A nice easy read made me smile but was 100% predictable.

I was fat and unhappy... Yada, yada, yada... Lost weight... Became a bitch... Yada, yada, yada.... Got my act together... Etc. it is a fast read and good writing, but a little unrealistic, or at least missing some detail on the timeline. I would read another book by the author though.
Fat Chick reads like an advertisement, which is our main heroines career. She struggles with "the" weight issue, and I'm going to say a bit of inner self-esteem issues too. The story is quite predictable, primarily because the introductions are so rich. I won't elaborate on more, to keep away from spoilers, however will say readers looking for a light read on a lazy breezy day will enjoy the novel.

Dreadful. Unfunny, charmless and tedious. I only kept reading because of the novelty of the fact it mentions Weight Watchers points throughout, and I'm a long-term WW member. Doesn't save this book from bargain-bin status, however.
Nothing life altering, but entertaining. I'm starting to notice a pattern with big chick lit, and it's becoming predictable. I like to read anyway though b/c it reminds me that I need to hit the gym!

Watch Bethanne Patrick interview Lorraine Duffy Merkl about her book FAT CHICK on The Book Studio.
Horrible, I believed the reviews and this book didn't give me anything I was looking for. I thought it would inspire, all it did was prove the point about shallow people.
Quick enjoyable chick lit. You won't find any new ideas or an ever changing plot, but still entertaining.
Kept me entertained during a plane ride, but utterly predictable.
