Thinner Thighs In Thirty Years

Rate this book
After twenty years of the American Dream, this AADD afflicted heroine is suddenly alone, left to review where she went wrong. She has mastered her dread of expressway driving but can't sleep without the radio. She despairs that she cooked seven thousand evening meals but sometimes, she misses that awful deadening life. She thinks aerobics and weight training might be the answer but there has to be something more. She joins an Obesity Study to look for her inner self but it freaks her out. She tries to date but men to her are like bison - woolly, almost extinct and gathered in a group in the distance. Suddenly, there's a glimmer of hope! A link to her old career. Can a re-claimed housewife compete? Can she muster the courage and keep her mouth shut? Please, please give her a chance.

I first heard about Thinner Thighs in a short Wired Magazine article. I was intrigued by the notion that someone could write a short story and self-publish it as a Kindle Single. Baehr is an excellent example of why we shouldn't ignore the short story. Beautifully written, Baehr's work has a unique voice that's both humorous and compact. I'll definitely be looking for more from her.

This monologue was a nice break from other more serious things I have been reading. I picked it up for free and it was short, so I went for it.

I was expecting it to be funnier than it was, but I am glad that the author got her words out and she went from being left to being stronger and not relying on her ex.

It was a nice little breather, but I am not sure who I would recommend it to.

This short was really enjoyable. It was like chatting with a good friend and went by quickly. Thinner Thighs in Thirty Years was written very well and moved along smoothly. Made me want to read more by this author. It was the ramblings of a just getting divorced mother of three. How her day went and what was going through her mind in different situations. I would recommend thios one for anyone wanting a read of something comfortable and relaxing.

Manic Depressed woman and off her meds!!

Funny, random, fast-paced... Divorced woman trying to adjust to life as newly single and living alone in her new place. I enjoyed this VERY short, random- thoughts read. Weird, huh?

I read this in two breakfasts; really liked it during my first breakfast, then felt "blah" about it during the finishing breakfast.

It has a very spoken-word feel, was funny and pretty tight. Technically worth four stars, but personally a three for me. I liked it enough that I want to try something else by this author and learn more about her.

Just a tiny book that was easy to read on the kindle app on my phone. Funny in parts; I think if have enjoyed it more as audio book.

Connie's writing is comedic, well-paced and touches a nerve or three. Read her books for the real thing!
