Summary

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.

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

Just.... No

The first thing when reviewing Audible to consider is the narrator. 10/10 for me. I just wish she did the second book too as well as this and the first.

I LOVED the first book. HATED the second book. This did not recover it for me. I haven't checked this but it feels like same author throughout all three but a much better editor on the first.

The character work is awful. Because of the second book the world is no longer interesting. This book has ruined trilogies for me. Next time I'll check the last before I fall in love with the first.

An epic conclusion to one of the best book series!

This story picks up where Wool left off and intertwines everything from Shift. A very well written story with realistic characters and plot twist that hit like a gut punch. Honestly the best book series I've "experienced".

A great conclusion to the WOOL trilogy

Another great read from Hugh Howey. Better than SHIFT, more focused, yet not as engaging as the original that started it all. Perhaps this is just how it goes, given the scale of what's at stake in the world of WOOL. It's great, without doubt.

Listening to a book I read and love

You know what I love about this book series? I read it a number of years ago and I remember loving the book. The feeling of satisfaction as the story unfolds. I didn't, however, remember the story.
Being able to experience the story again, with the audio book performance was pure bliss. Thank you.

Best of the 3 books

I found book 2 hard to get through but this was a fitting end to the saga and the narrator for me was spot on, wish she had done the 2 book.

Brilliant

I couldn't put it down. The twists and turns are sometimes unexpected and even when the author knows you will figure it out, still manages to suprise. Definately worth it.

Perfect Sci Fi

Just uses the setting to open up a fantastic story and character driven plot which is gutting to get to the end of.

I didn't want it to end

I absolutely LOVED this book. A very mature dystopian text with so many plot twists and turns. I was in a constant state of shock the whole way through the trilogy. One of the best series I have ever read as it remains consistently good throughout.

I listened to this trilogy at the same time as my friend. I would strongly recommend this as you will be bursting to talk about it with someone.
