Unravel Me Tahereh Mafi Review
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Harper Collins
Second book in the Shatter Me series
time for war.
Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.
She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.
Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.
In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.
I'm having some mixed feelings with this one. I've been waiting so long for it and I was so excited to finally be able to read it. I've been hearing such amazing things. But I didn't like it as much as I liked Shatter Me. It was beautifully written and the storyline was fantastic. I'm not sure why I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. It was still a amazing sequel.
So this one continues Juliette's story. Juliette, Adam, Kenji, and James have arrived at Omega Point with no idea what to expect. Not only do they discover more about themselves but they also get thrown into a war they aren't sure they can win.
Juliette really surprised me. She had a tough time adjusting to Omega Point. And, at times I got a little frustrated with her. I wished she would finally step up and let go of that fragile side. Eventually she did and I loved her even more. I do really like the fragile side because her thoughts are so complex. But with this story that didn't work. She had to toughen up and fast. I loved getting to learn more about her and her power. I kinda missed Adam. He wasn't as huge of a part and I missed him. He was having a harder time with certain things. That really drew him and Juliette apart. I missed their closeness. Okay so I know pretty much everyone became Team Warner. I did enjoy him a lot more because I felt like we really got to know him. But I'm still Team Adam! He's too complex for me. I don't see him as a very good match for Juliette either.
I found this ones storyline vastly different than the first book. It was very exciting. There was all kinds of action and suspense. And, there was tension between characters. This never slowed. It was literally impossible to put down. It was very fast paced. It was pretty hard to predict where the story was going. There was lots of steamy which is always good. I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy this one. I think because I really liked the closeness between characters in the first book. This one had less of that but more action. So I'm pretty conflicted with my feels. Overall though, it was an amazing read. I'm so happy I finally got to read it. Now I'm in the know :). I highly recommend this one. Especially if you like broken and complex characters or a very action filled plot!
