I figure since I already have this "preview," I might as well write a review for Addie Kent's novella.


When I thought I couldn't dislike him more than I did, after reading Fracture Me, Addie Kent proved me wrong. End of review.

P.S.: Just because Adam didn't turn out to be your perfect little fucking angel with a perfect little fucking personality does not mean he was falsely

To Adam fans

For some reason I thought Fracture Me would sway me (a little) to Team Adam but no such luck. Every time Kenji and Adam talked about Warner in front of Juliette she seemed generally interested in the conversation while she was practically comatose the rest of the time.

King Warner is slaying even when he's not there!

„Shit. This is even worse than I was expecting.“

Yes, that’s an actual quote from “Fracture me” and damn me if this wasn’t an adequate summary for the entire novella! *lol*

Give Adam a chance.
I thought.

Maybe he isn’t all that bad.
I was convinced.

Probably I misunderstood him the same way everyone misunderstood Warner at first.
I kind of hoped.

… And then I read “Fracture me”.

I was wrong!!!

Adam is still a stupid moron and if anything the book just confirmed my initial suspicion. That boy is actua
Hate Adam since book one, until now and forever.

I don't know Adam is just a character which does not sit right with me... always there has been something off about him.
This novella for me is a revelation. It’s also a foreshadowing. It surprises me both in good and sad way. I’m very much vocal of my adoration towards Warner but I don’t have that much hate on Adam. I liked him just fine. The reason why I don’t prefer him is that he’s sort of bland. He doesn’t have much character and something’s telling me that he wasn’t the right guy for Juliette. Then Destroy Me and Unravel Me came that showed things that support my theory. But Fracture Me, ironically, which wa ...more

Fracture Me (Shatter Me #2.5), Tahereh Mafi

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

"Juliette will not stand alone. In a battle that will decide the fate of her world. In Destroy me, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45, refuses to let her go.

UPDATE: SAY IT ISN'T SO! Adam's perspective? Really? Why in the world would you give Adam his own novella when you have WARNER (Warner!) whom you could write about. I mean, it's WARNER! Such a complex, tortured anti-hero. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Even Kenji would have been better than Adam.

UPDATE NOW THAT I'VE READ IT: I don't know how you could want Juliette to end up with Adam after reading this. Just as Destroy Me showed me who Warner really is, Fracture Me has revealed t

..........................don't read it.*cough* sorry, what was that?

Here's the thing. We've already got a few hundred pages of Adam's BS and me tearing my hair out at this point.
I swear, all that's in his mind is just:

Well, my dear asshole Adam, my amazing plan is:

Yeah, this was boring. I've not got much else to say really. I knew I wasn't going to enjoy it but mainly read it for the details. It gave us a bit of an insight into Adam but it was no think like Warner's because it just confirmed everything we already knew.

Feb 2013 - I really, really, really want this to be Kenji's story or Warner again but I'm pretty sure it's going to be Adam :( I don't dislike Adam, I just find him a little boring!

Hmm... "Fracture Me" was an okay read. I know it's not something i'll ever take the time to read again that's for sure. There were a few sad bits like, the parts with Adam and his little brother James, and the loss of so many people and of course the loss of Omega Point. Things quickly go from bad to worse, and there was so much destruction and devastation i

But I guess you can't give 0 stars on GR, so I'll give a sympathy 1 star for the Kenji and Kenji only.

First off, who thought that writing a novella in the POV of Adam was a good idea? He's so un-intresting that I've seen rocks more intriguing than him. Not to mention math.

Someone failed math, and it wasn't me. Where is the logic of more than half of the events in book 2 just being reiterated from Adams POV. It's book 2.5 meaning that all the events should be after what conspires in book
Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Weird how things can change in very short periods of time! At the beginning of this series, there were Adam and Juliette, and I couldn’t imagine anything else. Then came Destroy Me, Warner’s novella that showed a whole new side of him, and (to my own surprise) I started thinking he might be a better choice for her after all. But my heart was breaking for poor Adam. I saw him as a nice and honest – if somewhat plain – boy, not strong enough and certainly not insightful enough to fully understand ...more

Negative all the stars

I hate Adam with all my heart.
This is not a usual review. This is just a rant. None of my (sort of new) structure that I use. Just me ranting about Adam.

First off: Adam is so misoginistic and sexist. In case you haven't noticed, Juliette is a strong individual. You don't own her. Stop. You don't own her, or know what's best for her. Don't act like it. She's not a piece of property. It pisses me off that he likes her only because she's quiet and submissive. The moment she gr

Shit! This novella synopsis sounds intense. Fuuuuuuck! I'm so worried...and still torn between Adam and Warner. Love them both. Why cant Juliette have both? Ugh! I'm so nervous to read this and Ignite Me. But oh so fucking anxious. I need them both NOW!!!!

I like that Adam cares more for James than Juliette. Adam and Juliette are toxic together anyway. Also it's realistic that he cares more for his little brother who's been with him his whole life than a girl he met only a few months ago.

I'm not giving this a low rating because of Adam being an asshole because it's so obvious he's being set up to fail as a love interest. I'm just going to go along with his stick up his ass attitude.

Italian review:


I liked this novella because it made me understand Adam better.
And it made me realize that he is definitely NOT the right man for Juliette. She needs someone who can actually accept her for what she is, who doesn't have to fear her in any way, and Adam is not it. He "loves" her, in his own way, but he doesn't understand her - he loves the idea of her, but she's so much more than that and I don't think he would love the Real

i cannot rate this. i'm appalled.

what happened to the adam that i love
After reading: I don't know how to talk about this because I'm more confused than ever. Just when I decided that it has to be Warner who'll end up with Juliette, Mafi had to confuse me some more by throwing 'Fracture Me' in my face, and I'm once again stuck in the dilemma. But of course I'm still rooting for Warner and this has given me hope that he might just escape the fate with Juliette. I'm so glad I read it, because now I can take a sigh of relief, there might still be hope.

For me.

Get it?

Update: (March 2018) I enjoyed this so much more the second time around. I feel like this second read through of the series has helped me understand Adam so much more. I don’t always agree with the choices he makes, but I understand where he’s coming from and I appreciate him more for it 💕

Fracture Me is a clearly transparent attempt to shove stragglers to Team Warner.

How dare he care about his brother more than his girlfriend? How dare he long for a few minutes of peace instead of charging off ass over teakettle to save Juliette?

The playing field is skewed towards Warner, let's get that in the open. He doesn't have anyone left to care about, but Adam does.

Is that what we want, ladies? Boys with no ambition but to serve? If it is, take off your pink sweater and throw your gender

My thoughts on this book are a matter of opinion. So if you're team Adam don't hate me. *Gives you cookies and Milk

For the shorter version this book has managed to:
A. Convince me that Adam is hiding something. Something we'll probably find out in Ignite Me.
B. Confirm my belief that Juliette and Warner will be end game.
C. That Kenji is, in fact-AWESOME.
D. That Adam is not the bird. This is just a crackpot theory and I know he has the bird on his chest.

Adam gives off really strong Tamlin vibes.

So, Adam is super lame, and now we have proof. Honestly, it was so blatantly obvious that he would make a horrible partner for Juliette, that I really cant see any way that Mafi can justify them being together now. There is no way that it can happen. I never really liked Adam. He was ok in book 1 because I thought he was gonna be it, and I just went with it, but I never really loved the idea.

I found Warner more interesting from the beginning, but it wasnt until I read Destroy Me that I realized
I for one, never really cared for Adam. If anything, he only slightly annoyed me in Unravel Me. In any case, it was nice to get a glimpse of him, that he truly loves Juliette with all his heart. But the best part about him is his undying love for his brother, James which managed to move the heavy parts of my heart. ...more

-What a manipulative novella. The only reason this was written was so readers would dislike Adam and switch to Team Psycho-Warner. In Shatter Me and Unravel Me Adam was crazy in love with Juliette, he risked his life for her and would have done anything for her. Yet in this, Adam didn't give a fuck about Juliette, he didn't even care that her life was at risk. Where did that come from? How did Adam's character become so inconsistent?
The only reason Adam suddenly stopped being a perfect,
