Wool 3: Casting Off - Hugh Howey As with all other Wools before this, the narrative was engaging, the world building was evocative, and the plotting was deliberate. Nothing felt forced or contrived. Also, as with the previous Wools, the tone of this novella was unique. The language was more direct and deliberate, compared to the Wool 1's haunted feel or Wool 2's more reflective tone.

My only criticism is that I didn't connect with the main character as much as I did in the two previous books. Despite her hard working nature, I found her a little naive and slow to catch onto IT's devious plotting.

Overall, this was a great story and a welcome journey back into the silo. 3.5 to 4 stars for this novella, and highly recommended for sci-fi/post-apocalyptic fiction fans who are not quite yet ready to commit to a long novel.
