Review

"The final book secures the status of the Wool trilogy as a modern masterpiece" (Sunday Express)

"We’ve become obsessed with Hugh Howey’s silo story which is basically, and in fact has been called, the NEW Hunger Games. We can’t wait to sink our teeth into the final instalment." (Grazia Daily)

"It’s a dystopian gem." (macworld.com)

"Reviewers have compared his series to The Hunger Games ... but it’s better written and more thought-provoking." (Guardian) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

The much-anticipated final instalment of the Wool trilogy. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Reasonable conclusion to an at times excellent trilogy. It feels a little like Howey is just running out of steam by the end. A couple of neat little twists, but generally it's fairly predictable as the series ambles to a conclusion. Entertaining enough, but still I can't help feeling that some of the earlier promise has gone unfulfilled.

Reviewing the trilogy as whole, I was a bit disappointed really. Book 1 was good, which led me to book 2. Book 3 as the tie-in between the other two books just failed to excite me, leaving me indifferent about the whole series.

The only character I had any real sympathy for was Solo. The rest I just couldn't work up any enthusiasm for. All the male characters (even Solo sometimes) were extremely weak, apart from the inevitable baddy the Thaw Man.

As for the basic storyline (SPOILER) the old 'we thought the poison was on the outside but it's on the inside' is old I'm afraid; see Logan's Run, Amtrak Wars to name two off the top of my head.

There are so many things I could point my finger at and say 'that doesn't make sense' but I will spare you the moans. Plenty of people seem to like it so I will leave it at that.

"Dust" by Hugh Howey is the third part of Silo Trilogy, SF dystopian series in some way similar to the Hunger games series.

Therefore this novel should be looked as part of a whole, and certainly is recommended to read the first two parts of series before its read.
Its two prequels introduced readers to underground Silo where remained human survivors live, one safe shelter that is also sort of prison due to people inability to exit to the outer toxic world.

For those already familiar with story, in the aftermath of the uprising described in its prequels, the people of Silo 18 are learning to live with a new order. Some of them will accept the changes while others are in fear due to lack of control of their fate.
Although the battle has been won, the war for Silo is just beginning because it's still in danger and Jules who want it to destroy it have to be stopped...

As I already mentioned, this novel should be looked at as the part of the series. The series introduced nice and believable characters, and good tension that encourages the reader for further reading.
As both previously released novels, this SF dystopian piece is also well-written and exciting read that is easily read.

Although, "Dust", if viewed separately from the series, somehow lost some of series tension probably because of the characters who reached their development peak and nothing new can be learned about the fate of "lost" silos, or of their engineering in general, although reader can still enjoy in author's intriguing world.

The end could be also disappointment for some series' fans because this novel didn't completely concluded the story in same time leaving the possibility that one day this story will be continued...

I was a little disappointed in this book the third in the series, the others kept me gripped right the way through. This one felt like the author took the money and ran, in comparison to the others I felt the plot line was weak and went nowhere. This is not a stand alone book, you need to read the others first. I was so looking forward to it that I paid a lot for it, my advise wait for it to be in the sale

A highly readable conclusion to the trilogy, but it's obvious Howey was working himself hard to finish up: it doesn't flow with quite the surprising bits and alien-ness of the earlier books, part of whose joy came from experiencing the very truncated world of the silo dwellers through their eyes and emotional biases.

By this time we're heavily invested in the main character, and Howey doesn't have a choice in what she does, really - a different ending would've meant too many bad folk not getting their just desserts - but the book still works, and it's satisfying enough. Perhaps its most commendable point is how a "good" character ended up "bad" through no real fault of his own.. but continued being "bad" because of his investment in the system he was part of. Which, let's face it, is how a great many people go bad.

Overall, not quite as absorbing as Wool and Shift, but a good solid read and clearly into that 0.3% of Kindle novels (beyond the third Standard Deviation) that are worth more than the time you put into them.

No spoilers I promise. A brilliant journey, each book contains a story, not immediately nor easily identified as being interconnected, and many surprising twists occur. This isn't some cheap, leave the reader frustrated over every cliffhanger, never fully delivering story, but an enthralling path to see what will happen next. I particularly enjoy authors who use life's joys and despair, which has been used very effectively to give these books real value-not some fairy tale fantasy but a gritty book that looks at human nature. A new author to me, one I will be keen to follow.

Everything comes together nicely and coherently. As with the other two, it's well written and paced, with great characters coming towards the end of their epic journey. A real page turner and the only downside was that it ended, but as they say "all good things..." The Wool Trilogy has become my favourite series ever and I'll be looking forward to reading a few more of the author's books.
