Rex Agreed - Silo 1 could be suffering a nuclear meltdown for all we know - putting the few survivors at GREATER risk (and only 100+ survive the Silo 18 to Silo 17 to "Woods" escape; much LESS than the horrible "Pact" that only allowed a single Silo of 4,000 to survive. So - will the other Silos be freed also; who knows?

Liz I agree a twist would have been nice. I guess this leaves it open to another book though, going to rescue other silos

Phil Allender nothing the reviewers say makes me even the least interested in reading this book

David Homer Yes agree.. I am so confused

1. If the drones were attacked by the "Dust" why do the suits survive?

2. If the suits already existed in IT why did IT have to "make" them, were they downgrading the suits with the substandard tape etc ready for the cleanings? If so then why were there enough suits in IT for the cleanings surely if they were made for cleanings then why not just make them substandard in the first place?

3. Why was the purpose of the cleanings to "Pollute the world"? Why not just vent the dust around the silos anyway?

4. If the rest of the world was fine already why keep people in the silos with the dust cloud around them?

Thomas My take on David's points...
2. In my opinion this gives IT a reason to work and improve (or at least look like they are), while "excusing" the cleanings not only because of the better view, but also the hope that this time progress would show and the cleaner might survive longer.

3. Maybe an alternative to the digging (to go to The Seed), where a more reasonable society would stop cleaning, hence reducing the cloud overtime.

4. To grow a better human, with most of the "bad" parts erased by time and The Legacy to teach them the "not so bad parts".
