Book Review - More Beauty Less Beast

With her own offbeat brand of wit and near-wisdom, inspirational humorist Debora Coty addresses heart needs of women struggling to tame that out-of-control inner beast that unexpectedly pounces, roaring and shredding, as it threatens to destroy the divinely beautiful princess hidden within. In More Beauty, Less Beast, women will find simple, practical techniques for embracing the true beauty rightfully theirs as cherished daughters of the King. Whether jaded by emotional wounds, unrealistic standards, or lack of confidence, this laugh-out-loud, girlfriend-to-girlfriend encouragement will help women transform their destructive inner beast into the exquisite beauty they were always meant to be. 
Debora Coty is an occupational therapist, a piano teacher, and a freelance writer. She's also involved in the children's ministry at her church and is an avid tennis player. Debora began writing to fill the void when her last child left for college, and it has since become a passion. Debora has a real knack for getting across sound biblical concepts with a refreshing lightheartedness as attested in her monthly newspaper column entitled "Grace Notes: God's Grace for Everyday Living."

This book caught my attention when it came up for review because it talked about making our inner beauty more beautiful and becoming more like the Lord wants us to be.  I would love to say that I loved this book, but alas, I cannot.  I know the book was supposed to be humorous, but I found myself hard-pressed to understand her humor or get even a chuckle out of any of the stories.  I was also put off by her use of "Papa God" every time she talked about the Lord.  A little of that goes a long way.  I also didn't care what kind of underwear she wears or anything else of that personal nature.  For a book that was supposed to bring us into more beauty internally, the author talked an awful lot about the external beauty.  There were a few Scriptures thrown into each chapter, but there was no real in-depth study of God's Word, in my opinion. Maybe someone else would love this book, but I'm afraid I didn't.  I had a hard time getting through it to finish it for my review.  I just never connected with the author or her words.   I give this book two stars out of five.
