Wool is an apocalyptic fiction set in the far-future on Earth. The characters live their lives in a 100+ story silo that’s been built entirely underground. The outside world is uninhabitable, but at times it can feel so close. Ancient cities can still be seen on the horizon. When the secrets of the silo begin to be revealed not everyone can handle the implications.
With great characters and a unique environment, I thoroughly enjoyed Wool, staying up way too late to finish it. It offers a future that’s quite a bit different from other apocalyptic fiction I’ve enjoyed. The constraints imposed on the occupants of the silo made for a great story, and I’m thoroughly looking forward to the rest of the series.
