The Silo Omnibus is a series of short stories which take place on a post apocalyptic Earth. The stories are split into a series of books. Wool consists of the first 5 stories, Shift contains the next 3 stories and Dust is the final part of the Silo saga.
I admit I wasn’t that impressed with this series at first. But that is mainly my own fault. I had picked up Shift as I needed something to read on the train, not realising it was the second book in a series. Shift tells some of the back story of how the Silos were created and I think this took away all the mystery and suspense when I did actually go back and read the first book.
By the time I got around to reading the final book I was really enjoying this series. The story is a little different from most other dystopian novels I’ve read. There is very little action and the story focuses more on the consequences of lying to people.
So yes I did actually enjoy these books. Though I wouldn’t say it was a “modern masterpiece” as the cover of Dust claims it to be.
