Publisher's Summary

The old world is buried. A new one has been forged atop the shifting dunes. Here in this land of howling wind and infernal sand, four siblings find themselves scattered and lost. Their father was a sand diver, one of the elite few who could travel deep beneath the desert floor and bring up the relics and scraps that keep their people alive. But their father is gone. And the world he left behind might be next.

Welcome to the world of Sand, a novel by New York Times best-selling author Hugh Howey. Sand is an exploration of lawlessness, the tale of a land ignored. Here is a people left to fend for themselves. Adjust your ker and take a last, deep breath before you enter.

Takes a bit to get into it. But once your in, your in!

I did not like this book at first, which was a shame because I’ve liked nearly everything else Howey has written. It was about halfway, when I started to get into it. My advice, stick with it and if you don’t like the second half. Then it’s not for you. Overall, 3.5 stars.

Riveting and well written

I loved this book. It had a great story line which took a little while to reveal itself but I was kept glued to listening. The descriptive language is exquisite. The characters were real with depth. Now I’m off to listen to the second book certain it’s another delight waiting to be experienced.
