English
series
4.27 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: It is a very good final book of the series. All the threads of the story are gathered and nicely bond and sealed, all the mysteries explained. It is definitely a-must-read for all the followers of the Silo series, but at the same time, it is not very original or particularly brav...

review 1: A fantastic story! I don't give out many 5 star reviews, I save those for the very best books I have read and Wool is one of them. I really had no idea what the book was about, I picked it up on sale and it's been sitting on my Kindle for as long as I can remember. I finally d...
I, Zombie (2012)

English

review 1: Very graphic, gory novel which is actually a collection of vignettes following various people who've unwillingly become zombies. Someone grabbed them - a lover, a trusted friend, a co-worker, and turned them. I liked the insight into what zombies think, how angry they are at what...

review 1: Cannot decide between 3 or 4 stars... Probably closer to 4. Enjoyable to read and interesting premise for this post apocalyptic world. I truly enjoyed Howey's ability to create new vocabulary for this world, for example: sandscraper for skyscraper, sand diver for scuba diver. ...
The Plagiarist (2011)
language
English
3.98 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: My main problem is that it's too short! This premise holds so much potential, so many possibilities. It is great for what it is though - a philosophical exercise in a sci-fi setting. At first I was upset that the main character couldn't see what was coming as well as I could, but...
The Stranded (2012)

English

review 1: As many people are aware, the ‘Wool’ saga began with an eponymous, self-contained short story. The subsequent four sections in ‘Wool’ are not so self-contained. They’re all longer, and they’re all really ‘chapters’ rather than independent stories. Chronologically, they follow th...

English

review 1: 3 StarsThis is by far the weakest book in the entire series. I found myself bored and uninterested almost from page one. As other reviewers have pointed out Solo is back in this one and that is not necessarily a good thing. His chapters are dry and dull and do nothing to further...
Wool (2011)
language
English
4.13 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This is one of those (often SF) books in which the premise is so much better than the execution that it makes my soul hurt. The world that Howey has created is fascinating (enough so that I would have loved more hard details about it). My issue is that once the story got spinnin...

review 1: When a select group of humanity decides to save itself from impending disaster, which side do you want to be on? What if you have no choice? First Shift: Legacy by Hugh Howey throws the reader into a near future in which those decisions are made for you without your consent or kn...

review 1: Possible Spoilers...As a mountaineer, and an admiring follower of Howey's, I wanted to like this book, but in truth I expected to hate it. I wondered how many of the climbing tropes would be found within the story – how much criticism there would be of ego, of the oxygen bottles ...
Silo 5 (2013)
language
English
4.42 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I’m going to cheat a little bit and review all 5 of the books from the “Wool” series together. They are short enough that they really should be read as one book. The only book that really stands on its own is the first one; which in itself is a fantastic little short story. There...

review 1: Wow, what a story. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it. The ending was incredible, totally not expecting the twist at the end. And everything that happened over in Silo 17, I totally want to read the story about how that happened. And to find out about Silo 1 and how ...

review 1: Wow, I am so invested in this story. I got the answers that I craved, but that only dragged out more questions! I am on to the Shift series as soon as I finish writing this up. I am trying to reflect on this series as a whole. As the IT side of the silos was revealed I tried to u...

review 1: EDIT: KEEP READING, SERIES GETS BETTER.This is the third dystopian series (Wool, Hunger Games, Divergent) that I've read that has a female protagonist. Each one has left me disappointed at the end because they're all just 007 for women. (Insert female character) is a strong, in...

review 1: I really enjoyed this one. We learn more about this society and a little about what happened in the past to create the situation in which they find themselves. I liked the experience of Silo 17 and seeing how Juliette handles it. The characters are deep and well-developed, which ...

review 1: JO-DER...Ahora sí parece que Howey tenía ganas de contarnos una historia; no pude despegarme, tenía que seguir leyendo y las 100 páginas las devoré con un muy buen sabor. Además de saber qué pasa con Palmer, introducir a Vic y conocer un poco más del pasado, la historia incluye u...

review 1: I stepped outside my genre to read this and I'm glad I did. At first it seemed to bear too much similarity to The Matrix, but by the third section (Casting Off) it was its own story. The first two sections could have been more tightly edited, as Jahns and Marnes did not seem that...

review 1: Decided to reread this as I still hadn't started the third instalment,yet couldn't remember where they plot line was. I don't think I'll change my 4 star review, although that is probably a generous rating based on my absolute love of the Wool series. But I may review when I've r...

review 1: Howey has done it again! I didn’t know what to expect with the Sand series. I purchased the omnibus edition but in the description advised that Howey said he felt it is better to read in parts. So, I am reading one then another book before going to the next one. Not sure ther...

review 1: Sadly, I found this to be just kind of a ho hum read. It was shorter than I would have liked, but at the same time I could understand the way, why, & timing of the ending. I just wished for something more as I've come to expect so much more from Mr. Howey. I think more than anyth...

review 1: This series is starting to lose its luster. The breakneck pace continues, only this time around the main characters on their own. Mind-blowing mysteries keep spilling out, though nothing is entirely explained and you're left scratching your head. I was also disturbed by the amoun...

review 1: I really really loved the Wool series and so was looking forward to reading this book. Felt very disappointed. IT was supposed to be written from a teenager's perspective but it didn't come across like this and I did not connect with any of the characters. Conversely, the book di...
