Présentation de l'éditeur

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."'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."

Biographie de l'auteur

Hugh Howey spent 8 years working as a yacht captain. When he was pulled away from the sea by the love of his life, he turned to his childhood dream of becoming an author. His Molly Fyde series has won praise from reviewers, and now his Wool series has become a #1 bestseller, with Random House publishing in the UK and Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian securing the film rights. He lives in Jupiter, Florida with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

Les autres commentaires m'avaient suffisamment intriguée pour me donner envié de tester. Et ça vaut le coup !
Si je devais mettre un sous-titre, ce serait quelque chose du genre : de la façon d'exploiter l'espoir et la curiosité.
Si vous ne me croyez pas, lisez le vous même.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow! Is there more? 29 septembre 2011
Par Julianne K. Freeland - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is exactly why I hate short stories!! I loved it from the first page and couldn't put it down!! I remember while reading it, thinking it was so good I should slow down because like a good glass of wine, it's over too soon. In a very short story, you find your head full of ideas and visualizing everything. After I finished it, I thought about it again and again.
Well worth the cheap price, if you like post apocalyptic or dystopian stories, you NEED this book!
Buy it, settle in for a short but enjoyable ride and be prepared to wish it were a VERY FULL length novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Short Story That Stays With You 2 octobre 2011
Par C. Brunner - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
There is so much I want to say about this short story, but I do not want to give anything away. I just want to say that my iPad kindle app puts a page count of 65 which makes this a very short story. This would normally make me warn others to stay away, but I am going to say something completely against my norm. I highly recommend this short story. The only fault that I find with it is the length. That is only because it is so good. I want more. The ending stayed with me long after I finished the story.

This story epitomizes the reason I sometimes read short stories. It is like a brisk walk instead of a long hike. It is satisfying in a different way than a full length novel.

This is a very excellent little story...grim, sad, dystopian, but incredibly well-written and satisfying.
I shall now consider Hugh Howey as an author to watch out for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hard to read, harder to put down 7 octobre 2011
Par Linda huegel - Publié sur

This is a brilliant piece of dystopian sci fi. It is as I said, hard to read, but it's harder to put it down. You get sucked in pretty damn fast, and flipping pages is just EASY. Hugh Howey puts a fantastic spin on this story, slipping between what you think is happening with what actually happens.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a major case of the screamin' wiggins to go take care of.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Reminder of How the Written Word Can be True Art 5 mars 2012
Par Jonathon K - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Back when scifi was represented by a number of magazines, back when anthologies were more in vogue, the short story had a far more important place in the genre. Sadly, these days, despite the ability to showcase such stories in online websites, the format has seemed to fade.

Wool is exactly why this phenomenon is detrimental to those of us who enjoy reading. This is a superb story, well crafted by someone who is obviously in love with the written word. The narrative flows effortlessly, drawing in the reader. It is engrossing, pleasurable, interesting, and disturbing, all at the same time.

Other than writing that the story takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting, I don't think I am going to write much more than that. Each and every reader should be able to enjoy the story as it unfolds.

The plot of the story is good, but the author's wordsmithing and his ability to draw emotions with the written word are what make this short story stand out. The story is not just a pile of words haphazardly thrown onto the page. It seems as if each and every word has been caressed and placed just so. This is art, not mere writing.

While reading Wool on my Kindle, I was almost in panic mode as I watched the percentage of the story read get closer and closer to 100%. I did not want it to end. But end it did. But not my contemplation of it. That continued for quite some time afterwards.

I was extremely happy to see, though, that there are some follow-on stories. I have already downloaded them, and I eagerly look forward to see just what the author has in store for me next.
