Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.
Or you'll get what you wish for.

Best series ever
The Wool series is as good as any other piece of fiction. Really outstanding. This first one comes off a little slow, but it's necessary to set the tone for the awesomeness of the overall series. These are an absolute must read!
I couldn't put this book down. Ended up buying the omnibus edition to finish the series.
Sucked right in!
This first book is so good that i started reading the second one almost a little saddened by the change of events with the way the first one ended. But that fell away as soon as I was entranced by the characters of the second one (who I started out disliking and then loved), then got pulled through the third and riveted by the fourth and fifth. And things just get plain crazy in the fifth!
I just read all of the books- What a wonderful roller coaster this has been. Truly great and unexpected writing inside a unique story. Characters are built up so strongly to make you become attached to them so that the tiniest arrows being thrown at them feel like bullets hitting you. Their home is described in such a natural manner, woven into the story, that you feel like you know it inside and out. It just occurred to me that I need to post this review for the first book. I bought the first one on a whim- not realizing there is an omnibus version- but bought them all in sequence and read it in a week and a half. I've had some very enjoyable subway commutes as a result!
Full of characters you will love, characters you'll hate, characters that are misguided and you'll scream "no!" at, bad guys who seem sane, good guys whose intentions you begin to question... All in a post apocalyptic candy shell!
