Sand by Hugh Howey

Anyone read this yet? I noticed the first five parts are out on Amazon. I'm waiting for the omnibus edition which is supposed to comeout this month.

I was just curious if there is an mobilereader feedback on this new work?

It has an interesting premise and I like Howey's other work. Similar to you though, I am just waiting for the omnibus. Hopefully now he can finish the new Molly Fyde book!

I will be anxiously awaiting some reactions to it. I loved Wool.

Hugh says the "end of February".
http://www.hughhowey.com/happy-dance/#comment-24993

Although he really does mean END of February according to this earlier comment:
http://www.hughhowey.com/number-5-is...#comment-23729

Also, he does not use DRM, so you can get the Kindle version and convert it in Calibre without needing special tools.

Pretty good, but not as good as "Wool". IMO anyway. Even more depressing than "Wool" too.

This series sounds very interesting. I will be interested to hear what others have to say about it. I'll be picking it up later in the year anyway.

I don't like spending over $5 for a book, but Howey is a local boy, so I bought it for $6. What the heck.
