If You Liked the Hunger Games...

We here at The Things You Can Read are hearing all kinds of buzz about a not-so-new dystopian series.  The series has been on the QT because it is not published by one of the big publishing houses, but rather it has been self published.  Why then are we hearing about it?  Well, the reason for all this chatter has a lot to do with the rumor that 20th Century Fox has bought the movie rights to this series...Looks like this is a case where someone self published and things worked out for them.  Some are even saying this is the new Hunger Games.  Check out Wool-Omnibus Edition and let us know what you think.

Excerpt from Goodreads
Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool, #1-5)

Wool Omnibus Edition (Wool #1-5)

4.5 of 5 stars 4.50  ·   rating details  ·  3,095 ratings  ·  680 reviews

Contains WOOLs 1 - 5.

This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. It is for those who arrived late to the party and who wish to save a dollar or two while picking up the same stories in a single package.

The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did.

This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. 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 profess to want: They are allowed outside.
