Wool, Hugh Howey

An epic story of life, love and survival at all odds and one of the most-talked and anticipated books of the year.

In a ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo.

Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies.

To live, you must follow the rules. But some don't. These are the dangerous ones; these are the people who dare to hope and dream, and who infect others with their optimism.

Their punishment is simple and deadly. They are allowed outside.

Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last.

"Wool is the best thing I have read all year." - Amazon.com reviewer

"A thrilling sci-fi novel, equally adept at world-building, pulling the rug out from under its readers, and commenting in classic sci-fi fashion on our own present day." - The Slate

"Spoken about in the same breath as The Hunger Games and The Passage." - Independent on Sunday

"Wool is ace and YAY it’s a trilogy." - Stuff magazine

"The massive underground hit ... Just don’t read it in the dark." - Sunday Telegraph

"A thrilling sci-fi novel, equally adept at world-building, pulling the rug out from under its readers, and commenting in classic sci-fi fashion on our own present day." - The Slate

"A small and zippy vehicle with impressive narrative force...[Howey’s] plot twists like a thrashing serpent in a fisherman’s net." - Sunday Business Post

"With Wool Hugh Howey has created a new science fiction classic! The riveting storyline and detailed prose sucks you in immediately and makes you feel like you're right there in the silo with his characters. But unlike them, you'll be in no hurry to leave." - Ernie Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One

"The characters are well-drawn, and even the villains have a sympathetic side. Secrets unfold with just the right pacing, and I had to set the book down several times and say, ‘Wow,’ when a major twist was revealed ... If you're looking for a good read, you can't do much better than Wool." - Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Written in a warm style that never attempts to get too clever, this is the kind of terrific read that's both respectful towards and transcendent of its own genre." - Sydney Morning Herald
