Wool - Omnibus Editionby Hugh Howey
Self-published author Hugh Howey exploded onto the scene this year with Wool, Omnibus. Set in a post-apocalypse with elements of dystopia, humans now reside in underground buildings called silos. The world outside is a forbidden topic, and any who mentions it is sent to "clean." What happened to cause mankind to fall so far? Begin the journey of discovery by following the sheriff of the silo, Holston, and witnessing the ultimate decision he is forced to make. Despite its strange name, Wool transcends the science-fiction genre, as we learn just what it means to be human.
Synopses & Reviews
What would you do if the world outside was deadly, and the air you breathed could kill?
And you lived in a place where every birth required a death, and the choices you made could save lives — or destroy them.
This is Jules's story.
This is the world of Wool.
"Exilharating, intense, addictive." S.J. Watson
In Wool, Hugh Howey delivers the key elements of great science fiction: an authentic and detailed futureworld; realistic, relatable characters to live in it; and taut, thoughtful stories that spring naturally from the plight of the people struggling to get by in the grim world of the Silos. Howey’s supple, muscular writing is the icing on the cake — and the reason why Wool has become a huge international blockbuster. Jonathan Hayes, author of A Hard Death
"If you're looking for a good post-apocalyptic read, you can't do much better than Wool." Rick Riordan
