Great, Weird, & Female!
This would make a great movie!
Some people have a narrow mind when it comes to seeing the world. This book shows how we could be missing the entire point of our existence!
She does an excellent job of narrating a lot of different characters, both women and men - it was really superb.
The whole set of five short stories is a setup for a longer piece. And that's -all- they do - set up. It's very slow at first, and wandering. The piece could have used better editing.
Jules, I guess. She's the main character from book three on, and seems to be the main character for the rest of the series.
squeaky, high pitched, rarely changes between characters
Yes and no. It did get better with time, but all this set up could have -definitely- been done in half the words without losing any story.

Up near the top of my dystopian book list
city of ember with a dash of enclave
Interesting and, at least to me, a novel premise for a story.
Characters were good, and the tension and suspense enjoyable and there were also a few twists that kept things interesting.
Took a chance on this one and it paid off. Listened to the whole story over the course of a couple of days and it also cut into my beauty rest as I stayed up late one or two nights to listen.
The premise that whole societies live in Silos each their own little world was enjoyable.
Yes I could
Not very groundbreaking not particularly exciting hoped for something with a bit more bang, but still an enjoyable listen
I really dont understand all the hype about this book. The story is ok, but all the characters are flat as cardboard cutout figures. The narration itself was over dramatized with weired voices that was distracting at times and made suspension of disbelief difficult.
I think this is one of the few books that would have been better to read. I couldn't get into the story due to the narrator. The southern drawl is terrible. I also had issues with some of the characters. I can't go into detail due to spoilers.
Yes. It is a well-written, unique, exciting story that most people would enjoy
I think she did a great job bringing the characters to life. I really don't understand why several people had a problem with her narration. A solid performance.
I live every day as if it will be my last. This is why my clothes are wrinkled. Let's face it. Who wants to spend their last day on earth ironing?
The story of Wool is a post-apocalyptic tale in the tradition of the leaky future where technology exists alongside faulty plumbing. It is a world similar to those in movies like Brazil, Twelve Monkeys or Blade Runner, yet more claustrophobic
Minnie Goode's reading is almost theatrical. She does a really good job with conveying things like breathlessness and pain.
This book has made me reevaluate my opinions about self-published books. It is easy to understand how avid fans convinced the author to expand on the original story. Howey is a natural storyteller who describes this fictional world so fully and so well, that editing would not have improved much on the story.
I originally bought this as a Kindle Deal of the Day, then added the Audible version and Whispersync for voice.
