Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.Or you'll get what you wish for.What the press is saying:Boing Boing's Official Review: "This story is terrific. I was completely immersed, watching Howey slowly paint a picture of a society gone wrong through the eyes and discovery of some truly compelling characters."Wired.com's Official GeekDad Review: "Howey is among a growing list of authors who are making successful careers of publishing without the assistance of agents and traditional publishing houses. The traditional argument has been that if a book couldn’t find a publisher it probably wasn’t worth reading. However, just as iTunes changed how consumers found music and the way in which bands made their bread, ebook readers, and in particular the Kindle, are changing the ways in which authors find their readers and make a living. All of this means the old assumptions about indie books no longer hold true, and readers need to be prepared to adjust their expectations accordingly. The Wool Omnibus is a great book and deserves recognition as a full fledged contribution to the science fiction genre."

It doesn’t end up quite so satisfying to me, though. There is that one missing thing: de...

I loved it-it was fantastic! I really liked how Howey sucks you in at the beginning by throwing you little tidbits at a time about the world and the current dynamics. Some authors try to do that but they can't pull it off. You end up completely lost or could careless about what the hell they are tal...

Have you ever felt guilty about not liking a book? Or is it only me? Or do I have a friend?I will be honest. I had this book for seven, SEVEN months and this is my fifth attempt at reading it. I have had more success and pleasure in watching paint dry. The writing doesn't grip me at all. I get it, I...

Not what I was expectingI thought I had this book figured out but I was very wrong on all points. But now I'm dying to read the next one.
