My life is too tight…
My skin is too tight.
The walls are too tight

This is why I love GR! Books that I’d not have even look twice at come to my attention. Wool is a short, short read but it’s its ending that packs a wallop. The back and forth between three years past and then his present read both compelling… if at first a little unclear.

His memories of Allison on her wanting the inconsiderable, then him coming to a similar point were equal parts confusing and intriguing. Then those little tidbits that painted a world constrained of lotteries and the grave offense… had the place feeling even more tiny.

But, I kid you not when I say that that ending was wholly unexpected… a kick to the gut.
