Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Sand immerses you in its grubby post-apocalyptic world . Howey conjures a credible, brutal future." (Financial Times)

"Hugh Howey can really write." (SFX)

"In short, Sand will earn Mr Howey another well-deserved million or more." (Daily Sport)

"This terrifically fresh and well-realised setting provides the background for a richly emotional story about families and communities." (Morning Star)

"Sand shows the success of Howey's Wool Trilogy was no fluke. This is a superior SF thriller, both slick and gritty." (Financial Times)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The old world is buried. A new one has been forged atop the shifting dunes. Here in this land of howling wind and infernal sand, four siblings find themselves scattered and lost. Their father was a sand diver, one of the elite few who could travel deep beneath the desert floor and bring up the relics and scraps that keep their people alive. But their father is gone. And the world he left behind might be next.

Welcome to the world of Sand, the first new novel from New York Times bestselling author Hugh Howey since his publication of the Silo Saga. Unrelated to those works, which looked at a dystopian world under totalitarian rule, Sand is an exploration of lawlessness. Here is a land ignored. Here is a people left to fend for themselves. Adjust your ker and take a last, deep breath before you enter.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh Hugh how I love thee! 27 avril 2014

Big fan of Hugh Howey here (as you might have guessed with the tittle of this review!).
After reading every book in the SILO series, I was affraid Mr Howey couldn't do it again... Thank god, I was wrong.
The SAND series is very good, the style is perfect, the story grips you from the beginning, and the world he created is as always very well described, it feels like Mr Howey truly lives in the sand world the way he describes everything.

Do not hesitate!

I wanted to know more. We never find out why, or how, or who. I want the back story, to understand how the world got this way. An interesting concept but it left my frustrated. It felt almost like a draft - missing plot and character development. Time passes slowly for most of the story, then it feels rushed for the end. I hope there will be more in the series to flesh Sand out a bit!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Howey does it again! 11 janvier 2014
Par W. Swardstrom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
(Disclaimer -- I haven't purchased the Sand Omnibus, at least through Amazon. I did individually purchase, read and review each of the five parts and also purchased a paperback copy of the omnibus from Hugh directly.)
With that out of the way, I can honestly say I was blown away by SAND. I loved reading the book in the installments as Hugh released them, but will love reading them all together as a completely separate experience once I receive my paperback in the mail. After I read Part 5 and reviewed it, I said SAND > WOOL and I'm sticking by it almost a week later. The book is just magnificent and Howey once again shows off his masterful storytelling with an imaginative dystopian world that is all at once hard to fathom and easy to believe all at once.
Hugh calls SAND the antithesis to WOOL and I can see that clearly. While WOOL is about the absolute control that a small group of people can exert upon the masses, SAND is the opposite. It's what happens when there is no clear authority and yet people live, work, and die -- all under the invisible thumb of some unknown force.
In my review for Part 5, I mentioned two themes that resonate throughout the book. One of which is that lack of control yet oppression exists. The second is family. There are multiple main characters in this book, and yet they are all family and are all well-thought out and complementary to the story. Hugh does an amazing job of tying the stories of all these family members together so that in spite of all of the terrible and regretful things they have said and done to each other over the years, in the end, it all comes back to family.
There are a lot of parallels to WOOL. There are five parts, yes. There is a strong female lead character, yes. Perhaps the most striking for me, however, was the first part. WOOL would not exist as a book without that intriguing first part with the Sheriff wishing to go outside -- and yet, Sheriff Holston is not a major character after that. There is a similar aspect to SAND, but the story really gets cranked up in parts 2 and 3 before heading for a crescendo in part 4 and an epic conclusion in part 5.
Like I said, I've ordered the paperback from Hugh directly and I cannot wait to have it in my hands and rediscover the futuristic world that Howey has created for us this time. If reading Hugh Howey is wrong, I don't want to be right. Tremendous accomplishment, Hugh, and thank you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing but was expecting more 26 janvier 2014
Par bladesinger9 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Howey creates an interesting world in Sand. The sand diving was a cool concept and the story moved along and never got boring. Yes, it's got some minor plot holes and I felt the ending was rushed. Violet, who I thought had the potential to be the most interesting character, was barely mentioned in the second half of the book. I also really wanted some more back story on how the world came to be the way it is. I'm wondering if this is a stand-alone novel or the start of a new series - hopefully it's the latter as I'd like to find out more about this intriguing new world that Howey has created.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The complete Sand series - clarifying the contents of this collection 16 août 2015
Par Phil in Mågnoliá - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Since it does not seem to be as clear as I think it should be here on Amazon, I wanted to make sure that potential purchasers of this collection realize that this 'omnibus' volume contains all five of Hugh Howey's Sand installments, which were first released over a period of several weeks at the end of 2013 and very beginning of 2014:

Sand: Part 1 - The Belt of the Buried Gods, originally released December 15, 2013
Sand: Part 2 - Out of No Man's Land, originally released December 26, 2013
Sand: Part 3 - Return to Danvar, originally released December 26, 2013
Sand: Part 4 - Thunder Due East, originally released December 27, 2013
Sand: Part 5 - A Rap Upon Heaven's Gate, originally released January 5, 2014

Sand Omnibus (product reviewed here), containing all five stories, Part 1 through 5, originally released January 9, 2014

Each of the individual stories are currently available on Amazon for 99 cents each. They are quite short reads so it makes more sense in my opinion to get this 'omnibus' volume, which currently is selling for $1.99 (edit: I see that it's now selling for $5.99, so the price obviously changes frequently, and in fact this is now more expensive than purchasing the five parts of the Sand story individually). And so for someone who already has the individual parts, or a few of them, purchasing either the remaining stories individually, or going ahead and getting it all together in this one collection, would depend upon the individual circumstances and what the prices might be at the time.

As a further comment, Hugh Howey's earlier Silo series began with the five Wool books, which were similarly collected into an omnibus volume, followed by a further four books so that the complete series is now 9 volumes. I have no insight into whether or not a similar plan is in place to continue this Sand series, but it's certainly possible.

Readers who enjoy Hugh Howey's work and are interested in obtaining the entire Silo series can purchase it today as follows:

Silo Series:

Silo: Parts 1 through 5: Wool Omnibus Edition, consisting of the five Wool volumes: Wool; Wool: Proper Gauge; Wool: Casting Off; Wool: The Unraveling; and Wool: The Stranded
Silo: Parts 6 through 8: Shift Omnibus Edition, consisting of the three Shift volumes: First Shift: Legacy; Second Shift: Order; Third Shift: Pact
Silo: Part 9: Dust

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Howey is definitely NOT a one-hit wonder 14 janvier 2014
Par Diane Winger (WingerBooks) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Sand is a fantastic future world created by an author with an astounding ability to paint a strange landscape and a culture and the people who live there in a way that makes our "real world" disappear and drives us into his remarkable creation. I felt moments of delight when I recognized the real places and odd twists of language that Howey developed to bring this world to life.(I must admit, I didn't pick up on why people with Connor's job were called "sissyfoots" until close to the end -- well played, Mr. Howey, well played)

Although the history of this world is much more vague than the world created in Wool (at least once the prequel and sequel books have been read), I found the characters and soul of this story even more appealing.

As with his other books, I'm sure I'll be reading Howey's SAND again and again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hugh Howey sucks... me in again! 15 janvier 2014
Par Colby Zoeller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ok. It's pretty much blasphemy to say this, but I truly felt that Sand was even better than Wool. Every time I think Hugh Howey has hit his stride, he puts something out that elevates his writing even more. His character development is masterful, as always. His world-building is top notch, and he has written another Sci-Fi classic. I'm just blown away at how he makes me care so damn much about the people in his head. This was a more mature offering from Howey, but it wasn't gratuitous. The more (and by more I mean not much and not terribly graphic) adult language and themes added a depth to the story that wasn't really present in a lot of his previous work. Sand was far more gritty and real-feeling. Bravo, sir!
