The unwind Dystology

Nuova trilogia distopica, purtroppo questa volta incompleta, di Neal Shusterman. Ho appena cominciato a leggerla quindi non me ne sono ancora fatta un'idea...Vi dirò...Comunque si parla di "aborti retroattivi" che pare non essere una storia originale (poi magari quando ho tempo cerco di leggere il libri che lo ha ispirato).

1. Unwind- La divisione (Titolo originale: Unwind)
2. (Titolo originale: Unwholly)
3. (Titolo originale: Unsouled)
4. (Titolo originale: Undivided)

Casa editrice: Edizpiemme
Trame:
1. Unwind- La divisione
La seconda guerra Civile, che passò alla storia come la Guerra Morale, fu un conflitto lungo e sanguinoso, combattuto negli Stati Uniti su un'unica questione: l'accettazione o meno dell'aborto. Per mettervi fine, venne approvata una serie di emendamenti nota come Legge sulla Vita, che accontentò sia lo schieramento abortista, sia quello antiabortista. La Legge stabilisce che la vita umana è intoccabile dal momento del concepimento fino a quando un bambino compie tredici anni. Fra i tredici e i diciotto, però, i genitori possono decidere di abortire in modo retroattivo a condizione che, tecnicamente, la vita dell'adolescente non finisca. A questo scopo, tutti gli organi del ragazzo verranno impiantati in persone in attesa di trapianto, le quali manterranno una memoria del donatore. Il processo tramite cui il ragazzo viene allo stesso tempo eliminato e tenuto vivo si chiama Divisione. È una pratica largamente accettata dalla società. Connor ha sedici anni, Lev tredici e Risa quindici. Tutti e tre hanno uno stesso destino: essere Divisi. Tutti e tre vogliono sfuggire a questo destino, e sono pronti a combattere.
2. Unwholly 
It’s finally here. The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling Unwind, which Publishers Weekly called a “gripping, brilliantly imagined futuristic thriller.” Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simltaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished. Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself. Rife with action and suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it means to live.
3. Unsouled
The story that began with Unwind continues. Connor and Lev are on the run after the destruction of the Graveyard, the last safe haven for AWOL Unwinds. But for the first time, they’re not just running away from something. This time, they’re running toward answers, in the form of a woman Proactive Citizenry has tried to erase from history itself. If they can find her, and learn why the shadowy figures behind unwinding are so afraid of her, they may discover the key to bringing down unwinding forever. Cam, the rewound boy, is plotting to take down the organization that created him. Because he knows that if he can bring Proactive Citizenry to its knees, it will show Risa how he truly feels about her. And without Risa, Cam is having trouble remembering what it feels like to be human. With the Juvenile Authority and vindictive parts pirates hunting them, the paths of Connor, Lev, Cam, and Risa will converge explosively—and everyone will be changed. Neal Shusterman continues the adventure that VOYA called “poignant, compelling, and ultimately terrifying.”
4. Undivided
Teens control the fate of America in the fourth and final book in the New York Times bestselling 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.
