Wool by Hugh Howey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Started and finished this in one sitting. Very interesting story, glad I bought the omnibus so that I can start on Wool #2 right away.
Your world consists of living inside a silo, underground where all you see of the 'outside' is a brown, dead countryside and a city filled with decaying, building shells. Your entire life is inside, only those sentenced to death step foot outside the silo. Their crime? Wanting out. Their last job, to clean the cameras that allow those inside to see out. But why do they all clean the cameras so willingly?
This is Holston and Allison's story. We go from present day with the Sheriff, Holston to 3 years ago and his wife's sentence to cleanse the cameras. Why she wanted out, why he has decided to go out.
Thanks Wendy for the recommendation.
