Publisher's Summary

In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.

His fateful decision unleashes a drastic series of events. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken. The silo is about to confront what its history has only hinted about and its inhabitants have never dared to whisper. Uprising.

    "Better off reading this one..."

    The story was very good, it drew me in and kept me listening despite the awful narration. I got about halfway through the audiobook, and then decided just to read the rest.

    Her narration is absolutely ridiculous.

    "Fun"

    Interesting story and world the author built. I really enjoyed the ride, felt a bit vague at some parts, but a real epic world.

    Story
    "Wonderful dystopian fiction. Worst narrator ever..."

    I had read this first, before listening. You should too. Narrator essentially ruins the book here. Cartoonish. I have about 50 books in my audible library. This is the poorest performance of a book not read by the author.

    However, the story is amazing. If you're into stuff like Blade Runner or Wind Up Girl, you'll love this. Richly detailed, nuanced, very real.

    Story
    "I honestly don't know if I like this book."

    I really want to say this is a fantastic book because all of the reviews I read convinced me to buy it. However I found myself rooting for it to end. The main character isn't very likable. And the story is predictable. I guess I didn't like it very much.

    "Good book."

    Slow going at times, I feel the characters could have been better developed. Narration surprisingly good for a so so book.

    "surprisingly good"

    I enjoyed this book very much. The story is a different take on the old dystopia theme and is refreshing.

    "a better narrator would've been nice."

    The narrators character voices kinda ruined it for me. Her normal reading voice was pleasant, but the men characters were especially bad. ugh. Beyond that, it was a good story.

    "Fallout Similarities"

    Very similar to the game series Fallout. Being the gamer that I am, I was pleasantly surprised to find the two storylines so similar to one another.
