I love the world building, and while I wouldn't want to live in it, I found the world to be both original and very believable.
I do wonder whether this has something to do with he fact that Hugh Howey wrote the book as a series of mini-stories which would break it up to some extent anyway , but in either case it nearly ruins the book The story also kind of tails off towards the end, with very little surprise and more and comfort to tie together loose ends than anything else...

Each book: Sure, there were a few technical things mostly about the underwater sequence that bothered me and I think the author unnecessarily undercuts suspense with the short opening sequence to Part 3, but altogether this is a very solid book or, if you prefer to think of it that way, series of five shorter, linked books.
I cannot really go much Such a scary look at the future.
