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 adult novel, Wool, which won rave reviews and praise from readers. Dust is the final part of the trilogy. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.

I did guess correctly what was coming at the end of this first episode, but the way Hugh weaves the story, I found myself second guessing and wondering what was going to be discovered next.
A very interesting thought occurred to me while reading it. If you take the setting in the wool series (people stuck in an underground silo), and turn it on it's head (people wondering what is buried in the "under"), this has some very similar themes but in reverse.
Looking forward to the next episode!
Having said that I do look forward to 'book' 6
However, it is so good all we can do is bendover and take it, the characters and the sheer excitement will take your mind off what is happening to you. And then beg for more….
I don't need twenty more words, I am not being paid by the inch, I have said all I needed to say
I won't risk spilling the guts of the story, but will instead heap praise on the bleak and frightening world that Hugh Howey has envisaged.
I'm a diver, and frankly I was terrified!
The claustrophobic world beneath the shifting sands is so chokingly real that I was as desperate to be released from it as the characters were... and as eager to discover what they did...
Looking forwards to Part Two!
I've just finish reading all 5 episodes and like Wool I can't stop thinking about the story, the characters and the world in which the story is set. For some reason Hugh Howey's writing does this to me every time.
Like Wool I feel that Sand also has great scope to make a blockbuster movie out of it.
My only gripe is that Sand is too short. I want more! Hugh I hope you are planning a sequel!
I'm on book 5 now and havnt been able to put them down.
