Zach's YA Reviews: Book Review: UnWholly by Neal Shusterman

Zach's YA Reviews: Book Review: UnWholly by Neal Shusterman | Neal Shusterman | Scoop.it

While I found that many parts of this book were easily deciphered, others just threw me off entirely. I was astonished when new secrets were revealed and surprising twists were thrown my way. This book is definitely one to blow your mind when it comes to the larger secrets it holds, while the smaller less exciting secrets come out before they are confirmed.

YA Litwit: Banned Book Showcase: Unwind by Neal Shusterman | Neal Shusterman | Scoop.it

A Montgomery County, KY high school removed this book from classroom discussion and curriculum because, "Some parents have complained about five novels that contain foul language and cover topics - including sex, child abuse, suicide, and drug abuse - deemed unsuited to discussion in coed high school classes. They also contend that the books don't provide the intellectual challenge and rigor that students need in college preparatory classes.". Have any of these parents actually read this book? Lacking intellectual challenge? This is one of the most thought provoking YA books out there!!!

A Dash of YA: Highlighting Neal Shusterman | Neal Shusterman | Scoop.it

at the end of each novel that I have read by him, he always converges all of the points-of-view for one final moment - a big a-ha! It's like that phrase "All roads lead to Rome." In this moment, each POV's small details become important. Each action, conversation, thought has a driving purpose. He is not wasteful with his words.

Module 8: Unwind by Neal Shusterman — Rachael Reads | Neal Shusterman | Scoop.it

This book was amazing. The argument about abortion is very topical in today’s political climate. The writing and the narration, which switched between several points of view, kept it fresh and interesting — it was nice to get different perspectives to explain different parts of the society, like the clappers and the storking. The story was amazing and well executed; at no point did they have a new concept that wasn’t fleshed out and well explained.

a review of Unwind

a review of Unwind | Neal Shusterman | Scoop.it

Well done, Mr. Shusterman. You've combined just the right amount of dystopian/psychological horror, sociopolitical elements, interesting characters. The story is a well-oiled machine that knows just when to frighten its readers, make us believe in its characters, and develop the world around them. 5/5.
