Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi

shatter meI really enjoyed this dystopia. The story developed well over the whole book, ending in a good spot to wait for the sequel. The writing was fantastic and actually reminded me of some of my own experimental writing in my late teens/early 20s, an almost stream-of-consciousness-lite, where it follows thoughts and doesn’t always stick to grammar/punctuation rules, but easy to read as well. I liked Juliette’s personal progression through the book and am looking forward to the next installment. I also want to know more about Warner and have some specific ideas about how he ties in to Juliette’s past. My only qualm about the book was that there was too much sexual tension too often, to the point where it became a bit redundant and boring. I just have a hard time believing that people dying of bullet wounds and torture would put all that aside for sex. But other than that minor qualm, it was a very enjoyable book. Thanks for sending it my way Caitie!
