A Badass Hidden Gem...

http://badassbookreviews.com/badass-h...

OMG, this short story was absolutely fantastic. Who is this author and why is he not on everyone's radar. Must read, don't think about it, it's a short story and won't take up much of your time and I think it's only 99 cents, just go get it! Hurry...go.......why are you still reading this...gooooo

Even better. I literally held my breath for the last 10 pages. It's a good thing the first part isn't longer or I would have died! LOL

Bonnie Lol No, that would not have been good at all. I'm excited for this now. It seems like a good long while since I've read a good dystopian.

I can't wait to see what you think!!!


Wendy Darling Michelle, the next two installments of this series are also free today! http://www.hughhowey.com/?p=1885

I have had one of this author's previous books waiting TBR forever--his ratings are crazy good.

I'm currently enthralled in Grave Mercy but I'm going to try to read this next. :)


oliviasbooks Yes, Wendy, do read "Half Way Home". It's very original.


Wendy Darling That's the one I have, olivia. I really need to read it soon.

This book is only 65 pages long but sooo good. I didn't even move at all and just read page after page.

That one is good!

Lee Many thanks for such a strong recommendation - I bought all the Wool books and am similarly amazed that I haven't heard of him before - thanks for tipping me off to him!

Yeah! Love to hear that! I'm always fearful when I go crazy over a book and someone buys the book off of my review.

Read this today. You're totally right! :)

Hugh Howey How would you fine readers like to see this series on TV?

I just got a pretty cool email. Execs are willing to fly out to sit down with me. :D

Pretty surreal. Thanks much for spreading the love.


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Wool on TV? Sign me up, please :).

Totally would rock as a tv series. That is awesome news. Congrats, regardless if it makes it on tv or not. It's a great story/series.

This is the one short story I was glad was so short. I don't think my lung capacity could have held out for much longer than 65 pages considering I didn't take one breath the entire time.
