First two books in the series were good. This one felt like author was just trying to fill pages with words for the sake of wasting my time. Most annoying book I've listened to in quite a while.
I really enjoyed this set of books for the most part. I got the completed trilogy but found my self searching the web thinking I had missed a book each time I started in on the next book. Then I get to the end of the third book and now I feel like I'm missing like 3 chapter's of the end of the story. I have enjoyed this story but probably would not recommend it to a friend because of the gapeing holes in the storyline.
the trilogy is really good. hard to take breaks. I was a bit annoyed by the heroes never being coherent or clever, but the general sorry great. no loose ends, suspense, true interests. a real fear of the Apocalypse!! now I know how it's gonna go down! OMG!
Ok, it’s over. Hugh Howey has brought the saga of the silos to a successful conclusion. Now that the time lines from the previous novels of the series have merged, Howey finishes strong. He lets us know what happens to those who built the silos and those who lived in them. Most of the loose ends are tied up and we are provided with a good sense of closure.
I read this as an audiobook. The narrator, Tim Gerard Reynolds, continued the very good job he started in Shift.
Great story concept, but the story just drags on and on
Pretty much what I expected
Well suited to the book and a great change from Minnie Good who narrated the first book
Give up on Sagas for a while
I'm no stranger to long book or series of books, but this thing just dragged on forever. It never really drew me in and made me anxious to hear the next chapter, I found myself listening just so that I could get though it and on to my next book. A real dissapointment
To have all the answers and see things finally wrap up after everything that has happened in the last two books is what did it for me is this book.
As far as a favorite character that is a very difficult decision, with how these characters are so independent yet so tied together is this. Although I would have to pick Jewels if any of the characters for her role in changing everything in so little time and everything she has had to endure in that time frame.
SPOILER ALERT: DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
The scene when what is left of the survivors from silo 18 finally reach the "Seed" and see that the world is nothing like what they have known their whole lives and are in shock is by far the best.
This book made me happy, or I should say fulfilled by what happens through out it and with how the story ends. After reading the other books I am completely sucked into the lives of the characters within these books and to finally read/hear that things are finally coming together for each one of them in there own way, truly feels good.
The books was as well written as the previous two, so it was a good way to wrap things up. The only complaint with this (which is a silly one) is that it leaves it open to where there could be other book, one that shows how things turn out for those escaped the silo and are surviving in the wild. Also the epilogue talks about them in some kind of room with a massive motor of some kind and how they can't fathom how people made this thing and how they are going to fix it, so I would also like to know what that "thing" is. Other than that though it was good book and a great series. Definitely enjoyed this series and will recommend to my family, friends and anyone else who is look for a great dystopian book/series.
