Wool




An epic story of survival at all odds and one of the most anticipated books of the year.

'The next Hunger Games' The Sunday Times

‘Well written, tense, and immensely satisfying, Wool will be considered a classic for many years in the future.’ WIRED

'Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.' Daily Express

'Howey's Wool is an epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world.' Justin Cronin

'Wool is frightening, fascinating, and addictive. In one word, terrific.' Kathy Reichs

In a 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 allowed outside.

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

About the Author

Hugh Howey

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 the Wool trilogy, which won rave reviews and praise from readers, and whose three books have gone on to become international bestsellers.

He lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

Praise for Wool

“Wool is ace and YAY it’s a trilogy.”

Stuff magazine

“I picked the serious up after the publication of Wool and Shift, and found myself counting the days until Dust came out in October.”

Observer

“A thrilling sci-fi novel, equally adept at world-building, pulling the rug out from under its readers, and commenting in classic sci-fi fashion on our own present day.”
