Book: Casting Off (Wool #3)
Author: Hugh Howey
Publisher: Hugh Howey
Genre: Science Fiction
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I wasn’t as happy with the second installment of Hugh’s Wool series, but he’s brought me back on board with this particular segment. I saw a definite theme in how each segment ends, but this one more than the previous two really moved the overall plot forward. Secrets are spilling out of the bag, and more and more people in the silo are being pulled into the web. Once that happens, you know things are going to escalate quickly.
I liked Julie the mechanic-turned-Sherriff as a character. She had a no-nonsense kind of attitude that I appreciated, and a great deal of courage. She’s also analytical, which is what is needed to unravel the mysteries of the Silo and all the “whys” for their peculiar practices and laws.
Hugh moves the story forward quickly; this segment more mirrored the first segment, and I didn’t notice any lag or droops in the pacing. It pulled me right along, right into buying the next (and final) part.
