My parents emptied their pockets of me and left me to evaporate on a concrete slab. Like my thoughts about this book changed 100 percent. Before we run for our lives, we have to kiss!! I feel like I should love it. Occasionally you end up with genius, but most of the time you result in pretentious, awkward prose that stick in the proverbial craw of readers. This is my favorite series. It's much better than your average read. Juliette is an isolated girl, left alone with nothing but her own thoughts and words.
People have loved Mafi's writing style, but I don't see it. I stayed away from all the reviews so I was not warned of this beforehand. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. Oh and of course we have the best and most amazing side-character there could be. There are 3 This was something.
The side that needs protection. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. I sometimes thought to quit,but god,I am glad I didn't. This time I found myself really enjoying the book. When are popular young adult authors going to provide more to the characterization of their main protagonists than: Irresistible, unique outsider, in love with a guy? I just did not care for Mafi's writing style. It won't stop slamming into me. Somebody make me feel alive And shatter me! That said, this book annoyed me on several different levels.
Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. I felt he was the most realistic for this dystopia like setting. I'm not going to lie: the direction this novel takes is familiar yet still a bit surprising. Also, the strike-outs may become a teensy-bit annoying to some readers. As for whether you should try this one for yourself. And yet it occurs in way too many young adult books.
One is heroic and kind; the other is cruel and nearly mad during certain moments. I feel very meh about her. I catch the rose petals as they fall from my cheeks, as they float around the frame of my body, as they cover me in something that feels like the absence of courage. I re-bought Shatter Me and the other books, which I never read initially, but now that book four is due to come out and everyone was losing their mind over it, I'm giving this series another shot. People didn't exaggerate: it will most likely drive you crazy. This book is not for me.
You will either love it or hate it depending on how you feel about prose but if you love it than O. If you are like myself a fan of crazy and demented bad guy who actually happens to be smoking hot and in love with our girl Juliet ,you will love it. I don't know, something about this book just really really wowed me, and it was fucking awesome in my eyes. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. He looks at her with kind eyes, he's curious. .
My jaw is dangling from my shoelace 310. For five hours, I read this. She used to live with her parents who were incredibly abusive until the incident that changed her life at 14. The guilt, the loneliness of never touching anyone. But what made the whole book unenjoyable or at least one of the causes were the characters.
I pirouette in the dark I see the stars through me Tired mechanical heart Beats til the song disappears Somebody shine a light I'm frozen by the fear in me Somebody make me feel alive And shatter me So cut me from the line Dizzy, spinning endlessly Somebody make me feel alive And shatter me! I mostly read this to see the Warner guy everyone keeps talking about. Right now he seems like an over obsessed lunatic… but who knows. Hope the holes in my head aren't showing. The Superficial Juliette Juliette is a naturally beauty, described as a short 5 foot, 3 inches with blue-green eyes and luxuriously long, brown hair. In some ways, Shatter Me, is much like that: it's about a big idea a dystopian world headed by a secretive totalitarian government , but instead it focuses on one character's role in it Juliette. It was annyoing like hell,especially at the beginnings.
