This book exemplified the good and bad in humanity by brining to life a tale of struggle.
It took me a while to get into this audiobook. At first I didn't like the narrator at all. I have no idea why something about it wasn't right. I stuck with it though and after about 1 -2 hours she just really worked for it. Overall I really enjoyed this audiobook.
Complex story took some time to get into it, maybe a little more verbose than I would have liked, but was worth it as the story evolved nicely. Narrator gets a lot of credit for the various voices she used well to differentiate characters.
I really enjoyed the story. It starts slow, but once it got going it was hard to stop listening. Looking forward to the next book in the series. The narrator is very good except when she's doing male voices. Male voices were very flat, lacking emotion.
Wool takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, and deals with the central idea of a society following rules without questioning their purpose. This is not a new concept by any stretch, and even reminded me of a 2013 movie I saw recently called Snowpiercer in a lot of ways.
Still, I couldn't help becoming invested in the characters' search for truth, no matter how fatalistic the quest seemed at times. I'll continue with Howey's "Shift Omnibus" in the near future.
I new this would be good but I was pleasantly surprised that it exceeded my expectation. Some clues I understood early on but the rest had my mind running in circles with nowhere to go. I want to read the rest of the series. I just hope they don't try to top this one. 😉
Great, but the narrator spoke Lucas' parts in an artificial voice that grates on the nerves.
