In a ruined and hostile landscape, in a future few have been unlucky enough to survive, a community exists in a giant underground silo.
Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies.
To live, you must follow the rules. But some don’t. These are the dangerous ones; these are the people who dare to hope and dream, and who infect others with their optimism.
Their punishment is simple and deadly. They are allowed outside.
Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last. (From: Goodreads)

😵 DNF @p. 100 😵
The children were playing while Holston climbed to his death; he could hear them squealing as only happy children do.
As I mentioned before, my memory is deteriorating. I don’t remember when exactly I bought this Silo trilogy. Probably in 2015, or maybe in 2014 when I didn’t even start to read English novels. I bought them all at the same time because their covers were so gorgeous. Tis was the time when I was a huge cover-buyer.
Yes. That’s right. I DNF this book at 100th page. I don’t normally read big books. Hell I don’t even have many big books on my shelves. (Listen, A Song Of Ice And Fire lovers! I really really admire you. How could you finish books with a thousand pages!??) I’m okay with big books with big font like Cassandra Clare’s books. However, I suck at reading books with small font. They give me headaches. Also, I have to protect my eyes. When I actually finish a big book with small font, I’ll let you know my great accomplishment.
So…the thing about this Wool is that…it’s really really slow-paced. It was so slow that I didn’t even have the energy to want to know more about this story. The writing is four-star, but the plot is just…so freaking slow.
It’s a book like those survival dystopian stuff. However, I’ve grown out of that book genre. I didn’t like it. I recommend to anyone who is interested in that kind of stories.
Hope you have a lovely reading time. Goodbye!
