Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1)
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.

    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 act...

    Well, I didn't think this would live up to the hype or the reviews, but it simply does. With a slightly slow start I wasn't sure for a while how this would go but from the halfway point onwards I was devouring words like a thirsty person drinks water. I LOVED Jules, what a heroine and ...

    I feel as though I really need to go to confession before I start this review. Bless me for I have sinned...I initially gave Wool #1 a 3 star rating. I did! I know. I know! I need to hang my head in shame. Please forgive me! Here's the deal. Someone mentioned the first book in this ser...

    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...

    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 limi...

    Ok where shall I start apart from very carefully - I am always weary of commenting about famous or popular books as you can guarantee someone will come up and take a pop at you over criticising their bestest book ever! Okay that may be a little extreme but still what can be said that h...

    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 unco...

    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...

    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 contrive...
