Présentation de l'éditeur

Five hundred of us were sent to colonize this planet. Only fifty or so survived.

We woke up fifteen years too early, we had only half our training, and they expected us to not only survive ... they expected us to conquer this place.

The problem is: it isn't safe here.

We aren't even safe from each other.

L'idée est très bonne, l'histoire débute bien mais je trouvé l'intrigue est très lente et la fin baclée. Dommage.
Espère que l'auteur fera mieux la prochaine fois.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An AWESOME Book 27 avril 2011
Par MCA Students READ! - Publié sur Amazon.com

I recently finished Half Way Home by Hugh Howey and absolutely loved it!!! Hugh Howey is a relatively new author who I think has tons of potential. I've also read the other books by him, the Molly Fide series, and really enjoyed them too. I really can't say enough good things about them.

Half Way Home is set in a futuristic world where colonies of people are sent out to explore planets and are born as full grown adults. We follow a group of young people who were "born" too soon, only halfway through their training for their jobs in the new colony. The main character, Porter, struggles with his own emotions as he accidently becomes the leader of a group that has broken off from the main colony. This second group goes on an exploration mission and discovers the true, dark reason their mission was nearly aborted.

I really like the way the plot and the characters were developed. In some books by other authors I've read, I've felt I didn't get to know the people well enough. In this book, I really felt that I knew Porter and Kelvin and Tarsi. I felt their pain, their losses, and their happiness. I loved the pacing as well. The story didn't move too fast that your head was spinning, but I never felt it dragged. I hate to use this old line, but here it is: I laughed, I cried, I loved it!!!

I would recommend this book to older teens and adults. There are some pretty mature themes in this book, such as homosexuality, abortion, and fairly graphic death. I would only recommend this book to mature people who would be able to handle this.

This book is definitely unique. I have a hard time coming up with a point of comparison in books. This book is remotely similar to Star Trek, but even that is a stretch. It is about exploring a new planet with new creatures and a "crew" of sorts, but it is definitely different and worth reading. It is not only well-written, but thought provoking as well. It's a "make you think" book, one that I would certainly read again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hugh Howey Can Tell A Story! 14 septembre 2011
Par Hippie Poet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Are in into Sci-Fi? I can truely say it's not my favorite genre of books but, Hugh Howey is quickly turning me into a Sci-Fi lover.
I was first sucked into Hugh's writing with the Molly Fyde series. Those stories are awesome and I've yet to finish the last two books. (Shame on me)

Recently I read Howey's "Half Way Home", and I could not believe how much of a story Hugh put into this small novel. I was lost in the first few pages, as per usual with Hugh's books. The adventure begins immediately. Don your spacesuit and your mode of travel and let's go for a ride.

We are on a planet that was to be inhabited by a race of humans planted there. They are grown in vats, and each taught a certain occupation that will help on their goal to "settle" the planet and make it home. Only this time there is a problem and this group is aborted at age 15. Only half grown. Only half trained. Many die a fiery death. But a group of teens make it out alive and must now figure out how to manage, how to cope, how to live and learn on their new home.

I encountered young people with the perservence to try. No matter what odds lay ahead they were hell bent on attacking them head on. You'll meet Vinnie's in this story, a strange animal that I'd love to go for a ride on, and trees a mile or more high. You'll encounter metal worms that if you happen to be in their path, you'll be mincemeat. And you will learn what friendship means and the will of survival.

The story just overflowed with adventure, trials and tribulations and best of all a great lesson to be learned on being different, being determined and surviving against all odds.

Hugh Howey has done it again with an excellent story that I will definitely reread.

Now, I ask...how is the group doing? What's going on in their lives. How's the population now? I think I need another story from those that survived. :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm Hooked On Howey! 14 février 2012

After reading all 5 "Wool" books (and loving them), I decided to read another book by Hugh Howey. I chose "Half Way Home" and I think it's another gem. The concept of this book is awesome and it's also beautifully written. The attempted human colonization of a distant planet has been covered many times by many authors, but not quite like this. Think "Lord of the Flies on a Hostile Planet" and you will get some feel for this book. I've been reading SciFi for over 50 years and I found "Half Way Home" to be exceptional. Pass me a vinnie cutlet and some bombfruit!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story, well written, a little slow 24 janvier 2012
Par Niall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
TL;DR:
+ Great SciFi survival novel
+ Well written
- A little slow

I found Hugh Howey through the Wool series of novella's and I loved them to bits.
Similar to Wool, this book grabbed me from the start. And unlike a lot of kindle authors, Hugh has/is a great editor. You won't be annoyed by word repetition or poor spelling.
Unlike Wool this book feels a little dragged out in parts, I enjoyed the character development but I also found myself speed reading and muttering "come on" occasionally.
If you enjoy Scifi novels, survival stories or any combination of the two, then you'll love this.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Soft Sci-Fi 20 juillet 2012
Par Johnny Cocheroo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
****No spoilers****

This book primarily consists of a man vs man plot - that just so happens to take place on a distant planet. Setting up the story was great but then reading at times became a chore. The planet & creatures take a back seat while the focus is mostly about thoughts, dialogue & feelings. The geography of the planet is very simple but somewhat hard to imagine. The language is fairly elementary and the story pace was fairly flat (didn't get creepily slow, fast or dangerous) The plot although having a great start, eventually becomes boring and confusing because it changes.

There is a very, very light instance of homosexuality.

I don't know why this book has so many positive ratings. I would not recommend this book to adventurous Sci-Fi readers.

****Spoilers****

The book had a great start and was able to bring me right in. Planetary ships carrying blastocysts, landing on strange planets with unknown creatures, populating those planets only to eventually send out new ships. Oh yeah, I'm in.

Then, it all falls apart.
First, kids were raised in tubes for 15 years, learning via virtual programs only to be born with the vocabulary to curse like a typical 15 year old.

Second, what exactly was the plot of this story? I first thought it was survival of those who were alive. Then it was going out in the wild to the mountains to start a new life. Finally it was running back to camp on some moral imperative to stop the evil company from finding out how to create a monster that eats metal & craps gold?

Third, I don't care to read about a 15 year old boy getting a hard-on - homosexual or not.

Finally, the creatures & landscape were boring. Small harmless caterpillars, big black harmless stampeding caterpillars and a metallic creature that eats metal.
