Book Description WOOL introduced the silo and its inhabitants. SHIFT told the story of their making. DUST will chronicle their undoing. Welcome to the underground.

Reviews I didn’t intend to read DUST so fast. I announced on Facebook that I’d set aside an hour to start reading it and smoke a cigar. I figured I’d take my time, read for an hour, and then get back to work. That isn’t what happened. But first let me tell you that I entered into my foray into the finale of Hugh Howey’s enormously popular Silo Saga with some trepidation. I was afraid. Not for myself, but for Hugh… The excitement and hopes for this book would be enormous. Hugh is a friend of mine and I didn’t even want to tell him that regardless of how good and serviceable DUST was, I figured most people would be somewhat disappointed. It is the way of these things. Thousands upon thousands of readers had made the trek through WOOL and SHIFT and I couldn’t even imagine how Hugh was going to possibly meet the unrealistic expectations. In fact, I was prepared to accept the very real possibility that he could not.


Before I get too far into my review of DUST, let me say for those of you who want to get right to the nitty gritty, that Hugh not only met my highest expectations with DUST, but he smashed them to the ground, dropped the mic and walked away. I don’t say this as a fawning fanboy, even if that is what I am. DUST is better than I hoped it would be. Far better.

I read WOOL before I knew what all the fuss was about. I read it because I was studying indie publishing success, and I stumbled upon a book that had 1500 mostly glowing reviews (at that time) so I decided to see if it was as good as people were saying. I loved the book. I loved Hugh’s story even more. Then there was SHIFT…

Don't get me wrong... I liked SHIFT. I liked it a lot. I wrote a five star review for it. But I struggled with it because there were so many threads, and so many details, and so many plot points that I was concerned that there would never be a good way to tie the whole thing back up at the end. I gave SHIFT to my parents and my children and all of them said that they didn’t like it as much as WOOL. To me SHIFT was good, but not as good as I'd hoped. I’d had a bad experience with The Hunger Games because I’d really liked the first one, the second one was… meh, and I hated the third one. This is the fountainhead of my fear for DUST.

Let me tell you that DUST absolutely hits a home run. Every tangled plotline, every shocking conundrum, and every bewildering twist is handled deftly and expertly in DUST. Hugh hits the gas from page one and the story never lets up. It is a breath stealing juggernaut. Along the way, as you rocket forward through the fascinating story, answers – satisfying answers – hammer you and buffet you into submission. As always with Hugh Howey, the prose is beautiful and perfectly handled. There are no gaps, no head scratching questions, no dashed hopes.


I had planned to read for an hour. My family had to bring meals to my office, and I only put the book down to pace the floor. My heart raced. I was IN IT. The story is magnificent and hopeful, and it didn’t leave me with any disappointments… not even with the fact that it was over. When I closed the book, I just smiled.

Now, I am poised to watch the accolades roll in for Hugh. The official launch date for DUST is this Saturday, August 17th… in just a few days. The hordes will snatch up the book, and I can imagine those thousands of people turning to the first page and getting rocketed into one of the most satisfying reads they’ll ever experience.

Rest easy, Hugh. DUST is perfect. And it is a job well done.
