First of all, this is not a book about yarn, knitting, crocheting, sheep or anything even closely related to making woolen garments.
Secondly, I did not buy this book believing it had anything to do with any of the aforementioned. This book was actually recommended to me by a friend. A male friend to be precise. One who has probably never even tried his hand at knitting.
Thirdly: this is a sci-fi novel set in a dystopian world.
And finally: this might just be the best book I've read in a long time.
I've been such a lazy reader ever since I fell pregnant. Usually I've been such an evening person but at the moment it feels like I'm already sound asleep even before my head hits the pillow. Some nights I've tried to fight the tiredness but only managed to read a page or two before my eyelids have started to feel way too heavy.
The lazy Easter holiday mornings gave me the perfect opportunity to catch up on my reading and this morning I finally finished this book I started already before Christmas.
For you knitters, if you still feel confused: The name Wool probably comes from deception like in the saying "pulling wool over one's eyes" rather than the actual sense of the word, even though there are some other knitting related remarks such as naming the parts of the book things like "Proper Gauge", "Casting Off" and "The Unraveling".
This is one of those books that you can't really say anything about without spoiling the story for others. So I won't. If you want to read reviews go to Amazon or Goodreads. But remember, the book is written in such a way that I would recommend discovering the story yourself and not ruining it with spoilers.
Oh, one more thing: the book ends in such a way that you might want to have the sequel waiting beside you!
