Publisher's Summary

Teens control the fate of America in the fourth and final book in the New York Times best-selling Unwind dystology by Neal Shusterman.

Proactive Citizenry, the company that created Cam from the parts of unwound teens, has a plan: to mass produce rewound teens like Cam for military purposes. And below the surface of that horror lies another shocking level of intrigue: Proactive Citizenry has been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unnecessary. As Conner, Risa, and Lev uncover these startling secrets, enraged teens begin to march on Washington to demand justice and a better future. But more trouble is brewing. Starkey's group of storked teens is growing more powerful and militant with each new recruit. And if they have their way, they'll burn the harvest camps to the ground and put every adult in them before a firing squad - which could destroy any chance America has for a peaceful future.

    "BonsaiCats are Gross"
    If you could sum up Undivided in three words, what would they be?

    fun, creepy, fresh


    What other book might you compare Undivided to and why?

    I would compare the format to A Song of Ice and Fire or Zelazny's Donnerjack, or Gaiman's American Gods (which is a pretty blatant Zelazny rip-off, IMO). The point of view jumps from one character to another, and often to characters that are actually peripheral to the central plot line, characters with no name who do little more than witness the events. This keeps the story fresh in ways that other books do not.

    Let's face it. YA dystopian novels are a dime a dozen anymore. But if you've ever found yourself sick of listening to Katniss talk about how she's not-so-hot but can't decide which dude she wants, or Triss talk about how she's really not-that-hot but can't stop obsessing about the dude she wants, or any John Green character talk about how they're not-so-hot but can't stop borderline stalkerish behavior over someone they like, then this book is for you. Sure, that stuff comes up in the Unwind series. But just when it could start to get annoying, the point of view jumps to a gardener across the country, or inside the head of someone being harvested for organs, or whatever.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Shusterman gets creepy, I enjoy it. And I need to be clear about this: I don't like horror. I find it gory and often silly instead of scary. Shusterman is not horror. He is suspense. He places the reader in the minds of characters slowly watching something terrible happen, slowly comprehending their levels of helplessness, slowly admitting to themselves that it is really happening. It sounds terrible, and it is. Which is what makes it so effective. Shusterman understands that enduring hope can sometimes be the worst thing to have in a bad situation.

    Shusterman also does not always go for the cheap creepies. Which is not to say that the books do not go to extremes. They do. However, just when you think, oh gods, I am about to listen to some gross and predictable teen sexual assault, it turns out, no, actually, it's something completely different. And when a villain would normally menace and threaten a kid in another book, Shusterman has the villain show surprising integrity, or indefensible violence, or some messed-up combination of both.

    It's not boring.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In this book, I think it was the scene when Camus asked Roberta to say Risa's name. It was just a damn shame, and it was the first time I kind of cared about Camus Comprix.


    Any additional comments?

    I want another series like this, full of action, politics, sci-fi, and heart. And read by Luke Daniels. <3 Luke Daniels. Hook up recommendations if any of you have them. I plow right through book series, both in audio and print, so I could use some fresh material.

    "Excellent series"

    Still wondering why this series has not been made into a movie or movie series yet. Riveting, suspenseful, and with the liberal sprinkling of all the news articles from real life sources throughout each book, the author has created a dystopian world that could possibly be reality one day - which is very frightening. Great read and the narration was just about perfect.

    "Twisted. Couldn't stop listening."

    This would be a blockbuster movie series rivaling the Hunger Games. Narrator was divided (pun intended) a different voice for each character. Well done.

    "Best series I have read"
    Would you listen to Undivided again? Why?

    I will listen to it again because it is a great ending to a awesome series


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was not predictable and it keeps the reader involved in the story. There are emotional lows and highs throughout.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There are many ways you could go with a tag line for this series. For this book specifically, "Winding up"?

    Absolutely. This series and this audiobook in particular is amazing and I would recommend it to everyone.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Connor, Resa, Camu... where do I begin. They are all such well thought out characters I can't choose just one. They are all my favorite!


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke Daniels is my favorite narrator and I will try and listen to everything he narrates.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I couldn't wait to start listening again.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sad this is the last book. I loved this story so much. It was a great end to an epic series.

    "Mixed Feelings about Undivided"

    After reading Unwind, the first of four entries in Neal Shusterman's YA dystopian series, I felt that my disbelief was sorely tested but that the strength of the story and the writing made it worthy of suspension. As the tale comes to a close, UnDivided leaves me unwhole.

    On one hand, one of the main threads of the story takes a surprising path to its conclusion, (although once you understand what that path is, you also see immediately where it's going to lead). Meanwhile, every other storyline comes to exactly the conclusion you'd expect -- after the final reveal of the previous book, you already know how it's going to end. I expected Shusterman to pull rabbits out of his hat rather than take the easy way out.

    A major problem is reliance on a discredited device -- the talking villain. Three of the four villains just talk and talk and talk, two of them bringing about their own demise by failing to just shut up and be evil, while a third just drones on endlessly. The latter is all the more tiresome because he (a new character) is a stock villain straight out of central casting -- Neal, nothing more interesting than a sadistic Chechen uber-criminal?

    On the other hand, previous entries were a scattered, following too many characters who were too far afield from each other. Here, Shusterman does what he should have done all along -- stick with a particular character or storyline until it's (at least mostly) wrapped up.

    But the big thing is the disbelief. In UnDivided, Shusterman takes us into graphic detail about unwinding, a disturbing picture. He adds extra layers beyond unwinding, showing the lengths disturbed minds can go. But it goes far beyond my ability to suspend my disbelief. The good news is, it emerges as a potent symbol. In the end, it's just impossible to imagine parents, scientists, even corporations and governments going so far as to literally murder an entire generation. But it becomes plausible as a overly literal symbol of how future generations can be sold out to the forces of corporate greed and political power.

    That's what I ultimately take away from this series, from its powerful start to the mixed feelings I have at its end. Overall, very much worth reading/listening.
