Shatter Me By Tahereh Mafi
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
This book has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while now, but I finally picked it up and I’m really glad that I did. The writing is different to anything else I’ve ever read, there are lots of
cross outs and repetition is used frequently. Not that it was bad, just different.
The cover. I don’t know what to say. The cover on the left is the original and the pretty one on the right is the revised cover. The original one is… shiny. That might possibly be the one thing that I like about it. I adore the new one and it matches the rest of the book covers in the series. I’m not too sure how either covers relate to the book, but at least they’re pretty – at least the new one is.
Juliette, the protagonist, can kill people by touching them, which kind of sucks for her, and by kind of I mean completely. Throughout the book Juliette discovers things about herself that she didn’t know before, but I think that in the second book, Unravel Me, she will discover a lot more than she did in Shatter Me. Before I finish this part I would like to say that I did not see the book ending the way it did and if you have already read the book I think you know what I mean.
I gave Shatter Me 4 hearts because I thought that the story and writing to be unique and I really enjoyed reading it. It didn’t quite make 5 hearts because there were very brief moments when nothing was really happening and there wasn’t as much character development as I was expecting for some of the characters (Yes I’m talking about you Warner).
I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to read something a little different. I have tagged this book under adventure, because throughout the book Juliette goes on an adventure in some sense, she goes places she has never been before and there are intense moments filled with action. Even if action and adventure isn’t your cup of tea, there is romance throughout the book and if it still isn’t appealing to you how about the fact that she can kill people just by touching them? Interesting right?
