The incredible new novel and brand new world from the international bestselling author of the Wool trilogy. The old world is buried. A new one has been forged atop the shifting dunes. Here in this land of howling wind and infernal sand, four siblings find themselves scattered and lost. Palmer has never been the same since his father walked out twelve years ago. His elder sister, Vic, is trying to run away from the past; his younger brothers, Connor and Rob, are risking their lives to embrace it. His mother, left with nothing but anger, is just trying to forget. Palmer wants to prove his worth, not only to his family, but to himself. And in the barren, dune-covered landscape of his home, there is only one way to earn respect- sand-diving. Plunging deep below the desert floor in search of relics and scraps of the old world. He is about to embark on the most dangerous dive of his young life, aiming to become the first to discover the rumoured city below. Deep within the sand lies the key to bringing his family together - and tearing their world apart.… (plus d'informations)

A great read

A very well written book and a very good imagination. What a refreshing story line, totally different from what I usually read, can't wait for the next book! ( )

I enjoyed Sand much more than Howey's earlier Wool. Whereas Wool was dense with world-building to the extent that the details only highlighted the shaky underpinnings of his dystopia's social structure, Sand focuses on the characters first, and as a consequence is much more resonant and memorable. While the setting is still not exactly innovative - this time it's a cross between Mad Max and a sand-themed Waterworld - the family drama at the center of Sand is far more moving this time around. Howey's portrayal of a family whose ties have been stretched to the breaking point by their own individual reactions to the cruel environment they live in is very well-done, and because of the vastly improved pacing, you come to feel for these struggling people in their pitiful sand world, caught between dangerous jobs and hopeless lives. There's enough world-building to get you interested in the setting without distracting from the plot, and it's conveyed in appropriate doses at the relevant times. Even the obligatory sci-fi aspects, like the mind-controlled sand suits that the characters use to liquefy sand in order to dive down to scavenge technology from the buried ruins of our own civilization, feel generally more plausible and well-thought out than in Wool, integrated with the character's thoughts and actions nearly seamlessly. I read the whole thing in barely more than a sitting and wanted to read more, which I can't say about a lot of dystopian fiction. ( )

As [b:Wool Omnibus|13453029|Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1)|Hugh Howey|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1349614200s/13453029.jpg|18979356] this is a dystopian sci-fi story but from that point they diverge. This book is set in a sand world, where the environment is going to kill everyone. It's just a question of when. We follow a family of sand divers, people that can penetrate sand dunes with the help of special technology and their internal conflicts.

I liked the book, though I think Wool was more interesting. I would like there to be a continuation to that book and I was a little disappointed that this was not it. ( )

Good stuff. This book made me feel claustrophobic, a lot. I like the world. ( )
  katebrarian | Jul 28, 2020 |
The setting was exceptionally satisfying, the conflict was not. Can't really put my finger on it, although I wasn't a huge fan of how much the mom being a prostitute kept being discussed. Just seemed like a shoehorned adult theme. The equivalent to having a movie star say exactly enough swear words to maintain a PG-13 rating while still titillating a bunch of ten year olds. ( )
