Publisher's Summary

How did Lev Calder move from an unwillingly escaped Tithe to a clapper? In this revealing short story, Neal Shusterman opens a window on Lev’s adventures between the time he left CyFi and showed up at the Graveyard. Pulling elements from Neal Shusterman’s critically acclaimed Unwind and giving hints about what is to come in the riveting sequel, UnWholly, this short story is not to be missed.

    "Great quick listen!"

    A great chapter in the series. Short and concise, but packed with a fantastic story. Picks up Lev's story shortly after the end of the first book.

    Story
    "it was okay."

    I would have preferred to hear more about Lev and his journey after he left the tribe instead of hearing about poor will. This Unwinding is terrifying and I pray it never comes true.

    "WE LEARN DEEPLY"

    PARTS PIRATES
    Not sure this answered any questions? If you are a huge Un Fan, you will want to listen. If you are just a warm fan, it will not be that interesting. Book one is great, everyone should read that. I have not read book Two yet, but I will. Lev spends time with some Indians, sorry Native Americans, sorry Chance People and he is treated well, But and it is a big But.

    CHANCE PEOPLE
    The newness of the whole Un, may be wearing off on me and I found the Chance People with their stilted talk and different beliefs, just a bit boring. Not that their is anything wrong with believing in Animal Spirits and transplanting animal hearts into humans is not any more unbelievable then being Un, I just could not get into it. I might be too old?

    "I'm confused."

    It leaves more questions than it answers..... Like, how and why did Lev make it to the graveyard?? Thought the point of the book was to clear that up?

    "As good as the 1st!!"

    Worked Very well with the first book. No drastic character shift for Lev. Added a new aspect to an already well developed world, and great tie-in to aspects of Unholly. (so far) Short but well worth it!!

    Story
    "Good little warm up!"
    Would you listen to Unstrung again? Why?

    I probably would not listen again. It wasn't long and is not hard to recall the details.This book is just a stepping stone between the first and second book. Interesting but not mandatory.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unstrung?

    I liked the main character a bit too much. I wanted him to stay around a bit longer.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He is consistent from book to book.


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

    It does not have a plot of its own... So no movie here
