Book Review - Untouchable by Sibel Hodge

Title: Untouchable
Author: Sibel Hodge
Release Date: September 20th 2016
Rating: 4 stars

Thank you to TBC and the publisher who gave me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

'Untouchable' is a gritty, real and very believable story of child abuse that encompasses the lengths some perpetrators, especially those in a position of power, will go to to cover up their crimes.  A hard hitting psychological thriller, with many twists and turns along the way, this is a story of secrets and lies that kept me gripped throughout.

I can't say 'Untouchable' is a book I enjoyed, although it is a book that will stay with me. There were times when I had to put it down as some of the chapters, although very well written, were just too painful and horrific to read without giving myself a breather in between. That being said, I do think this is an important subject to tackle, and Sibel Hodge has done so with a sensitivity that would be difficult to achieve in the hands of a less skilled writer.

If you love hard hitting, gritty and disturbing stories then 'Untouchable' will be the perfect book for you. A disturbing read that will stay with me, and one that I recommend only if you're able to cope with themes of paedophilia and suicide.

A hard hitting 4 stars.
