I would recommend it to anyone who likes dark, thought-provoking SciFi.
The story compares favorably to the classic Philip Wylie book about a post-nuclear-apocalypse and a small group of people living in a bunker -- I believe that book is called "Triumph". It made an impression - I still remember it well 50 years after reading it. I'll remember the story from this Silo trilogy years from now as well.
The performance was not up to snuff. The story's narrator Donald was supposed to be from the American South, so it was jarring every time to hear an obvious Yankee accent simply mis-pronounce words like "palm" as "pam". His rendition of women's voices was lacking. . I've listened to a lot of Audible books -- while not the worst, Mr. Reynolds was in the bottom five percentile. I will avoid books read by Mr. Reynolds in the future.
No. The first two books are just too depressing to sit through all at once -- this book is the culmination of the trilogy started with Wool, and continued in Shift. I had to take those books in small doses. Had the trilogy not ended well I would have canceled Mr. Howey off my list of authors to read/listen to. However, the end book delivers.
