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.

    Fills in lots of missing info from the 1st book, but doesn't advance the story very much.

          Shift clarifies some of the puzzles in Wool but leaves the reader eagerly awaiting the third book in this very gripping series.

            Well worth reading straight after Wool. Cannot wait until the third book is out. I don't recommend reading this during breakfast before work or before you need to be somewhere - because you are going to be late!

              Comments about Shift:

              Loved this book. Maybe not quite as much as "Wool" as a bit harder to follow but very good and clever how it tied up with the first book.I can't wait for the third.It made me want to reread "Wool" and then read "Shift" again as there is so much to take in.

              "Brilliantly written...Howey creates a starkly believable and terrifying apocalypse. More and more layers of the dystopian world are unveiled, enticingly paving the way for the sequel Dust..." Sunday Express "We have been mesmerised with Hugh Howey's silo stories since we first laid eyes on book one in the trilogy ... We'd recommend reading Wool first but you'll want to have this one ready as we guarantee you'll be unable to put it down. Perfect sunshine reading, wouldn't you say?" Grazia Daily "The anxiety, the claustrophobia and the lethargy he conjures are heartfelt and convincing." Observer "I simply couldn't put it down..." Amazon.com reviewer "This is an awesome read...another unputdownable book from Hugh Howey..." Amazon.com reviewer
