    1 thought on “Unwind”

    1. I was walking back from my playgroup with my son on Monday, I came out of an elevator to find a teenage boy waiting for me. Fear and an urge to protect my son came over me as he looked a little "rough" around the edges.Instead of pulling a knife or picking a fight though, the teenager turned on me with big, embarrassed, doe-eyes to ask in a quivering voice, "Excuse me, can I please have fifty cents to call my mum?" I fished out fifty cents worth of coins and left as soon as I saw him head toward [...]

    2. Holy frak-waffles Batman!! This is awesome. At first I was like: but then I was like: and THEN I was all like:during that scene where they (view spoiler)[UNWOUND HIS BRAINS WHILE HE WAS AWAKE! (hide spoiler)] I still have the major heebeejeebs. I will never eat cauliflower again.Unwind will shock you. I mean, roll-you-up-in-a-carpet-and-bitch-slap-you kind of shock you.

    3. As seen on The ReadventurerI approached rereading Unwind with trepidation. I generally enjoy revisiting books in series before each new release, but two reasons held me back in this case:1) My original reading of Unwind left me completely horrified and I wasn't sure I would want to relive this story again (my husband is still too scared to revisit it); and2) Unwind was one of the very first books I read when I had just discovered YA back in 2009, and it was also one of my very first dystopias. I [...]

    4. An astonishing and at the same time disturbing read. Took me some time to get into, but from then on I was hooked. The world Shusterman created feels so vivid and real, it almost scared me. Thought-provoking and highly original. I haven't read anything like this ever before.Also, it contained one of the most disturbing scenes I have ever read - not on a graphic level, but more due to the fact that what exactly is happening is left almost completely to the reader's imagination (if you've read the [...]

    5. I've been asked why I keep reading young adult books when I hate some of them. I hate some ways of preparing chicken too, but I'll eat it.This book is a reason why I keep reading young adult. It's the fried chicken of the book world.There has been a war recently. A war based on reproduction rights.On one side, people were murdering abortion doctors to protect the right to life, while on the other side people were getting pregnant just to sell their fetal tissue. And everyone was selecting their [...]

    6. Of late, we've seen the YA dystopia trend grow to dizzying heights. Many like to bleat that every post-apocalyptic adventure published within the last year is trying to grab the success of The Hunger Games, just as we've all assumed that authors of YA paranormal romance are trying to jump on the Meyer bandwagon. We're being conditioned to accuse every dystopian author of being a scammer, and every book (before we've even read it and discovered that no, it doesn't have anything to do with Collin' [...]

    7. I've been letting this book process in my mind for many days now and I still don't know where to start. This is an older book, one that has been held in highest regards by many for almost a decade now, so whenever I read a book like this I feel awkward and useless writing a review. What could I possibly say to do this book justice that hasn't been said yet? I'm not even sure there are words to describe just how undone this book made me feel. It's rare that I find myself emotionally involved in a [...]

    8. You are not going to believe me, but I came to this book with open arms. It survived weeks of cuts and call-backs to become one of the final six books that were carefully wrapped in pajamas before being placed in the suitcase and flown to Switzerland. I only take books I am confident I’ll love on vacation. Well, given the length of this trip, space constraints, and my mercurial ways, they also had to be relatively thin, paperback, and fast-paced, but you get my point. Alas, from the very first [...]

    9. This is the most disturbing book I’ve ever read. I'm torn here, struggling whether to recommend this book or shout to you never to pick up this book because you will not sleep again! I mean it! This is a horror, thriller dystopian and I cannot say (loud enough) that this is not a book for everyone. I don’t often stereotype books by saying “if you like this-and-that then you will love this book”. I believe you need to read a book before you can say you hate it. But, honestly, I think you [...]

    10. In a dystopian near future, teenagers Connor and Risa are sentenced to be unwound. When their paths cross with a tithe named Lev, they flee the world they know and become fugitives. But how long can they run before the past catches up with them?Imagine a world where abortion is illegal but it's perfectly acceptable to have disagreeable children unwound, that is, disassembled and their organs given to waiting recipients, when they are between the ages of 13 and 18? That's the basic premise behind [...]

    11. I am definitely going to try and take a step back from the ledge here, because I fully realize that I may be the only person on the planet who didn’t enjoy this book. I just finished, so the absolute fury is still fresh, but I think that once it cools, I will be able to say that yeah, this book isn’t so bad. In fact I think that it’s incredibly average in every way. I would give this to a young-un in a heartbeat. It’s fast paced with just a dash of romance, and it will probably initiate [...]

    12. First of all, lemme thank the Huffington Post and people I respect on for leading me to this book. I googled "best dystopian novels of all time in the world ever" or something along those lines (I'm not the best googler in the world) and HuffPo was one of the links I clicked on, and this book was on the list, and I recognized the cover, and I was a little skeptical but read some reviews, and one thing led to another, yada yada yadaAnd this was a really thrilling, thought-provoking piece of youn [...]

    13. Page one, I'm iffy. Pro-life and Pro-choice fight a civil war and the only way to satisfy both armies is the agreement that no abortions take place but from the ages of thirteen to eighteen any child can be unwound and his or her divided body and soul be used as organ donation? First off, pro-choice isn't going to go for a woman sacrificing her body through pregnancy and raising a child thirteen years before she can dispose of it. And pro-life isn't going to go for the termination of a child who [...]

    14. this is a great book to use as a springboard for discussions about reproductive rights and governmental responsibility and what kind of world we are creating and leaving to the next generation.but i'm just going to talk about me. cuz i am a very laissez-faire individual, and i live my life like i am reading a book someone else is writing, and i am just tuning in to see where it all goes, and any discussion of this sort always leads to conflicts, and i think has enough of those, yeah?i am of two [...]

    15. This is one of those books that once I finished it, I started it over and read the whole thing over again. And even after that, there were parts of it that I kept re-reading and thinking about. Before I go into my long review, I wanted to just mention that this book had one of the most nightmarish and horific scenes that I have ever read in my life. It contained almost no details at all, and none of the sparse details were graphic or gory. And that made it even scarier. My imagination provided m [...]

    16. Final rating: 6/5 starsUnwind by ~graysideThis book deserves more than just 6 stars. It deserves 10! This is my ultimate fav young adult and it was one of the most amazing and emotional reads. It's a roller coaster of emotions and don't read it if you don't wish for your heart to shatter, or if you don't wish for your heart to be cut out. Because that's how i felt while reading this. But - in every darkness, there is light, and even if this book might seem quite grim, it was balanced. Because it [...]

    17. Thanks to a medical procedure known as "neurografting," colloquially called unwinding, every harvested organ and body part of a teenager can be used on another person's body. Stealing kiddies' fingers and brains is a whole industry. Few believe it's wrong. Some don't even believe it's death. Unwind is the story of three teenagers who have been signed up for unwinding by parents or guardians. They're unwanted, someone can't afford them, or they're a religious "tithing"/sacrifice to God. Through t [...]

    18. This was super fast paced with likable characters! This dystopian world is one of the creepiest I have read! I received a copy of this book from a Quarterly Literary Box quarterly/products/literar Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress/20

    19. Reto #5 Pop Sugar 2017: Un libro escrito por una persona de color¡Brutal! Una distopía con una premisa terrible: una sociedad futurista en que la ley protege la vida hasta los 13 años, castigando fuertemente el aborto, pero que permite que entre los 13 y 18 años los jóvenes puedan ser desconectados. A pesar de toda la propaganda del sistema, que enmascara esta desconexión como una nueva forma de existencia –con un propósito elevado para adolescentes conflictivos–, no es más que un [...]

    20. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/“What does it take to unwind the unwanted? It takes twelve surgeons, in teams of two, rotating in and out as their medical specialty is needed. It takes nine surgical assistants and four nurses. It takes three hours.”If you are at all familiar with my reviews, you’re probably well aware that I’m a “big meany” when it comes to doling out 1 Stars and super stingy when it comes to granting 5s. I’m here to tell you that Unwind knocked my damn so [...]

    21. If you have read or follow me on anything then you know I have a terrible fear of having my organs harvested THIS BOOK IS WHY!!! It has taken me a very long time to build up the nerve to talk about this book. It really freaked me out that much. The concept of Unwinding is truly terrifying. It's not like you went to the dmv and checked the organ donor box thinking "yeah Ill give my organs up, I'll be dead what do I care what happens to them" No, this is about having them taken while you're still [...]

    22. Finished my re-read! It's been eight years since I read this book for the first time (damn, that makes me feel old). In my original review, I stated that this story would "haunt me forever," and I was definitely right about that. Even after all these years, there were a lot of scenes that I still remembered vividly. But there were also many details I'd forgotten. And there were also a lot of powerful themes that I think went over my head when I was younger, so I'm glad I decided to re-read it.Al [...]

    23. This book is disturbing and just holy crow! These people think it's okay to unwind their children if they don't want them or if they are bad kids. And what is unwinding you ask? It's where they take all of your body parts, EVERY SINGLE ONE, and use them for other people. AND your body parts are still a part of you, but only your brain can still think inside of another body but the parts can still do things the other kid did, like playing an instrument etc. --->EXCERPT<---"See, brain bits w [...]

    24. It’s impossible to understand other people. It’s impossible to understand ourselves most of the time.At the very beginning, I honestly wasn’t buying the story. I just couldn’t understand parents who would get rid of their child and celebrate by going on a cruise. I should have known better. Our belief systems, morals, cultural conventions, laws… they didn’t just pop out of nothing. They are so deeply ingrained into our society that we never doubt most of them. People, we're sheep! I [...]

    25. What a horrible, horrible dystopian vision Neal Shusterman presents us with in Unwind!A horrible vision which I found utterly unrealistic in the beginning. I just couldn’t imagine parents having their children "dismantled" because of bad behavior or better say, I couldn’t imagine a society accepting this gruesome procedure as common. After a while, though, I started thinking and considering our history and what people already did let happen, as well as the gruesome things that are still happ [...]

    26. “In a perfect world everything would be either black or white, right or wrong, and everyone would know the difference. But this isn't a perfect world. The problem is people who think it is.” In a dystopian world where children after they reach the age of thirteen, they find themselves in the peril of getting unwound, Connor, Risa & Lev are coming face to face with that very same danger. The parents of every child decide whether one will get unwound or live. What unwinding is?Pro-lifers a [...]

    27. 3.5/5 starsI really enjoyed this book! I didn't LOVE it and I didn't really really like it - had some issues - but overall was pretty great.It raises some very important issues about human life and the importance of it, as well as many other things.A lot of the plot seemed all over the place to me, and the world building was not really great. I had some issues with how religion was presented (though those issues corrected themselves at the end so YAY GO UNWIND!)I really grew to like the characte [...]

    29. There are nearly 5,000 reviews of this book on GR, and the official synopsis explains clearly what is meant by the term ‘Unwind’. So, I am going to assume that those who read this are familiar with the basic premise. If not, that’s okay - some of the context will be evident here. But it is much easier to review this without major spoilers if I don’t try to tap-dance around the basics.This book certainly deserves its legion of fans, and could become a phenomenal movie. I strongly recommen [...]
