As a SciFi novel it is up there with the best I have ever read. It has great characters, an intriguing and ever developing plot and a quality of writing that paints picture in your mind.
I can't agree that there are lot's of complaints about dystopian SciFi. There are a handful of people here who have been vocal about it but that does not make them right. It is all opinion and it seems a lot of people share the same opinion of not only Wool but Hugh's other writing.
