Book 1 of the Wool Omnibus. Short at some 49 pages – and its got my attention. The remnants of mankind live in a giant circular Silo going into the ground – outside is an uninhabitable waste with toxic corrosive air.

We aren’t really told what’s happened/5. P erhaps inevitably, Hugh Howey's Wool has been described as the science fiction version of Fifty Shades of Grey. Howey initially self-published the first instalment of his post-apocalyptic story – Author: Alison Flood.

A New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller, as well as Kindle Book Review’s Indie Book of the Year, Wool is truly a blockbuster. Books Wool review.

By Keith Donohue Ma Even if it were just a run-of-the-mill post-apocalyptic novel about a society forced to live underground, “ Wool ” would still be quite a tale.

In the summer of. This is the review for the entire Wool pentalogy (my new favorite word, btw). Wool introduces us to a postapocalyptic world where survivors of whatever disaster that made the outside uninhabitable huddle underground in a giant "silo" that houses hundreds of people. As we can predict, the disaster was man-made (*).

(view spoiler)/5. Hugh Howey is the author of Wool, a book he wrote while working as a bookseller, writing each morning and during every lunch break for nearly three years. Originally self-published inWool has grown into a New York Times bestseller. He now lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog : Simon & Schuster.

Wool: Omnibus Edition is a collection of his first five novellas in the Wool series. The stories are set in a post-apocalyptic future in which the earth’s air has become toxic and the last survivors are forced to live underground in an immense silo with over levels.

How the world came to /5. The Wool Trilogy is, without a doubt, my favourite dystopian read. It has everything you need in a good dystopian book whilst managing to go against the grain of what is so popular. We have the necessary degraded world, filled with secrets we want to understand, and characters who have their mind set on life being lived in a particular way/5.

Clara Parkes’ “The Knitter’s Book of Wool: The Ultimate Guide to Understanding, Using, and Loving This Most Fabulous Fiber” is a mouthful of a title. This hard-copy book with a dust jacket has pages, almost all of which have color photos or black and white graphs. The Knitter’s Book is published by Potter Crafts/5(68).

Silo is a series of post-apocalyptic science fiction books by American writer Hugh Howey. 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. 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 Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months.

My thanks go out to those. The series is a continuous story that should be read in order: Wool Omnibus, Shift Omnibus, Dust Three additional short stories (In the Air, In the Mountain, In the Woods) have been published in anthologies and were included in Howey's collection Machine Learning.

Sub-series: Wool Shift See also: Silo Saga - a Kindle Worlds series based in the same uni Series Works: Shift, Wool, Dust. As it turns out, wool in Hugh Howey’s novel is the steel wool used to clean camera lenses on a buried silo. A silo buried for life, for the living in some post-apocalyptic world in which the descendants of survivors only have a camera’s eye view of the outside world and that camera lens must be kept clean/5.

Wool is a simply incredible piece of fiction, it's bold and beautiful, modern and yet with an air of classic science fiction about it.

The World-Building is credible and concise, populated by characters that are as real as it gets.5/5. Wool as you’ve never read it before: The New York Times bestselling novel is now told in graphic novel format.

This contemporary dystopian classic—hailed by Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of The Passage, as “an epic feat of imagination”—will captivate readers both familiar and new/5. Review for Wool by Hugh Howey, book one of the Silo trilogy.

My blog: Goodreads: Wool: Omnibus Edition is a collection of his first five novellas in the Wool series. The stories are set in a post-apocalyptic future in which the earth’s air has become toxic and the last survivors are forced to live underground in an immense silo with over levels.

How the world came to ruin is lost to history/5. Book Review # Wool by Hugh Howey - Duration: Becky M 8, views. Wool - The Basics of the Silo Series - Geek Crash Course East - Duration:   WOOL by Hugh Howey has everything a post-apocalptic book ought to: humanity struggling to survive, plucky heroes, and revelations that change the future.

Overall, WOOL moves at a great pace (although there are some slow spots in the middle)/5. Wool presents an intriguing slant on the post-apocalyptic theme. The story opens with humanity confined to an underground silo consisting of about levels, but without any sort of elevator or escalator, just stairs.

Outside the silo is a barren, poisonous landscape. The Wool Omnibus is a great book and deserves recognition as a full fledged contribution to the science fiction would human beings be like if for several hundred years they had been.W elcome to Knitter’s Review, your trusted resource for in-depth reviews of knitting yarns and tools, as well as tutorials on everything from how to knit socks and lace to how to substitute yarns.
