Books, Documentaries, Reviews: January 20, 2016
Wool, Shift, and Dust
I am so enjoying this trilogy: WOOL, SHIFT, and DUST–thanks to a recommendation by friend June Derr.
June didn’t tell me that there was a prequel, SHIFT, written after WOOL (how did they get into this mess?), and a sequel (DIRT) that ends the story.
So, I was delighted that I could keep on reading about this story.
Hugh Howey started by writing a short story–and it took off. Readers wrote him wanting more, wanting to engage about the characters and the situation. Eventually a publisher picked up what became a book, and it hit the NY Times bestseller list in short order. Ridley Scott has optioned the story for a movie, which I hope he makes. It would be so very visual.
Great characters, great story, good reads!
One thought on “Books, Documentaries, Reviews: WOOL, Hugh Howey”
I’m so glad that you like it. I own all three. I will want to read them all again in a few years. Yes, I too, hope Ridley Scott makes a movie and keeps it all hush hush until it comes out.
