Wool is a short novella that packs a punch. It’s fortunate that it’s a short work, because it seizes your mind and your attention. It’s fascinating, disturbing, intriguing, and will stay with you long after you swipe off your app. Like Stephen King’s The Stand, it leaves you to wonder how you would survive in such a world. The symbolism sticks. The theme sticks. It all sticks in your head.
Wool is disturbing, but it’s on a psychological level with the insinuations and insights you take from it. It’s not graphic or gory. In fact, it’s extremely well written and presented. The hype over this short piece is well deserved. I give it a 5 star review.
