Cecelia Ahern, the international best-selling author, pens the sequel to the Flawed, an YA dystopian series, called, Perfect that opens with the protagonist on the run as a fugitive from the society that labelled and branded her as the most Flawed, despite of her kind and perfect heart, and time is running short and that she mu ...more

i enjoyed this story a lot! it is one of a kind. i love the author, the way she presents the reality we often ignore.
for me, flawed and perfect are her best book so far. this books remaind me why i started reading each of them.
the stories are fresh, emotional, profund and a great lesson.
a must from cecelia ahern. ...more
In a society where there is no justice for people who made innocent mistakes, Celestine did it. She turned the story in her favour! And damn, it felt good! I was a little bit worried about the end, because I didn’t know who will she pick, ...more
Celestine North is the most Flawed person there is, just for standing up for basic human rights, and going against the Guild. Now on the run, Celestine can't trust anyone.

I don't really have a lot to say about this one because if you're planning on reading it then you've probably already read Flawed. And this is pretty much more of the same really. The writing was consistent in its refreshing simplicity and the story was well paced with lots of action to maintain interest. It was also clearly well thought out because at one point I thought I'd picked up a little flaw in the plot, but no soon ...more
The plot picks up a few days after the end of Flawed. The last time we saw Celestine she was running away from home and the judge. Now, she found temporary safety at her grandfathers farm. But she can't stay there forever. The whistleblowers, most importantly her former whistleblower Mary May, and the Guild still hunting her and she becomes more and more a symbol of resistance.
I really enjoyed the first book in this duology. ...more
First, let me just say that I love the fact that Flawed was a duology and wasn’t dragged on and on like other series have been. I think two books was the per ...more
Honestly, I thought she was pretty decent in Flawed, and I expected so much more from her. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a Mare Situation™ - when a character turns ridiculous, stupid and annoying in the sequel.
Here's the thing - she's on the run, she has lots of problems to deal with and yET she has time for a bit of insta-love (they sleep together a ...more
I just can't do it anymore. Book 1 was so good for the first 40% and then sooo bad; and here's book 2 with even worse writing than the last half of book 1. If I didn't know any better I'd say that someone wrote the first half of book 1 and a totally different person wrote the rest and has carried into book 2.
This is book 2 in a series that has a brilliant dystopian premise. Right up there with Divergent and Hinger Games for creativity and impact. Unfortunately the rest of it is painfu ...more
Did I really use the words “a definitely extreme roller coaster ride of emotions” on Flawed??? Did I really do that?? I thought that Flawed is already an extreme roller coaster ride. But NO. It isn't the Flawed that is extreme. It is Perfect that is extreme. And I'm sure of it.
Perfect continues the story of Celestine North and her society that implements a system where perfection is a must and where there is no room for any imperfections or flaws. Having found that you have imperfections and/o ...more

This is disappointing to say the least. The premise of this duology had so much potential, and after a fairly 'meh' experience of Flawed, I had hoped that Perfect would finish the series in some sort of incredible, completely mind blowing fashion.
It did not. In fact, I found the ending to be the weakest part. Everything wrapped up a little too easily and quickly.
My main issue with this series is the romance. It could have been a ...more
It was a really good conclusion if you're a fan of books with political scenes and tones, books with a semi dystopian world or books with character growth I would recommend this one !!! ...more
A few years ago, I fell dizzily in love with YA Dystopia books. But my love affair swiftly came, and went . After a while, they all felt the same. I burnt out on the insta-love, the ya troupes, and the empowered teenagers who saved the world every time. Perfect by Cecelia Ahern pulled me back into the genre, simply because I enjoy her adult fiction. And I’m glad. It was a read that entertained and reminded of lots of pluses about this ge ...more
The irony of justice is that the feelings that precede it and those which fruit from it are never fair and balanced. Not even justice itself is perfect.
4 solid stars
I enjoyed "Perfect" nearly as much as "Flawed" before, it was a really good conclusion and answered pretty much all of my questions.
The story picks up exactly where it left us before, so I had no difficulties getting back into the story.
I still liked Celestine and loved that she really evolved as a character until she finally becam ...more
#1) Flawed ★★★☆☆
This book was completely unremarkable. The writing was bland, so dry and simple that it put me to sleep. The characters were overly dramatic and stale as month old biscuits. Celestine is genuinely unlikable, especially after the drama she created about Carrick. The romance could not have been any less monotonous, cliched or horrifyingly cringe-worthy if it tried. I literally rolled my eyes more times than I care to admit. The secondary characters had no personality and were gener ...more
I'm actually torn because these books were so packed full of YA tropes that I should have hated them. The good girl turned bad. The misunderstood sister/mother. The love triangle with a guy from either side of the divide. The standoff with the big bad guy in power who says it's for the good of the people blah bl ...more
i wasn’t a big fan of the romance in the first book. i didn’t like either love interests, and i felt that neither the romantic subplots nor the characters got the development the needed. they were just kinda there.
i love how perfect had a lot more action in it than flawed. it felt str ...more
I wasn't the biggest fan of Flawed to begin with, but I was curious to see how the story ended up. I did think this was slightly better than Flawed, but it still missed the mark for me.
It still bothered me how many times Celestine repeated herself. Especially about being Flawed and having six brands and all of that jazz. It felt like I was being hit of the head with that information a couple of times.
I still don't see the chemistry between Celestine and Carrick. I also don't see the c ...more
Ahern's writing style is brilliant. Following Celestine's thought process is amazing as she grows and develops, learns from her mistakes, questions the world around her and everything she's been taught to believe is tru ...more
