Descrizione

The thrilling second installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.

It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.

She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.

Juliette’s world is packed with high-stakes action and tantalizing romance, perfect for fans of the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard and the Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken.

Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, raved: "A thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love, the Shatter Me series is a must-read for fans of dystopian young-adult literature—or any literature!"

    The repeating of words that annoyed me in the first book happened less in this one, which made me enjoy the story more. What a cliff hanger!!!

    I love warner in this book so much , i don't think i would put any proper review about it soon.but i want to rant about it .. CHAPTER 62 ! and Aaron , what a beautiful name for a character like him , he is one of my first bookish villain/boyfriends .Juliette was so annoying at times ( not surprising) but by the end i felt like her character developed and grew some back-bone I admit , the only thing i love so much about this series is Warner (chapter 62 guuuuys!!)

    Parent review

    I would give this book series four or five stars based on the story line alone. As an xmen fan, I loved this story line. I loved the characters and the weird writing grew on me. However as a momma, I would never let my young teenage girls read this book. (Thus a 3) It was full of colorful language and very intimate in places. I kept thinking man I would not want my daughter to read this and then go on a date.

    I have really been looking forward to this book. There was so much hype surrounding events that took place and certain developments. It didn't completely let me down. The book wasn't quite as consistently exciting and as engaging as I had hoped. Scattered throughout were "Oh my goodness. Did that really just happen?!" moments and they were HUGE, but I almost would have preferred those moments to occur much more regularly in smaller increments just so I would feel like I couldn't put the book down. It ended up taking me kind of awhile to read this simply because it would get boring and drag a little and then we would have these moments that made me want to devour the story, only to have it cycle back into the drab.

    I'm really not a fan of the Juliette, Warner and Adam triangle. Mainly because Adam really irritates me. He just seems far too emotional and whiny and I just don't see the appeal. Kenji is featured much more in Unravel Me and I really wish Adam would have got the boot and Kenji would take his place. Kenji is funny and lighthearted but knows when to be mature and serious. Maybe the next book will make my dreams come true?

    Juliette is also fairly irritating. She is just so wishy-washy and nothing is ever black or white to her. It literally seems like she is always in the gray.With that said, her character does make some serious strides and towards the end of this installment I found myself really liking and looking forward to all things Juliette.

    The ending to this book was superb. It left me absolutely wanting to read the next book!

    This book was even better than the first one if that's possible!

    This was an incredible sequel. It really delivered everything you wanted it to, and more. Fans of the first book "Shatter Me" will love the sequel.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but Juliette and Warren made this book the best of all 3! Everyone loves an "underdog" story though. Can't wait to read the 4th!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audio! This in my opinion is better than the first book.

    This series just keeps getting better and better, can't wait to finish the next one!

    Mafi’s prose continues to be beautiful, unique, and gripping, but it doesn’t make up for what doesn’t work for me. The story is hyper heterosexual, with a love triangle that is expressed in some ways that don’t sit well with me. And, while we saw some use of the word “crazy” in the first book, it was primarily the MC convincing herself that she isn’t crazy, despite what society said about her. In this one, it is used liberally to mean stupid or uncomfortable or dangerous. Her grasp on the language should allow for vocabulary that doesn’t further stigma against mental illness, and it comes off as lazy.

    Listen to the audiobook instead of reading it a second time and all I have to say is that I love it even more than the first time around ?

    The struggle between chooshing Warner and Adam??? Just loved it
  • (5/5)
    I loved this book. It's been sitting on my TBR stack for ages and I kept putting off reading it and now I can't understand why. Well, maybe I can, I've got to wait until February for the last book! I read through the book super fast the first time because I had to know what was going to happen. Then, after I finished reading, I went back and reread parts of the book at a slower pace enjoying the story and Mafi's writing. And while we're talking about her writing - - it's so unique and distinguishable. She uses these comparisons that amaze me and make me stop and think to myself just how talented she is. These books have a strong and unique voice for Juliette. I am very interested to see what she does in future endeavors and how she makes those characters stand out.

    Okay this one is waaaaay better than the first one
    I still hate Juliette though (she gets on my nerves lol)
    Adam still annoys me a bit
    Kenji is still the best one in Omega Point
    and Warner is simply bae af

    But OH MY GOD! I freaked out when I realised that Warner(ma baby) and Adam are bros O_O
  • (5/5)
    Just as great as the first book! I really despise love triangles so that's saying a lot! I love how the story has progressed and I love that we have a new villain. He is WAY worse than Warner! There was a twist around the halfway point that I definitely didn't see coming so that is always fun! Juliette did get a little annoying at some points with keeping secrets and not telling the whole truth. I hope she has grown a little from the events in the book and will redeem herself in the next one. I am looking forward to reading what happens next!

    This is one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever had to write spoiler-free. I want to talk about everything!

    When we left Juliette at the end of Shatter Me, she was feeling confident and ready to face what was coming next. However, when Unravel Me picks up two weeks later, she seems to be retreating back into herself, back to the shy, self-conscious girl that she was while she was in isolation. It was really interesting to me to see how Juliette has regressed and why. I also enjoyed seeing her try to reintegrate into a society after being locked up and isolated for so long.

    I really loved the pacing of Unravel Me. I felt like my emotions were all over the place while I was reading it. There were funny, intense, heart-stopping, heart-wrenching, and sexy scenes. I can’t really elaborate without spoiling it, but just let me tell you that Unravel Me had so many emotions! It also left me confused. Due to several different moments and revelations throughout Unravel Me, I don’t even know what team I’m on. Team Adam or Team Warner. There were just too many intense moments to tell!

    I thought that the growth of the characters was really interesting in Unravel Me. Juliette, obviously, had the most growth. Though she regresses some at the beginning, she gains her confidence little by little as the story progresses. Then there’s a critical conversation with Kenji that leads to her finally realizing that it’s time for her to grow up, and she does. I really loved her through the second half of the book. Adam kind of goes downhill a little bit for me in Unravel Me, but I think he’ll pick himself back up in the final book. Kenji is always good for a laugh, but he also has some really important moments.

    There is a lot of hype around chapter sixty-two, specifially from Tahereh Mafi, and it was definitely a good one. But my favorite was chapter thirty-six. We get to see a different side of Juliette, and it had me cheering her on! Also, very shortly after this chapter (in chapter thirty-eight) there is a HUGE revelation that I thought was just amazing and really puts a different spin on the whole story! I won’t spoil it, but I thought it was awesome!

    I won’t say that Unravel Me ends on a cliffhanger because it ties up most of the story within it, but it definitely sets up book 3 enough that I am almost wishing I didn’t read Unravel Me yet because the last book isn’t expected to be released until NEXT February! Sounds like a reread is in my future!

    In short, I LOVED Unravel Me! I thought it was much better than Shatter Me, the characters were more developed, and it had so many emotions. I would definitely recommend it!

    BookNook — Young Adult book reviewsThis book is ridiculous confusing. And I mean that in the best way. For starters, Tahereh Mafi drops about 8 bombs on us in this book. It's like BAM big reveal, BAM bigger reveal, BAM your mind = blown. But beyond that, Unravel Me is a book that will, somehow, force you to love the bad guy despite your better judgement.To be honest, I think it helped that it had been months and months since I'd read Shatter Me, so I'd actually forgotten how cruel Warner really was. In Unravel Me we see a completely different side to him, but since I didn't remember many details from Shatter Me, it was like I was seeing Warner for the first time... and maybe he wasn't so bad. And this is one of the reasons why Unravel Me has left me completely confused. Which guy am I rooting for?"Is it even possible," he whispers, "that you can't feel this fire between us?"—Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, Page 391 I think the 'problem' with Unravel Me is that the book itself feels very much in Warner's favour. While Adam is definitely still there, he's portrayed as a much weaker, insignificant character than Warner is. I wanted to love Adam, but then Warner was here and he was stronger, and hotter, and—ignoring his psychopathic tendencies—he felt like the more logical choice. MIND = FUCKED. I kind of loved him. Then there would be a passage that was like, "Oh, remember the time Warner tried to kill Adam in a slaughter house?" and I was like... oh... this guy is actually messed up. But then, Warner would be all deep and emotional and sexy and badass-y and I'd start drooling a little.Because of Warner's total fucked up-ness and his complicatedness, he was my favourite character. The others... I wasn't quite as keen on. Juliette is definitely a complicated character. She has every right to be messed up and a little depressed, but it did get frustrating after a while. Sometimes I just wanted to tell her to grow up and deal with it. Quit complaining, quit moping, and deal with the card you've been given.And then there's Kenji. Everyone and their mother loves Kenji. Me... not so much. Kenji is an arrogant, cocky loud-mouth. To a certain extent, I can see where people like him. If you ignore his arrogance, his blatant (and probably half joking) "everyone loves me and I'm so cool" attitude, he is certainly a fierce and loyal friend (and sometimes a little funny&mdah;see quote below). But I always have a hard time looking past the arrogance. Arrogance and too much cockiness are qualities that I have a hard time looking past. It's just who I am."Mmmmmmm," he said. "You're like a sexy, super-scary plant."—Kenji, Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi, Page 173 My only other problem with Unravel Me was the internal stream of consciousness. To a certain extent, being inside Juliette's head is awesome. The metaphors are insane and there are so many highlight-able passages. Tahereh Mafi's writing overall is gorgeous and flows really well. But there's just so much THINKING. I enjoyed parts of it, but in other parts I could help but skim skim skim. There's so much of Juliette just talking to herself, rambling on and on, or making weird observations about the world around her. I like it in small chunks, but in Unravel Me it did cross a little bit into 'too much' territory. If you were to cut out all of the stream of consciousness bits, I bet this book would have been 250 pages instead of 480.But overall, I did enjoy Unravel Me. It's true that a few things didn't quite sit well with me, but I enjoyed it as a whole. The twists and surprises were intense and super fun to read about. I LOVE having bombs dropped on me and Tahereh Mafi absolutely rocks at weaving those in. Also, that ending. THAT ENDING! I wouldn't say it's a cliffhanger, but it's extremely satisfying and you'll be totally wanting to read more. Juliette finally grows some balls and I was totally rooting for her!I have a feeling that book 3 will be epic.

    Warner. What. Happened. Why. Do. I. Like. You. Now?

    I'm actually an official "Team Warner" member right now. Chapter 62 :)))

    I was so done with this series after reading Shatter Me. I disliked that book so much that I could not imagine forcing myself to read the rest of the books in the series. If I had to read one more synonym for blue, I would have lost my mind. I gave up.And then I read this book.I mostly read it because I have a few bookish friends who couldn't believe that I gave up on the series and kept telling me that it gets so much better. So, in an effort to get them off of my back (and not really believing that the series WOULD get better), I decided to read the second book.And I liked it.A lot.Damn you, Tahereh Mafi!So pretty much everything that I had problems with in Shatter Me was addressed and/or fixed in this book. Juliette grows up, fast, and she's no longer one of those love-sick puppies who can only focus on her own heart while the rest of the world goes to hell around her. It's explained why both Adam and Warner can touch Juliette while no one else can - they're half brothers, surprise! - and both of them have powers of a sort that allow them to touch her. Sort of. Because Adam's doesn't really help all that much as he relaxes more around Juliette and she almost (accidentally) kills him. Oops.So this book, surprisingly, has almost everything I could want it to have. And I'm both shocked and delighted.

    I don't know if it's a credit to the writing or not, but sometimes when reading this book, I was just as confused as the main character about who was good and bad. The character development of Warner (who was a definite bad guy in the first book) was certainly interesting in this sequel, but I have a lot of mixed feelings about him. A good continuation of Shatter Me, but not as powerful as other sequels I've read.

    Review: Unravel Me (Shatter me #2) I'm very disappointed, I really am l.

    the first book was exquisite (beautifully written I loved every word of it)
    But this one actually uninterested bored me and I was frustrated with Julliet all the time. She whine too much and hurt every one around her... I would've loved to know more about everyone else kenji, james, castle. ...

    Note:
    I hate bad love triangles and this one is the worst I've ever read
    • I already know who J is going to pick. And it's plain obvious who the guy is. So I'm not even going to read thr next one, *so disappointed that I might shed a few tears!,I was expecting so much of this serie... *

    Rescued from captivity and from Warner, the boy soldier who wants her to work for the Reestablishment, Juliette finds herself in a compound of people who are resisting the government and each have their own powers. Their leader, Castle, wants Juliette and her boyfriend, Adam, to discover their powers, but she knows it's just a matter of time before she hurts someone again.In Shatter Me Juliette learns to trust Adam; now she has to learn to trust herself. She starts out hurting and afraid and begins to grow into a stronger person as she comes to accept her power and herself, and to make new friends at the compound. I enjoyed seeing her growth and coming to see secondary characters, such as Kenji, in a new light as Juliette starts to open herself up. The sequel was even better than the first book, and I look forward to seeing how the trilogy wraps up.

    This story took so many different twists that I didn't expect. My feelings were all over the place. Sad.Happy.Angry.Shocked.Sad... and everything in between.

    I hate the turn the story took with Adam and Juliette. My heart ached for him. for her. Then Warner, crazy messed up but yet caring Warner thrown into the mix yet again. My heart breaks for him too. Him and Juliette really are more alike than she likes, more than I think I like. You see I have always always always been Team Adam, and if my heart wouldn't just shatter, I would now be Team maybe Warner. Yes, I said it and I can't believe it. I love Adam, I really do and I hate thinking that she may not end up with him. But I am really starting to care about Warner. Maybe it is because we have seen more into his soul. Juliette and him together, even just speaking, they are teetering on the edge of combusting. It hurts my heart to even write that. Because of Adam. At this point i'm not sure what team I really am anymore. Her relationship with both of them is so different, but still so alike. I can't help but wonder who she is going to choose, I do not envy her.

    The rest of the story aside from the romantic aspects were also great. The twists catching you off guard, but then make you go back and question things and realize it was in front of you the whole time. I will be on pins and needles until I can get more of this story!
