Last night I was tempted to give this book two stars out of sheer frustration but that wouldn t be fair Yes it s nowhere near as good as its predecessor the excellent Wool And yes it s not what you d call really good But I did read it straight through and with no regretsWhat Shift does well is provide context and explanations for much of the culture and history or lack thereof that we saw in Wool and that s cool As a sort of Simarillion this preuel book works The last few pages also nicely set up the final volume of the trilogy And as with Wool it s fun to track the many different ways in which the title fits the stories What Shift doesn t do well is make sense Or provide interesting likeable characters Or have a very good plot to page count ratio Shift is three stories one short one of an early silo uprising told from the POV of a silo porter That one s uite good and the highlight of the book One is the backstory of Solo from Wool there s nothing new here we got the picture just fine from Wool And the story s ending is so crassly manipulative so obvious as to be downright disgusting The whole arc didn t need to be there The third is the story of one of the sort of unwitting creators of the silos from the project s founding through his repeated thaws from suspended animation to address crises in the silos up to the events ending Wool This should have been terrific material but failed on many counts Donald is almost entirely passive in the face of world ending events just kind of bobbing along He makes terrible decisions not out of tragic flaws but either from cognitive impairment or just not wanting to think too hard or take action It s around Donald that Howey s writing fails we re told repeatedly of Donald s epic passion for his wife but all we see is a cool and distant relationship with someone vaguely unsympathetic He uses this twoo wuv to rebuff the constant advances of the hot sociopath but we never see why she might be interested in this nebbish Generally unlike in Wool so much makes no sense here that it destroys immersion in the book It s just not possible to imagine that the project could have been built as described we re to believe that construction workers didn t talk to each other and nobody bothered to look at 5000% cost overruns on everything nor that the triggering event could have happened without anyone outside the conspiracy including an entire military chain of command getting asked if the mission was authorized And if everything s been thought through and sanitized down to the encyclopedias for the inner circle how come all the children are raised with books from before the apocalypse Finally even positing nanobio mind control Howey s society has no storytellers no artists not a single person who decorates their body or their uniform These are not humans Tell me they re Venusian Slime Molds and I ll go along with you But those are some of humanity s deepest traits Tell me that you ve eradicated those but kept farming and industrial labor and sorry I m walking away I ll read Dust the final volume but I m not in any great hurry now

UPDATED PARANOID RANT NEAR THE END WITH SLIGHT SPOILERThe second volume of Howey s Solo trilogy takes us back to the origin of the silos and introduces a few good guys Donald in particular a few bad guys Thurman although we are not sure until Dust exactly how evil he is and some ambiguous characters Anna well you ll need to read Dust to see how this turns out It is an interesting idea with the nanobots and the Noah s Arc concept The suspense is done uite well with time shifting back and forth as the reality of the project slowly dawns on Donald Honestly I wanted to slap him a few times for his naivet For my reservations regarding the larger story line you ll need to read my review of Dust As for this story it is carried primarily on the suspense that Howey builds throughout rather than character development which I felt was rather flat Still it is an interesting follow up to Wool which I enjoyed peripherally and I was still intrigued enough to follow through with Dustview spoilerA uick followup to say that I did a little research and the idea of nanobots being used against the human body rather than for it may be a far realistic scenario than I previously thought Reading this article from 2015 about using AI to fight disease and this one from 2009 about immortality being achieved by 2040 I suppose that the ideas that Howey uses to underpin the manmade disaster that destroys the human race other than those in the silos that we know of is not as far off as I thought This even recent article shows that in labs at least we already have nanobots that can attack specific cells in this case ones with cancer or there are these nanobots developed by Israel for brain diseases It is not hard to imagine how this technology could easily be reprogrammed like on the Black Mirror episode Hated in the Nation S03E06 to kill good healthy cells OK so I guess I am going to have a glass or three of wine before bed tonight hide spoiler
