Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma – book review

Never in my life did I think 1 I would read a book about incest or 2 that I would read a book about incest and end up in tears. If everyone participated in it – the human race would quickly devolve and be lost into genetic disorder. I did get my tears. Meet Tiffin A beautiful,spirited young boy who has to beg for every scrap of attention from his mother.

Or a heartbreaking examination of society failing its young people. Together they raise Kit, Tiffin and Willa, and do their best to keep their family together despite ongoing challenges and struggles.

You’d think then, that when these two teenagers kiss for the first time, it would be the beginning of a gorgeous first love affair, wouldn’t you? He single handed couldnt take care of his siblings, let alone maintain a stable school life.

Aged fourteen, Tabitha left school against her parents’ wishes. There’s just one problem-they’re brother and sister, hence the title of the book: I was very keen to read Forbidden. Or would they have grown up and fallen in love with people other than each other?


And I know if they had a normal environment, that would never happened to them. Lochan’s blushing at sexual hints is txbitha because of his character that has been built up around his timidity, but Maya is supposed to be outgoing and full of life to balance him out. We can always just try. I liked the book and story, apart from almost all of the characters being absolute douches most of the time, particularly the mother.

They don’t see each other as we all see our siblings, they are like a married couple, they share responsibilities they are not supposed to have taking into account they are so young but they simply have to.

Lochan and Maya’s situation was hard. There is very little dialogue in this novel, and the narrative alternates in chapters aszuma Lochan and Maya’s points of view. Well, I can no longer claim that fame. Rather, I take issue with the manner in which it was handled in the case of Forbidden.

A Review of “Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma”

They are siblings and it is against the law to have an affair. Even if you have to answer by inbox and spoil the hell bj of it, please, explain it to me! I guess I jinxed it. They loved each other so much and they just wanted to be together. This book is a perfect example that the YA genre is more than what people give it credit for. This book broke me, completely and utterly. As verbose I can be sometimes, it’s so difficult to find the words to write in favor of a book I truly love. I love books that make me think, and I love books that make me feel.

The ending is always harsh.

It’s all too easy for an author to resort to the tasteless exploitation of sticky sentiment or breathy fumblings that heighten the excitement of a taboo relationship.

It is such a hard reality to face up to, so unexpected that I had to reread the last few chapters to double check I had gotten it right. This is a review I’ve put off writing for over 3 years now.

This story is forbidden My son thought there was something really wrong with me. He is my soul mate,my fresh air,the reason I look forward to getting up every morning. Oct 12, xrysa rated it it was amazing Shelves: Open Preview See a Problem?

But in the end, it was all worth it, because Forbidden was such a thoughtprovoking, powerful and emotional story and despite all the anguish and heartbreak in it, it’s easily one of the best books I’ve ever read.

This book is that book. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. It does not stop there, it questions the readers, that, where do you draw the line, the line between the person you love? The older brothers Lochan and Maya, aged 18 and 16, are in charge of their three little brothers of 13, 8 and tabithq years and all the housework.
