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)

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.

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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One Of The Best Sci-Fi Books You'll Read This Year 11 janvier 2014
Par Eamon Ambrose - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Sand has a very different feel to Wool. It's a much grittier (sorry!) affair in many ways reversing the dynamic. We now have an open environment and a totally disorganised and essentially lawless society where characters fend for themselves, one dusty day at a time. It has a much more adult feel dealing with sexual themes and gory comeuppances and is littered with more swear words than a Tourettes convention but this fits perfectly with the world Howey has once again expertly built and while it may not be as intricate and detailed a world as that of the Silos it certainly feels much more grounded in reality for some reason. Not too much is explained about the technology, giving it an almost steampunk feel, we just know it looks cool and it works but we don't really need to know how.

The beauty of Sand however is in the writing. There is a true emotion throughout as we see a disengaged family struggle to reunite only to risk being torn apart again by the forces working against them. The characters are subtly introduced and expertly enhanced at key points, not only building on their personalities and history but also keeping the plot flowing steadily. The vivid, contrasting imagery can shift from beauty to ugliness in an instant and back again seamlessly and there are some moments of - and I do not say this lightly- sheer brilliance in Howey's prose and for all it's rough and tumble, Sand has some well-placed and genuinely tender moments which at times can cleverly disarm the reader temporarily, leaving them totally unprepared for the next fiendish plot twist.

But fear not, this ain't no sandy Seventh Heaven. Sand is a highly-charged, action-filled, thrill-a-minute, ass-kicking, jawbreaking blockbuster and makes no apologies for it. The panic and claustrophobia of the dives is portrayed perfectly and the tension is retained every single time a character dives into the unforgiving sand even if just for a moment, knowing the slightest error of judgement means instant death. This savage world leaves no prisoners and Danger brashly loiters around every dune and street corner. It's a world where it's much easier to look away than help and sadly this is already starting to mirror today's society, but as our characters prove, the most exceptional of circumstances can yield the most unexpected response from some people.

If there was ever any doubt about Hugh Howey's longevity as a writer, Sand is proof that there can be none. Consistency is hard enough for a writer to achieve, constant and sustained improvement is another thing entirely.

Now I know it's only January, but I think I've already found my Book of 2014.

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 Hugh Howey sucks... me in again! 15 janvier 2014
Par Stephanie 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!

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.
