When Superheros meet dystopian teen romance


I can recall listening to Shatter Me some months ago and being extremely irritated with Juliette’s weakness. She is so incredibly whiney, and I understand why, but come on already.

All she ever wanted was to be accepted. Now she is. She is surrounded by supernatural beings, yet she continues to whine whine whine. Oh I just learned I have amazing super strength? Let me whine about how this power is useful in killing. Oh there’s a war happening? Let me whine about my lovelife. Geez Louise, she is so complainy.

However, I absolutely adore this series. I just can’t put my finger on it, but it just draws me
in.

The author, Tahereh Mafi, has such a strange writing style. Everything she says is a metaphor; then she will go on to explain that it’s a metaphor. So, so strange. But, I love it. I love how Juliette will be complaining that there are no words to describe what she is feeling, so she will go on to list the types of words there are. Something like, “There are no prepositions, adverbs, or verbs to describe how I’m feeling.”

I think if I were actually reading the story, I would be annoyed, but Kate Simses depicts all of the characters in a loveable way. She is extremely talented – have you heard how she does James’ voice? Genius!

What Made Unravel Me Work:
Kenji. He is the comic relief of the story that actually had me laughing out loud. He is the voice of reason that puts Juliette in her place. He is funny, has a tragic past, but he still carries an air of mystery to him that makes him a pivotal member of the series.

The romance. Even though it drives me loony on occasion, I am still completely invested in Juliette’s tragic love-life. She is split between Adam and Warner – which is so awesome. I know love triangles are getting a bit overdone, but it is some juicy drama. I’m not going to get into details over what exactly transpires, but it’s fantastic.

The mystery. Some may argue that this story is a tad predictable. Maybe it is. But, I don’t care. It is still exciting to me to learn what may next happen to Juliette, and I’m dying to wait forever for the third installment.

Would you listen to Unravel Me again? Why?

YES!!! I am in love with this series....I can not wait for book 3!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just wow...anyone who didn't like this series is crazy! It doesn't get much better than this....


What did you like best about this story?

I liked ALL of it...and I think I may have been converted almost to TEAM WARNER....ALMOST!


What does Kate Simses bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she is an awesome narrator...sweet sounding sometimes...and vicious and hysterical at others....


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh YES! Both books in this series, and the novella from Warners point of view all took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions...nothing has moved me this much since the Daughter of smoke and bones books....the writing is that good!


Any additional comments?

I loved this book so much, and can not wait till book 3...the writing style, the narration, the story...the characters...everything was beautifully done...I caught myself holding my breath, and screaming out at times...a new fave for me and I will be counting the days till the next book is released....and yes I will be re reading this series again!
