  • YA Virtual World Dystopian

    Unplugged is a YA sci-fi/dystopian fantasy. Half of the inhabitants of the country have plugged themselves into a virtual world while their bodies sleep. Skylar is one of them, after her mom and sister sacrificially paid for her to live in the better life of the virtual world. But now, ten years later at sixteen years old, Skylar wants nothing more than to see her family again. But changes are coming to her world, and the authorities have instituted a new law that no one may return to the real world or enter from the real world. Unplugged was an entertaining fiction. It explores the idea of what humanity would be like if we went into an all virtual world and what would happen to the rest of humanity who doesn't live there. What would happen to people's brains - would the skills they developed in the virtual world transfer? Is there a way to separate one's soul completely from one's body so as to live free from the fear of death? And what would happen to the empty shells, the bodies, if that happened? They were all very interesting questions to explore in the story. Other things I liked included the characters and the development they went through. The plot twists were surprising and welcome, and the story moved at a comfortable pace. The world building was interesting. The content was mostly clean. There was violence and some mentions of characters' romance going into the bedroom. But it is acceptably clean for a teen book. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to other fans of YA dystopian, especially fans of Under the Never Sky. I received a complementary copy of this book. All opinions are my own, and I was not obligated to provide a positive review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
