I haven't read them yet, but I must admit that I am somewhat skeptical because of all the hype surrounding the series. Books like that usually overpromise and underdeliver.
I've read 1-5 and the hype is not overblown. It's right on and the stories are very good. Out 4,328 ratings, The Wool Omnibus
has 4.48 stars out of 5 on Goodreads. People on MR who have read this also enjoyed it.
Face it, it's as good as it's said to be. So buck up, get the Omnibus and read away.
