I really really enjoyed this book! I listen to a lot of books and listen to a fair amount of science fiction. I enjoyed incorrectly anticipating plot twists. It is a clever book with great characters and a unique story. I couldn't stop listening actually. The story is refreshing and creative. In other member reviews the narrator was found lacking. I felt her voice was in keeping with the "temperature" of the story. The overall narration was good and did not keep me from enjoying the story. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who loves science fiction.
Each story in the series made their world more real. The author did a masterful job.
The suspense was excellent. Anybook that I can listen to while in the gym is fantastic.
I wanted to write this when I saw that the "Performance" rating was low for this book. Minnie Goode did an excellent job. Her voices were great and the pace was very good.
I love stories and traveling in a world beyond my own. I write them, read them, view them and now listen to them!
Wool is definitely an experience and a novel I assume will by in the roulette wheel of possible movie/TV show in its future. The story is one that keeps the outside reader knowing what kind of world they are living in.
Wool gives off the feeling of seclusion and apocalypse minus the cataclysm of a lot of fighting and/or zombies. All around a very well written book and keeps you engaged with each and every aspect we take for granted.
After at least 7 hours of this I just couldn't take it anymore . The poor women reading is not good . Kills the whole thing . Cool premise , probably a good read , but this sucks .
A great original story line which is a very interesting start to a series. I enjoyed the Narrator with the exception of the whispering. I usually listen to audio books in the car and have the volume up fairly loud to drown out the road noise. When the book called for whispering her volume dropped so low it was almost impossible to hear. I found myself rewinding a lot and turning up the volume all the way up to catch what was whispered and then get rewarded by very loud normal voice when the whispering part is over.
A friend of mine recommended it to me, and now I'm going to have to owe her one... now I'm moving onto the next books in the series.
I thought the book was pretty good. Interesting story and characters. I wanted to give 3.5 overall but since there are no .5 I gave 4 instead of 3.
Other reviews complained about the performance but I thought it was ok. Her narration voice and juliets voice were great. Others were so so. Her male voice sounded like boys trying to imitate adults.
Before buying the audiobook I read the reviews and was worried about the quality of the narrator, as it is a common complaint. However, I had no problem with Minnie, I loved the voices and the pacing and was never distracted from the story by narration.
