Tek sevmediğim nokta.. Olaylar sırasıyla yazılmamıştı.. Bazı yerler röportaj havasındaydı bunlar hikayeyi biraz kopuk yapıyordu o kadar.

I remember thinking this was the most fucked up book I'd ever read in my life. Melvin Burgess has a way with words, that's for sure. He can turn a simple story into mystery and murder and he will hook you in from the very first page.
I found Sara’s Face a very difficult book, not because I disliked it, not because it disturbed me, but precisely for the opposite reason: when I finished the book, I felt nothing. It’s not really the sort of book you want to walk away from feeling completely unaffected, but I did ...more

Why would someone repeatedly go under the knife to the point of losing their face? Why would they recruit someone else to make the exact same mistakes they did? How far would they go to fix what they'd done to themselves, particularly at the expense of someone else? And how much money would it take to buy your loyalty enough to look the other way while someone destroys another human being ...more
