Wool (Wool, #1)

Wool - Hugh Howey I have a hang-up about short stories. I just don't like how little time we have to get into a character or a story. Books of short stories always seem intriguing, but after the second or third story I shift to something long-form. However, the idea of Kindle "books" that are essentially short stories turns the concept into a new format.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, albeit a short one. Mr. Howey gives us an interesting future, with a full society and a few key characters that are well-formed and worth following. Not bad for a short story.
