Wool ~ The Book

I think this is kind of wild, so I'm sharing it.  Tonight I was having happy hour with the husband when he told me about his latest Kindle purchase.  He just bought Wool by Hugh Howey.  Actually, he bought the whole series.

So how did he stumble onto this?  He was looking for the top science fiction listings and there it was for just 99¢ a copy!  The names are great too.  The first is just entitled Wool, but then there's Wool 2 - Proper Gauge.  Moving on we come to Wool 3 - Casting Off and last, but not least Wool 4 - The Unraveling.

I have to confess that sci-fi is not my go-to genre.  I read a little now and then, but I don't seek it out.  However, it's hard not to be a little curious about this particular series.  Scrolling down to the reviews on Amazon, people are giving it high praise.  The only complaint I read is that it was too short and they wanted the story to last longer.  I may just have to borrow my husband's Kindle!

I'm with you re: SciFi, never been my thing. I do, however, love to find a good read via a friend! Let me know what you think!

Alan read the first one this morning. He says it's more like a short story. He was a little disappointed, but he's also a hard core science fiction fan so his standards are pretty high.
