Each week, I would leave with a stack of books, and I remember feeling like I was robbing the place. I had no concept of who was getting paid or how, or that authors were even people like my mom and dad. I just wanted books to read and lots of them. Libraries are still one of the best places to get your fix, but of course they are limited to the number of copies on-hand. Just yesterday, I asked for reading suggestions on Facebook and had several hundred responses.
How the world came to ruin is lost to history. But people know that talking about going outside is punished by being forced to go outside: Why do people condemned to die still fulfill the ritual of cleaning the cameras?
What caused the dimly remembered uprisings in the silo? Are they right to do so? There are murders to solve too, and while the action is slow-paced at first, Howey turns out to be as ruthless with his characters as George R. But the Omnibus Edition also features beautiful illustrations, many of which are animated.
Even the cover on Amazon has motion to it. At first, I found the kinetic bits distracting, but I came to enjoy them as the stories developed. None of this is to say Wool is perfect. I thought the third novella spent too much time rehashing a mystery that had already been solved in the first.
Because good writing is good writing, no matter who puts it out. Paperback Verified Purchase. I had very high hopes for this book.
I bought the trilogy because it was rated as one of the best dystopian sci fi series out there on a couple of sites. But I had a very hard time getting through the first book.
Here are a few examples However this 'mayor' doesn't know what is happening on many of the floors, doesn't understand how the information technology or 'IT' people collect and use data on all the citizens, doesn't understand how the 'machines' way down in the mechanics area keeps everyone alive with the water and power and all that.
Knowledge is power. And this 'mayor' did little more than sign birth certificates. Seemed like some token leader that didn't fit the vibe of the book at all. In this type of totalitarian state he would be integrated into IT, monitoring and controlling the thoughts of the inhabitants Instead we get a guy and his aged deputy who know nothing about 'IT' or much of the rest of this silo Just seemed incredibly hokey.
Mechanics, porters, doctors Then the sheriff needs to be replaced and they say they don't need a shadow. Its only the law after all They have foundries and machine shops and can fix whatever problems have arise But they cannot install an elevator?
They have one set of stairs going up and down What happens when they have an earthquake? Or the stairs collapse due to heavy use? Where is the set of stairs for the porters to go up and down to deliver goods? Why not install a service elevator?? They have all these techno widgets and computers All these things just kept echoing in my mind as I plodded through the book. I went from reading 30 pages at a time, to 15, to two Not very well thought out and nowhere near the quality of something like GRR Martin.
I read that it was an indie book. I can see why. I am very surprised that it has done as well as it has. See all 13, reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

Me and the pirates are tight…
The series started in with the short story "Wool", which was later published together with four sequel novellas as a novel with the same name. Along with Wool , the series consists of Shift , Dust , three short stories and Wool: The Graphic Novel.
Howey first began the series in , initially writing Wool as a stand-alone short story. He published the work through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing system, choosing to do so due to the freedom of self-publishing.
After the series grew in popularity, he began to write more entries for it. The story of Wool takes place on a post-apocalyptic Earth. The series initially follows the character of Holston, the sheriff of the Silo, with subsequent volumes focusing on the characters of Juliette, Jahns, and Marnes.
An ongoing storyline of the series is the focus on the mystery behind the Silo and the secrets it holds. The mystery is eventually revealed at the end of book five; books six through eight comprise a prequel to the series.
Book nine pulls the storylines together. Several studies frame the story within the dystopian genre, since Howey includes several of the main features of that type of literature, i. Wool initially follows the story of Holston, the Silo's sheriff.
Holston spends the novel processing and investigating the circumstances surrounding his wife's Allison death. Holston's investigation of the Silo and the secrets it holds ultimately serves as a catalyst that begins to impact the lives of various characters and sets up the action for the rest of the series. Proper Gauge continues the saga, following the unique relationship of Jahns, the Silo's mayor, and Marnes, the deputy sheriff.
Their relationship is explored as they pursue a quest that leads them deeper into the lower levels of the Silo, and ultimately brings them into conflict with the Silo's IT division, whose growing authority is revealed.
Their journey introduces them to Juliette, who will play a central role in the following stories. The saga is continued in Casting Off and runs through The Stranded , as Juliette continues to explore the mysteries of the Silos, bringing her into contact with the head of IT and Lukas, a young astronomer and member of IT. The growing relationship between Lukas and Juliette serves as a backdrop for the remaining three novellas, as the mystery of the Silos is gradually revealed.
First Shift is a prequel to the story in the first five Wool novels, where the actions that led to the status quo of the world are explained through the eyes of Donald Keene, a young congressman, and Troy, a silo chief.
Second Shift follows a few of the characters of Book 6 when they are woken from cold-sleep years later to be consulted on some unresolved problems, as well as a young new character in silo 18 named Mission, where they are experiencing internal fighting which threatens their survival.
Third Shift brings a close to the prequel trilogy. Shelving menu.
