He finds a hidden message that is titled "Urgent - The Pact" and it has a number on the message that he doesn't recognize. He has decided to use the powers he has to find out what the Pact is and what the plan behind the silos really is. Every part of the plan he peals back is like the layers of an onion and they all contain the sting of a lie. Donald realizes that whoever is in charge controls the fates of all of the people living in the silos. Now he has to decide if he is the judge, jury, executioner or the savior!
Whenever a writer puts their thoughts to paper they hope that they write something special that others will love to read, listen to and relish. Mr. Howey continues to prove that he has become one of those special writers that created a masterpiece. I find his books to be so captivating that I cannot put them down until I have finished them. His work on Wool is about the struggle of life for the survivors of the human race and about how they still don't have any freedom. His character development is spectacular and that is what I enjoy. I find myself rooting for the characters, feeling sorry for them and wishing that they live or die.
The story is about the powerful doing whatever they want and about the average person being a victim and at the mercy of those who think they have the plan for the world within their grasp and control.Read more ›
Again in this book like the previous Shift's, we see Donny struggle with the position that has been laid out for him. This time in a different way. Someone has switched his name with Thurman's, and now he is the unquestioned leader of Silo 1.
Now, this part did confuse me a just little. I realize that everyone has different shifts and a lot of people don't know each other because of the shifts (lack of socialization because their shift will end/not willing to interact with others etc) But I found it just a little far fetched that not a single person on Shift with Donny knew what Thurman looked like to realize that Donny was an imposter?
Donny continues struggles with his sense of self, piecing together Thurman's ultimate plans (which was as easy as going through Thurman's email...) which left me again unsatisfied. The way Donny deals with Anna made me feel as though the man I have followed since First Shift is no longer the same one. To avenge his wife's death (which was how many years ago?!) and his sudden rise to absolute power (oh no!) it seemed very comical. She pleads (repeatedly!) that she has something VERY important to tell him, but yet he kills her anyway. It was almost something like a B grade Horror Movie!
I felt the parts that included Jimmy, except for the chapters of when he was young, were already explained in the previous SILO books.Read more ›
There are five stars up there, for all kinds of great reasons. Once again, I was captivated by Hugh's storytelling. I love that I can see, hear, and feel the environments described, and the thoughts and feelings of the characters. There's no mistaking Jimmy's fear, confusion, and loneliness. Donald's pain and anger is crystal clear. A few more details of the planned future of the Silos are revealed. Discussion of pre-Silo events seems to be done - this book moves the story forward by a lot of years.
The book relates two parallel stories, in separate Silos. They do not intersect, although a couple of interesting details that affect both stories do come to light as Donald reviews old reports. Jimmy's story begins long before Donald is woken this time around, but both stories end in the same time frame. "End" in this case means reaching the conclusion of the prequel series. Although this was a bit different from the preceding books, I enjoyed both stories.
Still, I stumbled over a couple of things. Jimmy seems more composed and intelligent here than the man that Juliette found. I concluded that difference comes from hearing his thoughts in this story, versus his voice in Juliette's story. His communication skills are sorely lacking. But his survival, without serious illness or injury, is not much short of a miracle, considering the number of elapsed years.
Donald - we're done with "poor Donald" - has a long list of reasons to be very annoyed. He finds betrayal at every turn, and has no one to talk to about any of it. He's just as alone as Jimmy.Read more ›
