    "Dust to dust - the end"

    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.

    "In the end - the truth"
    If you could sum up Dust in three words, what would they be?

    Uplifting, spellbinding, Inspirational.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    .


    Have you listened to any of Susannah Harker’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I missed Susannah reading book 2 (Shift) and was so pleased she was brought back for Dust. Very easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh the intrigue and deception and revelation. There are many high points so I won't post any spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Weakest of the trilogy"
    Would you listen to Dust again? Why?

    No, it was not a well written book, simply a means to end the trilogy


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    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


    What three words best describe Susannah Harker’s performance?

    Ok at best


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nope!


    Any additional comments?

    Only read to finish the trilogy

    "Well worth a listen"

    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.

    "The saga continues"
    What made the experience of listening to Dust the most enjoyable?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Dust to, and why?

    Novels by Michael Connolly and Ian rankin if you like following characters in books and series and see how they continue through life


    What does Susannah Harker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A VERY good narrative that brings the characters to life


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The next hunger games

    "I want more, please"

    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.

    "Fantastic conclusion to a compelling series"
    Where does Dust rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Dust to, and why?

    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.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    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.

    "A Fabulous and Well Read Ending"
    If you could sum up Dust in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, sad, well-paced


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Juliet. It's always good to see a strong, heroic female leading a cast of characters.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The final scenes


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both


    Any additional comments?

    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.
