Summary

This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

not for me<br />

I didn't enjoy this book. There were too many holes in it. It was not believable. I think it is better suited to a teenage audience.

Entertaining

Fast-paced & interesting with lots of human-interest stories. The protagonist is not a teenager, which makes a nice change. If there were more in the series I'd be eagerly awaiting them.

Annoyingly good...

This book is the worst narrated audiobook I have ever listened to. The narrator used very bizarre voices for many of the characters , I almost could not listen to her.
The premise of the story is good and its nice that sixteen year olds are not the main characters in this dystopian story...for once. I am curious to see what happens next but I fear that the story is heading in a hopeless direction. I hope I am proven wrong in that assumption. I am very glad the next installment is read by someone else!

Good post-apocalyptic/dystopian novel!

Having now completed not only Wool but Shift and Dust, all related and all written by Hugh Howey, I conclude that the author certainly has story telling talent. I plan to write brief summaries of all three. Like most contemporary sci-fi Wool is dystopian meaning that following the apocalyptic event people live a dehumanizing and fearful existence as the strive to rebuild. I listen to many dystopian series; most are better than Wool. In this case they live deep underground in what the author calls a silo. The narration is, to put it as kindly as possible, horrid. If you would like this book I suggest not purchasing the audio version.

Author Hugh Howey makes all of his books available at very low price for the ebooks and for audio versions when purchased with the ebooks. As a reader/listener I appreciate what he and other well and lesser known authors have done by moving to self publishing, It is usually a good deal for them also. Such well known authors who have adopted the model after using traditional publishers include Barry Eisler, Joe Konrath, and Brett Battles.
