Recoil: A Silo Story Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Recoil: A Silo Story is a short story written in Hugh Howey’s world of Wool.
In a silo where cleanings are a cause for celebration and are handled by a crew of teenage boys, a hazing initiation goes horribly wrong. The silo leadership hunts for the boys to clean - this time without the safety of the silo waiting for them when they finish.
The story is told through the eyes of two teenage girls: Petra and Tavi. Enamored with the cleaning crew, they find themselves on the wrong side of an extravagant manhunt. Unfortunately, they don’t find out what’s really happening in the silo until the final, deadly confrontation.

That said, things have changed in Silo 18 in the twenty-odd years since Juliette survived to become mayor. Cleanings have become a thing to celebrate, not just because they preserve the view outside, but because the boys who perform them actually come back. And they truly are boys, the youngest celebrities of the silo.
Petra, Tavi, and Nick worship the cleaners, the so-called Wolverines. When they finally get the chance to meet and mix with them, though, things quickly come to an unexpected and life-altering end.
This was my first experience with Paul’s work and I was very impressed with the story overall. The writing was crisp, and the YA/young adult format is a welcome addition to Hugh Howey’s ever-expanding World of WOOL. I’d like to see more like this. Maybe even a sequel? Eh, Paul?
I particularly enjoyed the social and individual defects and deficiencies woven into the story. The character development is excellent!
