4.5 stars to this amazing series. You'll notice that this box set only contains the first three, which is ridiculously convenient - I didn't read book four or the novella until 2016 and still loved both, which just goes to show that this series truly is amazing.

Unwind is about a world where society’s distrust for teenagers has been taken to a further extent. Instead of aborting unborn children, governments allow parents to unwind their kids at ages 13-18. Your organs will be given to people who

loved it. creepy, great writing, cohesive story, food for thought.
well worth the read for fans of the hunger games-- this is the most accurate read-a-like trilogy i've picked up yet. warning that as with hunger games, there are some disturbing parts. if you make it through book one, you're good to go.

I love how Neal made it so that the children don't die, instead they just stop living. The First book was so descriptive it made me feel like i was really in the story. Neal also had a great ending that made the transition to the second book much easier.
The second book was very intriguing as we are introduced to a completely new character Camus Comprix. Camus is a human mad up completely of other people, nighty-nine to be exact. I enjoyed how the added Starkey, a character that is as great as Co

Shusterman did a great job with this book. I wasn't happy with the second so I hesitated with this one,. Shusterman nailed it! He pulled the story together . Brought back characters from the first book. Now I'm excited for the next one. Shusterman has a way that makes the reader think twice. This is why science fiction is so ... Creepy? The topics he discusses Always are introduced with a legit newspaper article relating to the topic. We r a crazy world. U must read the series. Could this possib ...more

I loved how the hero changes and shifts and how your opinion changes of how you feel about the supposed villain. ...more

I loved these books. The concept is a little creepy and crazy but the series is amazing. The big topics in this book are abortion, stem cell research and the decline of the public school system. So while this is a young adult series it covers a lot of really big issues. I definitely recommend this collection and I wish I read a little slower, I'm upset I've finished already. ...more
