Review of Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Picture1
Synopsis

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.

My Reaction

This book has tested me.

It has seriously challenged my preconceptions, given me a new understanding about why we love what we love despite our better judgement.

I should have hated this book. I should be writing a ragey review condemning everyone who five-starred it.

There is so much wrong with this book. I even wrote a massive list when I was only halfway through.


The list only grew as the book went on.

I should hate the ridiculous lack of credible world-building.
But I don’t care.

I should hate Juliette’s weaknesses.
I don’t care.

I should be livid at the amount of sins this book has committed; the same sins I have rage-reviewed the shit out of other books for committing.
I genuinely do not care.


Juliette is just such a powerful character. Her problems just resonate so strongly in me, the way she’s written is just perfect. I love her so much I can forget about everything that’s wrong with the rest of the book. That is how much it affects me.

I don’t understand what’s happening, but I have a new understanding for people who five-star completely shit books; the kind of books that make me question their intelligence.

I have learned. I have been seriously schooled.

When there is but one element of a story that just does it for you, does it so hard you can’t actually believe the author has actually captured it so perfectly, nothing else matters.

I don’t care that the rest of the book is objectively shit. I don’t care. I love it.
