"It's a dystopian gem." (

"Reviewers have compared his series to The Hunger Games ... but it's better written and more thought-provoking." (Guardian)

3.0 out of 5 stars fairly mundane conclusion 18 Mar 2014
By A. Gibb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ho hum 24 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is the third and Im disapointed 2 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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

4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid ending - but not quite spectacular 30 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trilogy I couldn't put down 30 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great conclusion to an amazing trilogy! 16 Aug 2014
By Bob S
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, if slightly cheesy, conclusion 8 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This final book in the trilogy brings all the threads together nicely and gives it all a happy ending. Perhaps a bit too happy and cheesy but it's hard to complain about that when you've come to love the characters. An insight into the dark heart of man? Maybe, but a bit lightweight really. Worth a read.

By Mike

If you've read Wool and Shift and are considering finishing up the story by reading this, then I'd say it's still worthwhile. But imagine the most obvious and predictable conclusion to the story based on what you've read so far. Odds are, you'll be pretty close to the mark. It feels like a rushed ending resolved largely through deus ex machina.

That been said, it's much better than most stuff out there!
