Book Review: The Broken by Tamar Cohen

Title: The Broken
Author: Tamar Cohen
Release Date: 23rd April 2015
Rating: 4 Stars

Thanks to Netgalley who gave me an ARC of 'The Broken' in exchange for an honest review.

This book really does take you on an emotional rollercoaster of a ride. I found the majority of the characters to be unlikeable, although as the story continued and their past histories began to unfold, I could understand why they really are 'the broken' of the title.

I don't like to comment too much on unexpected twists and turns in books, but unlike other reviews I've seen, certain things didn't come as a complete surprise to me, which is why I've rated this book 4 stars instead of 5. I don't think it's a reflection on the writing, as I thought The Broken' was beautifully written. I think it has more to do with the fact that I've read a lot of books with a surprising twist in the tale, so I'm always looking out for the unexpected.

That said, I thought 'The Broken' was a wonderful book and one that I would recommend. It was my first Tamar Cohen book, but will most definitely not be my last.

A good solid 4 stars.
