Dark and disspointing read.
Poor rating based on poor writing and virtually no character develoment....not subject matter. The writing was flat. Characters are one dimensional. Skip this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I should have stopped with this type of story after Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. It's unfair to believe that another book could come close to, or top, that one. Perhaps if I hadn't read Forbidden previously, I might have enjoyed Flawed more than I did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I think the biggest problem that I had with this book is my total disconnect to the characters. I find it really hard to enjoy a book unless I can relate to the characters or become emotionally invested in them. I wasn't able to do either in this case. I've never experienced any of the situations that Sarah did. And, I am sad to say, I never became invested in any of the characters or what was happening in their lives. Nothing in the story, not even the abuse, gripped me.
I wasn't even phased by the ending of the story. Which, by the way, I was hoping would redeem the story for me since I was pretty bored throughout the majority of the book. I even went so far as to read the alternate ending (search the author's blog to read this) in hopes that I could rate the book higher. No go.
Though this book wasn't for me (and I don't see myself recommending it to anyone specifically), Flawed has many good reviews. Read some of them, too, and then decide if this book belongs on your to-read shelf.
