“Wool 2- Proper Gauge” by Hugh Howey
Genre: Adult Fiction, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Summary from Goodreads:
A cleaning has been performed, and now the silo is without a sheriff. With only one good candidate available, Mayor Jahns and Deputy Mames set off for the Down Deep to recruit her in person. Along the way, they discover much about each other, troubling news about this candidate, and stumble upon fractured alliances that could spell the doom of a silo they’ve worked long years to protect.
I guess this story is the obvious option after how Wool ended but I liked that we had a different set of characters this time around. It would be fun to do that for each book. It’s all in the same world. Seeing how things are for different people who live in different areas and have different lives is a great way to build a world.
As for the actual story, it was a bit boring. The whole thing is just two people walking down the silo and then back up. Sure the story fills in some blanks in the world but it’s not terribly exciting. I was hoping for a bit more exciting and interesting story.
The bottom line? It was fine. I’ll be continuing with the series.
