This author is exquisite, she weaves a masterpiece of a story that leaves you wanting more. The metaphors and similes draw you in. Somehow you read so much you almost feel as if you are not reading. Such a great book! Can't wait to read the next one!!!! Love love love it!
continued and long, long whininess. All 3 books. Good story - she needs to get a back bone.
I really enjoyed the first book "Shatter me" and was super excited for the second book. Although I actually liked this book a lot, I do have a few problems with it... A lot of the time I'm just very frustrated with the characters, especially Juliette. And that bothered me a lot. She gets better, and then all of a sudden she falls apart again...
Another thing that I don't like that much about this book is how dramatic it is. Sometimes I like that a lot, other times it's just over the top.
Other than that I think this book is really good, and I love the narrator! I didn't like her at first, but she fits Juliette perfectly!
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!
