Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silos rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.

His fateful decision unleashes a drastic series of events. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken. The silo is about to confront what its history has only hinted about and its inhabitants have never dared to whisper. Uprising.

Review:

"Exilharating, intense, addictive." S.J. Watson

Review:

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

Review:

"If you're looking for a good post-apocalyptic read, you can't do much better than Wool." Rick Riordan

Review:

"Howey's Wool is an epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world." Justin Cronin, bestselling author of The Passage

Review:

“Secrets unfold with just the right pacing....If you're looking for a good post-apocalyptic read, you can't do much better than Wool." Rick Riordan, bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

Review:

"With Wool Hugh Howey has created a new science fiction classic." Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One

Review:

"Wool is incredible. This is the best science fiction series I've read in years. Not since A Canticle for Leibowitz have I been so utterly and completely enthralled." Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling author of Blasphemy and The Monster of Florence

Synopsis:

The thrilling eBook blockbuster that grew into a New York Times bestseller.

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.
