Started reading Wool last night

It's OK, not quite the "best sci fi book ever" like the reviews would have you believe. The original book is pretty good. Reads like an episode of the twilight zone. The second one is dragging a bit.

I like sci-fi and dystopian novels. Reading Arthur C. Clarke's books right now. What is 'Wool' about?

It's a cross between 1984 and city of embers.
