I got my information about the Random House deal from Publishers Marketplace, which lists all reported deals that publishers and agents submit. (Century is part of
Random House Group (UK) which is part of Bertelsmann.) To access Publishers Marketplace, you have to have a subscription, which may be why it didn't show up in a search.

"I had no idea it was to be made into a movie - I've not heard anything about Wool( the book) in Australia."

That's not surprising, I think the only reason anyone knows about the book is beacuse word of mouth - people telling other people they should read the book.. The only reason I knew about it was it was brought up on one the threads over on the Science Fiction forum.

"My question asked if the book on Amazon had a definitive ending - that's all"

I guess it depends on what you consider a "definitive ending".. The books 1~5 do end.. But then there is the book six, which is really a prequel that adds to what you've read in the first five books by filling in how things got to where they were at the begining of book one.. Do you have to read book six to enjoy the omnibus? Not really.

"I am skeptical/cynical because what a lot of people in the world might like ......I and others will not like."

The fact you're asking about the suggested that you might be interested in reading it. I'm guessing that you have at least read the synopsis that was written for the book's product page.

"At the moment I am very disenchanted in series books."

If that's the case, then don't read this, as it does seem to have the potential of turning into a series.. as well as a movie. Although, given the scope of the books, I could see it being more a mini-series than a feature film.

Warning! Reading about stair climbing might tire you out.....the characters do spend a fair amount of time climbing up and down those silos.

So..... I'll try the "mental" version of cardio -
ps Jules - that's my kind of fitness programme (I walk and jog enough at work)

Is there sexuality in this series? Is it appropriate for a 15 year old girl?

There is just one brief scene in the book where two people sleep together - it's an older couple and it really doesn't go into any details.. It just establishes that they care for each other.

I think a 15 year old would like the book.
