Hugh Howey's "Wool: The Graphic Novel"
The world outside has grown unkind, and talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who dream, who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside. Learn more

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Some were very good, thought provoking. New ideas or different takes on older ideas.
Others were meh, at best.
A few, in the name of PC/inclusiveness tried to put those aspects into their stories. If the stories were longer, that aspect may of added something in character development or relationship interaction.
Unfortunately, for the most part, it did little or nothing to help the story. One story was very good right up to the end . . . and then the author added a PC/inclusive line, that did nothing for the story at all, and all I could say was, "Really?"

Overall loved it and can't wait of for the next one to find out what happens in the stories.
After a while it gets a bit tiring, reading about the the world about to end, over and over again.
Every author in this series is a great writer. It's all wheat, no chaff. I started this series with book Two somehow and have no read the excellent book One. Last time I looked book Three was not available on the Kindle. I sure hope that has changed as this series is spectacular. It is highly recommended and I rate it 4.8 Stars.
Non c'è storia postapocalittica che non abbia accennato ai nefasti eventi che hanno preceduto la distopia.
Ma non c'era ancora stata un'antologia su questo genere che affrontasse solo e solamente il PRIMA, quella catena lunga o breve di eventi, di coincidenze, di errori umani, o semplice fato che doveva portare ad un punto solo.
La fine di tutto.
Oltre 300 pagine che in questa accurata antologia selezionano ogni modo in cui dobbiamo prepararci a dire addio, chiederci non dove eravamo quando successe, ma dove saremo quando succederà. Cosa fare per rendere l'ultimo giorno il più bello, nelle piccole cose o nelle scelte più difficili.
Tanto, non ci sarà un domani.
My favourite of the stories is "The Balm and the Wound" by Robin Wasserman, who manages to create a viewpoint character who is both a credible and at least partly likeable religous conman who finds he has accidentally pinpointed the date of an apocalypse for his religious community. The story also provides a convincing identification of the emotional benefits that a religion can provide, even when it has been invented by a human. (I am an agnostic by the way, so praise from me of this kind is a major complement to the author.)
