2.0 étoiles sur 5 Une suite décevante de "Wool" 1 janvier 2014
Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Format:Format Kindle
"Shift" est la suite du retentissant "Wool", narrant l'histoire d'un futur ou un groupe d'humains seraient enfermés dans des silos enfouis sous terre, pendant que la surface était inhabitable.

Dans "Shift" nous suivons les événements à partir du Silo 1, celui donnant les ordres à suivre aux autres chefs de Silo. Et... C'est très décevant. Il y a de nombreux flashbacks expliquant l'origine des Silos et narrant leur construction, pas crédibles. Et il y a l'histoire présente. Entre les passages narrant à nouveau la vie de Jimmy et celle de Juliet, peu d'éléments nouveaux entrent en scène. C'est beaucoup de verbiage pour expliquer laborieusement l'errement de quelques politiciens et savants se prenant pour Dieu. Et quelques personnages (Anna...) sont franchement ratés. Finalement, c'était mieux de garder le mystère sur l'origine et la construction des silos.

"Dust", qui donne une conclusion à l'histoire, avec la communication entre le silo 18 et le silo 1, et les actions héroïques entreprises en parallèle, a le mérite d'apporter un point final possible, ce qui est assez rare dans les séries. Même si la conclusion elle est aussi peu crédible, cela fait du bien de clôturer la série avec une note positive. Cependant là aussi on reste très loin du niveau du premier tome...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice prequel to Wool 2 janvier 2014

Like always: impossible to stop reading once started. A dip dig into human nature and the grey borders between infinite good and infinite evil.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Low rythm, absolute stupidity of characters 10 novembre 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
What to say? The initial idea, a mad attempt to save mankind through some kind of ark, is not new (was old by Noah's time...). The way imagined here and supposedly undetected is plain gross, character behavior absurd, relying on cretinic design.
Even the book's rhythm is not sustained.
Highly forgettable and avoidable reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish MY Shift lasted so long! 22 mars 2013
Par D. J. Gelner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Immediately after finishing the Wool series, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Hugh Howey had finished Third Shift, which meant that Shift Omnibus was complete, and I could dive right into it.

Shift provides some much-needed backstory for the Wool books, namely who designed the Silos, why, and most importantly, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? (Sort of...more on that later...).

Hugh manages to do it all with his usual engrossing style. Dare I say I'm pleased to be able to see his evolution as a writer through the entire series; as well-written as all of the Wool books were from the start, I think in Shift he takes his craft to a whole different level.

I might disagree with a couple of characters' motivations toward the end of the book, but they make sense logically--if anything, I'm transposing what I would do in those situations without putting myself in that person's shoes. In other words, I was reading lazily.

I have to admit, though, I woke up this morning having completed 80% of it, thinking that I would read a little and be off to writing.

I finished the remaining 20% in a single sitting.

It leaves an opening for Dust, which I assume will be the thrilling finale. Just what exactly lies beyond the Silos (pun intended)? And though the ostensible motive for constructing the silos has been revealed, something tells me our crafty author isn't showing us all the cards just yet...

So be warned: if you have a job where face time is valued and reading is frowned upon, wait until the weekend to pickup the Wool and Shift books.

But if you like well-paced writing, gobs of suspense, fleshed-out characters, and a fearless author, I'd highly recommend starting with Wool I and seeing where it takes you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Big step down from Wool 8 août 2013
Par KVB99 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Shift Omnibus consists of 3 novellas that comprise a prequel off sorts to Wool. It's not entirely a prequel because the story overlaps Wool and essentially ends at the same place that Wool does. Shift has three primary story arcs: (1) A 40-ish man Donald, who is involved in the design and building of the silos and who (through the miracle of cryogenics) hangs around in the story for a few hundred years, (2) a boy name Mission Jones, who is central to the big uprising in silo 18 in the generations before the events of Wool, and (3) Solo, the guy in Wool who lives 30+ years alone in silo 17 after its collapse--the one who Jules meets. In Wool, we learned that we built the silos and then deliberately destroyed the entire world. One of the main purposes of this prequel is to explain why we did this. The "we" in this case ends up being a small cabal of persons. The Donald story arc explains the building of the silos and tries to explain why any rational person would destroy the world and then hide a remnant of people in silos. This story arc also explains what the ultimate purpose or plan is regarding the silos. Of these three story arcs, only the Mission Jones story approaches the same magic as Wool. Overall the characters and story lines in Shift are decidedly less engaging and compelling than in Wool. The big explanation for the destruction of the world is not entirely convincing and plausible, and the big reveal at the end about the true purpose of the silos really sounded ridiculous and nonsensical, despite the author's earnest efforts to make it all add up. And then there's the Solo storyline. If a person lived alone for 30+ years with not much to do, you'd think there wouldn't be much of a good story to tell...and there's not. The Solo story I found deadly dull. There may be some grander purpose for making us endure 30 years of Solo, to be revealed in Dust, but it'll have to be pretty spectacular for me to accept the tedium of Solo in Shift. In summary, I came into Shift knowing it was a prequel and as such not expecting the same magic as Wool--few prequels live up to the main story, but I thought this prequel was a little worse than what you might normally expect. I will read the third omnibus, Dust, in hopes that the story can get back on track. What made Wool above average was not only the strange silo world, but the great characters (e.g., Jules, Lucas) . Shift doesn't have any characters that come close to Jules and Lucas unfortunately.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just Gets Better 11 février 2013
Par Michael Bunker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
In my opinion, Third Shift was the best of the Shift series and it really made me look forward to the DUST series. Without giving anything away, This book really made me think of Robinson Crusoe... and it stands as literature in its own right. It is fine if people want to read the books just for the story, but I appreciate the craft involved in it, and there is mastery at work in Third Shift that goes way beyond the story line. Of course, by the time we get to Third Shift, there is no need to convince people to buy the book. If you've gotten this far, you ARE going to buy the books as they come out, but I just wanted to congratulate Hugh on a job well done. It is not common that an author expends so much energy crafting a work that is so far along in the series, and I appreciate that the books have gotten better and better throughout the whole SILO experience. Thanks again,

Michael Bunker

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing story, amazing writer 5 février 2013

I bought every book as they came out. This is a great series, and my favorite sci-fi read of the past 4 or 5 years at least. If you like reading at all you should buy this book. There is so much to love about it. The characters are clear, the dialogue is incredible, and the descriptive aspects are wonderfully detailed while not being overly verbose.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing After "Wool" 15 août 2013
Par Jeff Benson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is the first book that actually made me slam my Kindle down in frustration when I reached the end. (And I love my Kindle!)

I liked learning more about the backstory of the events behind "Wool," but found this book slow-moving and unnecessarily depressing. The entire section concerning "Jimmy" was tedious and frustrating and unnecessary. I disliked Donald's motives and actions near the very end. I know that certain angst is being cultivated in readiness for a third volume, but that doesn't mean that the experience of reading the middle portion has to be so unsatisfying.
