Take a look and listen. Bet you can't sit still while watching. Makes you tap your foot, at least!

Nina | 6069 comments You haven't heard from me because there was a problm that wouldn't let me comment. After much struggle with passwords, Facebook etc it finally worked. Bah Humbug. Oh well, Jim have you heard of the book, "Wool," a science fiction story the author self published and offered free on e-books and now made by being published by Simon and Shushuter's for seven figures and a movie contract?

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 6331 comments Vaguely, Nina. Haven't read the book, though. Considering my TBR pile, I'm not sure that I will. I'm not much on most of the popular books. Have you read it?

Wool by Hugh Howey
Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey

Nina, I think it's a book of short stories.

I was able to download the first one FREE to my "Kindle for PC" via the following page:
http://www.hughhowey.com/a-free-day-m...
At the web page linked above, it says: "WOOL 1 is free right here."

Now I can read it when I have time.

One GR reviewer said: "Book 1 of the Wool Omnibus. Short at some 49 pages..."

See the following GR reviews (They're all very positive and very short):

At the "Badass Book Review" page it says:
========================================
"No Time To Read? Try Wool by Hugh Howey. Wool is a post-apocalyptic short story. When I say “short story”, I really mean it. In fact, I think I held my breath the entire time I read the story. It is only 65 pages long but Howey truly crams a book’s worth of suspense, and fright, in those 65 pages. Plus, if you crave more? There are 4 additional installments (stories) in the same series (appropriately titled Wool 2 through Wool 5)."
