Affecting story of a boy (and family) who are forced to disconnect thanks to a category five storm. First non sci-fi Howey that I've read and it's one of his best.
Presence by Richard MacManus
Plodding retread of VR tropes.
How It Went Down by Kekla Magoon
The Elephant in the Room by Jon Ronson
Jon Ronson visits with the Alt Right. It's good but not a revelation.
Overcomplicated: Technology at the Limits of Comprehension by Samuel Arbesman
Everything is getting more complicated. This book suggests we abandon the physics based approach of trying to understand systems in a reductionist way and switch to biological thinking - sample, study the ecology, embrace a glimpse of understanding and forget knowing everything. Gulp.
I read this straight after the Wool series. The Shift trilogy fills in the back story of how the silos were created and then starts to overlap with the events from Wool. Shift didn't have quite the same tension as Wool and I didn't care about the characters as much. Still hooked though and can't wait for Dust later this year...
Wool Omnibus (Wool, #1-5) by Hugh Howey
Collection of five novellas set in a mysterious silo. A little more is revealed with each chapter and the series gets more compelling and ambiguous as we learn more about what's really going on. Didn't know what to expect (got this as a Christmas Present) but very enjoyable and I've gone straight on to the next omnibus with a final tranche due later this year.
