really liked it
bookshelves: dystopian-pa-zombies, submerged-buried

This was a nail-biter. It's like you're shivering because you know there's a hungry monster waiting under your bed for you to stick an arm or a leg out for it to eat, but you figure if you don't move or make noise until morning, it'll go away. But the next night, it starts all over again.

This was set before Wool Omnibus Edition
Each chapter went back and forth from pre-post apocalyse, to just before the events in Wool happened, then it met up where the Omnibus edition ended. So I expect the next installment will get back to the present...or future.

Donald is a newly-elected official working in Washington, D.C. who's been hired to work on a top secret project. He's only allowed to see the area he's working on, and not the project as a whole.

In the year 2100, Troy lives in a silo, and he's apparently in charge of the place, but every once in awhile, he gets the feeling he's forgetting something important -- a vital piece to the puzzle that's just on the tip of his tongue...
