Dust (Silo #3) by Hugh Howey
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 from those who want it destroyed.
And Jules knows she must stop them.
The battle for the silo has been won.
The war for humanity is just beginning.
I enjoyed this final book in the Silo trilogy. I gave it an 8/10.
As the links all begin to fall into place, we are taken on a journey of a chain of events that will ultimately lead to the end of life for the inhabitants of the Silo's or the beginnng of a new life that they'd only ever dreamed about.
The ending of the story leaves us to conjure up our own ever afters for them all.
Dust has all the claustrophobia that is present in Wool and Shit, BUT it also has hope that they will have the space and openness that we all readily enjoy in our day to day lives. Are they doomed to eternity below ground or will they free themsleves of the claustrophobia?
Juliette is determined to get to the truth of things, BUT who can she trust? She is a true leader of people, all she needs is the faith in herself that others have. She is strong and resilient, she can conquer, she has the potential for great things. Does she succeed or fail?
I thoroughly recommend this story to others who love dystopian works. I hope that this trilogy are made into feature films as I feel they would transfer well to the silver screen.
