The second book in the Shatter Me series really drew me in and I cannot wait to download and listen to the third and final book. The first book was so-so for me and I couldn't decide how it might expand the characters but the second book was FANTASTIC and has left me wanting the conclusion. The love triangle is intriguing and Juliette coming into her own and starting to discover who she is both emotionally and physically is a nice turn. I find Warner a more complex and intense character than Adam who I find to be immature. I tend to roll my eyes in many intense love scenes but Mafi has done a nice job of not over doing them making them sexy and romantic without explicit.
Tahereh has written an excellent second installment for this series. Kate said and amazing job with the reading as well. I think the thing that I enjoy the most about this book was the level of detail that is put into every small piece of the writing. She really makes the characters come alive and the environment in which they are in almost appears before you in three dimensions.
I love Juliette's character. And I love how she makes the relationship between the characters so confusing.
She does a good job of making you feel how Juliet thinks about herself with this week little voice but her actions speak otherwise.
Juliette is beautiful and poetic. Kenji is by far my favorite sidekick ever. Warner is to die for. Adam gets the short end of the stick.
I remember when I first read Shatter Me, I liked it, but I wasn't blown away. I thought Adam was likable, but there was something missing. That something was the complex, secretly NOT a psychopath Warner. He snuck up on me, but after reading the 1.5 novella Destroy My I knew he would get to me in Unravel Me, and boy did he ever. Chapter 62 anyone? Hot and Intense!
Julie the continues to grow and makes some tremendous progress. And I just love Kenji!
Narrator does a great job with the emotional and poetic thoughts, just wonderful.
Book 2 is SO much better, a must read!
I really liked the story line, it's really unique and was refreshing. It was predictable at times but I love seeing Juliette transform, especially at the end. I am always for a strong heroine and at times she is weak and scared but she shows up when it counts. The love triangle was SOOO predictable. The narrator did a pretty good job. The only thing that irritates me is all of the analogys and metaphors. There are SO MANY! Like 15 in every sentence. They made her seem kind of cray cray, but I guess in some sense she is. I would recommend if you like a good love story
I am picky about audio books, but the reader of this series is great. It helps that the story is too. Definitely wouldn't understand if you haven't read or listened to the first book. Praises all around!
