By Tahereh Mafi - Unravel Me (Shatter Me) (12.1.2013) - Tahereh Mafi

Warner is the only saving grace with this book. I hate how Juliette was treating him & I hate how she kept leading him on. The love triangle is unnecessary, Juliette just needs to make a decision which she's not capable of doing. I just don't like her. I'm so disappointed that I'm not liking this book series that's been so hyped up.

Hmm.....this series is like X-Men. Juliette is Rogue, Castle is Professor Xavier, Omega Point is the mutant school he runs, while they all hone their skills while hiding from the outside.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me #2

 

Unravel Me is the second book in the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I read Shatter Me back in August and I really liked it. Tahereh Mafi writes beautifully, I really like her style, really simple but beautiful. It just seems so real, as if Juliette was really writing the book. I also have to say that the love triangle did not annoy me that much.. and that's a lot given the fact that love triangles always get on my nerves. This love story between the three characters seems more real, closer to what could happen in real life than others love interests I've read in many books. That made me happy!

 

This book was much more detailed than the first one. We got to see a little bit more of the world Juliette lives in. What I really liked about it, is  that we discover the world when Juliette does. She has been imprisoned for a long time and she does not know what was happening in the outside world.. and we discover it with her! It may sometimes be difficult to understand due to that fact, but again, it makes it more real!

 

I really don't know what to think about Warner. He's a jackass, that's a sure thing, but just like Juliette, I'm really confused about his intentions and his feelings. Who is this guy? He's so mysterious. I want to know more! And I guess I don't have to say that I adore Kenji!!

 

Overall I enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading Ignite Me (and the novellas as well!)

 

Have you read this series? What did you think?

 

Thanks for reading,

The only positive thing I have to say about this book is that it released me from my curse of having to finish a Trilogy once started. I just could not finish this. I tried, but no. Just no.

 

I decided instead to read the spoilers from other reviews and I am so, so, so happy that I freed myself from this nightmare.

 

In case you are wanting to try it anyway, just know what you are getting into.

- Extreme purple prose

- Love triangle

 

That about sums it up. The rebellion is just a backdrop for the two things above.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi - Thoughts
Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi

So, this is not going to be an actual review. As you can tell by my rating I disliked this book very much and if I wrote a review, it would only be me tearing this book apart. I still believe that every author put hard work into their books so I do not want to belittle the effort. I rather dislike the book and be quiet than rage about a book.

 

Since it is so many readers’ favorite series I want to mention what I did not like about Unravel Me. What has not changed from the first book is my indifference to the writing style. It just does not appeal to me at all. It makes me roll my eyes and cringe so often. And when the eye-rolling starts with the very first sentence of a book, it is a no-brainer that I do not like Mafi’s writing.

 

But I knew that and still, I enjoyed the first book more than I enjoyed this book. Why?

 

Well, in Shatter Me I got pulled in by the story. Unfortunately, this time I could not care less about what was going on. I was so bored. I also disliked the inconsistency of the characters. They acted all tough one second and were whiny, scared little kids the next. Worst for me was, though, how they talked. I was rolling my eyes so much that I got headaches.

 

I will not pick up the next book. Time is just too precious for me. I do not know why people love this series so much and maybe some of you will let me know, why. I might have enjoyed this 10-13 years ago when I was in my teens but as it is the Shatter Me series fell flat for me.
