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.

Great unfolding puzzle
May 30th, 2015
Great story of desperation and hope. It reads as a puzzle where each page shows a new piece of the bigger picture. If you like sci-fi and dystopian stories, this one is well recommended.

Wool Series

I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. So many twists and surprises. The characters are believable and I got invested in their struggle.I can't believe this book was listed for such a good price. Already bought the sequel. It's after midnight but I'm going to start it anyway. What a ride!

Lies and Treachery
May 1st, 2015
This review was originally published on Kurt's Frontier. Synopsis: The world is a hostile and ruined landscape. The air is poisonous. Life is gone from the world, except for the Silo. Inside the Silo is life. People work in a closed world, full of rules, regulations, and lies. Their highest rules are not to hope or dream, or contaminate others with optimism. The punishment for these is death. If the criminals aren’t murdered, they are sent outside to clean the lenses on the cameras that monitor the outside, then die. Juliette has done far worse than hope, dream, or show optimism. She has begun to learn the truth, to pierce the lies the keep the Silo running. Now she has to keep it from crashing down around them and destroying those she loves. Review: Wool Omnibus is a collection of five novellas set in a dystopian world. To be honest, I don’t normally reach for dystopian science fiction. I like works to be a bit more uplifting. Juliette, Jules to her friends, is a strong protagonist, trained as a mechanic who never hesitates to fix that which needs fixing. This makes her a threat to the powerful in the Silo. When the Silo’s sherif volunteers to clean, unable to live without his wife, Jules is tapped as the next Sheriff. Her appointment immediately faces opposition from the powerful IT department. What follows is murder and treachery. Each part of the tale reveals more of the lies and treachery of IT. The tale is engaging, drawing the reader deeper as one goes along. The pace is slower than I would like, with a great deal of world building. I can’t call it a page turner, but I can say that it is well worth the read.

Couldn't put this down. Great story, well-written and full of suspense. Doesn't delve too much into tech-talk or military-style fighting like a lot of space operas do, which was a great relief, but maintains a very good level of sci-fi elements for the sci-fi lovers out there.

A deep work of genius
November 17th, 2014
This is my new favourite story. This author is a master of building tension and of revealing just enough truth fill you with dread (and just a sliver of hope) at what the next piece of the puzzle might mean. Assuming you see it coming at all. I would have been very happy to pay $12 for this. As it is, I'm ecstatic. Get it.

Waited too long to read this

I knew I'd been missing out on something special. This is a great read and so hard to put down. Hugh Howdy is the best "nobody" author I've ever read. He's certainly "somebody" as far as I'm concerned!

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.
