So…well…see…what had happened was… okay so I am pretty sure that Neal Shusterman is some kind of writing god. He masterfully intertwines and builds upon each book which makes it is extremely difficult to write something here without spoiling the other books and they are too good to spoil. My post about book two was very vague but I have no talent to write something without probably giving something away. I am blown away by how magnificently Shusterman builds the Unwind story layer by layer, answering some questions while at the same time giving us new questions to pounder.
I’m wowed by this series. The initial horror that I felt in Unwind by the atrocities committed in that book haven’t left me and even when I think I can’t be more horrified by anything else in this series I’m proven wrong. Just when I have things figured out, Shusterman causes my jaw to drop.
In UnSouled, Neal Shusterman takes us through unwinding’s past. All along we believed that that the Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. But was it? When you can make people disappear, wiped out from the collective history of society, then can you make the real reason for the war disappear too? Oppenheimer did not want to become death, the destroyer of worlds but he did. “There’s a road to hell for every good intention.”
I cannot wait to start the next book and at the same time I know I will be sad that this awesomeness will come to an end. What kind of end? What is the game plan for all the characters? I have no clue, which just makes it that much more fun.
