Undivided by Neil Shusterman

Product Details  I started reading this series a few years ago.  It took me some time but I have finally completed the Dystology.   It is difficult to discuss UnDivided without going into my thoughts on the whole.  

In this final installment,  Lev, Risa and Connor are all working to finally end Proactive Citizenry.   Thanks to friends made along they way, they have in their possession, the means to end the need for unwinding forever.   Of course, those behind the Juvie cops and Proactive Citizenry aren't just going to sit around and allow that to happen.

Connor has always been a leader, but never more so that in this final installment.  I loved his compassion for those who would do him harm, as seen especially in the end of the book.   I really loved Cam in this book.   Cam is a person who was created by Proactive Citizenry as a composite from over 100 Unwinds to be the perfect soldier.  He is the perfect example of how life doesn't always work out the way that you expect it to.   The most touching part of this book for me was how PC inserted nanites into Cam's brain to make him forget Risa.   The thing is though, love can never really be erased.

All this said,  UnDivided was my least favorite of the Dystology.  It does an adequate job of wrapping up all the loose ends, (Pun intended)   but just didn't have the same energy as the first couple of books.   UnWind will forever be my favorite of the Dystology.

Still,  I highly recommend this series.   It is imaginative and worst of all,   you could almost see how this  dystopian future isn't that unlikely.   3 out of 5 stars for this book, 5 out of 5 for the series as a whole.
