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.


  • iTunes is the only Problem

    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.

    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.
  • Great!

    Couldn't ask for a better way to spend .99¢ and half an hour. Great little story!
  • Isaac Asimov meets O. Henry

    By Stepdugan
    By far the best science fiction writing I have had the pleasure to read in many years. Hugh Howey is a truly gifted writer capable of crafting such vivid descriptions of such a unique setting that his readers are at home in this mysterious silo within the first few pages. Furthermore, his skillful character development in such a compact work is truly impressive. I found myself helplessly emotionally invested in the Sheriff's plight to the very end. Two days later and I just finished the 4th installment. Each one just as captivating as the first. I have a feeling Hugh Howey is going to be a very familiar name someday soon.
  • Amazed and entranced

    Completely fell in love with series. Will read it again, plus anything else by this author I can get my hands on!
  • Dystopian short story

    By Nchameleon33110
    I liked it. Short, suspenseful, twisted.
