Watch Silo, the Apple TV+ series based on the bestselling Silo Saga, starting May, 2023!

The second volume in the New York Times bestselling Silo series. Hugh Howey goes back to show the first days of the Silo, and the beginning of the end.

In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platforms that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate.

In the same year, the CBS network re-aired a program about the effects of propranolol on sufferers of extreme trauma. A simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event.

At almost the same moment in humanity’s broad history, mankind discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall. And the ability to forget it ever happened.

i didn’t feel as connected to this one as with wool because there are new characters that i haven’t “seen” or pictured yet… based on the show. but this one is a prequel … it is really good! i’m finding that i am enjoying the dystopian society more than i thought i ever would. now im anticipating reading/listening to the third one AND the new seasons being made for tv. i love how this one is a lead up and gave more reasons as to why the silos began and how they keep running. it is an interesting yet eerie concept that both frightens and completely intrigues me.

Great read and follow up! At first I was skeptical as they were starting a new storyline but it was perfect! Look forward to finishing the series.

First, this isn't a happy or uplifting read. And yet still compelling. The beginning was a bit confusing and it took a bit to get invested into it. The writing and narration are superb. There was only one part I disliked how it was handled. The author perhaps rushed it. SPOILER- When Charlotte is woken her easy acceptance of what has happened seems odd. No questions, no mental issues, no how could this be happening. Just takes it and goes to work. Odd. As with Wool we're left wanting answers.

The book put a lot of pieces together. Never saw the revenge coming
