Beauty Queens

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray I alternated between listening to the audio version read by author Libba Bray - excellent and hysterical - to reading the book, which I didn't enjoy nearly as much. Bray's accents kept the action moving and made the characters feel more real. However, the book is such a heavy satire, that parts of it were so over the top as to make me cringe. I would have liked this a lot better if it would have taken itself just a bit more seriously.
