4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, July 19 2004
This review is from: Waking Beauty: A Novel (Paperback)
This is the story about an overweight, exceptionally homely woman who wakes up one morning with the body and face of a supermodel.
The story doesn't try to explain how this happened, and for me this wasn't a problem. Once you accept the premise, I felt the author did have some interesting things to say about Beauty, and how powerful a force it is in our culture.
I give this book 4 stars because I thought it was a quick, fun, entertaining read. It's not simply a Revenge book, although it's that. It's also a mirror on how our society works.
