“All time favourite”.
Juliette’s touch is lethal. She has been locked up all alone in the Reestablishment for almost a year when suddenly, she meets Adam, her new cellmate. He talked about how the world outside of their cell is slowly dying and also informed her about what the Reestablishment is still planning. The Reestablishment wants to use Juliette and her lethal touch as a weapon against humanity. She has to come up with a plan, quickly, to escape from the Reestablischment. But she will need help with doing that.
What a fabulous book! It took a little while to get into, because I was not used to Tahereh Mafi’s style of writing yet. The book starts off very poetically and I wasn’t sure that was going to be my thing. But as I read on I started to love this book more and more.
The various characters is what makes the book. I immediately fell in love with Juliette and Adam. Following that, I fell in love with Kenji – Adam’s friend. Tahereh Mafi makes you either hate or love her characters which is very characteristic of her way of writing.
Once I put this book down I immediately wanted to pick up the second book! Luckily my local bookshop had a copy, so I could keep reading. New reviews will follow soon.
A good book with an easy writing style that makes you want to keep reading. A must if you love books such as Divergent and The Hunger Games. The characters are beautifully portrayed. A fabulous book!
