I really enjoy books with premises that contradict societies norms, so Unwind really, really grabbed me in! This book deals with the idea of a futuristic society were the problem of abortion has been solved: unwinding.
I really liked the premise of this novel because this issue is such a controversy one; everyone has his or her own opinion. I liked this book, because it addresses both sides of this issue. I have my own opinion, like everyone, and I appreciated how this book wasn’t biased on way or the other. It presented it’s own resolution.
Unwind follows the lives of 3 different teenagers whom, for each different reasons, are being unwound. I’m usually not a huge fan of the multi-narrator but in this case the book needed it. Without having more than one narrator readers wouldn’t become as involved with each situation that resulted in the unwinding of the teenagers.
The plot was well written. I loved Neal Shusterman’s writing. I’m pretty picky with the way non-teenaged writers depict teenagers, but Neal’s writing didn’t annoy me one way.
