Shift – Hugh Howey (Wool #2)


In a future less than fifty years away, the world is still as we know it. Time continues to tick by. The truth is that it is ticking away.

A powerful few know what lies ahead. They are preparing for it. They are trying to protect us. 

They are setting us on a path from which we can never return. 

A path that will lead to destruction; a path that will take us below ground. 

The history of the silo is about to be written.

Our future is about to begin.


I enjoyed this book, the second in the trilogy.

I particularly enjoyed the beginning, learning the origins of the story, going right back to the beginning.

I also enjoyed the last quarter of the book a lot. It links up to exactly where Wool (the first book) finishes and shows you the different perspectives and elements that were happening on the same timeline which was very interesting.

I did however find that the book dipped for me around the middle, and I got a little lost around here too.

The writing style is, as you’d expect, the same as Wool – which I enjoyed. It had a good pace (except for the middle) and I felt it had great character depth.

All in all, a 4/5 read!
