Hugh Howey’s SHIFT

Shift is as mind-blowing as Wool, maybe more so. I am totally amazed that the world Howey has created, which is so confined within a Silo, can have so many stories and is bursting with so many ideas. Howey slowly marries up the stories of Wool and Shift perfectly and leaves you itching to read the conclusion, Dust. The wool is well and truly lifted from our eyes but what this means for the survivors in the Silos is far from clear and I cannot wait to find out.

I originally reviewed Shift in it’s three parts which you can find here:

  1. First Shift: Legacy

  2. Second Shift: Order

  3. Third Shift: Pact
