Book Review: Shatter Me

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice:
BE A WEAPON. OR BE A WARRIOR.

My Thoughts:

I loved it. I know that a lot of people don’t like the the lined out thoughts of Juliette. So those are a hit or miss with people. I have to say, I love them. I find it interesting to see her thoughts. And it gets less the more the character grows. Right now I love Adam, I know a lot of people changes their mind, I can’t say if I have yet.

I loved the plot of the story. I loved to follow Juliette and see where everything is going. Learning new things all the time that you didn’t know in the start. And just being confused on what will happen in the next book, but the next book I will read from this world is the 1.5 story called Destroy Me, which is set from Warner’s point of view, who is the person you aren’t supposed to like in book 1.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
