From the first short story, I was sucked in to the cramped atmosphere of The Silo and the constrained lives of the people who live there. The five stories, of increasing length and complexity as we delve further into the Silo's depths, are fluid and full of texture, and the characterizations are excellent. To go into any more detail would risk revealing key plot points, so I'll just say that this is a first class book.

A great idea let down by an overly tedious story. Wool will work for you if you enjoy dystopian future tales and are happy to get lost in the detail about how the society works (or doesn't work...) For me the detail got in the way of the plot, so much to the point where I was never quite sure if the story was simply the detail of the society or whether the detail was there to provide a backdrop to the plot..

I could not put this book down,it really is the best book I have read for a very long time.
I bought this on recommendation from the Science Fiction forum and I was not disappointed. This really had me enthralled right to the very end. As a fan of Orson Scott Card and Arthur C Clarke I am used to stories that make me want to read on and this is up there with the best. Thank you Hugh Howey.

Wow!!, its a life and death ride where the reader really can't guess what's coming next.I must say at the beginning of the book I thought this ones the same as more predictable plots, but the author manage surprising twists and turns in what is 3 separated tales all joined together by people and place. It says a lot about human nature and I couldn't put it down recommended to everyone.

Loved this book, fantastic story and characters you care about.

Unusual beginning but dont want to say why but if you love sci-fi and post apocalyptic stories you will need to get this. Its an omnibus of the first 5 novels, you can buy them singly, I bought the first, loved it and knew Id best get this edition.

Looking forward to the next novels in the series.

This book starts with an engaging plot and interesting setting, but builds into a story where you are desperate to find out what is going to happen next. Despite my partner wanting to read it after me and therefore not wanting to know what happens, there were times when I couldn't help exclaiming out loud.
Buy this book- you won't regret it!

I'm sure it won't be long before the rights to a film version have been snapped up. The book certainly lends itself to being a film with its brisk dialogue and nicely described action. There's plenty of dramatic tension and besides the slow middle section, the book is quite satisfying. I don't normally read genre fiction, but I enjoyed this.

Gripping does not do it justice. The term page turner was invented for this book. You don't know whether the characters you like are going to live or die and the pace of events relentlessly accelerates throughout the novel. however even the book's obvious bad guy is shown to have his reasons(warped though these may be) for doing what he does.
