  • This book was a great fast read. It is another dystopian genre book - however I really enjoyed the angle Howey takes - that the structure of his "silo" society isn't all that bad...mostly. His characters are well developed, the details on society and the environment seem scientifically sound. Also, there was really no "slow" story line here. Side note, Hugh Howey was a yacht captain for years before he quit to spend more time with his wife. At that point he moved inland and began working at a bookstore. This book "Wool" is his debut and he wrote it over the course of 3 years before work every morning and on his lunch breaks. It was originally self-published before it was picked up by Simon and Schuster. I love author stories like this. Great book. Looking forward to the print sequels and dreading the movie that is probably going to be made.
