I simply love the series and waiting impatiently for "Dust"
I would certainly recommend the whole lot.
Can't Hugh Howey speed up a bit?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Third and Final Shift 2 février 2013
Par Berri - Publié sur

Last year when I began reading Wool and The Shift Series I never realized the incredible journey I would go on. I never thought one story could surpass another one in quality, but they did. After completing Third Shift, I thought how is it possible for Mr. Howey to continue to out do the book before. I realize that they are equal in quality, and it's the story as a whole. The need to know what is coming next. In Third Shift, Mr. Howey has delivered on his promise to bring Donald' s, Jule' s and Solo' s timeline together. Like a beautifully crafted quilt, all the pieces fit perfectly and seamlessly. Of course, I could not expect anything else. Hugh Howey never lets us down. I read a few reviews that have questioned the Shift Series. Even though I wanted to know what happened to the character's at the end of Wool, I also had to know why the world got to this place. I could not accept that people now lived in Silos and no longer ventured outside. I Had to know Why. Mr. Howey delivers the How's and Why's. I can not wait for the Dust Series that follow. Dear Reader, please start with Wool Omnibus, and follow with The Shift Series. This is so much more than a fantasy, sci-fi novel. They are about life, death, love, family, relationships, survival, power, control, integrity, and truth in a world not so different than our own. Thanks Hugh!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I know you see these silos as starships taking people to a better world, but why all the heartache, why all of the lies? 12 février 2013

Donald Keene has been brought out of his sleep again. His first coherent thought was why? He never expected to ever be awoken again after what he admitted to the last time he was on a shift. Oddly enough everyone was calling him Mr. Thurman, The Man, and not by his real name. He finds himself in charge of all of the silos and in absolute power and it is all based on a lie.

He finds a hidden message that is titled "Urgent - The Pact" and it has a number on the message that he doesn't recognize. He has decided to use the powers he has to find out what the Pact is and what the plan behind the silos really is. Every part of the plan he peals back is like the layers of an onion and they all contain the sting of a lie. Donald realizes that whoever is in charge controls the fates of all of the people living in the silos. Now he has to decide if he is the judge, jury, executioner or the savior!

Whenever a writer puts their thoughts to paper they hope that they write something special that others will love to read, listen to and relish. Mr. Howey continues to prove that he has become one of those special writers that created a masterpiece. I find his books to be so captivating that I cannot put them down until I have finished them. His work on Wool is about the struggle of life for the survivors of the human race and about how they still don't have any freedom. His character development is spectacular and that is what I enjoy. I find myself rooting for the characters, feeling sorry for them and wishing that they live or die.

The story is about the powerful doing whatever they want and about the average person being a victim and at the mercy of those who think they have the plan for the world within their grasp and control. When powerful men find themselves at the helm of the destiny of mankind, we can only hope that they are not evil men.

This is an excellent book and series. I have read all of the stories and I recommend them to you as the best books I have read in 10 years.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 not the best of the bunch but still good 27 février 2013

HH is still a top tier author in this book but this book was not as interesting as the previous Silo books. I will try to generalize so as not to spoiler here but it's basically about two people. One who is going mad, the other who has the mind of a 12 yr old. It's a little hard to maintain an interest level following these two. Book started well, then by about 50% I started losing interest and wandering. toward the end it picked up but the book felt like filler. Still, well written as always - I wish I could write a 10th as good. Mind you, the worst HH book is still going to be one of your better books available at this price point and in this genre. I would still recommend this book. I think others will not have the issues i had so let's chalk it up to personal tastes and no fault of the author.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Who's gonna clean all that shift out of silo 17? 10 février 2013
Par Steve - Publié sur

I just finished reading Third Shift and the epilogue has me stoked. I can't wait for the next installment! As far as 3rd shift goes, I liked it nearly as much as 1st shift and 2nd shift but not nearly as much as I liked the Wool Omnibus. Like some of the others reviewers, I felt that the Jimmy/Solo storyline was a bit lacking. The silo 17 parts and Jimmy/Solo didn't move the plot forward anywhere near as much as he moved his bowels. He didn't seem to have a purpose other than eating, hiding and searching for batteries and a can opener. I think it took him over ten years to find the can opener. Another thing that kind of bugged me was the titles between the chapters was off at times. The first title was Silo 18 hour one and was part of the Silo 17 story line. At other times, it says what year of Silo 17 we are supposed to be in- as marked by Jimmy's ordeal. Yet the events don't always seem to fit. Anyhow, if you like this Silo stuff as much as I do, you won't regret reading it. 3/5.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the better authors of our time. 14 juillet 2013

I downloaded the first story entitled, quite simply, 'WOOL'. It was free and had an enormous number of positive reviews, so I figured; what the heck? And since it was less than a hundred pages long, I could work the story into my hectic day. I need a bit of comic relief, or escape as I can get on most days working in the trenches, sort of speak.

Well, that short story/novella, I cared not for. The ending seemed less than I expected but then, what more could I expect for free? Except for the problem that I could not get this story out of my head. I had to analyze the story for the plot and the plot was strong. So strong that, I found myself searching the Kindle Store for Hugh Howie's sequel to this book. That is when I found the next five omnibus edition and then this one that I am reviewing right now, Third Shift. By then, I had passed the first novella 'WOOL' to a friend who doesn't like to read but read it because I encouraged him to do so, knowing him as an analytical and deep thinker of thoughts ;) So guess what?

At the end of the day, he came over to my work area and threw the book at me. Literally! He told me he was livid (he used a different expletive than livid, but you get the picture.) Then, by the next day, after he cooled down, he wanted to discuss 'WOOL'. I found he was hooked like I was when he told me he grabbed his granddaughter's kindle and loaded the entire series on it!

This man doesn't read, but he does now! So I suppose that is the best way to describe this author's work. He is a master storyteller and knows how to manipulate the reader's mind and expectations to provide a masterfully fine plot full of dreadful events that could very well, come to pass.
