    Loved this book

    I don't ususally pick up short stories, but this one looked interested. I sat down and in what felt like 15 minutes was done, but when I looked at the clock it had been a full hour. It's rare that I find a book that pulls me in so completely that I lose track of time. I bought the omnibus edition that same night and picked up where I left off and loved the next 4 books every bit as much.

    Window washing angst

    This is avery internal story about how a closed community gets their windows to the world washed. Those elected or condemned to the effort do not come back. After hundreds of years in their contained environment, conditioned to confinement, yet claustrophobic, how do members of this community get the job, and why do they carry it through with such integrity? There is more to it than our hero Holston knows. His wife, self elected to the task previously, thought she had the answers. Holston follows in her footsteps, trying to retreive the knowledge that drove her. Conspiracy once again results in a clear view of the outside. Where or when do defiance, motivation, theory and delusion trump conformity, sense, and sobriety? Will it be now?

    Too short

    Really enjoyed this short story. The only negative thing I have to say about this was that it was, in fact, a SHORT story! I really wanted more.

    Great Read That Leaves You Wanting More

    Oh. My. Gosh. This short story is fantastic. The first sentence draws you in and the last sentence refuses to let you go. I will definitely be reading the next segment.

    I am not into this genre but am so glad I read these books! I kept thinking how realistic this seemed even though it is science fiction. Some books are way too far fetched for me but this one is emotional and I promise it will keep you on your feet! Twists, turns and surprises!

    It's ONLY 38 pages NOT 508 as is stated in the product description!!!

    It's a pretty good story so far...but I wouldn't have purchased it if I knew it was only 38 pages!!! You're better off just buying the Wool Omibus Edition that contains all 5 books!

    Excellent! Go straight to the Omnibus that has all the books. Hard to put down!

    Read the omnibus version with all the books very fast. Hard to put down. Great characters. After you finish this series, go striiaght to Shift and read all of them. It is a prequel sequel!

    Wonderful stuff

    Everything thats great about dystopian science fiction in a tight little package. Calls to mind some of the darker short works of Ursula K. Leguin. Recommended!

    I may be obsessed....

    I had no expectations.when I picked this book. I didn't even realize it was a series in one book. I read ALOT and this seemed like a quick read to get me through the night. I loved this book! I was drawn down into their world almost immediatley. Characters were rich and full... ahhhh..loved them.
    Only problem was in purchasing I didn't realize it was the full Wool series. I rushed through believing there was more. I said goodbye too soon thinking I'd have more time with them all. I can only assume the next book will be as wonderful.
    Thanks for being my new favorite author!
