A Conversation About Author Tahereh Mafi

Kami Garcia is the co-author of the bestselling Beautiful Creatures Novels and Unbreakable. Ransom Riggs is the author of the bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Kami and Ransom got together to talk about Tahereh Mafi, and her new novel Unravel Me.

Ransom Riggs: You are doing a mash-up of your book/series and the Shatter Me series. What’s the title?

Kami Garcia: I would have to go with Beautiful Unraveled Creatures or Unbreakable Me. For your book, it would have to be Miss Peregrine’s Home for Shattered Children.

KG: Describe Tahereh’s novels in one word. You have five seconds…

RR: Unputdownalicious!

RR: Adam or Warner. Five seconds…

KG: I only need one second --Warner. People will have to read Unravel Me to find out why.

KG: Between you and Tahereh, who would win in a race?

RR: Tahereh, because she has an amazing collection of shoes, and I’m pretty sure at least one pair has rocket engines in the heels.

RR: Let’s get serious – at least as serious as the two of us can get. It seems like a new dystopian novel is published every day now. What made the Shatter Me series stand out in the crowd for you?

KG: When Shatter Me opens, Juliette is in a cell, and she hasn’t spoken to or touched another person in 264 days. Tahereh had me right there. I hadn’t seen that before, and all I wanted to know was why can’t she touch anyone? Once that question was answered, all I wanted to know was how is Juliette going to get out of this prison and save herself -- and oh, who is this incredibly hot guy, Adam? Every time one of my questions was answered, there was another question waiting. Until three o’clock in the morning when I finished the book, and desperately searched online to find the release date for the sequel.

KG: One of the things that struck me most about Shatter Me & Unravel Me is Tahereh’s writing style. I read a lot of books, and her voice is so unique. It sucked me in immediately, and I felt like I was part of the story. What aspect of the novels stood out to you?

RR: The emotion that radiates from every page. Juliette goes through Hell and back in these books, and though there’s a lot of really compelling action, Tahereh always keeps the reader focused on what Juliette is feeling through it all – and this character feels things very intensely and deeply. Juliette’s inner voice is like nothing I’ve read before.

RR: I know you believe in “the curse of the sequel.” How did Unravel Me measure up?

KG: The curse of the sequel is when a mind-blowing novel is followed by disappointing sequel that do not raise the bar in terms of the writing, plot, or characters. Often it’s a sausage link -- a book that functions as a bridge between the book one and three, with no story arc of its own. Tahereh broke the bar with Unravel Me. She answers questions raised in Shatter Me, while seamlessly introducing a new plotline that ratchets up the stakes, action, and romance for Juliette, Adam, Warner – and the reader.

KG: Who is your favorite character from the Shatter Me series?

RR: Maybe it’s a cop-out to say this, because everyone’s always choosing between Adam and Warner, but my favorite character has to be Juliette herself. She starts the first book as someone who’s practically been driven insane by isolation and deprivation, and over the course of Shatter Me, Destroy Me, and Unravel Me, she makes a really incredible transformation. A series of them, really. It’s totally engrossing to watch her change – and I can’t wait to see what happens to her in the final book!

RR: If Tahereh were a character in one of your books, who would she be?

KG: Tahereh would definitely be Lena -- a smart and powerful woman, who isn’t afraid to be herself in a world that encourages women to conform.

KG: Let’s talk about the cover of Unravel Me. As a photographer, what were your thoughts when you first saw it? Did it call up any specific associations?

RR: Well, I thought it was beautiful! And haunting, and unusual. I love how much detail there is – the more you look, the more is revealed. I had to turn it face-down on my nightstand when I wasn’t reading it, though, because I swear that eye was looking at me.

RR: If you could borrow one thing from Tahereh, what would it be?

KG: Her “Shatter Me” shoes -- those platforms she covered in shards of mirror.

From Booklist

Ready for round two? The war between the Reestablishment and its citizens is ramping up in this sequel to the steamy dystopia Shatter Me (2011). Juliette escaped from Warner and is learning the ropes of living in Omega Point, the headquarters for the resistance. There is some effort to train her to use her powers to help in the war, but she is just as interested in exploring the new world of being touched by her friend and love interest Adam. Adam is not the only one vying for her attention. Cue up the love triangle: Warner is being held captive at Omega, too, and he still wants Juliette to join forces with him. The first volume’s fans will be thrilled with the secrets unveiled in this one; others might feel more like the rebel trainer, Kenji, when he says to Juliette, “Stop crying. . . . Make a choice and stop wasting everyone’s time.” Here’s hoping that the impending war will bring some much needed action to the series in the next installment. Grades 8-12. --Cindy Dobrez

Oh sweet mother of all things good and evil. This story has my emotions wrecked. There are just so many feels.. It's almost as if I've been on one hell of a roller coaster ride a little too long. I may have experienced every emotion possible as I read UNRAVEL ME. Not only did this story cut way deep down but I was also able to see several sides of a few of the characters. It was like meeting them again for the first time.

By the end of SHATTER ME Juliette had begun to grow into herself and started dealing with the fact that she was a monster different... she was special. Juliette has powers and she was beginning to believe for the first time in her life that she was not a monster, that she was in fact a very special and extraordinary young lady. That is not at all the Juliette that we came back to in UNRAVEL ME. Within the two weeks of being at Omega Point it seems that Juliette has lost all self-esteem and reverted back to the frightened and withdrawn child that she was in the very beginning. Let's just say that I wasn't completely thrilled about this. I was am quite fond of the strong, independent young lady that believes in herself and when she's got that confidence she totally rocks it.

While Juliette spends her days hiding away from everyone and feeling sorry for herself, the rest of the people at Omega Point go on with their daily routines. It doesn't take too long before Juliette is put in her place and slowly begins to come back around. Now. That's what I'm talking about. This is who we all want. The bad ass Juliette. The girl who will not let anyone or anything hurt the ones she cares for. Now that we've went through a complete mental make-over with Juliette, we spend more time with Kenji and see a different side of him as well.

I can summarize the whole book for you right here:

It's all my fault I'm sorry I'm so sorry I'm so confused confused confused I need to take some time to think about my feelings 1 2 3 seconds pass I'm still confused I'm so sorry It's all my fault. The End.

I've realized something - it's pretty much impossible to enjoy a book when you hate the narrator. I hated Juliette. In this book she is weak, pathetic and above all, SELFISH. No cool plot twist (there wasn't one anyway) or awesome supporting character (Kenji!) could completely make up for the agony of reading this story through her eyes. **SPOILER** The only times I liked her were when she went all loco and used her super duper strength powers, but those times were few and short lived. Then she'd just go back to her usual self-absorbed weepy self. When she gets shot at the end, I actually got a little hopeful that she'd just die and a different character would take over as the narrator. But no, those damn twins helped heal her. I hate them. Stupid twins.*END SPOILER*

My only enjoyment came from the scenes with Kenji and, to a lesser extent, Warner. Great character development for those two.

I hate leaving a series unfinished but I don't know if I'll be able to stomach the next book. I do want to know what happens next, and am a little hopeful that we see a better version of Juliette, but I just don't know. I didn't really like this one much.

I absolute fell in love with the story and the writing in Shatter Me. I devoured Destroy Me and couldn't wait to get my hands on Unravel Me. Although dystopia is probably my least favorite genre and I tend to avoid the majority of dystopia books, I couldn't help myself when it comes to this series. Although I really like Adam in the first book, there was always something about Warner that fascinated me. Call me sick and twisted but I wanted to know more about the ruthless guy that he was and how he became that way. In Destroy Me, I got exactly what I was looking for and more. I was nervous going into this book because I was so torn over these two boys. But Tahereh Mafi made it easy for me to pick a team by the end of the book and I am even more excited to read more of this series.

After Juliette and Adam narrowly escape from Warner, they are now staying with Kenji at Omega Point which is a place for gifted people like Juliette. People who are planning a rebellion against The Reestablishment. Naturally, Juliette has a hard time fitting in. When new developments start tearing her and Adam apart, Juliette starts questioning her life. So she does the whole `I can't be with you because I'm too dangerous' thing. I have to admit, I rolled my eyes so hard at this point I swear I saw my brain. In her case I kind of got it though. Still, it was hard to see them both miserable, especially Adam! Luckily, Kenji was there to try to lighten the mood. Just when it looks like things might be getting better between Juliette and Adam, Warner is back in the picture.

Warner. *Sigh* It takes a talented author to make you swoon over a heartless killer. When I started reading Shatter Me and I kept seeing that there were actually people that are Team Warner, I thought they were crazy.

SPOILERS ALERT:

It took me 8 hours to finish Shatter Me - it took me 8 days to finish Unravel Me. Guess that says it all about how I felt about this book - i.e. Unravel me is quite below par compared to its predecessor.

The reason this book did not work was because of Juliette. She's so scared and indecisive most of the time; cowering and escaping from her responsibilities and her power. The first 50-60% of the book is just meandering self-absorption and self-obsession on Juliette's part. All she's thinking about is herself, her own problems, her love life with Adam etc... The rest of the world can hang itself as far as she's concerned - or that's what it feels like to the reader.

Once Warner is brought into the picture again, the story gets a bit better. That is until she spoils it all again by not even trying to get information from Warner about the hostages. Instead, she's fixated again by her attraction to and feelings for Warner - and she's thinking about how he can keep distracting her from asking about her friends. If my friends were being held captive by a sadistic commander, probably being tortured for information, I doubt I'll be obsessing over how gorgeous Warner is instead of trying to get him to tell me about where my friends might be. Honestly, she disgusted me during these parts. Eventually, Warner is the one who proactively volunteers information about the hostages. She never even asks ONCE - she's never truly concerned about anyone but herself.

This is one of those books that made me angry, so I kept leaving it to read something else. That's why it took 8 whole days to force myself to finish it, to see if it'll redeem itself at the end. Sadly - it doesn't.
