Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 )

"Followers of the authors' take-no-prisoners, celebrity-fashion blog will expect the satire. What surprises are moments of emotional depth-Brooke and Molly especially are rounded individuals-in this obsessively readable, smartly subversive take on lifestyles of the rich and narcissistic and their many enablers, from top stars to trashy-tabloid bottom feeders." (Kirkus )

"Fashion bloggers Cocks and Morgan, best known for their Web site Go Fug Yourself, 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." (Publishers Weekly )

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 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 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.

Sometimes I love a cute, fun story that is sure to lighten up the mood. Spoiled was just that. It's written by the writers from celebrity blog GoFugYourself.com, so I had high hopes for it. You had a bit of everything you'd expect from a book centered in the world of fame and fortune, from designer clothes to mean girls. Translation it's a bit cliche of other books and movies centered, but it's such a great read it's totally worth it.

When Molly's mother dies her last wish is that Molly reconnect with the father she never knew. Molly is a strong character, despite what she's gone through. Brick Berlin is pretty much the hottest well-known actor in Hollywood, so you get tons of name dropping from Quentin Tarantino to Megan Fox. Brick is the typical workaholic father with little to no time for his kids, but you can tell he's sincere in the little bit that he does say. Then we have Brooke, the sister with even more issues than Molly. I won't get into what the synopsis means by "nothing is ever what it seems" since I don't want to spoil the book, but let's just say you pretty much get your typical mean girl scenario involving many different characters. That's not to say every character in this book is only looking out for themselves, Molly easily makes a couple of amazing friends in Beverly Hills that I adore. The characters are all well-written to the point they feel realistic. The writing itself is sarcastic at times, which I love. It's also very smart and witty. It's not your typical Hollywood read, by any means.

While the storyline is a bit predictable, there are some interesting side stories that I pray a sequel continues, such as the story about Brooke's mom. It's definitely a book I'll pick up if a sequel is written. The ending is a bit too open-ended for my tastes, almost as if they ran out of pages to fit the story into, but it was a hopeful ending.

I received my review copy of Spoiled from Little Brown in exchange for my honest review.
