Anyway, the switching back and forth from the future to the present is some times confusing. It didn't take me long to figure out that I was reading about the same guy in both instances I just didn't know how they got to different places until later in the story. And the story did develop that way, gradually bringing everything back to the present time. It's a good story if you have a concern for the end of everything. I personally don't see this as a serious scenario since nanobots can be controlled just like any other machine, you just have to know their software coding. Also, biological bad guys are just as capable as ending everything as are nanobots.
First Shift does explain a lot about the conditions that are present in the Wool Omnibus. I understand better how things got to how they were in Silo 18 and the other silos. I still don't believe the shrinks could have thought of everything and written the Legacy or Order prior to ever experiencing a silo habitat. There's just too much going on in the human mind to cover all the conditions that could arrive with this kind of society setup.
Lastly, it was a good read and I'm glad I read it. I didn't like it as well as the Wool Omnibus. I think the whole premis is a little far fetched! And I still think someone in one of the silos would have invented and installed elevators or lifts instead of walking up and down stairs all the time. Silo 1 had them, so why didn't all the others? More lies?
He is called in to meet the most powerful Democratic Senator, and possible presidential candidate, the great Senator Paul Thurman from his home state of Georgia. Donald finds out that he and his best friend, Congressman Mick Webb, have been selected by Senator Thurman to work on the largest project ever started by Congress. He also finds out that he will have to work the senator's daughter the beautiful Anna. Anna was Donald's former girlfriend and he feels very nervous working with her closely and he is so attracted to her. She is smart (MIT Professor), beautiful and still infatuated with Donald.
The project is to build 50 silos outside Atlanta for the storage of spent nuclear power rods for safety and protection. They will be 48 levels deep into the ground and if they were above ground each would be the tallest buildings in the world. He reluctantly accepts and begins a task that is all time consuming and disrupts his family life and his work as a congressman. He has been blessed for some sort of promotion by Senator Thurman and he doesn't know what it is yet.
Donald doesn't even know what the real purpose of the silos is until after the completion ceremonies begin. He has helped build the structures that lead to the end of the world as he knows it.....
Rarely does a prequel measure up to the original story. This is especially true when the original saga is one written in the quality of the Wool series of stories. Mr. Hugh Howey has created a master piece in the Wool Omnibus and this follow on book is every bit as good and the first books. The story is spine chilling and the premise of the story is that in order to save the world as you know it, it is better to do what needs to be done before someone does it to you! It is a story of paranoia and power and shows how a hand full of people can change the destiny of the world.
The story jumps back and forth between the year 2049 and 2010. This is before and after the events that change the world. Every state in the USA has a silo and every silo has a mission, survive! This is a Sci-Fi story but even those that do not like Sci-Fi will love this story for the quality of writing, the in depth character development and excellent story telling.
I loved this book and if you have read and enjoy the Wool Omnibus then you will like this book also. If you haven't started reading the Wool series yet, what are you waiting for!
I strongly recommend this book!
