Staff Reviews

Wool doesn't reinvent the sci-fi genre. In fact, this book hearkens back to classic century-spanning epics such as the Foundation series or A Canticle for Leibowitz. The good news is that the formula still works, and Howey's dystopic world is as well thought out as it is frightening. Plus, Howey has a great Horatio Alger-esque backstory as a former bookseller (hey, that's my job!) turned best-selling author.

"Wool is frightening, fascinating, and addictive. In one word, terrific." -- Kathy Reichs, author of the Temperance Brennan and Tory Brennan series In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo's rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside. His fateful decision unleashes a drastic series of events. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken. The silo is about to confront what its history has only hinted about and its inhabitants have never dared to whisper. Uprising.
