Free Book Friday!


This week’s Free Book Friday prize is:

Wool by Hugh Howey

This omnibus edition contains the Silo series: Wool, books 1-5: Holston / Proper Gauge / Casting Off / The Unraveling / The Stranded. — The story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep.  The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.  In a society full of regulations meant to protect the community, Sheriff Holston, unexpectedly, breaks the greatest taboo of all: he asks to go outside. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken …
