    Wool introduced the silo and its inhabitants. Shift told the story of their making. Dust will chronicle their undoing. Welcome to the underground.

    Tango says: "Meanders, then races to a satisfying conclusion"
    "Long, depressing story that ends well"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it to anyone who likes dark, thought-provoking SciFi.


    What other book might you compare Dust to and why?

    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.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.
