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.
Exhilarating, intense, addictive. A novel you will never forget. SJ Watson

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

Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first young adult novel, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue. The Molly Fyde series won rave reviews and praise from readers, but it was the release of Wool that made his career take off. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.
