  • Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest To Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, Or Why Pie is Not The Answer

    To whom the fat rolls...I'm tired of books where a self-loathing heroine is teased to the point where she starves herself skinny in hopes of a fabulous new life. And I hate the message that women can't possibly be happy until we all fit into our skinny jeans. I don't find these stories uplifting; they make me want to hug these women and take them out for fizzy champagne drinks and cheesecake and explain to them that until they figure out their insides, their outsides don't matter.

    I really hung in there with Jen Lancaster. I have great empathy for anyone struggling with this issue, but halfway through, four hours of listening later, I felt like screaming, would you get to the point?! and by the way, your endless conversations with Fletch about nothing are not that amusing. Was it Lancaster or was it the narrator that made this feel like Chinese water torture?

    Middlemarch is considered one of the masterpieces of English fiction. Published in 1874, it is the seventh and penultimate novel by George Eliot. It pursues a number of underlying themes, including the status of women, the nature of marriage, idealism and self-interest, religion and hypocrisy, political reform, and education.

    I loved this narrator. I adored the book. The production values aren't the greatest, but I thought the reading was rich and nuanced. I would listen to Gabriel Woolf anytime.
