Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The silo has appointed a new sheriff. Her name is Juliette, and she comes not from the shadows of deputies, but from the depths of the down deep.

But what does being a mechanic have to do with upholding the law? And how will she be able to concentrate on the silo's future when she is surrounded by the ghosts of its past?

Before she can even settle in, the whirring gears of the silo begin to grind anew. Things aren't right. And the people whose help she needs the most are gone.

If Juliette isn't careful, she'll soon be among them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insanely good! The best WOOL yet! 14 décembre 2011
Par Wade McGinnis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I had the suspicion early on into "Casting Off" that this was going to be some awesome ride. Juliette - in my opinion - is easily the most compelling protagonist yet in this series, and you find yourself quickly rooting for her. Juliette's scenes with Lukas illustrate a deeper value as the plot unravels... you just KNOW there is so much more to discover about the underlying logic of this WOOL world by what Juliette's new friend offers to the story. I couldn't believe the varying degrees of emotion I felt throughout the last 20% of this book. Usually, I would be annoyed with a series that releases installments so short, but the author has really hit his stride with WOOL and should change NOTHING about how he is presenting these stories to us.

Seriously, read these books!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wool Series - Great Premise Great Execution 20 décembre 2011
Par Expert Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The author is doing an excellent job - Story is a post-apocalypse world where people live in a Silo below ground. The characters, back story and story going forward are all well build. It sucks you in at .99 per "short story". I am sure this is a new revenue model - which scarily enough makes a lot of sense for the author, and for the reader, it is like buying a book in installment payments of .99 each. Where the total price might keep you away, the individual installments are cheap enough so that if you get sucked in by a good read, you end up paying as much or more than you would for a full priced plus novel. This short story is excellent, but I think all readers should know - Transparency - none of these installments - Wool1 2 and Wool 3 are books or even short stories complete in of themselves, they are merely chapters of a larger book broken up into .99 bite sized pieces. The .99 bites are very good, but know ahead of time you will be spending somewhere between $5 and $15 to get the whole story. You will get sucked in because the writer is very good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice Continuation of the Series 12 mars 2012
Par Michael Gallagher - Publié sur Amazon.com

Hugh Howey picks right up where he left off with Wool 2 with this third installment of the series. Howey does a good job of getting you into the minds of the characters. The dialogue was crisp and not just there to have dialogue. Fans of doomsday or end of the world type of stories should enjoy not only this one but the entire series, and you will find yourself wanting more when this installment of the series ends.

If you haven't read the first or second installments of Wool, you need to read them before you pick up and read this Book 3. Otherwise, you will probably be scratching your head in places wondering what is happening and why.

This book and the series was very entertaining - I'm ready for more! You can purchase individual portions of the series for 99 cents each, with #5 listed at $2.99 as I type this review. Alternatively, you can purchase editions 1-5 as one complete book for just $4.99 - I'd highly recommend getting the Wool Omnibus Edition!

A Review of Wool: Casting Off by Hugh Howey

In Casting Off, Hugh Howey continues both the story and the metaphors which began in Wool. And, yes, dear readers and fans of Howey, this book is just as engrossing as the first two. Howey maintains continuity from Wool by opening with another “cleaning.” Just as in the first book, which opened with the Sheriff waiting for his cleaning, a new Sheriff now awaits the same fate. This Sheriff is Juliette “Jules” Nichols, assigned by Mayor Jahns and Deputy Marnes at the end of Proper Gauge. Now we see her facing the same excursion in the toxic outside world to clean the lens on the only camera to the world at large. Questions immediately pop into our mind. Why is she repeating the journey of the previous Sheriff? Is this going to be another series of all flashbacks into what lead her to this dismal destiny? Are we really going to move forward in the story line?
Flashing back was inevitable, but we learn the journey from Sheriff to cleaner has only taken Jules a few days. During that short time, Jules tried to learn how to be the silo sheriff. It’s a self-tutorial that leads her to extended hours of reading case files and staring at the jail’s camera of the outside world. Jules is much more of a pragmatist than many of the other people in the silo. Where they look up, above ground hoping to one day return to the outside, Jules sees their hope as “sad and empty dreams” where gray dust constantly molests gray hills and there hasn’t been life in hundreds of years. Jules knows that “the future was below,” safe in a silo which needs repairs. Below is her world and she is the ultimate mechanic of its social intrigues. Jules must solve the problems that rise up from the deep, one of which is Mayor Jahns’ murder.

Mayor Jahns’ last words to Jules were, “People were like machines. They broke down…Her job was to not only figure out why this happened, and who was to blame, but also to listen for the signs of it coming.” Deputy Marnes is one of those broken people in the Silo 17. He loved Mayor Jahns more than he ever let her know… until it was too late. Now his mourning casts a shadow over the sheriff’s office, just as the people’s mourning casts a shadow over the silo. The silo needs a new Mayor to go along with its new Sheriff and it seems that it will be the blind leading the blind. Both will have to learn as they go. Jules reads the Law portion of the all-important Pact, which is supposed to keep the silo a smooth-running machine. Yet she has unsolved murders, civil disruptions and the distasteful Head of IT, Bernard Holland, who claims the right to serve as interim mayor until elections can be held.

Jules is up to the challenge! She takes up the challenge and searches records, talks to people and narrows in on some of the secrets of Silo 17. During that time, she meets Lukas, a star gazer and an artist who becomes attached to Jules. Her friends in the down-deep of the silo send her words of encouragement and Walker, an old eccentric electrician, sends her a mysterious note saying, “The truth is a joke.”
Jules takes that final walk through the airlock to the outside world, where she is the first – SPOILER ALERT! – cleaner to make it over the hill and out of sight of the camera. You’ll be surprised by more of the silo’s secrets, which Walker knows and uses to help her.

I share this spoiler with you for two reasons: 1) it marches us up the hill with Jules and into the next book, The Unraveling, and 2) because we don’t read simply to get the facts. We are drawn into stories by good storytellers, and that is exactly what Hugh Howey is: a good storyteller. He takes devious political plots mixes them with murderous schemes on a grand scale, then seasons them with vivid, yet simple, details told with real human emotions. These details are Hugh Howey’s strength. They are what allow him to build a convincing contained world underground. He pulls us into the world of Silo 17 with descriptions and nuances that, once tasted, make us want more.

I, for one, am continuing to read this intriguing and well-written series. My only regret is that I didn’t get this review finishes back in December 2014 after I finished the novel. Now I’ve not only read all the Wool novels, I’m reading the Shift Omnibus and STILL loving the read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 'I think it's worse than that. I think they kill everybody.' 10 septembre 2012
Par Cheryl Stout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I am loving this series, after reading Wool; Wool 2 - Proper Gauge; and now just having finished WOOL 3 - CASTING OFF.

There are superb protagonists with wonderful character development all the way through and one really nasty antagonist presented more in this episode.

Jules (Juliette) becomes the new Sheriff of the Silo, much against her wishes. Tragedies happen. More becomes clearer about the inner workings and running of the Silo.

And again, Howey gives us another shocker ending.

I am very glad I waited and am able to read this series all the way through. I would hate to have to wait.
