Shift, by Hugh Howey

I really liked Wool. It was different than your typical dystopian science fiction. I loved Shift, which allowed us to dig deeper into how the Silos came to be. I’m a sucker for unique story structures when there is a purpose to them, and I thought the way this story jumped from before the Silos and to the various silos at different times was handled deftly. As with Wool, there was a momentum to this book that made it impossible to put down.

If you’re looking to just jump right back into where Wool left off, you may be a bit disappointed by Shift, but give it time and trust in Howey to get you where you need to go. Beginning with the story in Wool, then shifting (see what I did there) to this more divergent story that unravels the mystery from new perspectives and at earlier times was a great story telling choice. Shift is that much better having read Wool.

I would say I can’t wait to read Dust, but I stayed up late and nearly finished Dust last night. Rest assured, that review is coming soon.
