A glimpse into the world of WOOL

wool 2

Great little story that I suspect will stick with me for a while. It was hard while reading it not to get too caught up in a guessing game about how things would unfold. The writing style is nicely descriptive and the story itself is engaging and memorable. Highly recommended.
Memorability Factor: 9/10


This turned out to be one of my favorite reads of 2012. The are currently running an art contest on Facebook for art made by fans, inspired by WOOL. No I

Thoroughly enjoyable post-apocalyptic story about unrest in a giant underground silo with mysteries galore. Not perfect, but darn good and I hope there will be plenty more. I enjoyed the characters. I could really see this as a great movie or graphic novel, or both. Get on it, Hollywood!
amazing world building and character creation in so few words. The tension and my curiosity keep me turn pages. Short, brilliant now I need to read the rest

Enjoyable read. The 4-star instead of 5-star means that this book is not a must-read-again, although it was enjoyable. I am only mildly tempted to read more of the series. I am definitely an advocate of single books as I did not enjoy many of the multi-book stories that I have experienced thus far. Still, a nice read, and the short interview with the author at the end of the book has some great thought-provoking ideas.

The rare exception where I thought a piece lived up to the hype. I'll definitely continue on to part 2.
An interesting little post-apocalyptic story. I can't wait to see what comes next in the sequels.
