Sara's Face, Hardback
3 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Sara is going to have a face transplant. She has allowed herself to be drawn into the orbit of a highly manipulative and ruthless pop-star.

He is going to take her discarded face to cover his own scarred and damaged one.

But as the time of the operation approaches, those closest to her suspect that Sara is changing her mind.

Is she being pressured into it? Is the wealthy pop-star her benefactor - or her gaoler?

This is one weird book...written in part like a fan magazine. The point of view keeps jumping around and it was impossible to get a real view of Sara...which was probably the point. Strange...too strange for me to really like it and very creepy.

I found this really strange, scary and couldn't get myself to finish it. Very weird. I usually really like Melvin Burgess. Also I couldn't get my head round the writing style, it's not like his usual stuff.

Read date: 2007 or '08.<br/><br/>I remember thinking this was the most fucked up book I'd ever read in my life. Melvin Burgess has a way with words, that's for sure. He can turn a simple story into mystery and murder and he will hook you in from the very first page.
