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

Susannah Barker is bored with this great story

Great finish to the series. I want more, just like I have done with all the other books.

Susannah Harker almost wrecks this audiobook, but fortunately the story shines through. I enjoyed Peter Brooke's voicing of the second instalment a hell of a lot more.

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.

Disturbing

Similar review to the other two parts:
This review probably applies to the complete trilogy, the story was well written, but I really didn't enjoy it. Most of the characters weren't 'full enough' to get to know them and like them. The situation was bizarre to say the least, but very disturbing in general. I wish I hadn't read this at all.

Ending felt a little rushed

Solid end to the trilogy, even if it was reasonably obvious where things were heading. Decently read.

Amazing insight

This story is amazing. The pace is great. The scene switching is well timed, and the concept is unique.

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.

Exciting and gripping!!

This trilogy starting with Shift, then Wool and now Dust is truly outstanding. I couldn't stop listening, and was wholly absorbed. Loved it.
This is the second time I've listened to them and it won't be the last. Highly recommended.

Dust - a fine conclusion to the trilogy

The story had to end somewhere, this was an admirable ending. After book two which was, I thought, the best of the three, we are reunited with Juliette and her silo for a thought provoking finale. I highly recommend this instalment.
This trilogy has been very well written, a hidden gem.
