Wool, Shift, and Dust

 

I am so enjoying this trilogy:  WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST–thanks to a recommendation by friend June Derr.

June didn’t tell me that there was a prequel, SHIFT, written after WOOL (how did they get into this mess?), and a sequel (DIRT) that ends the story.

So, I was delighted that I could keep on reading about this story.

Hugh Howey started by writing a short story–and it took off.  Readers wrote him wanting more, wanting to engage about the characters and the situation.  Eventually a publisher picked up what became a book, and it hit the NY Times bestseller list in short order.  Ridley Scott has optioned the story for a movie, which I hope he makes.  It would be so very visual.

Great characters, great story, good reads!
