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.

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.

A quick, enthralling read. I finished in one sitting and was left wanting more. Despite its short length of 50 pages, the story was very well developed, instantly captivating its audience. A very emotional and thought provoking novella, can't wait to read the rest of this series.
