Really good book, much better than I thought it would be. Disturbing concept, though.

Love this series! The first book drew me in with vivid detailing and accurate ideas. Although set farther into the future, I felt like I could place myself in the characters' shoes. Will always recommend this book!

I love this book! Although I wasn't all to fond of reading Neal S. again (the Everlost series didn't impress me much) I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The setting was amazing, the characters really well developed and the plot was great. Although I wasn't all too fond of the ending, the second book took care of it and made it worthwhile. I really recommend this book!

Wow! That's the best word to describe Unwind. It's scary to imagine this book becoming reality. This book was wonderful and freaky at the same time. The journey of the characters seemed real. The part where the kid was being unwould was really intense and disturbing. Unwind was an amazing book. I hope Unwholly is just as awesome.

One of his best. A very creepy concept in a fast paced book.

VERY good book. I enjoyed every second of it, and the sequel, called Unwholly, is seeming to be very good aswell. Unusual idea, but it has been written very well, and it left me thinking for ages afterwards 'what if...?'

I felt the ending (for some of the characters) was a desperate attempt to tie up loose ends that let me down. For a couple of characters, the ending was amazing (not necessarily for them) and made a good book even better. Overall, a very good book. I quit reading science fiction a decade ago because I felt they'd used up all the good ideas -- thanks Mr. S. for proving me wrong. This book had the kind of plot that makes you keep reading, and I really cared about our hero.

Really great book. Original characters as strong as Hunger Games and as nefarious. Do read. This series will be a movie I predict.

Imagine a world where there are no doctors looking for cures-only body parts for replacements. A story told in a world where unwanted teens being given up to be chopped up to pieces to salvage their body parts is actually a good thing- and of 3 kids who managed to escape...
