The BookViral Review:

Chock-a-block full of inventive and mind-bending ideas, ‘Divine Imperfection is original dystopian writing at its best, offering an eclectic mix of romance, scientific theory and futuristic horror.

Pulling her readers into a sugar-coated experimental world with beautiful sunsets on tap, food impossibly bursting with colour, and cute ducklings who never grow up, Amanda Clarke’s perfect introduction lulls us into a saccharine sense of security.

Add the devastatingly handsome Dan-a new philosophy tutor-into the mix and everything seems to be going swimmingly in this protected and hidden environment, where scientist Mary works tirelessly to develop the potential of life on Mars, and to battle with the problems of an increasingly unstable earth.

However, with her conceptually intricate plot, Clarke takes the mind into darker extremes, the battle between science and religion, the fragility of the human mind against control, and the power, intensity, and fanaticism of faith. Pushing all the right buttons of the human psyche, she exposes the core of the human experience, as this perfect world degenerates, heading towards the depths of depravity in a horrific downward trend.

Clarke takes each of her fully-fledged main players to the edge of madness and sometimes beyond, as they struggle with desire and their own morality, walking a tightrope between obedience and their own ethical beliefs, as she skilfully manipulates them in a macabre game of love, lust and power. However, protagonist Dan stands head and shoulders above the rest, with the initial gratification of his charming persona turning to a sickening realisation of what he is, and what he is capable of.

As Clarke casts yet another disturbing element into the mix, the reader is both transfixed and repulsed by the evolution of evil, and the ease at which humans are willing to discard decency at another’s command, leaving them with distinct unease as they retrospectively consider their own moral compass.

Stomach churning at times, but brilliantly constructed in both writing flair and narrative, ‘Divine Imperfection’ is a rollercoaster that will hit all the right buttons, from AI fantasy to dystopian horror and is a firmly recommended 5-star read!
