You may not have heard of this book yet, but I think you will soon! Its been compared to The Hunger Games and I can see why. The society depicted in Wool is oppressed like in the Hunger Games, but its not clear who by until the very end. In fact, I’m still not quite sure who’s in charge! Maybe I’ll have to read the second book (yes, its another series). I don’t normally read this type of book, but even I got sucked in and read through to the end. There were some twists and turns in the story that I really didn’t expect.

This is from the author’s website:

“This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.”

I’ve tagged this book with a heap of different genres because there’s a lot going on that I think will keep you reading until the end.
