Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey

Wool Omnibus

From Goodreads: This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. 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.

All I can say is wow!  From the first pages to the last, Howey had me in his grip.  In this world, people live underground in a Silo, but an unusual number of residents end up dead or being sent out to “clean.”  From the first moments of this book, there is one huge mystery/conspiracy.  I didn’t want the story to end, because there always seemed to be more to it.  I know I’m really late to be reading this (because I’m probably one of the few who hadn’t read it before now), but guess what?  There are more books now!  Yay!
