A satisfying end to an excellent series. ( )

I think it's a 4.5 but as the best of the trilogy I gave it a 5. This book is pretty terrific. It makes reading the other two worthwhile. It took soo long for me to get interested in the first two books. They both got better from midway to end but it was a bit of chore to get there. I'm glad I read each of them but this one - Dust is the winner. Thank God. Juliette, solo, the kids, Donald bravo!

This series makes me think about societal norms and how we are kind of programmed to believe what is normal. Also, how a disruption in those norms can be fearful and lead to chaos. We must be curious...we must learn and not be afraid. ( )

I am frustrated with the ending. I think I wanted more questions answered but so much has been left open.
I felt that the ending was too rushed. All throughout the books every detail was described and explained, but near the end everything 'just happened'. I still enjoyed the majority of this book, but took a star off for the ending. ( )

This series of books has a great ending, as good as celluloid can offer. I was drawn in completely and surprised at some of the changes, but more importantly, I was fully satisfied with what was offered and promised throughout the arc. I can't understate the importance of this. Any great buildup should have a great wrap-up, and this book fits the bill.

I honestly would like to read a much longer follow-up, even without the need for a clever story or great tension. The fact that Mr. Howey was able to make me want to stay and see what happens to those who survive, or even see what happens to the other silos, is a testament to the great world-building. I'm just not tired of the whole experience. I'm not willing to move on to a different book.

They're good novels. I didn't like the Shift novels as much, but as a method to world-build, we really couldn't do without them. Dust, on the other hand, pulls everything together in a damn fine way. Promise? Delivered. ( )

A great closing of the trilogy, a lot of things that pissed me off while reading, but they all had their reason in the end. ( )
