S she doesn’t hurt anyone else no one really cares The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a year old girl Diseases are destroying the population food is hard to find birds don’t fly any and the clouds are the wrong colorThe Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things so I deserve a medal for finishing this bookLike the Olympic gold medal in the Anti DNF Games people Rant AheadIt took me three months to finish this bookTHREE Not 3 Miss MafiNow normally I would have tossed this book out the window like an overwrought Silver Linings Playbook Bradley Cooper being that I AM the ueen of the heartless page 15 DNF; however I find that I have a harder time DNFing something when I am 1 Reading a physical copy as opposed to a digital copy and 2 When I already OWN books two and three and am hoping to FUCK I didn't waste my money That said this book annoyed me on several different levels 1 Juliette's power or glitch or whatever the hell it is is never fully explained in detail It's skirted around in a mass of overwrought metaphors and complete bullshit 2 Said overwrought metaphors3 The writing itself in general Despite having a degree in English and Literature I am usually pretty easygoing about typos and grammar especially when it comes to self published stuff I mean just LOOK at the slang and vernacular I use in my reviews I am NOT a hard ass about this stuff HOWEVERWhen I am holding a professionally published FINISHED copy of a mass produced book and it contains strikeouts sentences starting in lowercase letters and numbers one through ten incorrectly placed in number form eg Juliette has 2 hands and 0 1 brain my inner grammar maven's granny panties get twisted so far up her ass it's impossible to focus I mean I GET that this was all a stylistic choice etc That the sporadic all over the place SHITTY sentence structure was supposed to reflect Juliette's instability or whatever the fuck it was supposed to reflect but I just can't get behind starting a sentence with 4 my friends Add to that the insta love between Juliette and Adam and the spindly world building of a completely unclear and poorly wrought dystopian society and you have a wreck of a book that merely has a pretty cover Now I am left with the crushing decision of whether or not I try book two since I like an idiot already bought it or if I just march the whole trilogy down to my favorite used book store and hope the fact that this series is about to have a new book published gets me top dollar Decisions decisions

Shatter MeThey 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 than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body Maybe she’s exactly what they need right nowJuliette has to make a choice Be a weapon Or be a warrio Shat­ter Me oth­er­wise known as When Cre­ative Writ­ing Class Goes WrongI am all for exper­i­men­tal writ­ing for stretch­ing your abil­i­ties and try­ing to find fresh ways to express ideas 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 book is that writ­ing There are plenty of exam­ples that I can give as evi­dence – but I shall stick with two rel­a­tively short ones“His eyes scan the sil­hou­ette of my struc­ture and the slow motion makes my heart race 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”The absence of courage Are you fuck­ing kid­ding me We have a word for that I believe that is almost the dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tion of the word cow­ard I would explain what was wrong with the rest of the para­graph too but I want to keep this review to a 10000 word the­sis at max“I always won­der about raindropsI won­der about how they’re always falling down trip­ping over their own feet break­ing their legs and for­get­ting their para­chutes as they tum­ble right out of the sky toward an uncer­tain end”rightI get artis­ti­cally that Mafi wanted to expose her read­ers to the mind of a girl whose san­ity is frag­ile and ues­tion­able and that she’s try­ing to show this through the prose I don’t think the effect works or is done par­tic­u­larly well I think the work­ings of a trou­bled mind would result in than bad analo­gies and a bunch of num­bers Despite the fact that Juliette’s back­story and premise is inter­est­ing we still end up with the same mun­dane cookie cutter hero­ine that can be seen in the vast major­ity of Young Adult lit­er­a­ture The only thing insane about this novel is how pre­dictable and trite it is It would not be com­pletely unrea­son­able to ues­tion my san­ity in regards to read­ing Young Adult novelsWhen are pop­u­lar young adult authors going to pro­vide to the char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of their main pro­tag­o­nists than Irre­sistible uniue out­sider in love with a guyCan’t male pro­tag­o­nists have other ual­i­ties than in love with main char­ac­ter hot tragic back­story to illicit exces­sive broodingThe entire premise of Shat­ter Me promised some­thing dif­fer­ent and new Yet we still end up with the same bland old fareThe plot and pac­ing is awk­ward and cum­ber­some Even when sit­u­a­tions are sup­posed to be tense there is a sense of bore­dom and pre­dictabil­ity I feel sad that this is yet again another dis­ap­point­ing dystopian Young Adult novel that will join its sis­ters in the Mediocre Hall of I Can’t Be StuffedBut if you do decide to visit at least you get a free shirt One last thing view spoiler– the end­ing That pissed me off the most Xavier’s school for Mutants in Rebel­lion of the Oppres­sive Dystopian Régime FML And the suit using that word loosely that they pro­vide for her at the end Yeah that’s great Doesn’t EVERY woman look at this suit and just say to them­selves “Yes I can’t wait to wear this This doesn’t objec­tify me as a woman degrade me as a human being and make an embar­rass­ment out of every­one involved Not At AllIt’s like the mutant ver­sion of fan­tasy armour for women And as we all know Women’s armour sucks” hide spoiler
