Publisher's Summary

This is the sequel to the New York Times best-selling Wool series. It combines the three Shift books into a single audiobook in order to save the listener a few bucks. The saga concludes with Dust, which will be available in late 2013.

In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platform that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate.

In the same year, the CBS network re-aired a program about the effects of propranolol on sufferers of extreme trauma. A simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event.

At almost the same moment in humanity's broad history, mankind had discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall - and the ability to forget it ever happened.

    "love this series of books!"

    this is a continuation of a wonderful series. Tim Gerald Reynolds adds to the story with his masterful narration. I really enjoyed the way Howey filled in some of the blanks with this one.

    "Great Parallel to Book 1"

    I enjoyed how this book told the back story and brought us to a convergence with the outcomes of book 1. It was not clear how things would converge, or even whether they would, but it all came together somewhat expectedly. Well considered storyline and leaves enough unknowns to entice us to read the final book in the trilogy.

    "Nice to get some answers"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad to have listened to this book and didn't find it as tedious or technical as some other reviewers but I definitely understand their complaints. It's not as exciting as Wool but it was nice to get some answers and I feel like the narrator had a plausible excuse for how it all came about. Tim Gerard Reynolds' narration was excellent as always. Although, I noticed a few people mention that the way he pronounced palms (pams) was super annoying which is funny because it's true.

    "Very good story of distopian world"

    Very good storytelling set in a distopian future earth. Howey builds his characters and their surroundings and has a good balance of just a little of the how stuff. Techno - babble is minimzed, except a bit about nanotechnology.

    "Amazing series"

    Loved this book, I'm starting the third in the series now! Great character depth, unique and frighteningly believable plot. Great writing. The author tells many storylines at once, in different things periods, but does an amazing job thing them together with little statements that excite you to realize the connection.

    "A few holes, but eventually made sense"

    Wool was good. This "prequel" confused me initially. Got better 3/4 through. I'm now ready for "Dust."

    "...intricate and sometimes surprising backstory..."

    I had a hard time staying focused on listening at times in the beginning, but I stuck with it, and ended up loving it as much as Wool.It starts off seeming like a completely different story, but it ends up weaving an intricate and sometimes surprising backstory.
    I don't know if I can wait 3 weeks for my next credit, to listen to the next one!
