I is my TOP book so far
Its like Twilight w/ the Hunger Games feel. Because it has romance action and thrill.
Kenji hands down
This book doesn't give anything away its full of surprises all around. I think that the way Kate Simses reads the book is just on point with the characters. Im definitely going finish this series and reading other books from Tahereh Mafi.
A book is a dream you hold in your hand.
Three words okay..."Did it hurt?"
You know, when you fell from heaven?!! Words cannot do this sjkfnrkjfsil book justice!! I've listened to the entire series 3 times already and I still have to pause and catch my breath every other minute. Tahareh Mafi is my definition of God! This book is dkjgnekrjn incredible and I solemnly swear that I shall not rest until every human being walking on this earth has read this skjnfelrkmf,dx book!! LGJLRKMDskjnsFOKVSLSgrjmr,,KGJNJKD I just had a stroke...
Juliette's internal thoughts were pretty amazing to follow, especially when she was still in the asylum. She has the biggest heart even though she has been through the worst things possible. I love her and I wish I knew her personally. She is everything I've ever wanted to be.
Also, I don't think I've ever fallen this hard for fictional characters before! I am truly, deeply in love with them all.
Yes and she's great especially in this book where her voice really brings out the innocence in Juliette's heart. And I have to give her credit for Adam, Warner and Kenji's voices!!
(It's a plead escaping Juliette's breath)
If you don't fall in love with this book there is something seriously wrong with you my friend...
I loved the story so much..... But....... Occasionally the narrator's voice would get shrill and hurt my ears...... Other than that it was perfect! Good work! :)
the style is different, and the narration intense, but it all comes together quite well. I found myself aggravated with the main character at times but, she is still a worthy protagonist. All in all, a very enjoyable experience!
Listen on dog walks, commutes and around the house. Welcome virtually any genre but southern fiction holds a special place in my heart.
Shatter Me is another 3-star dystopian novel that I read on the heels of Station Eleven. Whereas Station Eleven is a literary dystopian tale aimed at an adult audience, this is a young adult novel along the lines of Divergent. I was pleased with the promising ending, but was pretty irritated by the writing in the first three-quarters of the book. Imagine an entire novel written in the style of slam poetry with bunches of repetitive...repetitive...repetitive phrases and multitudes of over-the-top descriptions ("There are 400 cotton balls caught in my windpipe.") Fortunately, the author abandoned this writing style in the final stretch of the novel. Only then did it feel like she had finally settled into her skin, and was ready to give us the story we had all been waiting for. Because of the strong ending, I'm actually interested in the next two books in the trilogy.
The entire thing was narrated as though the narrator was on the verge of sexual climax. Seriously. I was kind of uncomfortable.
Juliette, Adam, and Warner.
I don't have time to sit and read, but I have plenty of time to sit and listen! :)
Tahereh's writing is like poetry and art being painted into your brain. She is very descriptive and you can't be lost at all unless your mind is just to tired for this kind of active writing. Kate Simses voice immediately pulled me in, she was perfect for the main character and I really hope to find other books she has narrated. (Not sure if you are like me when it comes to figuring out who the narrators are but I recognized her voice and had to google her, turns out she was recently on a show called Mixology and I adored her character and her voice, more of her please!!).
The obsession of the bad guy is a little over the top but hey, what are YA books for? :)
I didn't know it when I first picked up this book that it would end up being like an X-men or comic book hero's. But hey, I can't wait to see where Mafi takes this.
I am on to book two since I heard it was just as good as book one. Even though I was hooked on this book from the start, it was a little teeny boppy at times and made the book a little slow at points, but I figured it's because we are getting to know the characters. Hopefully the action is way better and more believable in book two.
I absolutely loved this series. I don't know why I didn't read it before!
For the story...it gets top marks but it can be sort of "teenish" at times. I loved the characters but the narration was average...I KNOW this will be a movie... I went through the series in no time.
Each book kept me excited....the story just kept me attached to the characters
I believe she tried...she did a good job on the main character but the male characters lacked believability.
"In the future....the human spirit will explode with power!"
