Wool | Hugh Howey
'The next Hunger Games' The Sunday TimesWell written, tense, and immensely satisfying, Wool will be considered a classic for many years in the future. WIRED'Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.' Daily Express'Howey's Wool is an epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world.' Justin Cronin'Wool is frightening, fascinating, and addictive. In one word, terrific.' Kathy ReichsIn a ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo. Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies.To live, you must follow the rules. But some don't. These are the dangerous ones; these are the people who dare to hope and dream, and who infect others with their optimism.Their punishment is simple and deadly. They are allowed outside.Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last.

I really liked this book! Sort of set in some kind of post apocalyptic world, where the remaining humans live in a large silo. Most of which is underground... This mystery was engaging, entertaining, and thought provoking.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in sci-fi mystery-thrillers.

📚📖Happy Reading!📖📚

This was okay but it's too wordy and there are a lot of similar books out there. This did not need to be 500 pages. And there are 2 other books in the series! Yeah. I'm all set. My IRL book club picked this for September.

Now reading. So I actually bought all three of these Silo books several months ago, and I‘m just now getting around to reading them. 😁 I hear they‘re really good though, and I‘m hoping that‘s the case!

I enjoyed it very much. The author made his world come to life with very descriptive phrases and word choices. Characters were well developed. I admit I didn't understand what the "architect" of Silo's goal was. I got the gist of it, but if someone can explain what the goal was, I would love to hear it! Even without fully grasping the reason for the silos, the story was fully understandable and enjoyable!

Sherlockmarie Great. I‘ve never heard of it. 1y

Post-apocalyptic, where society now lives in a stratified underground silo with only cameras sending in a picture of the ruined outside world on the top level. Society is tightly controlled, but as new facts are learned by the sheriff tension mounts.

This lightly scifi book is slower paced but I think that helps you feel the tension & the claustrophobia the silo dwellers must feel.

It gets ⭐⭐⭐, I enjoyed it but I was not totally entralled.

Wool was like a grown-up The City of Ember. Though it slogged at times, the twists complicating the good/bad sides made Wool an enjoyable read.

The idea of humanity's last moments being our ugliest broke my heart. There's no room for war on a staircase, only death. To me that powerful idea was kind of misplaced by the hopeful ending. I felt like Wool could have spoken louder volumes for me if it had taken a chance & showed how some terrible situations can end terribly, no matter how noble intentions were.
I loved Wool, it was written beautifully and its story will continue to stay w/ me.

Wool by Hugh Howey
I absolutely loved this book. It's a sci-fi book, so it's not one I typically would have picked up, and it was a struggle for me at first, despite being absolutely beautifully written, but it pulls you in very quickly and then I just couldn't put it down.

This book had me until the very end. I've said it before - I like resolution. This one left me with too many questions and some that were barely answered. 509 pages to wrap it all up and finish it and you putzed out in the last 20. 🌟🌟🌟.5

MotionChickness There are sequels! The next one is Dust ☺️ 4y
WhatThePuck @Stephuhhnieee I assumed because there was no way that could be the end. I was a little miffed I stayed up past my bedtime for that. 😂 4y
MotionChickness @WhatThePuck Lol! Yeah I don‘t blame you. I hate unanswered questions. I haven‘t read the books yet myself... but it‘s one of my dads favorite series, so I‘ve heard about the plot. He recommends reading the sequels for those answers! 4y

I went over to my parents house this afternoon to make Christmas cookies and found myself in such a grumpy mood. I‘m going to blame it on the fact I wanted to be home reading this book, as I had just gotten to a really suspenseful part, but I may be ready for Christmas to be over already. Anyone else feeling grinchy this year?

Grrlbrarian Yeah, super Grinch-y this year 😕 I‘ve really had to boot myself into the holidays. Excited for Jolabokaflod and that‘s about it! 4y

I love that Wool is dedicated to an Amber. 😌 My husband has actually started reading it before me and he NEVER reads. He hasn't finished a book in the 18 years we've been together.

Panpan

While Squidapus can often find a lot to enjoy in even the most middling novels this book was just a rough read. He's a bit unsure why it received a decent amount of love because if the book was any drier it'd crumble to dust at a sneeze. It drags terribly and while the concept is decent the completely uninteresting main character and absolutely slllloooowwww pace kills almost any interest he had. While he did finish it, it never grabbed him ever

juliegumdrop I didn‘t finish it and always felt bad about it. 4y

It was good. There was a lot of tech stuff (mostly mechanical) that I wasn‘t as interested in. But, it was definitely interesting and it picked up for me a little ways in, with the focus more on Juliette (except the mechanical stuff!). For some reason, I thought this was YA, but it‘s not. I think I will continue the series (I read the Omnibus, which collected the 5 short stories, but there are apparently two more books beyond this one).

I'm really struggling with how to review this. I enjoyed reading it but it was not always enjoyable. I felt claustrophobic reading it a lot of the time and could not see a way through. And then the ending felt so miraculous and good that I was left with a great feeling about the book. But I didn't have that feeling while reading it. I am CONFUSED!
