The invention provides a method of fracturing, including the provision and use of a fracturing fluid suspension containing an effective amount of a solid particulate breaker material having delayed breaking or degradation characteristics, additionally including an amount of durable fibers and/or platelets sufficient to enhance wellbore solids, such as proppant, transport. In a preferred aspect, solid particulate matter, which comprises or is composed of a specified organic polymeric compound or composition having an average molecular weight of at least 10,000, or a mixture of such compounds or compositions, and which solid organic polymeric matter reacts or decomposes, as described, is combined in a fracturing fluid with or containing a specified gellant and proppant, to form a fracturing fluid suspension, and the suspension formed is pumped downwell and deposited as a gelled suspension in the subterranean formation, generally under fracturing conditions.
