‘Exhilarating, intense, addictive. A novel you will never forget’ SJ Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep
The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. In the ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo. Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies.
To live, you must follow the rules. But some don't. These are the dangerous ones; these are the people who dare to hope and dream, and who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple and deadly. They are given the very thing they profess to want: they are allowed outside.
Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last.
WOOL has captivated readers across the globe since Hugh first released it on Amazon, and was one of the most talked about books of 2012. It has drawn comparisons to the likes of The Road, The Passage and The Hunger Games, with Ridley Scott acquiring film rights earlier this year.
HUGH HOWEY lives in Florida. He wrote and self-published his first young adult novel, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue in 2009. The related series that followed won rave reviews and praise from readers but it was the release of WOOL that has made Hugh Howey a self-published star. Originally a novella, the demand from readers sent him scurrying to write more tales set in the subterranean world. The resulting omnibus has been a number one bestseller in Science Fiction on Amazon and captured the attention of readers and publishers across the globe.
