The Wool Trilogy- Book #3...

Dust - Hugh C. Howey

I fell in love with the first book in this series, Wool, when I read it. It's one of my all time favorites. Then I read the second book, Shift, and hated it. It was written in a different style then Wool and it contained a lot of flashbacks to older times which didn't do anything for me at all. I wouldn't recommend skipping Shift though because you do get a lot of the backstory which you need to know to fully appreciate the whole story. I was hoping though, that Dust wouldn't be anything like it and was written more like Wool and it was. : ) Yay! It started out where Wool left off so I took to it immediately and finished it the same day. What's really special about this series I think is the setting and the world building. How the society is structured within the Silos is just brilliant. I also really liked how Howey wrapped up the ending nice and neat so you weren't left with any cliffhangers or a thousand questions either. If you like dystopian books, then this series is a definite must-read!
