Unwind by Neal Shusterman Book Review


Unwind (Unwind Trilogy #1)
by Neal Shusterman
Published November 6, 2007 by Simon & Schuster
335 pages

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: LIfe is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end.

Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state, is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to espace and to survive.


Unwind is a story about this dystopian world where an agreement has been reached between the Pro-Life and the Pro-Choice -- and the solution is called Unwinding. You cannot end someone's life, but after a certain age, you can elect to have your child unwound -- where their body parts will be taken and given to those in need. It's not necessarily terminating life -- or at least that's what the government say. In this story you meet three distinct characters -- all have been marked for unwinding and all on the run.

I had been hearing great things about this book and I've been dying to read it and it was phenomenal! It definitely lived up to the expectations that I had set for it. It was one of the most thought provoking, intriguing and powerful books that I've read in a long time. There were points at which I had to stop reading and literally contemplate what was going on and the discussions they were having in the book. It was so deep and incredibly controversial. I think everyone should read it whether or not you have a clear standing on this issue. I think that it's a work of brilliance.

It was fast paced and I loved seeing the story not just switching between the main character's lives but through other smaller characters as well. Ones you only knew for a scene or for the time they were narrating. It gave you a full immersion and view of this dystopia. The book was so good I flew through it in one day -- a couple of hours really.

The characters were so intense and I love Neal Shusterman's writing. The way he builds everything up with so many small details you didn't think were important, and then connecting everything in the end for a mind blowing ending is simply amazing. I was stunned and taken by surprise. It was so enthralling. It definitely makes me want to read not only the next one in this series but his other books as well.

Highly recommend this book.

My rating: 5/5
Buy it:  Barnes & Noble  or  Amazon

Happy Reading!!
