  1. I m the author of WOOL, a top 5 science fiction book on I also wrote the Molly Fyde saga, a tale of a teenager from the 25th century who is repeatedly told that girls can t do certain things and then does them anyway.A theme in my books is the celebration of overcoming odds and of not allowing the cruelty of the universe to change who you are in the process Most of them are classified as science fiction, since they often take place in the future, but if you love great stories and memorable characters, you ll dig what you find here I promise.

  1. There are two stupid things about this book, neither have to do with the writing The writing is good, the story is original, I highly recommend this book Let s address the stupid things The name is stupid It is like a garage band was after a clever name There are no sheep in this book, there is no wool in this book There is one tiny insignificant piece where a character is knitting but she isn t even using wool, she knits with cotton Given the subtitles are all knitting related unravel, cast off [...]

  2. This is the review for the entire Wool pentalogy my new favorite word, btw Wool introduces us to a postapocalyptic world where survivors of whatever disaster that made the outside uninhabitable huddle underground in a giant silo that houses hundreds of people As we can predict, the disaster was man made view spoiler What we may not immediately suspect is that there are several dozen of similar silos around hide spoiler You Maniacs You blew it up Ah, damn you God damn you all to hell courtesy of [...]

  3. Forget Wool This should have been called Forge.Writing that s a power punch to the gut Direct, slow build of heat, singeing as it suddenly roars into flame A world that feels solid, heavy, hard edged, soldered with characters that are heated and molded into something new This isn t knitting a scarf so much as forging a steel chain.I absolutely love the character of Juliette, determined, essentially elemental, a person that rocks my character world I love how all her metaphors are mechanical ones [...]

  4. I don t get the hype.If you d judge a book by its rating on and , you should consider Wool to be a science fiction miracle the vast majority of Goodreaders gave it 5 stars, and on it currently holds an astonishing 3,740 five star reviews with new ones appearing every day Wool seems to be a prodigious child of a next Asimov or Heinlein, destined to last for decades and inspire generations of readers and writers What s even interesting is that Wool began its life as a short, self published novell [...]

  5. Admittedly, this is not my genre, but someone on GR strongly suggested it who and I just finished it Wool is the first volume of a trilogy apparently, the 2nd volume is a prequel and the 3rd is the sequel to the first The plot is interesting, dystopian future with humans living inside because we destroyed the environment outside you listening Mr Pruitt The character development is a bit thin, folks are pretty much black and white although one gets the impression that all the characters are white [...]

  6. Bullet Review Good story, but OMG, did we REALLY need 500 pages to tell it So much of the story is just Juliette spending chapters getting into and out of clothes and airlocks, it was about ready to drive me nuts Could be a superb story minus about 200 pages.And because of that, it s doubtful I ll pursue the rest of the series There s a good internet saying for this tl drToo long didn t readSums up how I feel pretty well.Full Review It is some unspecified time in the future people live in silos, [...]

  7. I m not one to expound too much on low ratings, but I feel compelled to do so, here, given the high praise heaped on this book by other reviewers.That said, this will be spoilerific, so if you want out, now would be the time to bail Seriously I m going to spoil the hell out of this.Disclaimer I have absolutely nothing against indie publishers authors who choose to self publish This review has nothing to do with that.First, the things I liked about the book.The author is actually very good at pac [...]

  8. Outstanding WOOL began its life as a self published short novella in July of 2011 That s hard to believe I feel like I ve been hearing about this thing for ages and ages So I m late to the party, but not that late Due to excited reader response over WOOL 1, author Hugh Howey quickly released the next four parts in the series Then came along this Omnibus which collects Parts 1 5 There is now a 2013 edition with a great new cover that features a blurb by none other than Justin Cronin, author of Th [...]

  9. Hugh Howey paints a world, or what is left of one post apocalypse, with an eye for detail that is easily visualized one that you can descend into and inhabit.This is epic storytelling, told with a taut hand on the tiller, controlling the pace and direction, allowing the reader to uncover truths together with the many, care worthy, relatable characters that populate this place I blinked a couple of times and found myself entrenched in this world And it all seems so effortless, the narrative flows [...]

  10. When the old sheriff of the Silo dies, Juliette, a Mechanic, is thrust into the role and quickly finds herself in over her head after asking the wrong questions What will she discover when she s cast out of the Silo into the toxic world beyond and left for dead Yeah, that s not a great summary but there s a lot I don t want to spoil.Since I ve become and interested in the idea of Kindle publishing as of late, I decided to check out Wool, one of the juggernauts of self publishing While I heard [...]

  11. A bunch of people live in an underground community and those who break the rules are cruelly expelled to their doom Reality TV producers have to be kicking themselves for not coming up with this idea themselves.At an undetermined time in the future, the people of the Silo have lived for generations with only a few dusty camera views to show them the world above ground After the sheriff steps down from his post in rather dramatic fashion, the mayor and a deputy determine that a mechanic named Jul [...]

  12. Wool, by Hugh Howey is reminiscent of Robert Silverberg s Time of the Great Freeze or Philip K Dick s The Penultimate Truth with a population living underground following a climate changing catastrophe The Wool Omnibus is actually a collection of five novellas connecting the action, a serialization of an ongoing storyline The setting reminds me of the Zion population in the Wachowski Matrix films, an isolated, encased and quarantined populace I found the narration mainly good, sometimes very goo [...]

  13. This book is an excellent and unique take on a post apocalyptic earth Recently, literature has been saturated with post apocalyptic stories and sometimes it is hard to find something that is fresh something that doesn t feel like it has already been done before Everything about this book was suspenseful and interesting no boredom of rehashed ideas concepts storylines for me.Another cool thing about it is the book is divided into little novellas which kind of refresh the story every 50 to 100 pa [...]

  14. Some books take a while to dig into The first few chapters set up the story, introduce you to the main characters and build a framework for the tale to come Wool sets up the story too, but in a heartbreaking and gripping way that has you consuming the book as quickly as possible, if only to learn the answer to that s not really about to happen, is it There are moments in Wool when I wondered if maybe the book was too dark I mourned for characters and didn t know how they would possibly get thems [...]

  15. I enjoy Post apocalyptic Stories every now and again and as this book had been getting rave reviews I had to give it a go The idea is really interesting, This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden But there are always those who hope, who dream These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism Their punishment is simple They are given the very thing the [...]

  16.

  18. Wool tells the story of a group of people living in an underground bunker with over 100 floors Just talking about what s on the outside, or a desire for any change in their situation is considered treason, and may cause them to be sent for Cleaning Cleaning is when the condemned person cleans the windows so the people can get a clearer view of the world outside This series has Twilight Zone written all over it, and I d be surprised if it doesn t end in a Twllight Zone type fashion.Wool One, 4.5 [...]

  19. So How does one start a review for a book as big as this one Wool feels like the best book I ve had in my hands this year I know it s only April But I don t feel like I ll read another one like it soon Books like this you only come across every so often.All I can think it reminds me of is Way Station by Clifford D Simak, although that one was sci fi, and this one s dystopian But the scope, the ideas, the implementation That s what feels close.In case you haven t read that one, well Let me expl [...]

  20. Before I read this, I er siloed myself off from other reviews Now that I m finished, I m glad I did The sense of claustrophobia and restrained liberty was complete, as a result But I m a middle class American living a life of relative freedom when compared to most of the world today, and definitely when compared to the world of Wool There were times, many times, when I had to remind myself to breathe This is the amazing thing about the book the way it captures you and slyly leads you from plot [...]

  21. The basic premise mankind has devastated the surface of the world, leaving ruined cities, endless wasteland and a toxic atmosphere The only survivors live in an underground silo, a closed society with a mayor, a sheriff, and a shadowy IT department that seems to control everything, including the population s understanding of reality outside the silo Cameras offer a glimpse of the outside world on monitors throughout the silo, letting the inhabitants see the sunrise over the wasteland and allay s [...]

  22. With great pleasure, I read this book From the first page, I was simply drawn into the world of Silos This dystopian world is also well presented and I felt as I read it is literally in the Silos with numerous underground levels in which people live for hundreds of years The writer has evoked the world with such ease and enjoyed in this imaginary world through the book In a hostile world that has destroyed large war, in the huge Silos live last remnants of civilization At the top of the Silos, t [...]

  23. This one grew on me as I went along with successive generations of sheriffs in the silo society coming up against the hidden forces of conspiracy But my drive to understand the real story behind this post apocalyptic colony was undermined by the slowness of revelations, their contrived nature, and wooden quality of character portrayals.I couldn t suspend disbelief on the lack of communal knowledge about the causes of the apocalypse, why the world outside is so toxic, how the society could make a [...]

  24. Wool is such a fascinating and absorbing political sci fi Give me the most complex of high fantasy worlds or magic systems and I can navigate them with no problem, but for some reason science fiction can sometimes completely baffle me Not so here, thankfully I was completely captivated with this early dystopian novel and chilling insight to the possible future of humanity.

  25. It s past my bedtime, and I have to work in the morning, so I m going to try to bang out this review quickly Apologies if, like many of my reviews, it s spastic and rambly and generally sucks This book, omnibus, whatever has been on my reading radar for a long time It s been recommended to me vociferously by one of my real life friends who, every time I tell her what I m reading at the moment, responds with But have you started Wool yet No Tell me when you have But one of the reasons why I d bee [...]

  26. There are many books that deny the hype and expectations associated with them To a degree Wool is one of these books in that it is both better and worse than hype would inform you Regardless it is a brilliant modern dystopian novel, a modern work with style and ideas similar to those seen in Ray Bradbury or George Orwell When other readers try and argue that The Hunger Games or Divergent are the best modern dystopian novels, Wool is the novel that you point them to for correction.This novel cont [...]

  27. I imagine most struggling self published authors would like to follow the trail blazed by Hugh Howey He hit the ground running with the novella Wool which is now available as a free e book I can highly recommend this without reservation as it is free and very good It is also very astute marketing as most people who read it are likely to want to know what happen next, even though it is not have a cliffhanger ending as such I think as a standalone short story or novella novella Wool works very wel [...]

  28. What started as a colorful take on a closeted and dystopian narration with a science fiction bent, ran out of air sooner enough All the unpredictability which my nourishment craving brain was ready to convert into goodwill, evaporated The ending turned out to be incomplete, with the promise of sequels on the way I don t understand the hype for this book Conclusion It s a book not for me, but will find adoption in many a heart My unfortunate brood is that I saw too much of Tolkien in the last ch [...]

  29. Mein Problem mit Silo ist schlicht und ergreifend, dass es nie Klick gemacht hat Die erste H lfte hat sich unglaublich gezogen, und dann konnte auch die spannende zweite H lfte nicht mehr viel rausrei en Das Leben im Silo, die Revolution, die Charaktere alles ist nett und solide, hat mich aber nie richtig packen k nnen Eigentlich schade, denn diese Reihe hat so viel Potenzial Mal schauen, ob die Nachfolger da was retten k nnen Und mal schauen, ob ich die berhaupt lesen werde.
