I connected with UNTAMED in a slightly different way than most of the reviewers. Like them, I was really excited by this new dystopian series. I love a good dystopian! But as I read it, I couldn't help but see the connection between the escapism found in consuming augmenters and the current heroine crisis in many many schools, particularly in my own community. Additionally, the Enhanced in Dryer's book, use the augmenters as a way to also avoid feeling unpleasant of difficult emotions. It's an opportunity to circumvent physical "imperfections." This is a relatable concept in a world where photoshop messes with the minds and often the health of a great portion of the population. Dyer does a great job touching on these challenging issues without ever speaking of them directly or being preachy. I'm interested to see what happens in book two.
