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

Loved this book! Loved this whole trilogy! Well done Hugh!!!! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to read a brilliant story... full of hope and redemption!
If you prefer traditional Sci-Fi to fantasy, I recommend this book. The story is original and combines Sci-Fi with a bit of murder mystery while building out the plot and characters pretty well.
The passing of the Mayor and then the cleaning of the Sheriff was very emotional even though somewhat predictable. The sheriff appeared to be smarter than this.
My first Tim Gerard Reynolds listen. He is very good.
Surviving without knowing it!
As great as the concepts were and as detailed as the characters are, for me there's far too much that is not interesting. The story slogs on endlessly with depressing issue after issue, needlessly. Within any section, the writing is very detailed and visual, but sooo much is unnecessary, is depressing, and ends up boring. The first quarter of Wool took me 3 times listening to be able to pay attention to enough to feel to continue. Shift was almost entirely a repititious depressing slog where I kept wanting to quit, then I kept wanting it to end soon. Dust pulled it all together with some close to great moments, but the once again depressing choices by the author minimized how much I could care. Yet the author writes excellently all the way through.
I just wish he would flow positive as well as he can flow negative, he'd be a pleasure and a joy to read. I saw no reason for the characters to lack basic instinct driven human ups and downs, instead always being down and almost always failing.
Wonderful user of words, great basic story, needlessly overly sad and repeatedly boring execution.
Great narrator, fully engagec, but unfortunately I felt to mark narration down because there seemed no effort at all to distinguish the various characters with southern accents, and they were the main characters.
