WOW! Fugly by K.Z. Snow is AMAZING and took me by complete surprise! It’s hard to believe the book falls just under sixty pages, because it really packs an emotional punch. I thought the plot was creative and very thought provoking. It’s a story that stayed with me hours after I finished it.

The story is a combination first and third person. At the beginning of the story it’s told by David’s point of view, and then it changes to third person so we can follow the lives and strange happenings of D

I was clueless to how much I would adore this book. Holy f*cking sh*t! I loved this book and the message it gave. I think everyone should be able to identify with some of the characters and how it feels when we are made to feel insignificant sometimes. Loved it, loved it!

David Ocho is a journalist who’s a member of a circle of four friends. Todd, Fallon, and Jake refer to themselves as “The Hunt Club”. They are a hot-looking threesome who go clubbing together, and David is more-or-less their sidekick. Each of them is professionally successful in his own right. Todd’s a mortician, Jake’s a publicist, and Fallon is a movement coach. As is often the case with attractive, young gay men, they are very focused upon the superficial matters of life. They’re proud of the ...more

I have to admit I’ve been looking forward to reading this book for ages, ever since KZ put up the cover and extract on her blog. It sounded just a great idea for a book and I couldn’t wait to see how it was all going to turn out. I wasn’t disappointed.

The book begins with 1st person narrator, David, meeting with his three friends at a club. Fallon, Jake and Todd are handsome men who are used to picking up, and competing for, the most gorgeous man in the room. When a beautiful man enters (named b
OMG! Fugly was awesome! I didn't think I would like the different narratives, but I did. I swear I KNOW people who are exactly as superficial as the gang. Loved watching them change from total assholes, to decent and worthy men.

I liked this novella a lot but felt it was far too short to successfully tackle three budding and complicated romances. Just when things were getting good the book came to an end. I'd read this again if it were ever expanded 100 pages or so.

I wrote up a review for JERR which you can find HERE . You may have to click the "enter here" button and hit my link again. Sorry, a pain the butt I know, but I can't repost it here.

A good old-fashioned romantic fable that is shorter than I might wish, but perfectly written for all that. Structure, pace, and pathos aplenty.

You can almost see Snow's flashing, floating pleasure in the high-concept germ of this story: a curse that opens up three shallow bar-hounds to the possibility of real, human connection. And SNow is unwilling to just crank out a formulaic M/M. Along the way, she gives us little snippets of tantalizing character detail, peeks into odd jobs and odder peopl

Why I bought it: Author + cover + blurb = Sold!

Dislike/like (ending on a high note):

Dislike~ I've said a number of times I'm not the greatest fan of first person POV so when I started reading Fugly my initial response was 'bugger'. Happily, for me at least, this POV was limited to the prologue and epilogue. Even better, despite my gut reaction I was glad for David's (the first personee's) insight into friends' behaviour as well as the opportunity to revisit, albeit briefly, two of my favourite K

The writing was good

IMO it felt like we got 3 unfinished stories instead of 1 complete story. Also I never warmed up to Jake and probably could have enjoyed it more without so much Jake. I didn't really like any of the guys but Jake was least favorite. If more time had been spent with the other guys I probably could have started to like them more
