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)
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
Solo, couldn't wait to find out what happened to him
Very well spoken, excellent voice, enjoyed listen
As with 'Wool', I found the narration a bit flat. Now that's out of the way...I really loved this book and the trilogy as a whole; it's so inventive. The characters, situation and plot are believable, I was happy with the way the story ended and I was left wanting more, which for me, is usually a good sign that I've enjoyed a book. I reckon there are enough little loose ends to weave a bit more of the story - at least I hope so. Please.
I enjoy most genres of fiction but expecially crime fiction.
The whole Silo series has been brilliant, imaginative and compulsive reading. Dust did not disappoint as a conclusion. It is one of the best audiobooks I have 'read' for many years.
Dust compares well with other literary greats such as 1984 and Brave New World in the imaginative setting, just believable from current world trajectories. The writing is extremely well paced and gives just enough detail to engross the reader whilst moving the story along at a steady pace.
Obviously the final scenes were most satisfying if a little predictable. There is scope for more but honestly I think it would be best to finish there.
Suspenseful, sad, well-paced
Juliet. It's always good to see a strong, heroic female leading a cast of characters.
The final scenes
I am so pleased that Susannah Harker was back to read this final installment. (with all due respect to Peter Brooke) her reading of the first was beautiful and emotive and it was wonderful that she read this one. Fabulous.
