Its definitely not wool even if it is Post apocalyptic. its coming from a very different angle.
Sand for me is actually a lot darker than the Silo Trilogy which I felt always had a certain under current of hope . Sand is much bleaker and mostly shows humanity at its worst .
For all that its a damned good read and the main characters are accessible and likeable in different ways. Each of the siblings carries different qualities and are interesting for it.
The meetings between the main players are as interesting as the setting for this story.
Don’t read It because you want a Wool fix .
Read it because its a fantastic dark post apocalyptic book which stands by itself.
Well worth reading (although I think UK and related territories might have to wait a while ).
Loved it and look forward to what Hugh can come up with next.
