I couldn't wait to have time to read part of this book every evening. She really got it right about how women are treated in society. This book is timely with the #metoo movement, and a president who objectifies women. Highly recommend. If you don't understand this book, then the women's cosmetics & hair companies, along with women's magazines, have brainwashed you.

It just didn't make sense. All those rave reviews - did they read the same book I did? It's rare that I can't finish a book but this was so bad, I gave up after 150 pages. Confusing plot that was all over the map with some characters that were just way off base. The amount of senseless, descriptive pornography was ridiculous. It seemed as if it was there just to fill pages. I wouldn't recommend this book at all. It will be deleted from my library.

Poorly written, incomprehensible characters, and confusing message.

This book is fantastic and hilarious. Great for women of all types - those who 'diet' and those who just need a bit more self-love. Not only great characters I really loved but a fascinating plot and just the right pace. Could not put it down. Enjoy!

This book is amazing and should be an eye opener for those that make it all the way through. I have and will continue to recommend this title to all of my friends, male and female.

First, I want to make it clear that I am not a plus-sized woman. However, I have long been disgusted with the ideals our society has set forth for women while men have been allowed to "slide." My daughter and I have frequently been at a favorite "gathering place" where we have seen women dressed to the nines. Predictably, when the men show up, to put it nicely, they have put a lot less effort into their appearance than the women have! Then they wonder later why the women "aren't in the mood!" Get a clue, Guys! P.S.: By the way, I am now down to a size 2. I got rid of the gluteus maximus you seemed to like so much-needed and made so many cracks that you called "compliments" about! You scumbags caused me to hate my body! But ha-ha-ha! My "Kim Kardashian rump" is nearly totally flat now! I have made myself totally unbangable/unf*able!

This book really spoke to me! As someone who has tried a few diets a story about learning to embrace oneself is a message that does not come up in literature often without a man telling a woman to do so. A solid summer read!

Wow! Just...wow!! One of the best books I've read in years! With this great, important, needed-now-more-than-ever story, Ms. Walker joins the ranks of other great feminist authors such as Margaret Atwood, Ariel Levy, Sheri Tepper, & James Tiptree (AKA Alice Sheldon). Thank you for your art, Ms. Walker & keep writing, please!

I was trying very hard to get through the novel hoping that it would end differently than it did. I was very disappointed and experienced trouble following her plot.
