It took me a while to get settled into this novel. I don't mind suspending disbelief, but there was something about a future after a pro-life/pro-choice civil war I just couldn't sink my teeth into. Shusterman, however, roped me in. There wasn't one character in the book I didn't like. There wasn't a person or a story that seemed out of place. There were multiple moments I had genuine "what. the. hell." reactions, and I assure you, that's a good thing. Shusterman made me care about his cast of underdogs, he made me care about his dystopian world and he made me care about the rebellion. And just as soon as I cared, he hit us with a discription of an Unwind. I repeat: what. the. hell. It was vivid, in an understated way, and that's essentially the feeling I'm carrying away from this book. Interesting read and it definitely got me thinking.
