really liked it

If you enjoy post-apocalyptic or dystopian society fiction, this is your read of the year.

The individual 'books' are really more like short stories, that combine into one novel when read back to back. I would reccommend getting the omnibus because you wont want to stop between 'books.'

This is one of those stories that gets stuck in your head. I don't want to say too much about it because almost anything is a spoiler. But lets call it a society of people living underground in a sort of enormous self-sustaining bunker, who have been there for generations and they don't really know why, how long its been, or for how long they must stay. Their only link to the toxic aboveground world are cameras and sensors, which anyone who questions their fate too much is sent outside to clean. Sent outside, and never allowed back in.

I know it's cliche, but really... not everything is as it seems.
