Editorial Reviews

Review

"I spent the entire book alternately nodding my head in agreement, occasionally shaking it in shared shame, and covering my mouth to keep something between a chuckle and a belly laugh from coming out while riding in a car with coworkers. There are so many little truths that apply to everyone, not just Fat Girls and before even finishing the book, my Skinny Girl friends were already looking to get their own."

"It's like Gregg Alison Suchow got in my head and wrote all my thoughts."

"Hilarious! Quick read, so there is no reason not to give this a whirl."

From the Author

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing my book, THE F WORD: Tales of a Fat Girl. I am indeed a Fat Girl who has thoughts, ideas and perhaps the same perspective as living inside a larger body as you! This book is supposed to make you chuckle as well as giving you a little food for thought, chocolate cake perhaps?

Don't over think it, just enjoy it! :)

This quick read is so funny and insightful. The author is honest about herself without making anyone feel bad about themselves. And you don't have to be a FG (Fat Girl) to relate to a lot of it. It is a book for all women. While reading it on the train to work I found myself laughing out loud and reading bits and pieces to friends. This is a great book to read on vacation or on your commute to work but it will make you feel good where ever you are.

This book is quite humourous and I found it to be an endearing and brutally honest look at friendships, love and relationships through the eyes of someone who believes they're 'fat' and all the conotations that come with being 'fat'. For anyone who has ever been overweight, believed themselves to be so, or has a friend who on the larger side of life, this is a good read. The author also comes across as being assertive and confident which is not a typical 'fat' person stereotype and has the ability to successfully poke fun at herself without it sounding like a sob story 'feel sorry for me' type book. Whilst I could relate to some parts myself, it was also good to get someone else's insight into their own 'fat' world. An enjoyable read.

I spent the entire book alternately nodding my head in agreement, occasionally shaking it in shared shame, and covering my mouth to keep something between a chuckle and a belly laugh from coming out while riding in a car with coworkers. There are so many little truths that apply to everyone, not just Fat Girls and before even finishing the book, my Skinny Girl friends were already looking to get their own.

Gregg's sense of humor is dry, self-deprecating in places, and honest to a fault. The things she wrote are so often things I think to myself or say to friends, which is maybe why this book appealed to me so much. I enjoyed her topics and was happy to see that she didn't shy away from some topics. I also appreciated more than I can explain that the book wasn't just some round-about way of saying "poor fat me", which is so common with fat girl books.

The formatting for the book is a little odd... as if there were page breaks inserted at specific places in the original format of the book. On the third page of each chapter (of which there are 43, at about a 5 minute read per chapter), there's a page break, typically at about the middle of the page. There were a few typos but not enough to make the book difficult to read.

In the end, I loved it. I found myself reflected in so many of the pages. The book is an affirmation that it's okay to be just a simple Fat Girl (as long as you're still really good in bed).

You can find her blog here if you'd like to try her humor on for size before buying the book (but you should still buy the book!): [...].

For any woman of any size that has been made to feel unpretty or unworthy this is a real uplifting and quick read. It is part of a series that I intend to read in its entirety. Having said that, if the author of this charming book ever reads my humble review, get your editor an upgraded version of spell check- anal spelling nazi that I am I noticed several glaring mis-spellings whilst giggling my head off. Extra points for the cute as hell cover art.

I did laugh out loud a few times
Easy read and fun but only if you can laugh at yourself. Don't take yourself or your imperfections so seriously and this helps the modern FG to do exactly that. Life is too short not to laugh at ourselves for everything we are and everything we are not.....

yes I did enjoy it. but for some unknown reason it kind of made me a bit sad as well. Can't even explain that to you but I suppose it's the whole self depreciation thing. I did still enjoy it though, can't take that away from it and I think that sad me may just be the entrenched insecurities that some/most women have about them selves

It's like Gregg Alison Suchow got in my head and wrote all my thoughts. Although she has the added wisdom of 15 years.

Good book and pretty funny- also an easy read. Would have liked a little more context or examples of situations.
