In a world where stories are written by Artificial Intelligence, paperback books are a high dollar commodity and the modern-day author is a thing of the past, Hugh Howey Lives introduces a very bleak future, void of inspiring literature and stories that allow the imagination to run wild. But there is hope as two women set sail to a mysterious island, thanks to what they believe are clues left behind by Hugh Howey himself. Once they happen upon the island, what they expect to find and what awaits them could very well change their futures.
Hugh Howey Lives is a very refreshing read and I found putting this book down to be difficult. It's not a very long read but it is certainly worth your time, especially if you love Hugh Howey like most people do. Patricia Santomasso does a wonderful job with the audio; a definite homerun in my book! My hat is off to Daniel Arthur Smith and I look forward to more of his work!

From the touching relationship of two young girls to the fate of literature in a world not too far removed from ours, this novella explores much in its brief duration. The narrator brings to life a vivid world on the precipice, and her characterizations are so evocative you can picture the individuals in your mind's eye. What a treat!

A charming, imaginative story but with sinister undertones. Two women in love sail for an island on which one of them believes Hugh Howey still lives, despite being set well into the future.
The writing is excellent, sensitive with good description and the narration by Patricia Santemasse is clear and pleasant to hear. Although different character voices are differentiated, this is more a reading than a performance and this enhances the power of the story.
A definite recommendation
