Daniel is a young man in his own little world of facebook and his phone and his few meager friends at high school. Life is kind of square and boring for Daniel who never really seems to fit in. During a Category 5 Hurricane, which devastates his neighborhood, Daniel meets new people and learns some wonderful things about himself and his family.
I love the book and how Howey is almost poetic with his descriptions of the Hurricane's aftermath. It made me feel like I was experiencing the wrath of the storm just as Daniel and his family were. It was definitely a quick read. I got so involved with Daniel and his family I had to know what the heck was going to happen next.
The book held a wonderful statement for me, for all of us who get caught up in our own little worlds. Put down your electronics. Dig yourself out of you and say hello to your neighbors. Like Daniel, you'll never know what you'll find down the street.
Great little book with a big story. :)
Next stop, half way home... Then the rest of wool then finally Molly Fyde.
One thing is for sure, out of the thousands of books, E or real, that I have read in my 27 years on this planet, no writer has even kept my attention through multiple different stories as Hugh Howey has.
And, like a lot of people with Mr. Howeys works, this is my very first review as I thought this story was just THAT good... Hope you write more of these style of stories, you know, life of a teen style, I dunno why, maybe my teenage years weren't exciting enough and I just want to live though the power of words those years... Or something like that...
The story was perfect, captured my imagination for word one and literally made me feel like I was there... Excelent work!
This will be as highly recomended a Hugh Howey story as Wool and Halfway Home and all for very different reasons.
Daniel Stillman, 17, feels like an outcast in high school. He doesn’t fit in with any of the “cliques": the jocks, the preps, the hipsters, the gamers…. He thinks he must be just too dull - he dresses in normal clothes, he lacks confidence with girls, and doesn’t even have a smartphone like everyone else. The other kids scorn him as a “rando, a creeper, a sketch.”
Then Hurricane Anna hits, with the eye right over Beaufort. Daniel and his family (mom, stepdad Carlton, and younger sister Zola) take refuge in the bathroom in the center of the house. Trees come down everywhere, and they end up with a big hole in their house. Daniel’s estranged dad shows up with a chainsaw, and they and the other neighbors set about the business of cleaning up and rebuilding.
With the power out for a week, suddenly people are forced to interact with one another rather than with their digital devices, and Daniel’s family gets to know each other and their neighbors really for the first time. Daniel meets a nice, smart girl only four houses away, ironically named Anna, who has been home-schooled, precisely to avoid the kind of social pressures that have tormented Daniel.
Evaluation: This is a very sweet and quiet story, with a sort of delayed impact, much as one might experience from being in the eye of a storm. Daniel has an appealing, self-deprecating sense of humor. Howey is adept at conveying the different fears and insecurities members of his family feel both before and during the storm.Read more ›

I read this book because I like a lot of the author's other books, especially Wool, the Silo Series. This book seemed more written for a teen or tween than for adult reading. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sharon G. Freese

I like Hugh Howie a lot and this was a fun trip into a teen boy's head. I liked the set up and the story. Not his greatest or most imaginative but worth the read.Published 1 month ago by Mardig
It's a nice story. Very different from anything I've read by Hugh Howey. It is definitely for a younger audience.Published 1 month ago by wanda vahle
