I really enjoyed this book. I tore through the first few chapters, then slowed down a bit after several abrupt... endings... if you will. That said, it finished wonderfully. Howey's style is great, and I look forward to reading the follow-up books in the trilogy and future works. FYI: to those looking for Dust, PPL now has a single copy on the shelves, and you can find it by searching by Author: Hugh Howey.

So well-written. Very, very difficult to put down--and then very difficult to pick up again sometimes, because the situations are so tense, I'd get anxious about what was going to happen next! Nonetheless I tore through this. Can't say too much without spoiling it. Finely crafted, both very plot-driven and with intriguing characters who have more complexity to them than at first meets the eye. Read this!

Why can't I find the third of the trilogy here (Dust)? Can you please order it? It appears I'm not the only one looking for it. Thanks.

I too am disappointed that the Library does not have the third book of the trilogy (Dust) in its collection..

This is a trilogy and OPL doesn't seem to have the last book (Dust), which seems odd. At least it doesn't come up when I search, unless I'm missing something. It's strange that they only have two thirds of a trilogy.

Well developed characters are dispatched- "off with his head" and you don't realize it at first but later in the story your brain has to come to grips with the evil some people are capable of. Kept me up reading far in to the night.

Life in The Silo just didn't speak to me at all.

Although this book is getting rave reviews it didn't thrill me much.There was no depth to the story at all. It does have some action and suspense so if you enjoy postapocalyptic fiction you might really enjoy it. Plenty of other people have. Just not a good choice for me.
