very interesting ( )

Shift is actually a prequel to Wool, and explains how and why the Silo came into existence. It lacks the intensity and action of the first book, and instead goes for creeping horror. Not supernatural horror, but more political/cultural in nature, as we discover the evil some are capable of. Even though this is a prequel, you should read Wool first, as otherwise much of this book simply won't make sense. ( )

I absolutely loved Wool, the first book in this series. That left me with somewhat heightened expectations for Shift - which were unfortunately not met. The story itself is mostly a prequel - following Donald, one of the initial creators of the silos. I enjoyed how the reader is as lost as he is - trying to find out answers constantly. ( )

Book 2 is actually better than book 1. There are fewer disposable "main" characters, and it fills in some background as to how and why they are where they are.

It also has a lot less running up and down stairs with no point other than to explore how segregation would occur when humankind is placed into a tiered underground bunker.

It did tie the storyline to the previous book as well, so it all makes sense. I am starting book 3 now. ( )

Shift is the prequel to Wool. Here you get to find out how it all began, how the idea about silos, about putting people underground came to fruition. And it's not a pretty story. A politician (senator) with a dark vision, a dark idea. And how he manipulates a fellow congress man to design the whole thing (without the latter really knowing what he's doing, why he's asked to be involved).

The book is divided into three parts: First Shift - Legacy, Second Shift - Order, Third Shift - Pact. Legacy being about how it all started, how the real world was still a real world, though with a lingering danger (nano-technology being used to kill people, a new kind of warfare. At least, that's how I see it).

Order is about the current situation, the underground, how people live there, are kept at bay. How disobedient people are sent out to clean or put in the deep freeze to not be awoken again. Except for those of the Legacy, and mainly Donald (the congress man) who's renamed Troy, senator Thurman's daughter Anna, etc...

Pact is then about the reason behind the whole project: to reset life, to begin anew. Which is why they bombed the place with nukes to force people (at least the survivors) to get into the silos without one knowing from the other there are more out there. Except silo 1, where the masterminds are. Donald also doesn't see his wife anymore, due to technical problems (on purpose?) during the inauguration of the silos.

In the first part, Legacy, Troy/Donald starts to remember who he really is, how the system isn't all that positive for the people. As he objects, he gets an injection and pills to forget and step back in line. The second time he's more careful, skips the pills and starts to look for clues.

In Order the first thought that came to me was: why a new era? Why underground? And why are people kept at bay with injections and pills? If they wanted to kill them, why not just do so instead of toying with them? Apparently there's an uprising going on in another silo at some point (not a surprise, because after a while more people will remember and start to fight for their rights and lives). When the troubles become too big, the silo is shut down or reset (letting people out, but not in anymore, so they suffocate in the nuclear environment). Also, screens on the walls should remind people of the dangers outside, so they WANT to stay in the silo, despite strong regulations.

Anna (Thurman's daughter) is awoken to seek out how the uprising and so on could be solved, why it is that people remember, etc. She asks for Donald to be unfrozen as well to help her to keep the Order being applied, to keep the system of the silos intact.

In silo 18 an uprising is going on and growing. One of the porters, Mission, runs after a friend, but due to an accident (don't remember clearly) he's seen as a suspect by the mob, so he has to hide and disguise. His motto is of the sort: why fight each other when you NEED each other to survive? His old teacher the Crow is suddenly under attack as Mission and his friends seek help from her. She also gets killed by their friend Rodny, who's brainwashed about the silo being the real thing, that the outside world never was green grass and blue skies. while it most certainly was (see the Legacy). At the end and after a lot of turmoil in the Crow's room, Mission and his friends are captured and injected with the fluid to forget what happened. He doesn't even remember his birthday, the day things went wrong. He's now also a "happy" follower.

Donald realizes there must be more outside, that it's not all nuked. He manages to escape outside, yet is caught by Thurman and co. who put him back in his place. However, when he once more awakens from the deep freeze, he's addressed to as mr. Thurman. It seems Anna (his old love before he married Helen - who had 2 kids with his friend Mick) took care of the switch. Donald doesn't object to the change, tries to play his role. Victor (who committed suicide as he discovered himself the project was getting too dangerous/out of hand) said himself that people Donald should be in charge. Donald also is given the possessions of Thurman (boots, key, ID, etc...), so now he has access to everything and can use his vision to turn things around, or at least try to. Even though he also has to follow the procedures to install a new silo head and what not. Still, he IS one of the few involved, so someone has to continue or clear things up. Also worth mentioning: the beautiful poem on p. 343.

And finally, Pact. I had a tougher time reading this part. Donald doesn't seem to be strong-minded, though he perfectly plays the dumb guy even though people expect him to be in charge, to be the shepherd, to be Thurman (who would rather kill than go for a compromise). He is angry at Anna and Thurman, because his life has been turned upside down (taken away from his wife, not seeing her since the nuking, being taken for a fool, ...). He wants answers, goes to wake up Anna, yet as he finds out more, he gives her pills... to kill her, not improve her health as is normal procedure. She realizes too late, even though she had let him a message (via Thurman's inbox) so both could continue to work together. Donald doesn't want this, though has second thoughts as perhaps Anna could help him make things right. Still, after some time, he also seeks Thurman in his own pod (Troy), binds his hands, doesn't give pills or the drink, but shoots him. Though he might regret it later, if (!) the video camera has recorded it all.

He unfreezes his sister, Charlotte (soldier), to help him with the drones. While they are used to nuke the outside, Donald wants them to explore the terrain and look for the real world. And it does indeed work, even if the drone crashes before it can reach that part.

In this final part, Hugh also puts the lens on Jimmy aka Solo from Wool. He shows how the uprising led to his parents being killed, but prior to that his dad took him underground to hide and read about the Order and Legacy (large encyclopedias about life above ground, about insects, animals and everything else that's not present/known in silo life). Jimmy learns to defend himself. After several years he dares to come out, also because he has to look for proper food and tools. Apparently he's not alone after all. And in this part Jules/Juliette makes her entry, as you can/could read in Wool, how she escapes her silo, finds shelter in silo 17. And how she promises, to Donald (via the server calling), to uncover the truth. Donald tries to be the good guy, but she sees it differently. And can you blame her?

Yes, lots of details and spoilers, also for me personally to have a background when Dust (final book) comes out.

Shift is a gripping story, a dark and terribly realistic story. Or it could become reality some day. It's again very well written, you could easily picture the events. And while Hugh does fill some holes in the Wool story, he creates some more in Shift. Like: there's a part of the country that's nuked, so the silo project can be installed for several centuries already. But what with the rest of the country? Are they aware of this project? How did they react towards the bombing of the place? Does life just go on for them (sort of "wir haben es nicht gewusst.")?

As Wool is very much recommended, so is Shift. In fact, if you want more background info, then Shift is a must. And of course, for the grand finale, the conclusion of the story, it is mandatory that you then also read Dust, which comes out later this year (2013). The best reading order is thus: read "Wool" first, then "Shift" and then "Dust".

And now I need something light, something funny, something way more positive to read. :P ( )
