Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Spoiled:
* "With deftly interwoven humor, hyperbole, and poignant, authentic moments, this is a wholly entertaining, thought-provoking offering."
Booklist (starred review)

"Fashion bloggers Cocks and Morgan... bring humor, heart, and formidable writing skills to this exuberant debut.... The fashion knowledge, eye for Hollywood ridiculousness, and wicked humor that the authors are known for is on full display [and] the wit and depth the authors bring to the project won't disappoint."—PW

"Spoiled is soapy, funny and full of the Fug Girls' trademark Hollywood snark. I want to read the sequel NOW."

Megan McCafferty, New York Times bestselling author of Bumped and the Jessica Darling series

"Spoiled really is such a FUN read!! I love it, it's dishy, it's girly, it's LA...everything I love."—Joe Zee, Creative Director, ELLE Magazine

"[An] Obsessively readable, smartly subversive take on lifestyles of the rich and narcissistic..."—Kirkus

I've been a huge fan of the gofugyourself site for about 4 years now- I love Heather and Jessica's fashion commentary. It's always sharp, witty, and just biting enough to not be too bitchy. They're great at it, and I bought Spoiled because of my adoration of their fug work.

Spoiled was not, however, as great as I had hoped it would be. The book has a stack of brilliant one-liners, and very amusing asides that poke fun at how silly/shallow some of the characters are, but writing like that is not enough to sustain a novel. The dialogue is not great, mainly because it is not believable, and I don't mean that in a 'suspension of disbelief' way. It is also delivered way too fast, without appropriate context. For example, when Laurel is telling Molly about who her father is (sorry, trying to avoid getting deleted for spoilers!), the dialogue is almost akin to a throw-away line. This leaves what is actually a big deal in Molly's life falling kind of flat for the reader. Plus, repeatedly throughout the book there is a dearth of really good scene-setting. It's not something that requires paragraphs of descriptions, just a clever snappy line or two can provide more than enough for the reader to envisage what is going on. It's almost like they were trying to get to the next funny comment/line too fast to enable the reader to actually engage with the characters.

Spoiled left me feeling a bit unsatisfied. Sure, I laughed, but a novel needs to do more than that. I can just read their website if I want a few laughs. A novel's purpose is the story it's trying to tell. A novel should deliver its story in a way that makes you feel like you were along for the ride, no matter how light-hearted the subject matter is.

I have been a big fan of the GFY site for a long time, and had high hopes for this novel. Sadly, I was disappointed. Falling into a trap that snares many bloggers and comedians turned novelist, the book has plenty of funny one liners but lacks the plot and character depth to sustain a full novel. The plot is completely predictable from start to finish, and none of the characters - main or supporting - grow in any way. Brick begins as a self-involved horrible father who seems to think good parenting involves doing things with your children on half-hearted whims, and ends the book in the same place. Molly begins as the perfect do-gooder with all the sympathy points, and does not change one bit. Brooke begins as a self-absorbed spoiled brat who has decided that her sister happens to be her enemy, and ends as a self-absorbed spoiled brat who has decided that her sister should be counted among her inner circle. There are also a plethora of unresolved plot lines. We never get any real closure on why certain characters hate one another, what happened with Brooke's mother, or what happens with the potential relationships and crushes that spring up throughout the book.

The lack of depth of plot or characters leaves the book feeling flat. It's hard to feel anything more than mild amusement at any of the characters, or to become attached to them or care about their stories. If a giant volcano had erupted in the middle of the book and killed off half the characters, it would have been hard to feel anything other than "meh.

I found "Spoiled" to be an incredibly fun, frothy, funny read and a perfect summer book. The authors strike a great balance between the humor all of the Hollywood and fashion jokes and the relationships between the characters. I liked all of the characters and was invested in what happened while I laughed out loud as they skewered the celebrity lifestyle with the same wit that is found in their writing on Go Fug Yourself. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an amusing and enjoyable read!

I have a confession to make. I used to read a lot of these kinds of books. Gossip Girl, It Girl, The A-List, The Clique, Poseur, Secrets of My Hollywood Life - you name it, I've read it. I was obsessed with superficial books about the rich and semi-famous when I was maybe 13 - that was basically all I read. I loved them then, but honestly? I wouldn't want to read them again today. But Spoiled is obviously pretty much the same thing, and I ended up having fun reading it, so I guess that 13-year-old is still in me somewhere...

No, Spoiled is not deep and meaningful. It's not the kind of book that will stick with you or make you think, and its one attempt at depth (the storyline of Molly losing her mother) is underdeveloped and definitely couldn't have made me get emotional. Nor is the plot original - it's basically the same thing as The A-List: Hollywood Royalty. (Yes, sadly, I am an expert on books about ridiculously bratty rich girls.) And the story has 'predictable' written all over it.

But, you know what? I didn't care. I didn't care because Spoiled is so. Much. Fun. The writing style and the way these authors present the whole Hollywood lifestyle is hilarious. The characters aren't likeable most of the time, but they're so much fun to read about. These people are crazy, in the best way possible. I love how the authors balanced presenting the story and lovingly ridiculing the characters.

And that's all I have to say about Spoiled. It's not great literature - but really, who would expect that from a book with that cover? - but it is snarky, humorous, and plain fun. It's not the best of rich girl drama books (like I said, expert here...), but it was fun - exactly what I needed.
