In a dystopian world, some humans live in a gigantic silo in the ground. The main rule: don't go outside. The corollary rule: don't even talk about what could be outside.
Hugh Howey began the book as a short story and added a few more chapters to it when he got some public traction. He describes a suffocating universe where everyone has a define role, where kids are the results of winning the lottery and where the servers that control this ecosystem have been wiped cleaned after a mysterious uprising.
The books begins by a line: "To those who dare to hope". If you are part of this species, then do not hesitate to turn the first page.
