Great narrator, great story. I love it when a man can write a strong female character! Within a few chapters of each section you really care about each person's life. Looking forward to listening to the second book.
I read the reviews, listened to the sample and didn't think it was that bad. But that's because I hadn't heard where she tries to do voices. Bernard? Awful! Can they just fun over those? Even a bad splice would be better than this.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Wool. I found the storyline fascinating. I am married to someone who is very into conspiracy theories and aliens. This book takes a look at what life might be like if we lived underground. It isn't a far fetched idea that we could wipe whole nations off the map and have a select number of survivors. If you have ever wondered what government might be like or what if you had to survive after most life is gone, then this book is for you.
Cons: the narrator was great with the main character. She was NOT good with supporting characters or men at all. I still think she did a fair job since there were a number of people and situations she had to narrate. Quality writing such as this deserved a male and female reader.
Despite the narration not being all that it could have been, I do highly recommend Wool. I am about the purchase Shift, the next book in the Silo Saga.
I enjoyed the story but I felt the writing left something to be desired. I agree with the other reviewers who stated that the author gave unnecessarily detailed descriptions throughout the book which cause the plot to drag.
Way too detailed in many scenes. It left me feeling annoyed to carry on. Also I think the listening experience would have been much more enjoyable if there were a couple of different voices. Way too many characters played by one voice
I know some people had a hard time with the narrator but I actually really liked her reading of this. was disappointed they got a new narrator for the next ones.
the story here is really well written and kept me listening well into the night and following day so I could finish it. I highly recommend!
The story is a good concept, but it was a bit slow for me. I did not really calmer to know what was going to happen next. I enjoyed thinking about the silo itself more than the story. I did not think narrator was bad as many others mentioned. I am going to try Shift next.
