it was amazing
bookshelves: post-apocalyptic-dystopian, science-fiction, year-2013-read

Going in to Dust, I was hoping that it would continue at the same very high level of great story telling as the first two installments of the Wool trilogy and I have to say that it did. It was a very different book than I thought it would be and went in a direction that I never would have guessed, and for those reasons it really kept me riveted. I expected a dark mood to the book but it was even darker and depressing than I anticipated - there were very few happy moments, and the characters we grow to know and love were stressed, pressured, questioned, and in danger from all sides right from the beginning it seemed. There were twists and turns, and moments in which I was downright shocked. The plot moved along quickly, a little bit more so that in Shift. The stories of Silos 1,17, and 18 were tied together and all the mysteries therein were explained. After all the personal tragedy and sacrifice which we agonized over for 450 pages, I thought the ending was satisfying, and done just right. I can't recommend the Wool trilogy highly enough.

Jeff Just pre-ordered a signed copy directly from Hugh, can't wait. The first two-thirds of this trilogy were fantastic!
