Présentation de l'éditeur

On planet Eno, there stands a mountain that has never been summited. Many have tried. All have failed.

This climbing season finds three teams making their bid up this murderous peak. And one man among them will discover these ugly truths: There are fates worse than death. There are fates worse than obscurity. To be remembered forever can be its own curse.

HASH(0x90fadf24) étoiles sur 5 Putting the Puzzle Together 8 septembre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm a sucker for man vs mountain stories, and Hugh's story rang true in that regard. There was a bit of Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air" to the tale. The elements of technology needed to make the universal ascent of a lifetime were related quickly and concisely, not overdone (thank goodness!)

The story is a quickly and tightly told tale that checks all the boxes...however, at the end, I felt as though I missed something vital. That there was something I was meant to understand. I reread the last few pages, hoping I'd catch that nebulous tidbit that would give me the a-ha! moment, but I didn't.

I hope that, somewhere in my dreams tonight, the missing piece of the story will fall into place for me and I'll wake up satisfied that I completely understand what Hugh wanted me to take away from this story. (Keep reading!....)


Edited to add: Hugh shared with me/us what I clearly missed in my first reading of his story and, given that, I amended my review to five stars, as the fault really lies with me, the reader, rather than the author. Now that I understand the story I'm gobsmacked at how good it really is.

If you want to read Hugh's thoughtful explanation, it's in the comments section. Be warned, though, it might be considered a spoiler! I definitely would recommend reading it after you've experienced the story yourself, though.

HASH(0x90f95f48) étoiles sur 5 Because it is there... 12 septembre 2012
Par M. Kirk - Publié sur

The tallest mountain in the universe. Who could resist?

Hugh Howey squeezed a lot of story into very few pages. All told, this release took me about 20 minutes to read. The upside, it was fun to read it again the next day.

You might ask, "Is a book this spare worth $.99?". I can only say I would damn near pay a dollar to read Hugh Howey's grocery list. He is that good.

HASH(0x90fba0c0) étoiles sur 5 Short Story Perfection 7 septembre 2012
Par Jeff - Publié sur

I absolutely loved this story. How I was drawn into this tale in so few pages I have no idea. But, this is an excellent short story. I should be so bold to say that this is short story perfection.

A well developed story that truly wraps the reader into this new world while telling a story that tugs at your emotions. All of this done while vividly describing an environment that is foreign and how someone who undertakes such an endevour is processing what he is doing and going through.

This is the Hugh Howey that I love from Wool. Excellent job!

HASH(0x90fbbd44) étoiles sur 5 Hugh never fails to entertain and challenge 7 septembre 2012
Par Richard Pearce - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Like many of Hugh Howey's works, the apparent story you read is not the real story. Sure, it's a nice sci-fi piece about people climbing mountains on distant worlds, evoking suspense and wonder. But the real story is about the motivation and the secret conflicts happening within the characters. Hugh never forgets that a good story is about people and how they deal with their world and their own strengths and weaknesses. What drives someone to do the impossible at great cost to themselves and everything they (should) hold dear? What motivates them to push themselves beyond their limits to achieve a fleeting and maybe Pyrrhic victory? What price glory?

HASH(0x90fbbe1c) étoiles sur 5 The test of a man is his ability to say no - Herman Melville 11 septembre 2012
Par John Thomas - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a classic revisiting of the theme of man against nature. The quote from Herman Melville is telling - the protagonist, as exemplary of many climbers, is chasing his "white whale" and is willing to sacrifice his life for the accomplishment. This man failed the test of saying, "No." Against all odds he perseveres and is rewarded by a desecration of all he holds holy. Read this short subject and witness a consummate story-teller at his best. Once again, Hugh Howey shows his ability to transcend genres.
