Meet the Author

Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first adult novel, Wool, which won rave reviews and praise from readers. Dust is the final part of the trilogy. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

    Superb!!!

    Oh my word...Just spent a captivating weekend in the world of DUST! This book is "deep" in more ways than one. I loved it! Lots of emotions and thoughts. Thanks Hugh Howey! This was awesome and so are you!

    ...and every end is a new beginning

    This book does do a good job of wrapping up the Silo Saga, ting up all the loose ends. One thing that seems a little unclear is exactly what is wrong with the outside, in WOOL it's implied that it's toxic chemicals, in SHIFT it's implied that it's actually nanotech, in this book it may be both. It seems clear that Hugh Howey either isn't sure himself or he wants to keep the reader guessing. It may seem like a small detail, but it's actually quite definitive as it defines the options for escape. There are moments where things get too convenient, like when the digger just happens to be on the other side of the wall that Jules digs through. Of all the places where Jules could dig, she just happened to pick the exact floor on the exact side where the digger was waiting. This coincidence, as well as 17 being the one silo that received nanites that repaired damage instead of causing it seems like too much. But then, over the course of the three books, the amount of coincidence between silos 17 and 18 just seem too much. Then there's Silo 40, which is mentioned as if it was important, and yet, when all is said and done, Hugh Howey has clearly left Silo 40 as Kindle World fodder. Despite these plot holes, the main story of Jules, Solo, Donald, Charlotte and Thurman does get wrapped quite nicely, mostly a happy ending despite how depressing most of the story has been. If you enjoyed the previous installments, definitely read this book to find out how it all ends, it's definitely a satisfying conclusion.

    Fantastic Read!

    I don't usually go for these type books (sci-fi, futuristic, etc.), but I kept seeing good reviews on this trilogy so I got Wool and started to read it. Before I was half-way through, I had ordered the second two volumes and was praying they would arrive by the time I finished the first one. LOVED them! Couldn't put them down. What a weird concept and riveting story! I was a little let down by this last one, but I think it was mainly because there was no more. :(

    Highly recommended

    Dust is the last in the series starting with Shift and Wool. A very fine trilogy, good character development and good plots. I liken them to Asimov's writings. I read Wool first, then immediately followed by Shft and Dust. A great SF read. In the same class as Asimov and Herbert.

    View of what's to come? Good read

    Brings characters in Book 1(Wool) together with characters in Book 2 (Shift) to provide a final resolution to a government project gone bad. Makes you view snooping by the NSA as small potatoes. This falls into science fiction territory. I suggest reading the books in sequence or you will be lost.

    I cannot thank my sister enough for turning me onto Hugh Howey and the Silo series. It didn't matter that I started in the middle with WOOL, went backward to SHIFT, now finishing up with DUST.
    This book moves fast and I didn't want to stop reading nor did I want it to end, though I knew it had to.
    Power corrupts, people are going to try to make the best of a situation if it's in them to try, good versus evil....it's all there.
    Thus ends one of my favorite trilogies and I am so very glad that I have this on my Nook since I know I will re-read these.

    A Must Read if you read Wool and Shift!

    The Silo series was a very compelling story. Dust is the last in the series and answers so many questions that arose from the first two books. This was my first time reading Hugh Howey and I thoroughly enjoyed his writing style. His characters are well defined and very believable. I highly recommend this series.

    Fantastic, as Alway

    Dust is a wonderful book and I could ask no better end to such a fantastic series. I am glad that while the ending is happy, it is not one that is "entirely" happy. There is loss for the gain they ended up with. I should expect no less from the Wool series. Keep it up, Hugh.

    Dust is the third and final volume of the Silo series by America

    Dust is the third and final volume of the Silo series by American author, Hugh Howey. Three narrative strands describe events in each of Silos 18, 17 and 1, starting just after Juliette Nichols is elected Mayor of Silo 18. Juliette’s priorities, far from her Mayoral duties, include tunnelling to Silo 17 and going Outside again for some investigative work, both of which provoke nervousness and fear in the Silo, rather than the hope they had experienced on her return, leading many to turn to the congregation of Father Wendel and his Acolyte Emmy; IT boss Lukas is in daily radio contact with Donald in Silo 1, trying to discover more about the world before; Jimmy Parker and the kids await Jules’ promised return to Silo 17 with mixed emotions; Donald, still posing as Thurman, tries to find a way to help Silo 18 in an attempt to atone for his role in the Silo scheme, while his sister, Charlotte is busy modifying drones to seek out an uncontaminated place. Just when the reader believes all the shocking measures instituted by the architects of the Silo scheme are known (the Cleaning with its the deliberately faulty suits, the Population Control, the destruction of Silos in revolt, the isolation from other Silos), Jules uncovers yet another indicator of their ruthlessness that will leave the reader gasping. Once again, Howey gives the reader an interesting plot with several twists, plenty of suspense and an exciting climax (or two or three). His characters are complex and compelling and their assessment of their situation is often relevant in the greater world. Donald muses that “Mankind had the right to go extinct. That’s what life did: it went extinct. It made room for the next in line. But individual men had often railed against the natural order” and he is told by Thurman “…the most difficult task mankind ever tried to master – and that we never quite managed – was how to pass supreme power from one hand to the next”. Donald finally tells Charlotte “Maybe the kinds of people who try to shape the world feel like they’re smarter than chaos itself”. This gripping page-turner may be the last of the series, but readers would very likely welcome a further update on the world Howey has created. Another excellent read.

    Good Ending

    Attended Hugh Howey's book talk at the Savannah Book Festival. Had read Wool, so I went to hear him. I was impressed. He talked about his life and it was interesting. He talked about writing and he made good points. He was sincere and intelligent and answered questions the way a good neighbor would. Hope he keeps writing. Dust is a satisfying conclusion to the silo series.

    Satifying End

    Thank you, Hugh Howey! I loved the Wool trilogy and the last book, Dust, did not disappoint. Not only was this a great story, the main character was a female engineer. Yes!

    To respond to "Hidariude." Please reread First Shift.

    To respond to "Hidariude." Please reread First Shift. Pay particular attention to when Silo 12 falls apart, Compare to when anyone goes out for Cleaning. The Argon gas, the nanos are in the gas.

    It was every bit as good as I had come to expect from the first two collections, which is very good indeed.

    I positively loved Wool, the first book in this trilogy. Shift, book 2 left me disappointed. Dust, the third book, I just stopped reading 80% into the book. Wool was laser focused on a small set of characters and a single silo, but the books that came after went too far astray. I was so happy when I found this universe, but was so severely disappointed by how it turned out.
