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.

I think that narratively it would have been tighter with some bits left out that didn't contribute to the overall story. All along, I've been on the fence about whether this should get 3 or 4 stars. I may come back later and raise it. ( )

I read this book after I watched the TV adaption, which covers only the first half of the book. While I enjoyed reading it and learning about the story beyond what is portrayed in the TV show, I have to say that the TV show improved this in every possible way. Literally all the characters have much more depth in the TV show, and they even added a lot of plot points that just make this world way more intriguing.

It's still an enjoyable read, and I love this type of dystopian fiction. I'll continue by reading the two other books in the series to find out how the story progresses. ( )

This in an incredibly well written and well constructed dystopian novel. The characters were appealing and good, (unpleasant and unlikable characters are one of my most common reasons for putting aside a well rated sci-fi novel). While some of my concerns with the plot were never addressed, the compelling, exiting story and overall feeling of hope for the characters won me over and I am eager for the next installment. ( )

Man, I really powered through this. I read Wool before picking up the collection to finish the series. I love that it doesn't follow the typical dystopian thriller. I found myself surprised on more than one occasion through the story, which was a great change of pace. ( )

The novel has been compared with the post-apocalyptic fiction of Cormac McCarthy and Justin Cronin, and is more character-driven than conventional sci-fi.

The children were playing while Holston climbed to his death; he could hear them squealing as only happy children do.
Citater
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
He’d only ever seen a gun once, a smaller one on the hip of that old deputy, a gun he’d always figured was more for show. He stuffed a fistful of deadly rounds in his pocket, thinking how each one could end an individual life, and understanding why such things were forbidden. Killing a man should be harder than waving a length of pipe in their direction. It should take long enough for one’s conscience to get in the way.
We get no credit for being sane, do we? I get no credit, even from me. From myself. I hold it together and hold it together and I make it another day, another year.
He sounded flustered. Juliette watched him busy about the stove, his movements jerky and manic, and realized she was the one cloistered away and ignorant, not him. He had all these books, decades of reading history, the company of ancestors she could only imagine. What did she have as her experience? A life in a dark hole with thousands of fellow, ignorant savages? She tried to remember this as she watched him dig a finger in his ear and then inspect his fingernail
