    One thought on “Beyond Ugly”

    1. Some said that mirror is never wrong, never lied, that it shows whatever it is reflected to. But for Constance, the mirror confirms what her mother and Eastman, her vicious step father, had said throughout her childhood. That she's ugly, ugly, ugly, utterly ugly!It takes more than bravely to deal the life that she has. To work various part-time jobs to earn money, not just for the surgeries but also for the law school because her mother wouldn't sign the grant for her university. She works hard [...]

    2. Actually - 2 and one half stars.I liked this but not wholly so. The writing was very clear, straightforward and simple, just as one would expect a good lawyer would write.The story was interesting and, I suppose if I had read Ugly, I might not be left with so many questions; or perhaps, I still would. It seems that Constance Briscoe reveals quite a lot, but actually, she reveals very little. And there's no cohesion to the story (I guess there's no cohesion in life). Particularly aggravating was [...]

    3. Review:(I have not read her book: UGLY, oh please would someone lend me?)Constance Briscoe's life, after reading it, opened my eyes to the world of law, trials, courts, magistrates, and anything else about her job in Tooks Court. I liked how she managed to stand up after being physically and emotionally abused by her mother. As a young girl, living in a little country, with no experience outside the box (yet), and challenged nothing yet, Constance is really strong. She became strong throughout h [...]

    4. I read this immediately after reading "Ugly". I was not impressed by the plastic surgery but I also sympathised with Constance. Sometimes we may tend to think that we have lead loveless childhoods in whatever ways and through whatever experiences, but her story has opened by eyes and made me overwhelmingly grateful. I like that she stayed focused and accomplished her dream despite the obstacles in her way. We really have no excuse and it goes to show that where and how you start is not essential [...]

    5. The follow up to the book Ugly, it was wonderful to see how Constance managed to achieve academic success and professional fulfilment without any support from anyone. Certainly not an ugly person.

    6. The writing was very simple, so I read this very quickly. However, it was an interesting read, and an insight into a world I have no experience of, so very enjoyable fire and forget book

    7. So not quite what i was expecting. though it wasnt at all boring, i had just hoped it would be on a women learning to cope with the aftereffects of server childhood trauma and learning to accept one's self. Sadly that was not the case, in fact Contance seem to get over it remarkably well as soon as she started lawyer school which i think is very unrealistic. though i did see some lasting side effects - she put to much importance on someone's appearance (most of the time that was the first thing [...]

    8. This book was good in the fact that we got to see what she achieved after her ordeeal as a child. However found it rather odd how her "character" changed from this girl who talked herself down and wanted all her face sorting with plastic surgery, very quickly to a woman who spoke up in court and was very confident. I also found that the end if the book was very abrupt. Roughly 4 pages before the end, she finds out shes pregnante end. In the 5 paragraph epilogue it says very briefly about her chi [...]

    9. I didn't really get this book. It was on the best sellers list and has done really well. I felt the "voice" was really simple, she left out a lot of detail, she didn't go into things I was interested in, she frustrated me with her actions to some degree, but mostly I found she came across as a really unemotional simple person I just didn't connect with. It wasn't really about her life growing up or how she felt ugly she concentrated more on her struggle to become a lawyer and so many things were [...]

    10. This is the sequel to Ugly about a girl who is so abused by her mom who always tells her how ugly she is.This book is about Constance trying to become a lawyer.Maybe because of the translation but sometimes I thought her very weird but can you blame her. It seems she still takes abuse from other people. Her doctor her co workers. To me the writing and the story was all a bit weird,parts you would think would be very important were skipped and unimportant stuff was talked about a lot. I did disco [...]

    11. I read this in a few days, I just could not put it down.More inspiration and insight from an amazingly strong and driven woman.It can be a cruel world but Constance shows that it pay to persevere in whichever way you can, you must stand up for yourself and fight for what you want.I have heard that a third book for this series is either being written or is with the publishers, I sure hope so as I would love to read it.

    12. this is a very sad bookyone in there teens should read this book. they would find in intersting if you like true storys.if you havent read number 1 dont bother reading number 2 because it goes in order.you might even cry when you read this book.overall i give it 9/10 because it is missing something.

    13. Inspiring!!! I'd love to meet Constance after everything she has been thru in her life all I can say is FAIR PLAY she came thru fighting all the way. She made good of a crap start in her life and got to where she wanted to be without moaning or sitting on her ass feeling sorry for herself. Truly encouraging book that just proves anything is possible if you fight for it and give it all you have.

    14. Its a great book and part 2 of Ugly by Constance Briscoe. its a true story about a woman who was abused as a child and now living life as an adult who is at law school and coping with the scars of abuse.

    15. Definitely not a patch on the first book, but still a great read. It's slow in parts but it's easy to be attached to it as you've read the journey from the first book to here.It follows her as she grows up and really matures into a woman.

    16. Another disappointment for me. I was more interested in hearing about her law experience and her ability to put into perspective her harsh upbringing. I was less interested in hearing the details of her plastic surgery and difficulty getting along with fellow junior barristers.

    17. I've only read nearly half the book, and I think it's BRILLIANT! She has cosmetic surgery just because her mother and stepdad said she was ugly. What I have learned so far is, you shouldn't listen to people about what they think of you, you just need to geto on with life.

    18. I don't usually quit on reading a book but I couldn't read this book any further. It was interesting in the beginning when it was about her experience in college and how she managed to get along, but it started to get boring with the unneccessary details and stories in courts!

    19. A woman recounts her battle to become a barrister and overcome her dislike of her looks.The account of the woman's life was interesting in places, but overall I found the narrative disjointed and the subject cold / hard.

    20. Really good, inspiring, easy read and to follow the story of the life of a girl who have incredible willpower. Diary/biography-like book.

    21. boek ok, makkelijk te lezen en vertellijn makkelijk volgbaar. Zocht echter naar specifiekere elementen maar vond deze niet terug. Beetje langdradig soms

    22. I enjoyed this, and read it really quickly, but I don't know if it was as good as Ugly. Although I'm glad I read it - it was nice to see where Constance went next!

    23. Continuation from Ugly however i did not enjoy this one as much. It seemed to just end all of a sudden with a blank. Hummm

    24. Story of my lifeI read ugly when I was in a similar circumstance and it gave me the inspiration to leave and now that I'm older reading this is a small comfort
