Marianne completed her PhD in 2023 at York St John University, which focused on understanding why perfectionism contributes to mental health problems (namely, depressive symptoms and suicide ideation).

That way I would have cared more about what happened to her as she was struggling during the first part of the book. And of course, she only develops emotion through romance, which is possibly the least creative choice ever.

I feel like so many are just carbon copies of each other lately, but this one definitely had its own flair. Perfection is a dystopian, with some science fiction intermingled, in an alternate history where Hitler won World War II. I enjoyed this book 100% there were so many references in the story that I connected to which made the reading experience great. The book is important in helping readers to recognise that perfectionism is not, in fact, something to be desired, celebrated or endorsed.

Known to the locals as Bent Bridge, it has been damaged, though not destroyed, by a mass of drifting timber that struck its central supports during a flood.She then hacked into her ‘father’s’ computer, where she discovered the truth of his plans for the future. It is set after WWII which suggests that it isn’t futuristic in the literal sense but rather time where it shows a different aspect of life where a word would have functioned very differently if Hitler had been given free rain to create “the perfect race”.

What has it made you think about what perfection means and how the idea of perfection influences our attitudes and choices?She is considered human but what people who meet her don’t know is that she has the ability to read anyones mind, and she also shows no emotion. I'd never written a children's picture book before, but Brooke's expert guidance helped me nail my plot and characters. However, it has gone beyond just the physical, some of these perfect people had supernatural powers as well, and the genetic breeding is set to get even more out of control.

I really liked how things ended and how it was left open, without a cliff hanger, for future installments to a series. The Temple of Perfection charts the gym’s long history, exploring its enduring appeal and growing popularity in a world increasingly obsessed with physical perfection, and attracted by the quick fixes of plastic surgery and miracle diet pills. This story reminds me a lot of Brave New World in the beginning and then when Ellyssa finds the Renegade group it reminds me of The Host. Your narration permits us to observe events from three different points of view: Harley’s, Douglas’s, and Felicity’s. But with her Father hunting her and wanting his perfect creation back can she keep her new found family safe?The master race” creation is an ongoing memory for certain generations but this adaption is a good interpretation of the true intentions of a cruel leader in a time of war. Since you are concerned about racism and ethnic difference in this novel, why not show us what Freddy is thinking? When a renegade is brought in to The Center he is able to "speak" to Ellyssa through telepathy, which is her particular special ability. He shows what we can do as individuals to resist the modern-day pressure to be perfect, and in so doing, win for ourselves a more purposeful and contented life. Hirch’s showed what was going on back at the Center, but Angela the Gestapo’s wasn’t necessary at all.
