Fracture Me
Fracture Me - Tahereh Mafi Initial thoughts: Underwhelmed pretty much sums up my thoughts. Fracture Me comes off as a novella that was written merely for the sake of it. It has little rhyme or reason to exist. In the same vein as Destroy Me (#1.5), Fracture Me was written from an alternative perspective to Juliette. This time round it wasn't Warner's though; it was Adam's.

The thing is, Fracture Me hardly brought anything new to the table. Readers already know what happened in Unravel Me (#2). Yet Fracture Me was bent on providing a recap, albeit from the perspective of Adam. Since I hardly gained any new insight into the character of Adam, I felt it was all very superfluous.

The only reason this novella earned 2 stars instead of 1 or even 0 is Mafi's consistency. Her writing style remained solid and I did believe that the story was told from the perspective of Adam. Sadly, I ended up liking him much less than I did in the previous books.

Fracture Me
Fracture Me - Tahereh Mafi This novella picks up around chapter sixty-three from "Unravel Me". We learn about the events surrounding the battle between The Reestablishment and Omega Point from Adam's point of view.

I love how Tahereh Mafi reveals her characters through layers. This novella doesn't disappoint. It's not the same reveal that we got with "Destroy Me". You're not going to walk away with a total understanding of Adam Kent. You will understand why he's not a totally likable person.

In Fracture Me readers learn about Adam the big brother. You'll love his admiration for James. Mafi describes his pain in great detail when Adam thinks he's lost him. Be sure to read carefully. Adam reveals something very important about his relationships with James and with Juliette. If I had read too quickly, I would have missed it.

Mafi reveals just how badly Juliette hurt Adam when she broke up with him. You feel sorry for Adam for a minute. But, then, you want to tell him to grow up. He's on the fence about her and won't fess up.

At the end of this novella you learn that Kenji, Adam's friend, is more concerned about Juliette. Adam loves her, but, his love is suspect. I never got the feeling that he would sacrifice his life for the girl he loves.

I found this an interesting novella. At first, I thought it was a waste of time since it rehashed a lot from "Unravel Me". But, it reveals a lot about Adam and how he feels about Juliette. You'll need to read carefully to find that detail. Once you find it, you just might jump ship and start pulling for Warner or even Kenji.

Fracture Me
Fracture Me - Tahereh Mafi

This is a short novella of the Shatter Me series that bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. It is told from Adam's point of view and I think it is a truly important part of the series.

 

Adam, Adam, Adam. This novella really digs into his head and leaves me with such mixed feelings about who he is, both for himself and for Juliette. I don't want to give too much away, but I think it makes you wonder about the depth of his love for Juliette... maybe even if it is truly her that he loves or the idea of her that he has created in his own head. There is a fine line between loving someone for who they are and who you think or want them to be. How he sees Julietee is so very different from how Warner sees her and that really adds a whole new dimension to it all. It is also a story about choices, hard choices. Not just in love, but in life.

 

I think this is a story that will change opinions on Adam, whether for better or worse. But my rating isn't on the character, it is on the value of the story and I loved it.

 

My Recommendation

 

Regardless of his character, I think this is a big part of the series to really "get" Adam. I gave it 4.5 mugs.

Fracture Me (Shatter Me #2.5)
Fracture Me (Shetter Me #2.5) - Tahereh Mafi

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi's epic dystopian series. It's a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.

 

 

As soon as I heard about Fracture Me I couldn't wait to read it. I am such a huge fan of dystopia series and this is one of my favourites. When I heard that this was told from Adam's perspective I was so beyond excited about it. I am totally Team Adam and I hated Warner right from the beginning and I still do. Because of this I couldn't wait to read from Adam's POV... but honestly I'm a little bit disappointed in it.

I loved seeing things from Adam's point of view so I am so glad we got this novella so that we finally saw Adam's feelings... however I just don't think this novella was necessary for the storyline at all. When we got Destroy Me although I didn't love that it was necessary as we got the inside look at Warner and why he acts the way that he does. It gave more understanding to his actions within the main books. With this one I just didn't see how it was necessary. It just retold some key points from Adam's POV. It didn't really add anything to the storyline and this makes me very sad.

I liked Fracture Me but I certainly didn't love it and don't really see the point in it. I love Adam and I always will and I'm happy we got to see inside his head but I am mainly disappointed with this novella. It wasn't necessary, it didn't add anything to the story and to me it seemed kind of pointless.
