Unwind Trilogy: Unsouled

Tuesday, 19 November 2013

Kindle - amazon. Case - waterstones.

This is the last book is the Unwind trilogy. I started the trilogy last year and read the first two in a matter of days! They are the kind of book that you just can't put down. The final book came out this week and I ordered it straight onto my kindle and read it within 24 hours. I was not disappointed. All of these books fall into the young adult dystopian genre which seems to have taken off lately.
This book is set a few generations in the future where a new law has come to pass that, between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, parents can have their child "unwound," whereby all of the child's organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn't technically end. The first one follows 3 main characters and their journeys against unwinding. As the trilogy goes you meet a number of other characters, each with their own background story, that entwine with the main characters.

The first thing I love about the book are the characters. Each one felt relatable. Each was unique and had their good and bad qualities. Each had relationships with the other that made me really feel for them. 
A second thing about this trilogy is the pace of it. I get hooked so easily into a fast paced novel. It leaves you feeling a little breathless. This one does that but at the same time is constantly make you think. Always tugging on those heart strings.

The ethical questions raised throughout the book may sometimes seem a little unreal, but when you take a step back I don't think that they are that far fetched from some of the problems we face today and have faced in the past. This book definitely raised ideas that made me think twice.

So if you haven't started the series yet I recommend you do! You will not be disappointed. I even enjoyed the ending of this book which is something that doesn't normally happen at the end of a series!
