Summary

Mary Brown is funny, gorgeous, and bonkers. She's also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can't cross her legs, has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker, and discovers even her hands and feet look fat, it's time to take action. 

But what action? She's tried every diet under the sun. This is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins "Fat Club", where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye. 

This audiobook is the first three titles in the series all together. The story is laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise program, or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way-too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and in which she is now completely stuck.

Poor narrator

Managed to get almost to the end. Story weak. Not exciting enough. Narrator spoke with an irritating sing song voice

enjoyed this but the narrator could have been better, the emphasis was always in the wrong place and in some places it ruined the delivery

A light listen

It wasn’t to heavy to listen to. I could relate to a lot of the issues in it both funny and not so funny. However I just don’t know how she could eat all these chips in one sitting!

The main downside was that voice! The irritating way she always said OK. The narrator kind of drew it out and for some reason it grated on me lol

ok

yes it was funny in places and anyone on a diet could relate but found it mediocre. did not have to pay attention to the story. was glad the 3 bookd came together as one book would not be worth a credit.
