Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long,
there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life
requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going
outside.Or you'll get what you wish for.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.
