Number 2 out of 3
The fact that the girls started out being superficial, and ended up being heroes.
She is a very talented voice performer.
It made me laugh.
My daughter recommended this book to me-- I suspect it was partly to get me off her back about her appearance.
No. I never listen to books twice.

Each time their brand names were used.
Wow, I read this awhile ago and just remember it was enjoyable to listen to and done with a lot of wit.
Funny, Ironic, Cynical
Miss Texas, loved her.
No, first one, but I will read more.
Wanted to savor it.
My favorite genres are absurdist humor, Sci-fi & modern fantasy, but, as you can see, I'll read just about anything. Don't mind the typos.
It was okay. The characters were just a little too one dimension. The tuff girl was over the top gangsta. The contestants was all amazingly air headed. The pageant producer was channeling Sara Palin in that way we are all tired of. I'd skip it if I were you.

I thought this book would resort to cannibalism or taking out the competition but boy, was I wrong. The satirical nature and the tone of the book help build up an intricate world (not so different from our own) where the Corporation appears to be in charge of everything, including beauty pageants. What starts out as a dark comedy almost dissolves into a satire that deals with real world issues that are still relevant today. It does seem a bit preachy at times but does bring up a lot of great points.
The audiobook was really fun to listen to. Libba Bray does a great job at the different voices and I really liked the effects that were used as well. However, my one complaint is whenever Sosie spoke I had to lower the volume. I know it's intentional for the character but when I wasn't expecting it it was a little startling.
One thing that I wasn't fond of in the book was when the pirates came into the story. They just felt unnecessary in the long run because they didn't really enhance the story. It just felt too out of place, though I did enjoy the climax of the story. And the girls were awesome.
I loved how this book was narrated! The author does an amazing job and it really brings it to life.
This story has no one main character. It follows many without being confusing.
Mrs. Bray narrates this book with style. She brings it to life with voices and special effects.
I love how this book is so crazy! It was a wild ride and I laughed the whole way.
This is a credit well spent! Highly recommended
I pick d this book up at the library not knowing what to expect. One chapter in, I knew I had to get it on audio, because I had a road trip with my 16 year old son coming up. He and I laughed non-stop. In addition, it has some great lessons about allowing girls to be individuals. Flaws and all. The author's narration was spot on. Her characters came to life. I loved everything about this book.
