I read Wool earlier this year, then went looking for more by Hugh Howey. In my time, I've read a lot of scifi, but HH's writing is refreshingly different. He seems to like a young female as his main protagonist (both in the Bern Saga and in Wool), but don't let that put you off, I think they're both pretty grown up for their age.
The subtitle, The Bern Saga, stumped me a bit, it's not until book two that you get to hear anything about that.
On the whole, easy to read, well written, with a few typos and odd words (drug as a past participle for drag, I don't think so!).
I was a bit worried that this might be a bit young for me; it's a dashing adventure story, but has plenty to interest all ages. I read book one in a couple of sittings, then downloaded 2, 3, and 4.
Now, what else has he written ...
