I just finished reading UnWholly written by Neal Shusterman. UnWholly is the sequel to Unwind.



Although I enjoy series, I often think the best book of the series is the first book. I enjoyed Unwind, however, I LOVED UnWholly. I liked that the book continued the story of several of the main characters from the first book and also introduced a few new characters that should have an integral role in the third book. Although I found the book to be dark and actually had to put the book down and walk away from it at times, I really enjoyed the last 200 pages. My only frustration is having to wait until Fall of 2013 for the third book, UnSouled.  🙂

  1. I am reading UnWholly right now and I, too, agree – I am enjoying it so much more than Unwind! I I don’t often like when books are made into movies but this series needs to be a movie!!
    The new characters definitely bring a darker element to the characters from Unwind. I can’t wait to find out how it ends, especially for Cam. I am not a big sci-fi reader but this book could win me over for that genre. This book is action packed for those readers who need action from the beginning of the book. I recommend reading Unwind just to get to UnWholly. I can only hope the next book is going to be even better!
