I was so humbled after i read this book. it is an amazing story of survival.
Beautiful, different, and completely mesmerizing! I've been waiting for this book for so, so, so long and when I got it, I was literally jumping up and down. First of all, I loved Tahereh Mafi's writing style, loved the strike outs. It was really different then anything other I've read and the way she portrays her characters is great. You feel every emotion Juliette is feeling, feel her pain and happiness as if it is your own. Juliette's character development was great to read, and she really did develop. Juliette starts off very broken and then becomes much more stronger, she gains the will to want to fight. Oh, and how can I begin to explain ADAM<3 He was just such an amazing character, and he felt real. The funny thing is that I even LIKED the antagonist in the book; Warner. I mean, at some parts I hated him but he seems to have a very interesting back story, which we will probably learn about in the other books. Learning about the reestablishment and how they want to change the world was interesting as well. Shatter Me takes us on a journey with Juliette, first to her cell in the asylum and then to the very different reestablishment. We learn all the things she can do with her ability. There are so many people who want to use her power for horrible things and you get to see the very interesting choices she makes to escape all those circumstances. The ending opens up a whole new different angle to the story, one I can't wait to read about in the next book. I think it's safe to say that this book shattered me ;D
I actually listened to this book on audio CD in my car while driving. Even though this book is considered "junior fiction", I still was interested in checking it out. If you enjoy a little soft-science fiction now and again, this book is for you!
