Here are some of the reviews from Amazon:
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Summer Reading!- I just finished the book over Spring Break and am now recommending it to everyone I meet for a number of reasons: 1) It is so well written that I frequently would re-read a passage just for the beautiful imagery. 2) The affecting content made me laugh, cringe, cry and generally feel for all of the characters. 3) Each chapter is a self contained short story, so if you are looking for a book you can read a chapter of before bed, by the pool, or while waiting for your kid to get out of yet another lesson, the book is a perfect choice. The only bad parts: 1) It isn't available on Kindle 2) It ends - I want more! I'm sure we will be seeing it on the big screen someday!! Nicely done!
5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Entertaining!!- The Happy Hypochondriac is a wonderful book! It was so well written with such a clear voice. Whether you are looking for a good laugh, a good cry or simple assurance that you're not the only one...this is the perfect read! I do not consider myself a hypochondriac. However, we've all had those moments where our imagination can run wild, making this a relatable story for everyone. I highly recommend it!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and moving tome- I enjoyed this book immensely. I had a public transportation "moment" where I was laughing hysterically and could not contain myself on a packed train which made me laugh all the harder. Well written, funny and heart wrenching all at the same time!
5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting!- This saga of a young hypochondriac has some hilarious and also very poignant parts. She had quite the complicated life, for sure. There's a lot here to keep your interest, esp for the 30somethings who can relate to the time frame. Loved it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and poignant- What do "30 Rock", "The Office", and "The Happy Hypochondriac" have in common? They are all Very funny, they all make you wince occasionally, and they are all undeniably well-written. Spitzer's chapters (pick your favorite) will make you want to write, will make you want to think twice when you feel a pain or notice a spot or lump, and will make you want to read her next book. What's next, Kat?
5.0 out of 5 stars Too Funny- This book is just too funny. Having hypochondriac tendencies myself, I found that I was able to relate to the stories. Ms. Spitzer does a wonderful job showing that life can throw you a curve ball, but it is how you react to it that affects whether it is a negative or positive experience. It shows that being afraid of the health issues that surround us does not have to be debilitating. If you are looking for a fun, hilarious, entertaining read, this is definitely the book for you! I would recommend it to anyone....more
