story feels so 2011ish.The story is told in diary form, written by a missile technician only known as x 127 The story starts out as the solider x 127 and 250 other soldiers men and wom [...]

    • Very chilling book I have always been obsessed with stories films about nuclear holocaust This is an older book, written during the Cold War between the U.S and Russia As was common at that time, the story focuses on the absurdness of the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction , wherein if two parties are engaging in nuclear war, both sides try to completely destroy the enemy even if they themselves have already been decimated.Level 7 revolves around a multi level underground bunker that holds mi [...]

    • A little difficult to find a copy of this This is a quick read, which surprised me I expected a much worse novel, to be honest I expected tedious preaching and vague droning Instead, this is the novel that happens after all the faux conundrums get asked You know, If you got paid a trillion dollars if you just pressed a button but that button destroys so many people would you do it This is that novel Very clinical and scientific approach to the worst situation mutual destruction via atomic weapon [...]

    • The book reads like a twisted version of Plato s Republic a dissertation on the sort of society and people required to commit and survive atomic armageddon It is a coldly logical social structure inhabited by emotionally stunted human beings, whose purpose is to be the push button operators for otherwise fully automated weaponry, and later to continue the species.Parts border on parody From their deep hole bunkers, politicians spit vitriol upon their enemy counterparts, even after such chest bea [...]

    • Den h r l ste jag i skolan n r vi l ste engelska C eller n got i den stilen ist llet f r den egentligen ordinerade boken som verkade svintr kig Det var allts uppemot 10 r sedan jag l ste den, men den gjorde nd ett starkt intryck Det kan ha varit den f rsta boken jag l st som handlade om K rnvapenkriget msesidig total f rg relse som hotbild mot v rlden r en aning pass idag av flera sk l mer akuta k nns problem med t.ex klimatf r ndringar eller antiobiotikaresistens men jag vill nog nd vidh lla at [...]

    • I struggled with whether to give this three or four stars I settled on four because any novel written almost 55 years ago that feels this fresh and relevant is really quite remarkable While reading, I found myself wishing that detail had been given, and time devoted, to background and personal information about the characters, particularly the narrator I suppose, however, that it was effective to maintain the nuclear war mentality by not making it so much a human story as an inhumane one Certa [...]

    • Livello 7 il diario dell ufficiale X 127, assegnato di guardia sul fondo del pi profondo rifugio antiatomico.Quattromila metri sotto terra, il Livello 7 stato costruito per sostenere attacchi atomici e garantire l autosufficienza per cinquecento anni in caso di attacco nucleare.Le bombe atomiche esplodono, ma le cose forse non andranno come previstoQuesto potente romanzo distopico del 1959 rimane una delle pi disperate visioni sulla guerra atomica.

    • This is apocalyptic than post a story about a level 7 soldier commanding the nation s nuclear arsenal By the quotes you ll understand he s neither really a soldier, nor is he really commanding anything The above ground war is all very abstract for him, but his life and personality feel just as abstract to us he s just a number, no longer human He s part of the machine.

    • Pretty straight forward post nuke serving of the everyman, the consummate serviceman, cog in the wheel A pretty enjoyable treatment on the power of passivity, I think this might be a good preface to reading the Stranger finish strong of course , both are heavy with the hand of hopelessness, resolved faith in the faithless, it s worth a read.

    • I m stuck between 3 or 4 stars for this one I liked the book, but the dismissive, dated treatment of women put me off, for example Perhaps women are self sufficient than men provided they have men and less affected by environment

    • Kind of wish I didn t read this book Don t know what possessed me to keep reading it Worst writing style I remember in a while It is clear that the author was going for a kind of satire, setting up straw man characters to poke fun at Didn t work Don t read it, really.

    • Grim and horrifying depiction of life in an underground bunker, waiting to unleash the missiles that will destroy the outside world, then doing just that and reaping the consequences Written in first person diary form Highly recommended.

    • The incredible stupidity of the human race, in 200 pages or less Nuclear war destroys humanity, or humanity destroys humanity through nuclear war Hugh Howie must have gotten his inspiration for Silo from Mordecai Roshwald Just read it.

    • Reads like an old school utopia novel the kind that s explaining what the utopia s going to be like, rather than the kind with a y no, plot.
