  1. Read this one a few months ago and recently finished UnWholly! They definitely rank in the top of my favorite YA dystopias… there is a lot to think about in these books, particularly the shades of gray that surround some really divisive issues (like abortion). I hope everyone enjoys it!

  2. The whole thing! Especially the unwinding scene – holy crud – why ever would they do it like that?! Except to let the reader go through it with them. That was totally horrifying but so well done. I am excited to get my hands on Unwholly.

    • Okey dokey! So my review is here.

      Few quick things:

      Did you every get a specific feel for how far in the future this is? That area seemed pretty vague to me, and it’s something I would definitely have liked answered. I mean, it’s going to take a while for people to get from today’s mentality to a mindset where Unwinding is okay; that kind of change doesn’t happen overnight. But, based on atmosphere, Unwind could have taken place quite easily today, so I didn’t get a good feel for that time period. It’s probably just me being nit-picky, but I think that type of thing would help the overall impact of the plot.

      That was, I think, the big overall issue I had with the book.

      Otherwise, my favorite scene was definitely the one with CyFy. The parents’ reactions were so telling and just…wow.

      • I didn’t get a specific feel for the date. I would guess maybe ~ 100 years in the future? Aside from all the technology surrounding unwinding everything seemed pretty normal. I didn’t pick up things that would make me think it’s in the very far future (300+ years). You’re right, I felt a bit like it could have taken place today with just a few tweaks.

        That scene was really hard to read!
