Disturbingly good tale about a insanely inhumane notion.

"Unwind" is a dystopian tale proposing tough questions to its readers (regardless of their age). At first I believed the author heading to a biased and preachy narrative. No matter where your beliefs fall the macabre situations faced by the characters (especially the unwinding of Roland) will make one pause.

A good book for kids and adults that can be read from different perspectives. What could a child do to deserve this and what parent could kill their child like this.
