    Enjoyable Read

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Loved the main character as she is a real person that can be related to. The book had funny moments and sad moments. Great, fun book to read.

    Reading Heaven!

    From the moment main character Eleanor gorges on ice cream behind a dumpster, I knew this book was going to be something different and more real than I'd read in a long time. I connected deeply with Eleanor, and cried and laughed with her all of the way through this beautiful story of a woman taking care of a dying father figure and trying to figure out her own problems, which include, of course, eating, a contentious relationship with her narcissistic mother, a career that leaves her soul feeling sucked dry, and men who can't see past her size. The author's writing is deceptively simple. It's only when you stop and re-read something that was stated so perfectly you can see-smell-touch-taste it that you realize how masterful she really is. The eating scenes will leave you breathless! I can't recommend it highly enough. Treat yourself to a heavenly reading experience.
