Sadly, this is not one of them!
Sure, it claims to be set in the Silo universe and there is the odd reference to it. However, this story could be set in a modern day New York apartment block. There are so many discrepancies with the Silo universe that I don't believe it ought to be considered one and the same.
If you want to get around in the Silo's you climb stairs. That is your only method of getting from one floor to the next but in this story, there are fully operational elevators.
If you want to communicate with someone on another level, you hand over chits to pay for a 'wire' or for a porter to carry the message. Communication is kept to a minimum which is a major part of the Silo world. In this story, if you want to communicate with someone, simply pick up your two way radio - everybody has one!
Writing notes is also an expensive way to pass messages because paper is a rare and expensive commodity and every spare millimetre on both sides is used. Not so in this story. Paper is used and discarded with wild abandon!
There is no mention of 'the outside'. If it wasn't for the fact that the book claims to be set in the Silo universe then it is unlikely that you would guess.
There are many other discrepancies but I won't bore you with more.
Now on to the story itself: Hugh Howey's Silo universe is perhaps a little far-fetched but it is entirely plausible. In this story we are expected to believe in fortune telling, visions of the future, astral projection and all sorts of other parapsychological nonsense!
If you are looking for a story that is set in a world where parapsychology is accepted as fact then you might enjoy this. It is reasonably well written, which is why it gets two stars. But if you are looking for another story set in Hugh Howey's Silo's, forget it, this is not the book you are looking for.
