I couldn't wait to finish this book just to see what happens to all of the characters! I highly recommend to anyone who loves the post apocalyptic genres. The characters were well written. It's the kind of story that blurs the lines between good and bad in humans. At times a bit wordy, but it could've been my desire to hear what happens next. Get the trilogy and enjoy!!!
Excellent story well told. Would and have recommended this series. The mobile app for This review option is irritating however as you have to type a certain number of words before it will allow you to submit your comments. STUPID. This is the third time I've listened to this series and the second time I've left comments. No more comments
I was satisfied with the book and narrator. Hopefully the author will continue the series. If your looking for another good book to read try, The 100 year old man who walked out a window and disappeared.
I liked how this book wove together books 1 & 2 - and that it doesn't tie up all the loose ends at the end. We're left to think and wonder for ourselves about what happens in the end.
This was not my favorite narrator (I preferred the narrator of book 1).
Hugh Howey rocks. Hated to see it end but oh so glad to get the story. Enjoyable!!! Liked it so much I purchased a book of another series just for the enjoyment of the reading. It was j as good. Howey knows characters. thank you for the great entertainment!
The last book in the 'Silo' Trilogy.
It starts out slow enough, and only really builds interest about half-way through. It wraps up the Silo trilogy in such a way that was somewhat predictable, and allows for another book to follow (if the movie options aren't immediately forthcoming).
This was the weakest of the three books, and also the most confusing storyline.
Hugh Howey was able to draw the series to an end nicely with optimism and closure. A lot had to happen in a short book, but it felt like all the key points were touched on. The ultimate condition of the wider environment is still left open, but there is enough to provide hope and chance for a better life. What I find most surprising is Howey's ability to take what was clearly a short story then expand the world in geographic, political and historic scope. He then provided multiple points of view throughout time and station and wrapped it back up with such a lean word count. It may lack poetry, but The Silo Saga is well executed and managed world building with a beginning, middle and end (although not necessarily in that order).
It'll be a while before I consider reading Hugh Howey again. This was more predictable than the previous book ("Shift") in this series. While Howey is good at building characters it is not enough, I need substance.
use of the word "palm" and the pronunciation "pam" by the narrator
very entertaining series.
