This book is worse than her oter books, although I still think it is very good. I liked the story a lot. It's just that Sharon put a lot of things in the story, but didn't explain them all. It gives me a headache when I think and wonder about too many things. This book had many great parts in it. I loved it. I really really did. But when I got to the end of the book, the last page, I though, "Wow, was she really in such a hurry to inish this book?" I think Sharon should've dragged the end along a little bit. I was so convinced the story was still going that I didn't notice that the last page was near! I thought there was still a lot to say from Sharon.
I liked this book a lot, but the ending wasn't very good. :)(less)

I was only saying that ^ to say that I'm dumb for not understanding. Neal Shusterman is a great author. His books are amazing!
Unwind is set in the future. Shusterman makes that clear by saying there were i-pods in an ancient and old shop. His Idea of Unwinding is a great idea that most of us in the world wouldn't have really thought of. You can't deny that. Great imagination.
Now, this book isn't my favourite book. To be honest, while I was in the middle of the book, I thought it was quite boring. I just wanted to finish it quickly so I could get started back on the Harry Potter series. Don't get me wrong though, this book was really good.
I found it surprising that when the Admiral said that he was (view spoiler)[Admiral Dunfee, nobody noticed it was Dunfee, which obviously meant that he was Humphrey Dunfees dad. (hide spoiler)] I can't believe I didn't notice that either!
Unwind is a book I would recommend to most people that would care to listen. Or look. So if you like Adventure mystery or anything else kind of like that I really would recommend this book to you. ;)

I think the second book really sucked. I found myself hating Fireheart, the main character, because of how he always makes the wrong decisions, how he never gets punished, how he worries so much about every tiny problem or move that tigerclaw makes, how he's such a perfect fighter sometimes, how he's always assuming things (I actually really don't like people like that in real life), how he's always getting into other people's business, how he thinks he's so special that he can do anything, how he knows that Bluestar likes him, how Bluestar likes him after every stupid thing he's done wrong, how he's got a really bad temper sometimes.
Wow, the list can really go on.
The main things that annoyed me were:
-How worried Fireheart is about everything -How Fireheart always thinks Tigerclaw is trying to kill some cat.
At the end of every chapter, there is always, always, a sentence saying, "Did Bla Bla really bla bla? I really didn't care about the problem that Fireheart was making such a big thing. Say, there was some girl in your class who doesn't like you, and she accidentally knocked your sharpener over and said sorry genuinely. Now, if you were Fireheart in that situation, you would grumpily pick up your sharpener and then worry about her next attempt at killing you. He would ask the reader, Was that just an accident? Or was she trying to kill Fireheart?
I think Erin Hunter could've done much better endings than that.
The next thing is how Fireheart always thinks Tigerclaw is trying to kill someone, or setting a trap to kill Bluestar or Cinderpaw or whoever the hell he was calling over. It might have just been a coincident, or an accident. Sometimes I think that if 3 mice were missing from the pile of freshkill, Fireheart would somehow make himself believe it was Tigerclaw's fault. It's not really Tigerclaw's fault that he hates you, you're just that annoying.
When I read this book, I kept seeing hints of things that happened in the first book. I get SO annoyed when authors do that. It's anyone's common sense to read the books in order, so don't waste the space on the paper saying what you've already said. I also felt like Fireheart was just normal and a pretty stupid cat, and all the other cats are so much better than him but somehow he's just special and the cats like him.
