In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platform that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate. In the same year, the CBS network re-aired a program about the effects of propranolol on sufferers of extreme trauma. A simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event. At almost the same moment in humanity’s broad history, mankind had discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall. And the ability to forget it ever happened. This is the sequel to the New York Times bestselling WOOL series.

3.0 I got the mixed feels about this
Ever since I finished the fantastic Wool a few years back I've had the other volumes on my TBR list. It was only when the other half of the two-person sci-fi reading group I'm in selected this that it became a priority though, and even then I'm about three months late getting to it. Part of it was t...

Shift is the story of what happened before "E-I-E-I-O" and "B-I-N-G-O" and all of...

2.5 History of the Silo- Some Secrets (& Books!!) Should Stay Buried
Oh gosh what to say about this book...I'm really just glad it's over. The first book, Wool, was so good that this was like a total letdown. It felt like a constant chore to read. I think what I didn't like the most about it was the way it flashed back through different years and different silos. The...

5.0 Shift by Hugh Howey
Oh, I loved this book. I loved Wool for it's higher pace story-telling, but Shift I loved just as much for the ingenuity of the story development. So far the series is my favorite in the post-apocalyptic/dystopian genre. P.S. I truly wish this series were made into a movie.

3.0 Shift Omnibus Edition (Silo, #2)
I wasn't as interested in the past of Silos 18 and 17 during Shifts 2 and 3, which is what ended up taking up a star from the final rating. I ended up half skipping those parts (and perhaps missing something). The story is also getting a little too convoluted and... pointless. But it's still an easy...
