Publisher's Summary

Watch Silo, the new Apple TV+ sci-fi series starring Rebecca Ferguson and Tim Robbins, starting May 5th, 2023!

The first book in the acclaimed, New York Times bestselling trilogy, Wool is the story of mankind clawing for survival.

The world outside has grown toxic, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. The remnants of humanity live underground in a single silo. 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 want: they are allowed to go outside.

After the previous sheriff leaves the silo in a terrifying ritual, Juliette, a mechanic from the down deep, is suddenly and inexplicably promoted to the head of law enforcement. With newfound power and with little regard for the customs she is supposed to abide, Juliette uncovers hints of a sinister conspiracy. Tugging this thread may uncover the truth—or it could kill every last human alive.

Excellent story but takes patience

The ending and buildup to the ending was brilliant. Very unique story line and concept. I will be down loading the next book immediately. I also started the TV series when I finished this very nicely done. Thank you!

Better than winning the silo lottery!

This audio book-story is impossible to put down. I was eating it up! Could not get enough. Starting book 2 the same day. I can’t imagine what it’s like to hit this when it was new and have to wait for the release of the next one. A great listen/read.

Amazing Story

Came to this after watching the TV show because I just had to know what happened. I’m definitely hoping into book 2 and 3 to find out the rest of the story.

TV Series adapted incredibly

Watched the TV series first and needed to rush too the end, and wasn’t disappointed by the grandiose yet quick paced read. A few spots aren’t described or talked about and more so implied. So keeping up is important.

Amazing story that hooks you in till the end!

Needed to read after watching the show! I was hooked from start to finish, wanting to know answers, finding out more details and who’s behind what. Each new challenge was needing to be solved with quick wits and hold on to your knife for what comes next.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a dystopian, future sci-fi epic.
