Buddy Read reread with my peeps at Buddies Books and BaublesShusterman is one of my favorite YA writers He writes in such an engaging and imaginative way The alternating PoVs each have a different voice and the glimpses into the minds of even the bad characters gives immense insight into their motivations I liked this just as much the second time through and it still holds strong as my favorite YA series to date Well done Mr Shusterman, well done.Even if you aren t a fan of YA or only give few YA series a try I highly recommend this well thought out series.Original Review July 20134.5 StarsAnger is only our friend when we know its caliber and how to aim itUnwind left me reeling with complicated horrible ideas and shocking moments that really stick with you The unwinding of Roland left me torn because he was such a horrible person but unwinding was so horrible and to witness it step by step was one of the most heartbreaking things in the book That said Unwholly didn t have many moments like that for me Perhaps that is because how shocked and appalled can you get after Unwind Unwholly was about how a revolution begins stalls and tries to pick back up It is about finding your place in the world and dealing with the consequences of actions both yours and others Finding the truth about the past and trying to use that to build a future Connor is stuck running the Graveyard he has so many responsibilities and no time for anyone including Risa He hasn t come to terms with having Roland s arm and is so afraid that he will hurt Risa with it he is avoiding her The anger in him is building but he is trying to keep everyone safe The juvies know where the graveyard is and are just waiting for an excuse to take it down for parts.Risa is trying to get through to Conner but he has built up so many walls She ends up in a precarious position as Cam the first person made from all unwind parts brings her into his life Risa is trying to save the Graveyard but as she gets to know Cam she can see he is just as much a victim as everyone else in the Unwind game Risa and Conner struggle in this book but I love that they never really seem to give up on one another no matter if they are together or apartThe sad truth about humanity, Risa was quick to realize, is that people believe what they re told maybe not the first time, but by the hundredth time, the craziest of ideas just become a givenStarkey is a sociopath, but he is a sociopath with a cause Being storked as a baby he wants to save all the other storked kids But unlike Conner he is willing to sacrifice anyone and everyone else in his way Starkey was the most disturbing thing in this book The lengths and deceptions he was willing to go to were horrifying Is he what the government has finally made to go against the system or is he part of the reason why the system is in place to begin with But the break out character was Lev I loved Lev in this book The insights he had and fumbling to find a new role in life had moments of both joy and heartbreak Lev sees the role he played in some of the changes that came after he didn t clap, but they didn t turn out as he had hoped He really wants to make a difference but where to begin Now there is an organization abducting tithes in his name and treating him like he is the second coming As Lev tries to save Miracolina from sacrificing herself to be a tithe you see the redemption he desperately is seeking for himself It was so touching his story really inspired me.Like Unwind this took off quickly and kept going There was not a lot of down time something was always happening The shifting POVs make the story three dimensional Seeing into the mind of the Cam and Starkey were the most disturbing for completely different reasons While Unwholly shifted gears and changed themes the plot and story are so good you can t help but be riveted I can t wait to see how things resolve in Unsouled I will say well worth the five year wait in between Unwind and Unwholly. Is it possible to get a heart attack from reading a book Because these books should come with a warning label Unsuitable for readers of weak constitution I am blown away What the hell else can I say about Neal Schusterman by now This was a worthy sequel to an already phenomenal start There wasn t a single moment of boredom and what makes it even of an epic read Aside from the winning plot, that is The characters I can t get over how utterly fascinating, incredibly fleshed out and well written each character is In awe I m in awe of his writing The thought and care that goes into his characters and the way every loose thread brilliantly interweaves at the exact perfect moment Damn @Download ⚷ UnWholly Ø It S Finally Here The Long Awaited Sequel To The Bestselling Unwind, Which Publishers Weekly Called A Gripping, Brilliantly Imagined Futuristic Thriller Thanks To Connor, Lev, And Risa And Their High Profile Revolt At Happy Jack Harvest Camp People Can No Longer Turn A Blind Eye To Unwinding Ridding Society Of Troublesome Teens While Simltaneously Providing Much Needed Tissues For Transplant Might Be Convenient, But Its Morality Has Finally Been Brought Into Question However, Unwinding Has Become Big Business, And There Are Powerful Political And Corporate Interests That Want To See It Not Only Continue, But Also Expand To The Unwinding Of Prisoners And The ImpoverishedCam Is A Product Of Unwinding Made Entirely Out Of The Parts Of Other Unwinds, He Is A Teen Who Does Not Technically Exist A Futuristic Frankenstein, Cam Struggles With A Search For Identity And Meaning And Wonders If A Rewound Being Can Have A Soul And When The Actions Of A Sadistic Bounty Hunter Cause Cam S Fate To Become Inextricably Bound With The Fates Of Connor, Risa, And Lev, He Ll Have To Question Humanity ItselfRife With Action And Suspense, This Riveting Companion To The Perennially Popular Unwind Challenges Assumptions About Where Life Begins And Ends And What It Means To Live WHOA I was always hoping there would be a sequel to Unwind that ending was just too open ended , but now that it s confirmed that there will be one Oh my goodness, I m so excited, and I know nothing about the plot twists, turns, and suspense, of course , the timeframe taking place a few months or YEARS after the first book , or the characters same cast or not That is definitely the mark of a GREAT first book if I m wondering about the sequel even YEARS before it may see print Anyway I love the word play with this title UnWholly Now, the obvious play comes from how it is a homonym to unholy like actions that are despicable, horrendous, and sinful like how the process of unwinding itself can be perceived On the flip side, though, wholly means completely so unwholly would be incompletely.like someone s body, mind, and soul after he she has been unwound Those are the pathways MY mind takes with the title, though I just love it So inventive.Neal Shusterman, you are very gifted Oh yes indeed I very much look forward to this sequel Here s hoping you transcend even your own high bar and soar to make us readers all awed and amazed. Words don t hurt you Which is one of the hugest criminal lies perpetrated by adults against children in this world Because words hurt than any physical painNot as perfect as the first book in the series but still pretty good for a follow up if you ask me Shusterman did justice to the characters, new and old ones alike So the book picks up from where it left in book one when Connor was left in charge of the Whollies The book kicks it off with a new character, Starkey, who I m sure you ll find pretty easy to dislike Apart from Lisa and Lev who are still part of the story, we have some new characters accompanying each of our main characters journeys What I loved about this book was that each main character had their own adventure in this one, it really made things intriguing Especially, seing how every piece came down together as one Maybe a reason why I didn t give this a 5 star rating is because I would have liked back bone story Still, this was really good and I enjoyed immensely every second of it and if you loved the first book then you re sure as hell going to like this one as well.What s , Mr Shushterman didn t forget a very important detail that character development is really signifacant to having a great story Connor, Risa and Lev, they are all conscious of their actions, they have matured, seeing a greater picture other than just themselves Now, I won t lie that I had my concerns about this series when I had read the first book because I thought that because of the sensitive subject it breaches, it could get bad real fast Thankfully, that s not the case. I felt about UnWholly the way I felt about this season of True Blood.I kid and shamelessly take advantage of any opportunity to use an Alexander Skarsgard gif But for the majority of the season, I was banging my head against the wall and yelling, Stop trying to make Arlene happen And I m pretty sure ifrit is Arabic for waste of fucking time But then just when I m ready to wipe my hands of the show, it finally wraps up the extraneous storylines and gives me what I really care about Eric, Pam, Sookie By the end of the season finale, I was completely reinvested in the story and anticipating next season.Likewise with UnWhollyShusterman introduces three new characters who take up a good chunk of the novel with their background and development While the characters weren t uninteresting, they felt like Unwind redux Starkey is a less likable version of Roland, Miracolina is Lev 2.0 or as I liked to call her, Tithe 1000 , and Cam Cam is a whole nother beast Literally Meanwhile, I m thinking, I came here for Lev Bueller Bueller The first half of the book felt like retread and what I did see of Connor, Risa, and Lev either annoyed me or wasn t enough At one point, even Shusterman s writing started to grate on me After he specifically mentioned Aquafina and Nike, I wrote in my notes, WTF is this product placement The most advanced technology exists and they still drink Aquafina s bottled sewer runoff I actually like Shusterman s writing style but at this point in the story, I was so uninvested and detached that only nitpicking kept me engaged.And then all the tedious groundwork came together and Connor, Risa, and Lev started acting like Connor, Risa, and Lev again It s not that there was a lack of action earlier in the story, but this time, I actually cared and the tension increased tenfold By the end of the book, I was sucked back into the story and eagerly awaiting Book 3.Aside from the new characters, another aspect that may make or break UnWholly for you is the new development regarding the Unwind Accord We learn about how and why it came to be, which was a plot hole in Unwind However, by filling that plot hole, it shifts the focus away from the abortion debate, which sets up a great storyline for Book 3 but also does a bit of a disservice to the issues raised in Book 1 For me, UnWholly lacked some of the heart and guts of the original, but still raised interesting questions and made me think Shusterman also writes taut, tension filled action scenes like few can I ll definitely read the next book, but go in with modified expectations.Rating 3.5 5 stars This review appears on Young Adult Anonymous. 4.5 stars Brutal But spectacular Review to come. Actually, I really like the title , makes me think of Lev I don t know whether to rejoice or start crying that there s a sequel to the best book ever no I mean it this time dude , Unwind Some authors and series should quit while they re ahead coughMaximumRidecough But I m sure it will be excellent The ending was very open and that s how I liked it It allowed hope and optimism The only thing I m dreading is a Risa Connor sex scene P. Getting this out of the way first Neal Shusterman, I swear, if you make me wait five years for the next book, I will die Like, actually die.My expectations were high, high, high for this one, considering how spectacular the first one was Well, this did not disappoint in the least Hot Damn.Damn it DAMN IT Neal Shusterman is an absolute master at two things introducing a bunch of new characters, than you d think you d be able to handle and it makes you want to groan and just think oh my gosh get to the main characters I want to hear about already, and then suddenly making you feel so strongly for them it hurts whether it s love or broiling hatred , and crafting plot twists that are so sneaky so diabolical they make you gasp out loud How does he juggle so many different perspectives one of the perspectives is from the planes, for crying out loud and makes it work Astounding Just astounding One of my favorite qualities from Unwind was the come out of nowhere, impossible to guess plot twists, and this book did not lack in those in the slightest.The characters The ones we love from the first book Connor, Risa, Lev, Hayden the new ones introduced in this one Cam, Miracolina, Trace, Starkey, Nelson I honestly didn t think I could love the main three from the first book , but their character development was fantastic and my love for them grew tenfold with every hardship they faced My heart broke for Lev so much two particular scenes one involving his family, and another after the amazing HE S PEEING IN SOMEONE S SUITCASE scene made my eyes mist and I was this close to bawling I adored his bond with Miracolina I adored Miracolina in general Her transformation was great Cam, oh, Cam, you just want to hold him and pet him and tell him that everything s okay At the end though man I can t wait to see what he has in store for the next book Starkey I can t talk about him without seeing red All I can say is that I have never felt such hatred towards a character before, and considering other books I ve read with those who d done admittedly worse things, that s saying something I sent Caitlin three text messages within ten minutes of each other that express my feelings about this character quite well In verbatim WOW I HATE STARKEY SO MUCH WHAT AN ASSHOLEYOU DON T UNDERSTAND I HATE HIM SO FUCKING MUCHI WANT TO RIP THIS KID S THROAT OUT WITH MY TEETHand so on and so forth If you know me, it takes a lot to make me swear, especially with such violence Could you actually believe that I sympathized with this kid once That I actually kinda even liked him Well, Shusterman has this way of just forcing you to get to know these characters, learn their histories, how their brains work, you suddenly find yourself emotionally invested in them than you ever signed up for, and it s pretty bloody painful.Never a dull moment for the plot It s constantly in motion there s never any dawdling, something is happening, whether it s happening to Connor, to Cam, to Lev, to Miracolina, to Lev and Miracolina, to Nelson GYAHHHH THIS GUY , etc, the action never quits It s fast, gloriously fast, and every scene keeps you on the edge of your seat and you don t want to stop reading until you have nothing left I especially loved the creepy advertisements and the public service announcements that plagued parts of the book, as well as the pseudo articles at the beginning of each part It gave it such a realistic, authentic feel Also, the death almost death scenes Brutal Brutal, brutal, brutal That s another thing he s a master at view spoiler TRACE OMFG THAT WAS SO HORRIBLE STARKEY YOU FREXING BASTARD UGHHHHHH I HATE YOU SO MUCH AND ASHLEY UGH I HOPE SHE S THE ONE WHO KILLS YOU IN THE NEXT BOOK and also the scene with the Whollies was one of the cruelest things I ve ever read I genuinely thought they were all going to die and I was ready to bawl my eyes out and UGH HAYDEN MY BABY and TAAAAD SHUSTERMAN WHY hide spoiler These books are messed up I still feel sorry for kids brought up in this world I think I would rather deal with a killer clown Mel
