Quotable Thursday

This week I'm reading through Shift (Silo #2) by Hugh Howey, sequel-technically-prequel to Wool. This part of the story provides a heartbreaking look into how the Silos came to be.

"That word means something else, you know," his father had told him once, when Mission had spoken of revolution. "It also means to go around and around. To revolve. One revolution and you get right back to where you started."
Donald was verging on the sad realization that humanity had been thrown to the brink of extinction by insane men in positions of power following one another, each thinking the others knew where they were going.
Quotable Thursday originally brought to you by Bookshelf Fantasies.


  1. This sounds like an intriguing series.

    1. I'm really enjoying; the characters are well thought out, the plot is constantly moving... The setting isn't so scary that it detracts from the story. The science behind it isn't given in great detail, but that's a pro or con depending on whether or not you enjoy technical talk in your sci-fi lit...


Thank you for taking the time to leave me your thoughts! I try to respond to all comments and questions, so come back soon!
