I love Jen Lancaster. She's hysterical. Before I even looked at her photo in the back of the book I had an image of her in my head from the first sentence. She's a potty mouth extraordinaire (love it!), she has insane amounts of self-esteem (jealous!), and had me laughing at least every other page. And not just snickering - guffawing. As in, Jonathan turns around and looks at me funny and I feel like I have to read him the passage that cracked me up. She's not afraid to tell you what she really thinks, and I like that. I've read so many stories where women just have zero self-esteem when it comes to body image, and it gets old and repetitive. This is a memoir out of the norm; she can be a total narcissistic beeyotch and I felt like punching her a few times because of her attitude, but I also started to love it because if you think about it, it's not narcissistic - it's just her version of "I'm awesome, so shut it." I'd like to pick her brain sometime.
