In the aftermath of the uprising, the people of Silo 18 are coming to terms with a new order. Some embrace the change, others fear the unknown; none have control of their fate. The Silo is still in danger. There are those set on its destruction. Jules knows they must be stopped. The battle has been won. The war is just beginning.

The much-anticipated final instalment of the Wool trilogy. The next Hunger Games (The Sunday Times)
Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World (Daily Express)
For reasons I still haven't worked out I ended up reading ( listening) to the Wool trilogy in reverse order, stupid I know but despite this I really enjoyed them! The descriptions of the silo and it's never ending stairwells, generator halls and server rooms are superb and if you have ever worked in a power plant or other process industry then it will put you right back there on the checker plate in the dirt, heat and noise of the place. Without a zombie in sight these books have all the drama and suspense you could want, with strong characters and a great story line - recommended
Loving my audible books which have allowed me to take up my love of reading again!!!
So sad to see the end of this excellent trilogy, a well rounded and hopeful completion to such an innovative story line. Fully recommend it
This series was fantastic in its ideas, writing and story progression. I would recommend it. I found Hugh Howey to have a fantastic perception of human actions and thought processes. I really urge you to read it!

The final part by Hugh Howey is a great ending to the Silo Series. It joins the first two books together even more while providing momentum with the main story.
The story proceeds at a good pace and while some of the situations have been encountered before, the outcome is a little different this time around.
The ending was exactly what i was expecting and wanting. While not radical, it did end the series well. It could also set up more books/short stories in the future.
I really enjoy the approach of smaller, self contained books put together. Wool was an eye opener. Dust lacked this a little, but it did not bother me too much.
I listened to the Audio book. Susannah Harker narrated the book again (she also did Wool). While I would have liked a little more variance in the voices of the characters, she did a good enough job for me.
I look forward to Howeys next series.
Back to pace and suspense of Wool I really enjoyed Dust picking up where Wool left me in the silo and I was absorbed again! It ended all too soon.
Susannah Harker is perfect and as with Wool continued her exceptional narration and great characterization.
Uplifting, spellbinding, Inspirational.
I missed Susannah reading book 2 (Shift) and was so pleased she was brought back for Dust. Very easy to listen to.
Oh the intrigue and deception and revelation. There are many high points so I won't post any spoilers.
Dust is the logical conclusion of a trilogy that I just took a 'punt' on. What a great punt that was. I was devastated to hear 'This was an Audible production....' No more Wool Trilogy.
No, it was not a well written book, simply a means to end the trilogy
The story did not hold up to expectation and was simply a means to conclude the trilogy story. On its own not great, as a book end, it was ok
Ok at best
Only read to finish the trilogy
A really good conclusion to the series. Well worth a listen, even if you think the second book gave you enough of the answers - this clears it all up and has a good storyline.
I love listening to books and enjoy a great listening experience. I listen to a huge amount of books and love it!
I have listened to the first 2 books in this series in the last couple months and to find out a third was due to be released was very exciting! This book holds up to the first 2 as you travel on a journey with Jules as she struggles to lead her Shiloh and do what is right, not what is popular! I listened to this book in 4 days it was very good! I got to one very important part with a main child character and had to stop it and decide do I want to continue or was it time to stop as the uncertainty of what could happen was so great! It was like a Hitchcock book nothing was said bad it was just the insinuation that bad things could be said in the near future! I sincerely hope the journey doesn't end here as it is left open for a 4th book!
Novels by Michael Connolly and Ian rankin if you like following characters in books and series and see how they continue through life
A VERY good narrative that brings the characters to life
The next hunger games
