Second Shift is not a stand alone novel, so if you're interested, please read "Wool" first (the omnibus version contain the 5 first books) and then read "first Shift" wich is the first book in the prequel trilogy to wool, but that you have to read after wool... ok that's a bit complicated, but just trust me, you want to experience those books the way they are meant to be read!

Mr Howey is a genius, his world building is incredible, the characters are most interesting, and the plot is always...WOW! I discovered the post-apocalyptic genre with the Wool series and I really enjoyed every book and "second shift" is as good as the others.

One more thing about Howey's books: do always read the credit,
1/ they are not boring and
2/ if you don't read them, then you'll miss the end of the book :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This talk of a better world. It just makes us hate this one! 10 février 2013
Par JJCEO - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Wool is a story that once you start reading it you cannot stop. Yes it is science fiction but it is so well written that it will captivate you and you will be so interested in the story that you have to continue on.

Mission Jones is a porter and it is his 17th birthday. His father was a farmer but Mission chose to not follow in his father's footsteps just as so many other children were choosing not to follow their parent's careers. It seemed to be a contagious trend. They were all looking for a better life than what they believed their parents were having. So sons and daughters, they left home to choose a new fate, a new and more promising destiny.

Mission was feeling a change in the air. As a porter he covered the entire silo in his journeys and he heard and carried all of the rumors and the things he saw. Suspicion, distrust and the walls being built between the trades were indications of the coming change. He wants to stop by his old school and see The Crow, his old school teacher, who was by far the oldest woman in the silo. She had taught so many children for generations and she still told the stories of the old world with blue sky, green grass, rainbows and freedom....

As usual Mr. Howey writes a story that you cannot put down. The characters are described in such depth and personality that you can relate to all of them. Hugh Howey is a wordsmith that makes his talent stand above almost all other authors today. I have purchased and read all of the books and I have loved every one of them. These last books tell of the beginning and why the silos exist and why the world ended. The story reminds me of an old saying, "Do unto others before they do unto you!" The story is about the ego of men that think that their culture and way of life is the one that must survive.

This is a five star book and I am now reading Wool Part 8. This is the best series of books that I have read in the last 5 years and I highly recommend them to you. It is a superb story that will captivate your interest. The only bad thing about each book is that you reach the end and it leaves you wanting more!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Second Shift --the series just got even better 4 décembre 2012
Par Joanna D. - Publié sur

This is the continuation of the prequel "First Shift" which followed the Wool series by Hugh Howey. The prequels show how the world of the silos developed and WHY. In this book, the movement between Silo One and Silo Eighteen is deftly handled, and existing characters like Donny are merged with some fantastic new people such as The Crow and of course, Mission. Mission is a porter, one of the messengers/delivery men who trudge up and down the spiral staircase of the Silo to deliver goods and messages. I really enjoyed learning more about their life and how they fit into the economy and politics of the Silo society, as porters were a key element of the first Wool books.

As usual, the world of the Silo has its unique customs, the economy based on each group doing their job and being interdependent, but the carefully crafted lifeboat society rocks...when individual aims and the desire to simply get ahead and be free interfere with the social order. This was much of what "Wool" was about, and we learn more about how the Silo culture developed.

This is a terrific sci-fi series, and one of the best installments to date.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great wool story! 3 décembre 2012

Still waiting for Hugh to get back to the main Wool storyline, but just as with First Shift, this book continues the awesome back story of why everyone is living in silos.

I don't think that is was quite as good as First Shift, but maybe that is just because First Shift answered so many questions that had been with me since Wool 2, whereas this is more of a continuation story (as opposed to back story).

Still another fantastic read in the grand tradition of Wool (and even has a bit of a surprise ending; don't miss it!)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Can't Wait for the Next Book in The Series to be Published 30 décembre 2012
Par C. Sydnor - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I rarely award a book with 5 stars -- this book is probably the most exciting book I've ever read. Like, parts 1- 6 it is almost impossible to put down. I did not discover Howey until Parts 1 - 5 were published as a set, so I had the satisfaction of reading a full length novel of more than 500 pages when I read the first five parts. I read parts 6 and 7 back to back -- each part a little over 200 pages. I am not so sure that I like the format of two very short novels. When I finished part 7, I felt frustrated because the book ended and left me hanging at the most exciting part in the entire series. I guess this is my biggest complaint because Howey does not need to resort to the cheap trick of leaving his reader hanging to get them to come back. His writing is excellent and he tells a great story -- his readers will come back. The first five parts published as a whole are complete, I was satisfied, yet I wanted to read more just because both the writing and story are amazing. I hope his next part/parts are longer and end leaving me satisfied as in Parts 1 -5; otherwise, one is left feeling like they are watching a television series having to tune in to find out what happens.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hugh Howey is beyond incredible. 15 janvier 2013
Par Just an accountant - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I saw one review where the reviewer commented he/she would pay a dollar to read Howey's grocery list. I think that sums up how I feel about Howey's writing style. I've read all seven books in this series. The back stories are beyond cool. So often, in end-of-the-world stuff, you don't get insight into the players' thought processes as they bring the world to an end as we know. Howey does this better than anyone I have read. I think Howey is going to do in the scifi history books with Bradbury and Asimov as one of the greatest ever.

I liked this series so much I purchased other titles from Howey. I thought Nameless Ridge was really great, but I read Half Way Home after Nameless Ridge and the Wool series before Second Shift. I was flat blown away by how good Half Way Home was.

He creates world out of his imagination (like the worlds in WOOL and Half Way Home) that sound unbelievable if someone tried to describe it to you. But after you read his stories, you not only find youself believing in his worlds, you start to wonder how likely it is that a world like that may happen one day.

This to me, more than any other measure, is the true meausre of great science fiction. Can the writer create a unique, fantastic world that would seem impossible in the hands of a mere mortal and actually turn it into something you believe (or worry) can really come about?

I believe Hugh Howey does this better than anyone I have read in more than 40 years of reading science fiction. One other note - find his website and look through the blogs and comments. He is part of this new generation of writers that really appreciates his/her reading public. I have never met him in person, but from his postings and responses, I would be surprised if is not the genuinely responsive and humble man he seems to be from his website.

His writing is a joy to read and his website is a pleasant reminder that there are authors who care about their readers.
