Perfect by Cecelia Ahern (Review)

UK/US Cover

Release date: April 4th 2017

The thrilling, shocking and romantic sequel to the bestselling YA debut FLAWED is finally here. When we embrace all our flaws, that’s when we can finally become PERFECT…

Celestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After she was branded Flawed by a morality court, Celestine’s life has completely fractured – all her freedoms gone.

Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with the complicated, powerfully attractive Carrick, the only person she can trust. But Celestine has a secret – one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground.

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save only herself, or risk her life to save all the Flawed. And, most important of all, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed…?

I absolutely adored “Flawed” so was super excited when I received an advance copy of this via NetGalley. I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

If you enjoyed Flawed, I pretty much guarantee you will like this. It is more of the same, following Celestine and Carrick as they are trying to bring logic and compassion back to society.

It is extremely well written, with fully formed characters. There is enough intrigue, double crossing, power hungry craziness to keep you interested, and for once there was a very satisfying ending. HOWEVER it felt like an extension of the first  book. I could probably have read this without having read Flawed, as there are so many descriptions of what has gone before. That is a good thing in some ways, but I only read it a couple of months ago so it was still pretty fresh in my memory.

This was a really enjoyable read (it only took me a day), and I would highly recommend it. It was almost 5 stars, but it didn’t quite have the shock or novelty value of Flawed.

Thanks to Macmillan and NetGalley for the ARC!
