Publisher Comments:

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. This is the sequel to the New York Times bestseller Wool.

Contains First Shift, Second Shift, and Third Shift.

Jeffrey Bluhm, November 23, 2014 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
I approached this trilogy (Wool, Shift, and Dust) with great anticipation, but I became increasingly disillusioned as the series progressed and, at the end, find myself moderately disappointed. The basic premise is interesting, as is the way the backstory is gradually revealed as the main plotlines advance. However, most of the major players, in addition to being somewhat unlikeable, are also rather superficially characterized. Half of the 2nd volume follows an teenager as he grows up isolated from contact with others, and in addition to just not being that interesting, it reveals the main weakness of these books: the seeming lack of an editor. The content of these three books would have made a very good single novel, and where the third leaves off would have made a good starting point for continuation of the story. In short, these three novels are one good one stretched too thin.
