I do not normally read "Chick Lit." but I figured that I would give this a try. Although many people enjoyed the book, I have to admit that I cannot argee with those who do. Maybe this is just not my genre. Of course it is always good to try new things. Being a "fat girl" myself, I was able to sympathize with the main character's situation. Halfway through the book, though, I was becoming annoyed with her doormat personality and just her in general. Aside from my dislike of the characterization, the story wasn't as well written as it could possibly have been. I understand that this is Palmer's debut, which is further than most of us will ever get. Hopefully she will hone her skills for her next novel.
This was a good book about a woman trying to hold onto her no longer fat childhood friend. It follows her prepartions for the wedding as a maid of honor in her newly ungrateful and shallow friends wedding but also major life changes for the main character as she stops living in the past frame of mind as a fat girl and discovers the woman that she has always been and all that she is capable of regardless of the scale. A good summer chick lit read!
Possibly the funniest book I've ever read! You don't have to be a fat girl to relate to and totally enjoy this book. Highly recommended!!!
Fun, "chicklit" read, but not your typical style. For one thing, it's hilarious. Second, it's not as predictable as others in this genre--there were big surprises. That's all I can say without giving anything away.
Hilarious. Honest. Great, quick, absorbing read. Didn't want to put it down! Very Jennifer Weiner-esque.
