Read Book* *Different edition
The stunning YA debut from internationally bestselling 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-ch...more
I am girl of definitions, of logic, of black and white.And she's just as boring and spiritless as that quote indicates. This book is dull, bland, and yet another prime example of failed YA dystopia. It was inoffensive, if you can call, a nonsensical dystopian future and a standard love triangle inoffensive, among its other faults.
I can't stop using the word bland. It was so bland. It is so flavorless. Have you ever had plain instant oatmeal? It's kind of like that. Only instead o ...more
I think this book is like marmite. You either love it or hate it.
I hate marmite.
I loved this book.
On finishing this book I was lost for words, speechless. All I could think to say consisted of a string of inappropriate and incoherent expletives. My mind was blank. All I could think about was the next book, when it would come, what would happen.
I thought that the main character, Celestine, was an intriguing mix of strong and weak, brave and cow ...more
"I-M-P-E-R-F-E-I-T-O-S" -- Que título divinal!
Que sensação de extrema empatia se apodera de mim ao contemplar esta capa!
Porque imperfeitos somos todos, não é assim?!
Uns mais, outros menos, é certo!
Em graus que se ordenam numa escala invisível mas latente, concebida por um ser perfeito, contudo inexistente.
Não obstante, é a perfeição que buscamos.
Essa meta inatingível que nos faz avançar sem nunca lá chegar, por ordem de Sua Majestade a Rainha D. Consciência!
Imagine-se agora uma ...more
This is one of those YA utopian societies in the near future that is actually really messed up and run by tyrannical a-holes. I happen to LOVE these types of stories and this one did not disappoint. It grabs you from the beginning and there are pretty much things going on nonstop.
The premise is that a society has adopted rules against using individual judgment, too much risk-taking, lying, morals, and when you "break" these rules, you don't go to jail or be executed. You are branded, literally, ...more
“I bite my lip as the tears stream. I think of little Ewan, how scared he would be, how I have bought such danger to my family.”
This was an enjoyable YA dystopian story, about a society in which people were branded as ‘flawed’ if they did something wrong.
I liked Celestine, although she really needed to think more before acting. Even though the things she d ...more
I actually loved this book which I really didn't expect, when I first started reading it I wasn't sure about how it was written but the more I read then I understood the dialogue.
Flawed is about a young girl Celestine who lives in a place where everything has to be perfect, perfect family, perfect boyfriend, perfect life but it's all about to change. If people are found not to be perfect they are branded like cattle ...more
Flawed centers around a young girl named Celestine, who lives in a dystopian world where everyone is forced to be perfect, or is punished by getting their flesh branded and be Scarlet-Letter'd with an "F" armband for "Flawe ...more
Beats all the lies you can invent.”
Cecelia Ahern, the international best-selling author, pens her new YA book, Flawed which marks as the first book in the new YA dystopian series by the same name. Now the regular Ahern fans might have mixed feelings about this book, where the regular YA dystopian lovers might just love this book. The book unfolds the story of a high school teenager who is perfect in every possible way, but soon her perfecti ...more
I've enjoyed Ahern's adult books and had high hopes for this, but stopped after about 60 pages. If you're a diehard, will-read-any-dystopian-you-can-get-your-hands-on kind of reader, then definitely check this out. If, like me, you're suffering dystopian fatigue, you might want to try a few pages first.
I found the set-up predictable with a side of WTF. After a financial collapse, some Guild (?) decides to throw out anyone in any position of power who is dishonest or unethical. Maybe ...more
Celestine North é uma adolescente de dezassete anos de idade, linda e muito inteligente, uma rapariga Perfeita com uma perspectiva de vida brilhante.
Num futuro próximo há um país e uma cidade, sem nome, que criou um tribunal chamado Guilda, constituído por um comité que investiga e supervisiona os indivíduos que são acusados de serem Imperfeitos. ”Os imperfeitos são cidadãos normais que cometeram erros morais e éticos.” Quem for acusado e em função de cinco falhas de carácter a sua pele é marcad ...more
The concept is slightly reminding of the Nataniel Hawthorne's A-letter, only taken to new abysmal heights.
When I step outside, I see Colleen standing at her family’s car. The front door of her house is open, and she looks like she’s waiting. I guess she won’t be going to school today, probably going to the courthouse to her mom’s trial. My heart be ...more
Sou fã de Cecelia Ahern pela forma como cria histórias diferentes, com toques de irrealidade, mas sempre tão possíveis de acontecer. Este seu último livro não é excepção e a autora conseguiu criar uma história que dá muito que pensar…
Imaginemos um país onde todos têm que ser perfeitos, de acordo com determinados padrões que foram definidos no passado por um grupo de pessoas.

It would be incredibly frightening if this dystopia were to happen in today's society.
It's a reading that we consume very fast, I couldn't stop reading, I wanted to know more and more, I confess I was enjoying it so much that... I wanted more. And the book ends in an exciting part, I wanted to read the sec ...more
I feel like I could've liked this book way more than I did, if only for a few changes. While it started off slow, things picked up some when Celestine is accused of being flawed, in other words, imperfect. But then things died down again, when they had so much potential to be great from there. I just couldn't connect with Celestine's character. She was very naïve, even after people showed her their true colors. She put herself in dum ...more
Author Ceceila Ahern does a brilliant job of getting down to the meat of feelings and trauma and examining how Celestine has had ...more
This had one of the most brutal dystopian settings I have ever read. Can you imagine a world where you are punished for making the first ever mistake? And not just for a duration, but your entire life. This Celestine North's life. Being perfect and flawless..This is what she has become. Obviously we know this can't last long, she ends up maki ...more
DNF @ 28%
It has been a while since I have read anything by Cecelia Ahern, being her first foray into YA Dystopia I was interested too see how she would spin it.
For me at over a quarter of the book read, I kind of feel something of note needed to have happened, but I was so disconnected from the story, and so little had been absorbed I can't even remember the names of the main characters.
The only thing that really sticks in the mind is that a lot of the traits, rules, ...more
Flawed has such an intriguing concept! This dystopian tells the story of a perfect society whe ...more
