Review: Shatter Me - By Tehereh Mafi

Summary
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 a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior
 
Review
It was definitely an interesting start to a series. Usually the first book in a series has to be AMAZING.. It has to draw you in. Leave you wanting more. I felt that... perhaps not as much as I've felt with others... but something good nonetheless. I did have a few peeves that I couldn't get over, and perhaps that might be the reason for the three star rating. The literary devices used throughout the book.. interesting of course... a little over the top maybe? I couldn't help but feel it was just one metaphor too many?? The writing as a whole was absolutely beautiful... just a little too flashy for my taste. The story itself kept me reading. I would call this a bit of a slow starter... but all together worth that extra push to get to the end. The ending is where it all came together for me. The ending is what made me decide.. this was series I was gonna stick with. I'm interested to see where the story will go from here. Bring on the next book. I'd love to read it.
