Publisher's Summary

The stunning YA debut from internationally best-selling author Cecelia Ahern.

Celestine North lives a perfect life. She's a model daughter and sister, she's well liked by her classmates and teachers and she's dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan. But then Celestine encounters a situation in which she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found Flawed.

In this stunning novel, best-selling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society in which perfection is paramount and mistakes are punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

    "Great idea but..."

    I thought the ending was disappointing leaving too much unresolved and sorry but if I hear the phrase 'my heart was racing in my chest' once more I might scream 😊 otherwise really good concept

    very disappointed with this book. I normally love Cecelia Ahern, but I really struggled with this & found the narrative annoying. 🙁

    "this book had me gripped"

    This book had me gripped from the beginning. It gave me chills and was a harsh story. I couldn't stop thinking about this book when I was busy with other tasks. This story will live with me in my mind for a long time.

    "Love, Love, Love!!!"

    I was gripped the whole way through such a brilliant story definitely one of Cecelia's best. Only problem is I don't think I can wait a whole year for the sequel!!

    "Loved it"

    I must admit I did find it took me a while to get into this book but once I did it had me gripped!! Such a plausible governmental atrocity on our society brought to fruition from Aherne's great imagination and writing skills!!!

    "Brilliant - now to perfection"

    I've read most of Cecelua Ahern's books - Flawed and Perfection her best by far. Needed to listen to them constantly. Superb - they really make you think! I'm sure that is the reaction required as we become less tolerant and more strident in our search for everything perfect. Well done and thank you Cecelia

    "gripping and addictive book."

    I found the book gripping mostly and i could listen to it for hours and hours. I've never read a book like this. id never imagined such a world and system like the guild could exhist. I was swept away into celestines world. i found some of the plot a bit predictable tho. i like to be suprised.

    Story
    "Difficult read, but sorry, did not like it."
    Would you try another book written by Cecelia Ahern or narrated by Aysha Kala?

    I have read many of her other books, and enjoyed them to varying degrees. PS I Love you, loved it, but she normally is not a difficult read.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cecelia Ahern? Why or why not?

    Yes, I have downloaded the sequel to this one. Despite not liking the book, it was compelling to get to the end, albeit that was poor, so I will persevere with Perfect. But yes, of course I will try others.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    It was OK. Didn't like her interpretation of some of the characters, but the main character was OK.


    Did Flawed inspire you to do anything?

    No. Thank God. A very silly storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    Mixed emotions. I didn't like the description of the cruelty, although appreciate it was pivotal to the story; however, I don't expect this from a book by Aherne. I kept going to the end just to see what would happen, but was shocked how suddenly it finished, leaving it up in the air. Let's see what Perfect doers.
