WOOL

WOOL

By Hugh Howey - Published by Ebooks and Simon & Schuster

This author can really write, and the dystopian life he has imagined is, at times, truly disturbing.

This is a world where the air is deadly, and where humanity has lived ever since anyone can remember, in a giant underground silo, a bunker hundreds of storeys deep, creating everything people need beneath the earth.

The outside world can only be seen through a blurry image projected onto a wall, “lifeless hills ... a familiar rotting skyline ... ancient glass and steel”. The filth of the atmosphere gradually coats the cameras capturing the view, and the silo’s capital punishment is “cleaning”: the criminal is sent outside to polish the lenses before being overcome by poisonous gases.
