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.

Everyone keeps saying how awful the narrator was, which almost led to me not purchasing this. Maybe I'm used to bad narrators or maybe she just wasn't bad. I throughly enjoyed this book. So great. About to purchase the next one. I had no issues with the performance. Sure, some of her voices for characters were a little drastic, but she had to come up with many different voice intonations and to be honest, I think her worst sounding voices were very fitting based on the character and their circumstances. Haters gonna hate I suppose. Amazing story. You won't regret listening to this!!!

Justine Ezarik has been tech obsessed since unboxing her family's first Apple computer. By sixth grade she had built her first website. A decade later she became one of the Internet's first - and most popular - "lifecasters", inviting people around the world to watch her every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But it was a one-minute video about an itemized AT&T bill that gave Justine her first taste of viral success.
