Publisher's Summary

In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.

His fateful decision unleashes a drastic series of events. An unlikely candidate is appointed to replace him: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law, whose special knack is fixing machines. Now Juliette is about to be entrusted with fixing her silo, and she will soon learn just how badly her world is broken. The silo is about to confront what its history has only hinted about and its inhabitants have never dared to whisper. Uprising.

    "a better narrator would've been nice."

    The narrators character voices kinda ruined it for me. Her normal reading voice was pleasant, but the men characters were especially bad. ugh. Beyond that, it was a good story.

    "Fallout Similarities"

    Very similar to the game series Fallout. Being the gamer that I am, I was pleasantly surprised to find the two storylines so similar to one another.

    "Great narration. Compelling story!"

    the narrator's vocal inflections were very helpful lent another dimension to the story. I appreciated her ability to change her voice with the characters. This was very helpful for the audio listener. I don't read much fiction, but I found this to be a page turner and there to be much visual and emotional character to the author's writing style. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

    "LOVE the story HATE the narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wool to be better than the print version?

    I could not put this series down! I have recently developed an afinity for audio books and and thought revisiting Wool would be a listening pleasure. I was wrong. Amanda as narrator was awful. Character voices were absolutely terrible. Would NOT recommend audio version.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't stress enough how bad her voices were.

    "Good story, weak voices"

    The voices, aside from Juliette, the heroine, are all weak. I don't mean that they aren't good, I mean that all of the characters sounded weak; weasel-y for evil; oafish for shy; bumbling for quiet; lame for wise. You get the picture. Everyone but our hero was voiced as a sad sack. Even the villain. On to Shift, we'll see...

    "Audio tin-y and a little hard to listen to."

    Narrator was okay, but audio recording quality was tin-y and poor. Story was good, but the writing a little forced in attempts to be clever. Worth the listen though.

    "Good story ruined by narration."

    Title says it all. I am looking forward to the next book in the series but not with that narrator. Her natural voice was pleasant but her characters...just couldn't take it.
