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.
Great book, distractingly bad reading.
The actress reading this very good book renders it almost unlistenable. Between silly voices and mispronunciations of very common words, one is constantly taken out of the world the author has worked so hard to build. An embarrassment for both the author and the actress that slaughtered his work. A real shame.
Great story, OK voice actress
I was entirely engrossed in the Wool series (eBook) during the past week while on vacation. When it came to make the 10 hour drive home, I desperately checked for an audiobook and was thrilled to find it! It made a wonderful companion on my long drive home.
The plot is a winding exciting journey and his prose is incredibly thoughtful. I actually ditched the new JK Rowling book to read Wool and couldn't have been more pleased with that decision!
Others complained about the gal reading the book and I guess that I agree. She seemed to over do it a lot and her male voices are pretty awful. She could do better. I've had similar issues in the past and this was not the worst, but not the best either.
Good read, poor reader
The story is great, but the reader’s corny voices are distracting and unnecessary. The audio mix isn’t awesome, I’m constantly turning the volume up and down to hear.
