4.5 stars and I believe the series is improving book-to-book. I think another reviewer may have summarized it best: "Neal Shusterman weaves a tale as interesting and complex as Camus Comprix's 'internal community.'" The story continues to develop layer by layer, with multiple POV, primarily Connor, Lev, Risa and Cam. Weaved into this story is the backstory of unwinding's inventor, scientist Jansen Rheinschild and his wife, Sonia, who we've seen before. Connor and Lev are on the lam together, trying to reach Sonia, whom they believe can help them stop unwindings. Along the way, they pick up a fascinating new character, Grace, who is simple of mind, but very attuned to emotions and plays an important role in the book. Really looking forward to the conclusion.

I still get an eerie feeling when reading about unwinding. Another good book in the series. It was nice to have read UnStrung (Unwind #1.5) before reading this. It took me a while to get through this book, but I'll still pick up future books in this series. :) ( )

Decent third installment. I could do without the now standard love triangle in dystopian teen movies. Sigh.

So this book adds old school oppression for Native Americans now called chancefolk and living on the Hi-Rez. It's not explained really the accumulation of wealth, power and status for NA. I love that Hi-Rez has so much power and authority. I love their relationship with Unwinds.
Black people are umbers (after a mixed race photographer, erasing entirely brown and dark skinned blacks) and white people are sienna. No name given for asians, latinx, arabs, pacific islanders, etc sigh. It's almost insulting, as if you change the names of oppression and suddenly it disappears. Here's a reality check though, multiple oppressed groups have changed what they are called. I think 'African Americans' became popular in my lifetime. My father was born a 'negro'. My grandparents as colored. The oppression remains the same no matter what name is used popularly.
Yet, the first Unwind center is in Chicago. Are we going to touch on the 'ghetto' and how it was formed via redlining and refusing Black people home loans? Wonder who they processed first? The poor? The juvenile delinquents? Are we going to hear about how undesirables are usually the poor and otherwise oppressed? The non white? Who are seen in today's world as unworthy of government assistance, probably the first to be used for their parts. At least specific parts. Imagine if the Kardashians could steal actual black body parts: lips, skin, buttocks, rather than having to deal with tanning and collagen. Everybody is stealing asian hair, as most wigs and weaves are made from that hair type. This would allow cultural appropriation on a whole other level. So we have selective old school oppression?
CyFi makes me uncomfortable. He has shades of the magical negro archetype. Also if he was raised in an all white area, what's the point of having him use AAVE? It's mildly insulting as it's part of the community and usually blacks raised outside of it never use it correctly. They sound like Iggy Azalea. Again the book is decorated in diversity but it's doesn't really work.
I find it surprising that this book is the first book to deal with having criminals Unwound. I would think that would've happened before the problem teens. Seems like rehabilitating teens would be easier than adults. Again not discussed is that private prisons are multi-million dollar businesses with lobbies. I doubt they're supporting this seriously. Also who is picking crops? Washing dishes? Cutting lawns? If we kill the poorer folks how does that play out in how society functions? After all the black death meant rights for the lower classes as their were fewer people and they were not easily dismissed or replaced.
Not all disabilities are visible. If I was sent to the chop shop before 17 would my multiple chronic illnesses have been found before my parts were parceled out? So diseased parts must be passed unintentionally and unknowingly. Some illness would only be found as the body was taken apart. I wonder about this in my weird way.
I like the storyline with how Unwinding begins. ( )

Really amazing! Not quite as good as Unwind (what book is?) but better than Unwholly. Now I have to wait for the next one though :( ( )

Surely this new medical technology will free us rather than enslave us, for it is my firm belief that human compassion outweighs human greed. To that end, I hereby found Proactive Citizenry to be a stalwart watchdog over the ethical use of neurografting. I am confident that abuses will be the exception rather than the rule.

I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.
