Beauty by Peter Liney
When cosmetic and transplant surgery get together and beauty becomes a commodity that can be bought and sold, the Rich become more beautiful, the Poor less. But if something can be traded, it can also be stolen – brutally, violently, by the feared face-stealers, and to a point where the rich finally cry ‘Enough! . . . Enough. Make us plain; make us ordinary.’ Now there is no beauty left, not as we once knew it, only photos, videos, exhibitions. And yet . . . you still hear the occasional rumor.
When I read the summary of this book I was immediately intrigued. Books like this always seem to hook me. It is hard to stick to me tar list when a great sounding book comes in.
Beauty started a bit slow but if you stick with it you won't be disappointed. The plot of this story is great! You can honestly picture the events happening. It's actually pretty scary! Once the action starts, you don't want to put this book down.
There were very few things that I had issues with in this book. Maybe some formatting issues and things like that but it's not hard to look past them. Pick this book up and enjoy!
