Must Read Review: I'd So Rather Be Reading's Review of "Unwind"

During the week I normally run across at least one book review that is so inspiring, so well-written and whets my appetite for the book so much so that it sends me scurrying to my Goodreads To-Be-Read list like Scrooge scurrying after a penny. My Must Read Review for this week is . .

KELLI from I'd So Rather Be Reading's Review of Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Earlier today I noticed the link to Kelli's review, thanks to my Google dashboard.  I had never heard of this author or this book and I normally don't read YA or sci fi but I'm glad that I stopped to read this review.   From the brief description it sounds like something that I would likely enjoy - - a strange future where children between the ages of 13 and 18 can be harvested for their organs for a variety of reasons.

The story is interesting on its own merit but Kelli's review was so enthusiastic, so descriptive and in-depth, it left me wishing that I had this book in my hand so I could experience the emotions she did while reading it.  And thank you, Kelli, for whetting my appetite for this book without giving away any spoilers!

Enjoy these little snippets of her review:

I was totally blown away by this book. Simply blown away.

I will say, however, that the way Shusterman weaves the interrelating parts of the story together was both heartbreaking and awe-inspiring.

Unwind was one of the best books I've read this year; in fact, it's one of my all-time favorites.

The emotion, the suspense, the way it made me feel: it was all stunning.

I first read Kelli's review of this book on Goodreads and I, too, was blown away by it. I had never heard of this book before. The blurb is interesting but Kelli's review makes it a must-read for me.

I added this one to my Wish list when I read the review from Kelli too.

Spread the word since it seems amazing!
