Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.

Or you'll get what you wish for.


  • Well written but…

    By Lainie9999
    This book is well written and the characters are interesting. But I really resent it when a book ends on a cliffhanger to force you to buy the sequel.
  • Fast but fun read.

    By Tinytim808
    Did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the end.
  • Holy cr*p this was good

  • So bad

    By KFlav11
    One of the worst pieces of writing I’ve ever read.
  • iTunes is the only Problem

    By bsemans
    I thought that I’d be able to continue the Silo series using the Books app but this is only the 1st of 5 books that make up the Wool Omnibus. The rest of the books aren’t available in English so I’m going to have to get it separately. iTunes removed the entire series from the store, most likely because Hugh Howey is now publishing privately since Apple gouges their Ebook authors. The story is great, but the access to the complete story is not.
  • Addicting

    By wildchild2644
    Once you start reading this series, it will pull you in. After every chapter I had to know what happens next! Amazing story line, original, dark, action-packed, thrill ride!
  • Wooly cow!

    By kvisona
    That was an amazing book. Great visual descriptives with solid characters partnered with an intriguing story make for a highly enjoyable read. The foreshadowing was amongst the most rewarding I've ever taken in. Admittedly, I wish Howey stayed the course with the quick pace of the latter third of the book but nonetheless, great book. Looking forward to Shift and Dust.
  • Not a good value

    By Tides posey
    Only 45 pages long
  • Scary, but amazing

    By Duffasaurus
    The writing was great, and the story left me gasping for more!
  • Good but short

    By electroblake
    The writing is good and story engaging, but the book ends just as you think you're getting to the end of the introduction. It's like if Star Trek II ended with Kahn putting the mind control bug in Checkov's ear.
