Not Tonight Honey, Wait 'Til I'm a Size Six
Not Tonight Honey Wait 'Til I'm a Size Six Author:Susan Reinhardt "Not Tonight, Honey Wait Til I'm a Size 6" is the book people are talking about. Syndicated Gannett News Services columnist Susan Reinhardt takes every topic on men's and women's minds and blows them wide open with a never-before-seen candor. The humor is explosive. Topics range from bodies that have gone to pot, to grandmothers taking up smokin... more »g at age 80 and hiding lit cigarettes in bras and aprons. Once, the author had to "marry" her best friend when the minister (also the bride's yard man) blew a gasket in his colostomy bag. Reinhardt's stories are often compared to that of a female David Sedaris or a married and middle-aged Bridget Jones. She is Erma Bombeck if Erma had Chef Emeril kicking it up a notch! People say they've never read funnier, but the poignant stories she tells pull a few tears.« less
This book was hilarious. Hilarious tales of Reinhardt's life. Learn about her kids, her husband....Tidy Stu, and her friends. Fabulous book to read. You will get lots of stares when you're laughing out loud.
Not very good. This a definite chick-lit (obviously), but it was really boring. The only funny chapter was the first and second one. I might try another one of her books, but this one was mainly a biography of the author. I struggled to finish this book.
I admit, I was expecting a 'story,' not a grouping of funny, quirky memories. The book is comprised of quick chapters each one discussing a different story of her family/life. Yes, it was funny.. but not what I was expecting.
(The book flap does say "...collection of ....stories and essays" --so I should have been forewarned, I suppose!)
