Looking for the Next Hunger Games? Wool By Hugh Howey

Simon & Schuster: Wool by Hugh Howey

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 originally was not published by one of the big publishing houses.. In fact originally it was 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)
