it was amazing
bookshelves: dystopian, 5-star
Read from April 26 to 27, 2012

Amazing, freaking amazing. Now that all that world building is out of the way, the author can focus on the plot. And what a plot it is, there's mystery brewing in the silos, suspicion of a greater force at work causing a line of deaths that constantly keep happening..

Great commendations for Hugh Howey's work, a short, concise, lyrical masterpiece. Even the most mundane parts of everyday life is painted beautifully, placing you right there in the desolate life of being trapped in a silo. Each of these novellas have so far has featured a different protagonist, their internal dialogue ringing true and tying you deep into their character.

A minor warning for those who pick this one up - you'll want to have the rest close at hand because this one ends with a whopping cliffhanger. First thing I did was jump onto Amazon and purchase the next one.

If you're a fan of sci-fi, dystopia, or just excellent self-published works, Wool is definitely for you.
