I so enjoyed this book. The story was a little more original than many of these sorts of books and it made me think. I enjoyed the narration too. If you like your science fiction with a little less alien action and with some real world action this is for you. A dark future that you can imagine happening in a way.

I thought the story was average. Not a huge fan of the narration. Story seemed to drag at places. Hopefully next installment will pick up
Was really looking forward to this book after the excellent Wool that was excellently performed by a lady with a lovely expressive and versatile voice.
Have found this book hard going despite the great story, the narrator sounds like a surfer and I keep waiting for him to say 'duuude'.
It looks as though Audible are looking to cash in on the success of Wool by bringing over this recording from America but it is so difficult to get past the narrator's voice.
Listen to the sample before you buy, if you can listen to narrator then you are in for a great story.

I wanted to love this as much as I had wool, but its too long winded and gets tied in knots with its time lines.

Shift tells the story of the beginnings of the Silos and is a much more evenly written book with less padding (although it does start to waffle a few chapters before the end. There are lots of good twists although I anticipated most - possibly because I now understand the author's way of thinking. There were still a few moments when it was hard to suspend disbelief.
The narrator is much better than the woman who narrated Shift although he still does some silly voices..
Looking forward to getting Dust next month.
