Not cute. to say you like to be fat? Its appropriate to like your body - - if you take care of it, don't intentionally pack it on? And what a hypocrite to think that you wrote this book about packing on, and being okay with it, and THEN... to go "big" in the entertainment industry saying how you need to quit that lifestyle and take care of yourself, and clean up your diet, and care for the vessel that carries around your talent.
Geez. It wasn't all bad in narration, but the message was terrible.
I liked Monique's spin on the subject. Laughed out loud a bunch of times. Did find some of it repetitive. But overall, enjoyed it and like that Monique herself read it.
I did not enjoy this book. I went in expecting a comedy routine and didn't laugh once. I couldn't relate to the jokes and gave up after the first disc.
She really made sense to me. I am overeight but losing and she was very to the point. I stopped listening part way through since she was starting to ruin my dieting plans. There was a lot of foul language so thats why I rated it down.
Overall, enjoyed the book. However, I was expecting it to be funnier and make more jokes about skinny women. The book was mixed with humor and real life issues.
Both my wife and I listened and we finally removed the cd on disk 2 - very disappointed.
Very Funny! Kept me laughing. Keep in mind, this is a comedy routine NOT a novel. I did not realize that going in but it was still great. A true tribute to big girls everywhere. If you are skinny, you probably won't get it.
