The third in a dystopian series about people living in silos began with Wool. Shift, the history came next and now this follows on directly from Wool only actually the writing style is much improved. It has good pace, became a page-turner and has a most satisfactory ending to the series. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and some get a bit lost. The story follows Juliette who is now mayor of Silo 18 and Lukas, head of IT. The builders of this world are in Silo 1. Here a fellow called Donny believes there is a chance of life outside their buried world and tries to explore. It is an interesting slant on dystopia for most literature relies on ordered societies breaking down and being built up again with more freedom, whereas this trilogy presents a society that functions reasonably and they’re fighting for their very survival. They face the choice of staying with what they know or leaping into the unknown and taking a chance. All most exciting.

If you like Hugh Howey you might also like to read books by Justin Cronin, Nick Harkaway and Juliana Baggott.

About the Author

Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first young adult novel, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue. The Molly Fyde series won rave reviews and praise from readers but it was the release of Wool that made his career take off. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
