The Silo series feels like a more realistic version of Fallout (the video game). This conclusion to the trilogy wraps up enough storylines and plots that just about all questions are answered - which was somewhat satisfying, but felt it was missing the same sense of mystery as part 1. ( )
  adamfortuna | May 28, 2021 |
Dust is the final part of the trilogy that started with Wool and Shift. Now, all pieces of the puzzle should come together. Like the previous parts, this book is divided into parts, in this case 3: The Dig, Outside, and Home. The latter being the largest. My apologies for the spoilers, but then again, it's also for myself I'm writing this.

The Dig - Jules is thus mayor, but is more active below, trying to reach Silo 17 (Solo/Jimmy) than acting as mayor. Many people don't trust her anymore, not even her friends. Lukas (her boyfriend and head of IT) tries to keep her on track. But she's determined. They do reach Silo 17, so Jules was right. And it seems mr. Thurman wasn't dead after all (see Shift). This means that Donald and Charlotte (Donny's sister) are in deep trouble, when the truth is uncovered.

Outside - Donald's secret is uncovered, Thurman plans revenge, to set things right. Donald tells how he did it (how he fooled everyone by pretending to be Thurman, and act like nothing happened, how he also awoke his sister, etc.), finds out from Thurman how the servers contain info on everyone's being & doing. Juliette, meanwhile, went outside to take samples (soil, air, ...), sees contradictions with what silo 1 has always stated. Then all goes wrong. As Thurman tries to get back in power, he then ultimately decides to shut down silo 18. All flee to 17, yet many do go outside, thinking it's better (& die). Shirly, one of Jules's friends, sacrifices herself (so Jules can go on and lead the pack) and Lukas and many more to save the rest of the group from suffocation (gas). So the passage between silo 18 and 17 caves in, thanks to explosives.

Home - Yes, home. As everyone is now looking for shelter in silo 17, Jimmy/Solo and the kids are back home, despite efforts to give them a new home in silo 18 (Jules's plan). With so many people now, all seek food, behave like it's always been their silo, like they know/own the place and don't have to obey anyone. Not all support(ed) Jules as mayor. Still, silo 17 doesn't have the amount of power, water, food, tools and machinery that were available in silo 18.

Jules wants revenge for the damage that was done to her and her people. She threatens to come over to silo 1 and bomb the place. Charlotte, despite having killed someone as he discovered her, tries to remain hidden (again) to work on the drone, but also seek contact with silo 18 to tell what Donald had discovered and how he wanted to help silo 18 (and the others), yet was stuck to certain rules and procedures. Jules thinks of a plan to go bomb the place, as digging towards a new silo would take too long, without enough food, fuel, and other stuff. But upon seeing Jimmy and the kids - and after she successfully extinguished the fire on level 34 (where someone from the church community burned all the books - since the bible is the only "true" book - but at last got killed by Jules in the attempt) - her anger and rage decreases, makes way for a more peaceful solution. Saving her people.

Darcy discovers Charlotte, while she's talking to Jules over the radio. She manages to persuade him that she's working with Donald on a good cause, trying to uncover the truth, that the world outside is indeed only partially destroyed, that the silo system is a means to destroy the people, not save them. So Donald gets guided from the deepfreeze to continue working on the plans, while Darcy pretends (to his superiors) not to be aware of this. But Donald is sick, will die soon, and so he decides Charlotte should save herself (with the help of Darcy), despite her complaints. In the end, Donald does get his revenge.

---------------

Dust is actually quite easy to read, especially if you've read Wool and Shift. And you MUST have read those two in order to understand the events in Dust. The tension is high and it's hard to put the book down, once started. Luckily, sort of, the three books came out in quick succession, so that made the reading easier, without having to wait months and months to find out what would happen next.

The overall mood in the books is dark, depressing even. It shows that people, when deprived of freedom and privacy, having to live a controlled life, a life like an assembly line, can have their reflexes and minds made numb. They can lose respect for their fellow inhabitants, for the work of others. And then they withdraw into a new/own small community/group/... When in fact, all should join forces and look for a solution that benefits all. Especially when all are "trapped" in the same situation. But there's hope and light at the end of the tunnel. There will always be a few people who will stand up and revolt, in search of the truth, so people can be free again. And then more will follow.

This series also shows what the future may look like in terms of controlling a population (and fooling them, generation after generation) while people in charge make sure they remain in charge (for hundreds of years), of waging war, and so on. That train of thought aside, I can only heavily recommend this trilogy! ( )

A bit of an anticlimax after all that happened. Expected a bit more of a twist... ( )
  rendier | Dec 20, 2020 |
El principio es lento, el medio esta muy interesante y el final es un poco flojo.
En general mucho mas flojo que Wool.
Los personajes tampoco estan demasiado definidos. Lukas, Nelson, Ralph, todos me parecen mas o menos.

Creo que es un libro que simplemente sigue con las lineas de los demas libros sin dar ningun cambio realmente interesante.

Por otro lado, el mundo sigue estando muy buen definido. Aunque no parece que crezca con respecto a Wool. ( )

A satisfying end to an excellent series. ( )
