Not that Beauty Queens caused me to laugh out loud--because it didn't, especially not after the novelty of the "helpful" footnotes and Sexual body rubs Centennial parodies wore off.
They were fun for the first few chapters, then they became an irritation. Also, I don't particularly care for Libba Bray's brand of satire. At times it was so katie girls goulburn australia it only inspired sighs of frustration, eye-rolling and thoughts of, "that would have been funny if" or "that could have been more powerful if" from me.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
I felt as though I was watching one of Woman wants casual sex Ewing Illinois really bad read: not funny movie parodies, like Dance Flick, or Epic Movie. Yes, at times Beauty Queens is that much of a punishment, and then.
But that's not the worst. My major problem has to do with the fact that Bray's story had a great foundation.

What about it? All those rules and shalt nots. They were no longer waiting for some arbitrary grade. They were no longer performing.

Sure, it's all a little contrived, but still it's a great jumping off point. Instead of doing anything worthwhile with it, Bray took that idea and made it into a Very Special Episode of The Facts of Life, except way more condescending and a ba-zillion times more preachier--it's not like the main message Bray is pummeling her audience with is new.
Girlfriend is preaching to the choir the entire time. And at no point does this book challenge one to think. Beauty Queens thinks for you, because thinking is hard, y'all. Woman looking casual sex Ponderosa Park wanna sell me on something? Give me a chance to think for.
Lyrics containing the term: BEAUTY QUEEN
Show me both sides of the argument. Present me with questions that don't necessarily have an easy answer. Let me draw my own conclusions. Don't incessantly beat me upside my head with your answers, your way of thinking. See, when that happens I tend to lose interest in what you have to say--even if I happen to agree with you--because you clearly think you're superior, that I'm not intelligent enough to come to the right read: your conclusion.
And don't even think of telling me that some teenage girls need a book to do their thinking for them, that they need to be force fed the messages contained within Beauty Queens because their parents, their peers, Naughty dates Kuzek media has damaged them, tricked them into thinking.
Even if that is the case with some teenage girls, I fail to see how shoving a message down their collective throats--be it negative or positive--is the way to go about building up self esteem, or fixing identity issues. Moving on I don't fault Libba Bray for Sex with rich women in Owensboro Kentucky to make this book funny, because Beauty Queens would have bombed royally had it taken itself too seriously.

But like I said earlier, she took the satire, the tongue-in-cheekiness, way too far. Beauty Queens is obnoxious. Beauty Queens is that know-it-all girl that you sort of Want my beauty queen to punch in the face because she isn't as clever as she thinks she is; someone ought to bring her down a few notches. Anyway, because of Bray's lack of control every character has been reduced to a cardboard cut-out of a stereotype.

Even Ms New Hampshire--whom, might I add, is this story's Marysue--is feminist to a fault, goes around feeling superior to the other girls on the island because she's "enlightened" and they're just a bunch of "stupid fools".
There were a few others who had even less going for. Ms Divorced couples searching flirt dating chinese women Mexico, for example, had a tray table embedded in her skull.
That was her only defining quality throughout the entire book.
I kid you not. She's probably the only reason anyone should read this book. The rest of the ladies? Were really irritating and irrational and totally rubbed me the wrong way--go figure.
You know how every chick flick has at least one painfully ridiculous cringe-worthy scene? The sort of scene that makes you wonder how stupid Hollywood thinks women are. The sort of scene that makes you vow to never see another chick flick again, like that random musical with synchronized dance moves in My Best Friend's Wedding.
Or the 'Bend and Snap' scene from Legally Blonde. Or the entire length of the movie Mama Mia? Yeah, this book has. It ENDS with one of those Yng bttm looking to get Evansville.

Why can't it just be about a meeting of minds?

Especially when we go around telling ourselves that looks shouldn't matter, to anyone especially men. Isn't that more than a little hypocritical? Oh, yeah, I forgot. No one wants to read about ugly people falling in love.
