Intriguing story of inner and outer beauty

This is the second time I have read this novel. I love the descriptive imagery to help you picture the characters, not only their unique physical appearance but their personalities and demeanors as well. I also very much enjoy the back-and-forth between the past life of Oly's childhood in the Fabulon and present-day in the "real world".

Dunn does an extraordinary job of comparing the term "freak"--Chick is the seemingly normal child but treated as the outsider in the family of genetically gifted offspring. Al and Lil create deformities for the allure (enticing patrons to their carnival), while Mary Lick creates deformities for the opposite purpose of causing repulsion (removing women's sex appeal); yet they all seek the human condition of acceptance.

A more thoroughly disgusting book I have yet to read. We meet a man and woman who have encountered a shortage of employees for their traveling side show. They are parents of children whose in utero existence was purposefully tainted by viral, bacterial and toxic agents for the desired result of producing mutants/freaks to populate their circus. As an adult survivor of of physical abuse by my biological father, I had trouble sleeping after barely reading the first chapter. I tossed it into the rubbish!
