Very well written with numerous surprises along the way. There is an excellent ending, but plenty of room for future plot growth. I would recommend for anyone thirteen and older.

I am so delighted that I found this author! I discovered Hugh Howey's writing through John Joseph Adams' The Apocalypse Triptych. His stories "In the Air" and "In the Mountains," from the first two volumes of that anthology, just blew me away. I was really impressed by his writing, his characters, the pacing, the backstory of his main character & the moral dilemma & guilt he faced.

I read that he self-published the first installment of Wool, and that readers loved it so much that it was picked up by a major publisher. I thought that it would probably be worth reading since I really liked those other two stories. I have now added Wool to my favorites list on Goodreads. That doesn't happen lightly. I have to REALLY like a book for it to go in my favorites.

I was especially struck by Howey's ability to bring the reader into the world of Wool and to let them understand his characters. I think his main character, Juliette, is one of the best female characters I've come across in science fiction. I kept picturing her as Jessica Chastain from Interstellar because she's brainy, resourceful, driven, and likeable.

I recommend this book not just to science fiction fans, but to anyone who loves a great story with well-developed characters, suspense, and a fast-paced, great plot.

The "Most helpful critical review" hit this book spot on: "Fun Story - Way Too Much Irrelevant Detail At Times." This was particularly true for one of the characters."The plot line and characters more than make up for this and keep Wool an all but engrossing read."

Wool was an interesting, engaging story for me. I wouldn't call it character-driven, but there was enough character development to make me care. At times it was predictable, but there were also several surprise twists that ratcheted up the suspense and helped move the story along. Wool was dark, but I tend to like stories that emphasize the dark side of humanity and human nature. It started out slowly, but the pace picked up as the suspense built. Overall, an enjoyable read.

..science-fiction story. Same segments flow fast, same are on the border of boredom. I do not plan to read more about 'silo saga', this one is enough.
Brian W. Aldiss was the first in 60es, who introduced this type of predicament for humans in his famous book "Non Stop". This is a story about people living in a place that has been home to them for generations.

I picked this up on the recommendation of a friend, and couldn't put it down. I think it got better as it went on, the writing improving. My only criticism is that there is quite a bit of telling instead of showing when describing the characters emotions, and a bit of labored descriptions of actions at some points. Quibbles aside, it was a great series and I loved it.
