La trilogia del Silo #1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In un futuro apocalittico, in cui l'aria è diventata tossica e uccide, una comunità sopravvive rinchiusa in un gigantesco silo sotterraneo. Questo è il mondo di Wool: sottoterra uomini e donne vivono prigionieri in una società piena di regole che dovrebbero servire a proteggerli. Ma da cosa, esattamente? Lo sceriffo Holston, un uomo lucido e malinconico che vive nel ricordo della moglie scomparsa, dopo anni di servizio decide di infrangere il tabù più grande di tutti: uscire, e andare incontro alla morte. Questa decisione fatidica dà inizio a una serie di eventi terribili: gli abitanti di Wool dovranno presto imparare quanto sia malato il loro mondo. Il primo capitolo della straordinaria Trilogia del Silo, un caso letterario che ha conquistato prima l'America e poi il mondo intero. Un romanzo di sconvolgente attualità.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 01, 2013 – Former bookseller Howey examines the lives of a group that inhabits a massive underground silo that shelters them from the toxic wasteland outside in this interesting but poorly executed debut novel. Sheriff Holston makes sure that law and order are kept in the silo, especially if anyone breaks the most dreaded taboo: expressing a desire to go outside. Anyone who does is immediately condemned to a ritual called "cleaning", wherein they are sent to clean the cameras that project images from outside on the walls of the silo's upper floors. After Holston breaks the taboo, he is replaced by Juliette, an intelligent and hard-headed mechanic from the bowels of the silo with little interest in being sheriff. Juliette discovers information on Holston's hard drive that explains why he broke the taboo and leads her to believe that everyone has been lied to about the outside as well as the nature and purpose of the silo, starting a chain reaction that may bring the silo's tenuous grasp on existence to an end. Wool's success as a self-published e-book is not surprising given its one-two punch of post-apocalyptic wasteland and futuristic dystopia, but Howey's immaturity as a writer, especially the bland characters and conflict reminiscent of B-movies, overshadows his intriguing world.
