Review/Discussion: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi


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.

Plot: This book was an absolute breeze to get through, I read it so fast, I even surprised myself. I felt totally invested in the story in this one, it was a lot faster pace than the first one, I was totally engrossed and addictive! The plot twists in this one… I DID NOT see coming, I was quite shocked. I am now definitely invested in this story and I MUST know what happens.
However, the love triangle is in full swing in this novel…

Same old Juliette, I did like her a bit more in this one and she didn’t annoy me as much. I did feel sorry for her, it’s got to be awful to not be able to touch anyone and worry about killing people accidentally. I do feel like some of the characters are a bit harsh toward her, sometimes.
I still don’t understand why the fandom hates Adam so much. Give the dude a break! He seems nice enough to me, I was wary of him in the first book, since I know the fandom hates him and I thought he’d do something in this book to make me hate him, but he hasn’t? Maybe he’ll become a douche in the next one?
Okay, so I kinda see how people like him… but still…
I still think it’s weird how he had an obsession and was ‘in love’ with Juliette before even knowing her. He’s definitely a misunderstood, clearly got some psychological issues and I can sympathise with him but also not at the same time? Like there’s no excuse to be a knob, you can totally change if you are determined but he just won’t. Annoying!
He has potential to be a somewhat decent bloke and maybe he’ll redeem himself in Ignite Me.

*Update: Since finishing the third book my opinions have changed (lol) – a review of Ignite Me will be up soon.

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Let’s be friends!
