In the aftermath of the uprising, the people of Silo 18 are coming to terms with a new order. Some embrace the change, others fear the unknown; none have control of their fate. The Silo is still in danger. There are those set on its destruction. Jules knows they must be stopped. The battle has been won. The war is just beginning.

The much-anticipated final instalment of the Wool trilogy. The next Hunger Games (The Sunday Times)
Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World (Daily Express)
"Weakest of the trilogy"
No, it was not a well written book, simply a means to end the trilogy
The story did not hold up to expectation and was simply a means to conclude the trilogy story. On its own not great, as a book end, it was ok
Ok at best
Only read to finish the trilogy
"Great story - gripping"
Great story and great finish. Only minor irritation is that the reader changed between book 2 and 3, many of the same characters read by different people put me off a little!
"Exciting and gripping!!"
This trilogy starting with Shift, then Wool and now Dust is truly outstanding. I couldn't stop listening, and was wholly absorbed. Loved it.
This is the second time I've listened to them and it won't be the last. Highly recommended.
"Dust - a fine conclusion to the trilogy"
The story had to end somewhere, this was an admirable ending. After book two which was, I thought, the best of the three, we are reunited with Juliette and her silo for a thought provoking finale. I highly recommend this instalment.
This trilogy has been very well written, a hidden gem.
"Susannah Barker is bored with this great story"
Great finish to the series. I want more, just like I have done with all the other books.
Susannah Harker almost wrecks this audiobook, but fortunately the story shines through. I enjoyed Peter Brooke's voicing of the second instalment a hell of a lot more.
"Good end to the series"
Decent paced, third parter.
Good ending and sufficient explanations to most of the mysteries.
A must if you have read the first two books.
I absolutely devoured all three books. I thought they kept up the momentum perfectly. Highly recommended.
"Great trilogy :)"
Great pace - listened too as much as I could do so as to finish it as soon as possible which I think is audio book speak for couldn't put it down!
"dramatic conclusion to the Wool Trilogy"
The second novel, Shift, was quite a detour but it tied together a lot of loose ends and explained much. Whilst Wool is by far the best nnovel of the three imo this one, Dust, comes in as a close second, It has a lot of the vitality and charges along at a breakneck speed. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.
Well written and captivating, the story carried me along. Loved the last few chapters especially.
Susannah Harker's naration was excellent, calm and well paced yet managing to convey all the tangled emotions of the characters as they hurtle about. One of the best narators that I've come across so far.
"All's well that ends well"
Now I've read the whole of the Wool trilogy and very entertaining it was too. As I've said in an earlier review, it all rolls along at a pace and certainly keeps you involved. The performance is good, direct and understated and it helps maintain interest through some of the more ludicrous implausibilities in the plot. My main criticism of the whole thing is that the underlying premiss of story is so unlikely that it detracts from some good characterisation and plot development. To be really effective I think that this kind of book needs to start from somewhere a bit more rooted in the possible. I also recently finished Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake trilogy, which although it indulges in some pretty fantastic situations remains compelling because you can recognise where it's coming from. The Wool books are entertaining enough but that's as far as it goes. It's essentially hokum.
