Synopsis

Wool by Hugh Howey

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 allowed outside. Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last.

Reviews

'Spoken about in the same breath as The Hunger Games and The Passage.' Independent on Sunday

Howey can really write ... frightening, intriguing, and mysterious ... it's easy to see why Wool captured readers so quickly.' Guardian

'The massive underground hit ... Just don't read it in the dark.' Sunday Telegraph

'Frightening yet completely believable ... I can't wait to see how Howey develops Wool into his prequel and sequel.' Sunday Express

'Exhilarating, intense, addictive. A novel you will never forget.' SJ Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep

About the Author

Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first young adult novel, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue. The Molly Fyde series won rave reviews and praise from readers but it was the release of Wool that made his career take off. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.
