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.

Definitely a better book than the second one (possibly the best of the trilogy). A good amount of action and drama between Silo 18/17 and Silo 1. A bit violent at times and I wish they didn't kill as many of the major characters off. We find out the answers to many of the big questions. The characters are identifiable and well developed. A good recommendation for anyone that likes post-apocalyptic environments.
