History of the Silo- Some Secrets (& Books!!) Should Stay Buried

Shift Omnibus Edition (Silo, #2) (Wool, #6-8) - Hugh Howey

Oh gosh what to say about this book...I'm really just glad it's over. The first book, Wool, was so good that this was like a total letdown. It felt like a constant chore to read. I think what I didn't like the most about it was the way it flashed back through different years and different silos. There was just too much going on. All of the characters were very flat too. I just had no interest in any of them. It's a shame too because this could have been a good story but it just was not executed well at all. Howey was at the top of his game with Wool but he fell off it in this one. I'm going to read the last book, Dust, because I have to see how it ends but I'm going to cross my fingers it's nothing like this one.
