I enjoyed it from start to finish. The gal that reads the book has a wonderfully pleasant and creative voice. Excellent, fun book. Big folks everywhere will embrace this hero!
You have to finish this book or you'll miss life changing experiences. I read this book in 2 sittings which is a record for me. Usually a book sits for weeks before I finish it. A great read for anyone who has every been or known someone with a weight or image problem. Have fun!!
The story was ok even if a little hoaky - but just didn't go along with the title or what I felt the book would be about (yes, I was expecting something much more with a title like this). Not very plausible either - the whole story. Sorry.
Eclectic tastes in music and books, drawn to cheerful, beautiful, and gentle things
This book was very much not my cup of tea. It's a self-indulgent tale of a fat woman who dumps a guy and then spends the majority of the book tearfully (and pathetically) trying to get the guy back. I found myself just cringing with embarrassment for women everywhere as I listened. At least it has a happy ending.
I expected a light, cute, and perhaps slightly comedic story from the sample and the blurb, I was not disappointed. Good in Bed was all of those things at one point or another. What I had not expected were the passages of depth, heartbreak, and moments that could only be described as poignant.
Best of all, it lacked the "WWWAAAAAAAAHHHHHH! All this bad stuff happens to me because I'm fat" shtick.
Be warned, if you buy it for a long drive thinking light snarky beach trash.... you may find yourself parked outside of a hotel unwilling to turn it off and being stared down by the valet...I did.
They story was very depressing.
I was very disappointed.
For the first time ever, I was completely mislead by the reviews of this book. It seemed that most people liked this book. I found it very depressing and would not recommend it to anyone! The narration, however, was very good!
I was looking for a light chic-flick type book to read and this one just had a very dark undertone with the main character almost loosing her baby and depression, etc.
No. But I won't be reading anything else from this author.
No. THe voice was fine. No complaints.
None. I just wasn't looking for such a serious story.
The story was told beautifully, it just didn't live up to its hype for me.Don't get wrong the story was interesting but there seem to be gaps in the sequice of things.
The main character in this book had me at hello! I couldn't walk away from the audio recording. I laughed outloud in my car and got tears in my eyes throughout the book. I would highly recommend it.
This is one of my all-time favorite chick lit books. I'm an English major, so I typically read heavier stuff. But, when I want something light, fun, and touching, I always come back to this one! Love it!
