Yes, if there is one YA you should line up in your tbr, make it this one!


message 4: by Emir Never (new)

Emir Never I will read this, whoa.


message 5: by jade (new)

jade Wow. Better than The Hunger Games? And Aaron, who is a big THG fan, said the same thing in his own review of this book (chineck talaga? lol) just made me want to drop the two books I'm reading now and start reading this. Must go to the bookstore tomorrow. I just hope I find it here. *crosses fingers*

jzhunagev Huwaw!
I really like how this review ended up with you answering such questions regarding moral ambiguities of being "unwind."

You're really fueling me to read this one, after all I'm next on the pahiram-naman-ako line. Ahahaha! :D

Ariel Acupan I was so afraid that you might not like it. It was one of my fave novel. There would be a sequel to this one, Unwholly. Great job on the review. ^_^

Of course, pero kay Ace kayo magsabi. Si Ace mag-decide kung sino sa inyo ni Emir ang susunod na magbabasa! ha ha ha

Yes, Jade. This is really an awesome book! Thanks to Aaron for discovering this book for all of us! Tama ba, nauna si Aaron kay Ace?

yeah, i think nauna si Aaron na mabasa yung unwind


message 12: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely That's why I am always on the lookout for Sir Vince's review. Lately, parang wala syang mga reviews na raving for certain 5-star books!


message 13: by Tina (new)

Tina Now I can read and comment on your reviews. I agree - awesome book. :D I was a bit creeped out, but the book raises so many questions about life, family, and even God, that I can't put it down. I'm still marinating (hehe the term) on the book, but I'll write my review this weekend. :)

Rollie *covering my eyes with my hands* don't want to be spoiled.

Nice review! though I've only read the first two paragraphs of it. :)


message 15: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely It's a nice book. I will always remember this book as the one that made me trust Aaron's choices when it comes to YA books. He knows what is really nice when it comes to that genre. So, I now always read his reviews and line myself up (to borrow from Ace if possible) when I see Aaron's 5-star rating ha ha!

Thanks for the like.

Rollie No problem. :)
Yeah! I've read his reviews especially the 5-star rated ones. And I'm kinda convinced to find those books. :) So now, I'm also reading and liking his reviews. haha


message 17: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I really love this book. I feel bored too in the first half of the book but after that the pace picked up and I can't put it down. This book is one of the reasons why I am, as of now, loving dystopian novels. :D

This is the book cover of the book I read, Unwind (Unwind, #1) by Neal Shusterman. I'm quite particular with book covers, I mean sometimes they attract me to read a book.


message 18: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Thanks for the likes (for this and the other 2 reviews), Sarah.

I just borrowed a copy of this book from Ace so I had no chance to choose the cover. I agree that the cover of yours is better as it is quite scary. The cover of mine is like a cartoon drawing of doll's spare parts ha ha.

Thanks for spending time dropping a message in this thread. Looking forward to reading your reviews here in GR. I occasionally read dystopian novels so there is still a chance we can discuss and share notes. Merry Christmas!


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah The doll-parts cover made the book looked like it can be read by younger readers. Anyway, Merry Christmas too and looking forward to reading books with you.


message 20: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Yes, let's be reading buddies for "The Book Thief."

Also, I hope to see you someday in TFG meet ups.


message 21: by Meke (new)

Meke I read this about a month after finishing Mockingjay. I like the Hunger Games more, but they're so close in ranking that it doesn't matter. While both books explore how people justify committing horrible acts of violence against children, they definitely go in different directions. But read both!


message 22: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely I like this more, Meke. Thanks for taking time posting the above message.


message 23: by Amy (new)

Amy Throssell Q2: If I had a teenager daughter or son who is unwanted, will I sign him/her up for unwinding?
A: Definitely no. In fact, I don't think it is fair for anybody to be tagged as "unwanted" in the first place.

I guess that if you were used to it and it was a natural part of life, you wouldn't be so worked up about 'Unwinding' your kid. Imagine you were part of that world: You would have seen so many other people getting their kids unwound, and it wouldn't be shocking.


message 24: by Amy (new)

Amy Throssell Please don't hate on me !!!


message 25: by Sharon (new)

Sharon Amy, that's what really makes this 'story' so scary :-)


message 26: by Amy (new)

Amy Throssell Yeah :) I love these kind of books :) Like the Maze Runner (Post-Apocolyptic) And Gone too :)


message 27: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Thank you, Amy.

Sharon, I agree. :)
