Wool – Hugh Howey (Arrow, £10.99)
The size of this title is daunting, but it’s actually three books in one. Originally self-published as an e-book, it was understandably picked up for a hard copy edition and became a best-seller.
It takes place in an underground bunker called a silo, where humanity continues to survive after the world ends. The community’s criminals are forced to make a fatal trip to the surface to clean the lenses of video cameras that show those living inside what the world looks like. As you read the main character’s story, you can’t help but wonder if there’s something more sinister at work and the narrative takes you on an intense journey of discovery.
