I have read thru the whole series and am now on book #9 Dust. It's a great series, although a little depressing at times. I've heard it could possibly become a movie.

Just finished a few weeks ago. It was good. Read it in one fell swoop all night.
Looks very similar to the film coming out called "THE COLONY". Silos, ppl conflicts, etc...but the larger details are different such as the motivations for having the silos and the final outcome, etc.

I've read them all except for Dust. I actually thought I had read it but I have not. It's up next after I finish We Need To Talk About Kevin.

Hugh Howey really found his calling when he wrote his first fiction book in this post apocalypse series. He has been such a success that another writer of this genre wrote a book titled "Hugh Howey Must Die." I suspect they are buddies now.

I finished Dust this weekend and had previously read Wool and Shift. I really enjoyed Wool. It has a great "hook" and pace. The environment is evocative and interesting, and the characters are memorable. Shift seems a little less focused but begins the process of answering a lot of the mysteries in Wool. Dust finishes the story in a satisfying way. It seems as though he had the entire story imagined before he started. I was worried when I first heard about these stories that they would seem disjointed or feel like he was obviously making it up as he went along, but I didn't find it to be like that at all. Among the readers I know, seems that even people who don't normally enjoy sci-fi really liked Wool.
