Creative, compelling and intriguing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you prefer traditional Sci-Fi to fantasy, I recommend this book. The story is original and combines Sci-Fi with a bit of murder mystery while building out the plot and characters pretty well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dust?

The passing of the Mayor and then the cleaning of the Sheriff was very emotional even though somewhat predictable. The sheriff appeared to be smarter than this.

Have you listened to any of Tim Gerard Reynolds’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

My first Tim Gerard Reynolds listen. He is very good.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Surviving without knowing it!

Great Writer, But Buries Story In Endless Tangents

As great as the concepts were and as detailed as the characters are, for me there's far too much that is not interesting. The story slogs on endlessly with depressing issue after issue, needlessly. Within any section, the writing is very detailed and visual, but sooo much is unnecessary, is depressing, and ends up boring. The first quarter of Wool took me 3 times listening to be able to pay attention to enough to feel to continue. Shift was almost entirely a repititious depressing slog where I kept wanting to quit, then I kept wanting it to end soon. Dust pulled it all together with some close to great moments, but the once again depressing choices by the author minimized how much I could care. Yet the author writes excellently all the way through.

I just wish he would flow positive as well as he can flow negative, he'd be a pleasure and a joy to read. I saw no reason for the characters to lack basic instinct driven human ups and downs, instead always being down and almost always failing.

Wonderful user of words, great basic story, needlessly overly sad and repeatedly boring execution.

Great narrator, fully engagec, but unfortunately I felt to mark narration down because there seemed no effort at all to distinguish the various characters with southern accents, and they were the main characters.

Immaculate.

this series has been one of the best I've read (listened to) in ages. Hugh Howey, you, sir, are an inspiration. The narrator captured the essence of the novels perfectly.

It could all so easily have gone wrong

Juliette of Silo 18 succeeds in uncovering the digger she learned about from the silo schematics and having her people dig through to Silo 17 to rescue the people she found there. Things are looking up.

On the other hand, things start to go wrong again in Silo 1 when Senator Thurman comes back, almost literally, from the dead and finds out what has been going on.

In this final installment of the Silo Saga, Silo 18 falls, and the only reason any of its people survive is the connection they have just made to Silo 17. But after a very few days, it becomes obvious that trying to make a real life in Silo 17 with the few people they have left will be next to impossible. Juliet proposes another bold move.

Meanwhile, Donald and Charlotte, having flown a drone far enough outside the area of the silos to see green grass and blue sky, are hard at work on a plan to bring down Silo 1 so that the other silos will have a chance to survive without the meddling people and computers of Silo 1. It’s a race to the finish as to who will survive and who will be destroyed.

An excellent conclusion to an excellent series. It could all so easily have gone wrong...
