Now here is where I thought the book was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC... The development of Lochan and Maya's relationship beyond brother and sister was gut wrenching. I don't mean it in the bad way either. The struggle these two had with their feelings was not what I was expecting. They knew it WAS wrong but then again how can something so wrong feel so RIGHT! These two didn't struggle with just their relationship but with their families relationship with their siblings. Lochan became the parent and like most parents they are not liked by their children. Kit the third oldest sibling was the typical 13 year old rebellious teenager and did he ever rebel. The conflict between Lochan and Kit was so sad for the anger Kit had. Kit missed having his brother Lochan. He didn't want Lochan as a father figure and disciplinarian.
Tabitha Suzuma did not just throw Lochan and Maya into a incest relationship with sex. So don't think that right off the bat that is all this book is. It deals with knowing what is right and wrong, trying to deal with their growing feelings for each other, and keeping their family together. The decisions Lochan and Maya made were literally some of the toughest decisions they had to make. The end of this book was beyond words. It is where you as the reader will appreciate the love these two had for each other. Where you will see the sacrifices made. Where you will be crying. While some reviews said the ending was horrible or did not like, I think it was perfect. You have to remember the struggles these two had and what they are willing to do to preserve their family stay together (siblings stay together - the mother can stay away forever).
This book was more pricier than most ebooks I have purchased (almost $9) but don't let the price scare you. You do need to have an open mind when reading this book and be able to handle the dynamics of the story. Otherwise you will hate this book. Tabitha Suzuma wrote about something that many authors don't want to write about and I feel she did an awesome job with the writing.
I am questioning if I will be able to overcome this book hangover. What if I never do! OMG!
Tabitha Suzuma just blew my mind and my heart into the out into the nether-regions of the universe! I am now millions of tiny fragments floating around in the cosmos and I'm not sure how to pull myself back together.
I've been on a TABOO novel binge for the past month. Forbidden has taken the crown for Taboo greatness. This story will tear your heart out!
This book pushed my boundaries, at times it made me feel uncomfortable. But I found myself loving the characters and all of their stories. I felt so much of their own pain and was so angry at how life just didn't seem to ever give them a break. It's packed full of so much, it's too hard to get into anything without giving too much away either. Just...I understand why things went where they did, Do I condone it? ... not so much, but I understand why it did happen the way it did.
In the end I have a broken heart, but that broken heart hurts so good.
WOW! Twisted Elegance is what this story is to me.
I cannot articulate to you in fair terms, just how utterly insane this book is. Forget the taboo subject matter... Okay who am I kidding? You can't forget about that. But underneath that, this is one of the most dark, alluring, beautiful, ugly, & strangely arousing; most tragic love stories I've ever read. And when I say Love, I'm talking about all faces of love. Not just romantic love, but familial, & self love. It's a coming of age story too, just in the most heartbreakingly unexpected way, is it told.
You will utter the one worded question "Why?" so many times while reading this book. And though you are given the answers to your questions, you will still be left asking the same thing. Why?
This is a story that will get beneath your skin. Beneath your very soul. Mess with your mind & have you wondering & second guessing everything you've always held such strong convictions for when it comes to the things that are touched on in this story.
Trust me, you are definitely giving up your comfort zone if you decide to read this. I only urge you to please follow through & finish.
I would HIGHLY recommend this read. It is a standalone novel.
I can't stop crying...
Love is not always as we hope. It's not always what we expect, and it can be found in the most unlikely places...if we are ever lucky enough to experience it.
Maya and Lochan did.
Lochan made the ultimate sacrifice for his sister. Something that only comes from true love.
This book gutted me and as my tears refuse to stop there's one thing I'm certain of...I'll never be able to forget their story.
