Synopsis

This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. It is for those who arrived late to the party and who wish to save a dollar or two while picking up the same stories in a single package.

The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did.

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 they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

This book is amazing. If you love dystopian/sci-fi, you will love this book! It's like "The Hunger Games" mixed with "1984." I'm halfway through the second book now and the story is still going strong.

Wool--a great yarn!
June 28th, 2014
Wool is a compelling dystopian journey and I look forward to reading Shift and Sand. I was amazed at how well-woven this story is. Hugh Howey has created a deeply textured universe with strongly written characters that really engage you. The storyline is detailed and believable. With enough exposure, his work may become well-known and respected. I also loved the role of IT in the story. A pleasure to read and highly recommended.

Read this book! It's exciting to discover a new, young writer learning to flex his muscles. His characters are interesting and well developed. I couldn't help caring about them. He is full of fresh ideas and his pacing is splendid.

This is a very relatable book in terms of feeling trapped, have to be out of ones comfort zone, feeling lost and about what is right & wrong. I would recommend it to others and also make sure I will reread it again.

Excellent series! I came across this series by accident and I am so glad I did. Very well written and does a great job at capturing one's imagination. The dystopian story itself is quite unique and kept me interested; I couldn't put the books down! I also greatly appreciated having a brave female protagonist!

Brilliant and engaging right from the beginning. I read all five episodes in a row, and loved every minute of it. Each book has a different flavour, though set in the same locale. A mystery. A police procedural. Survivalism. Apocalyptic. All of the characters are compelling and believable, and the world-building is phenomenal.I can hardly wait to read the next one.

This series made me a little claustrophobic at times, imagine living in a completely closed space for your whole life. This series is well written, gripping at times and worth a read. The best part is that the author is largely unknown so the books are very affordable. Go for it!
