Introduction

Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.

Or you'll get what you wish for.


What the press is saying:

Boing Boing's Official Review: "This story is terrific. I was completely immersed, watching Howey slowly paint a picture of a society gone wrong through the eyes and discovery of some truly compelling characters."

Wired.com's Official GeekDad Review: "Howey is among a growing list of authors who are making successful careers of publishing without the assistance of agents and traditional publishing houses. The traditional argument has been that if a book couldn’t find a publisher it probably wasn’t worth reading. However, just as iTunes changed how consumers found music and the way in which bands made their bread, ebook readers, and in particular the Kindle, are changing the ways in which authors find their readers and make a living. All of this means the old assumptions about indie books no longer hold true, and readers need to be prepared to adjust their expectations accordingly. The Wool Omnibus is a great book and deserves recognition as a full fledged contribution to the science fiction genre."

This turned out to be a great book for a great book club selection. Loved the whole concept of silo's...lots and lots of steps. This post-apocalyptic world is actually filled with mystery and intrigue.... (read more)

 
  "Makes you think"by ddrinkle (see profile) 05/26/13

Wool took me by surprise. It made me ponder, think 'outside' and still left me wondering. I had to pick up #2 and read it as well in the same day.
