    One thought on “You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl: Observations on Life from the Shallow End of the Pool”

    1. I received this book through the first reads So far, I hate it And I don t use the word hate lightly It is awful I m not sure if I m going to finish and I will certainly not recommend this book to anyone.Update I did not finish it I just couldn t bring myself to waste any time reading this horrible book I may recycle this book so no one else is subjected to it.

    2. I had a lot of issues with You Don t Sweat Much for a Fat Girl which I received at no cost from the publisher via the First Reads program First, Mrs Rivenbark doesn t appear to be terribly bright At one point she goes on about how she became anemic, which she apparently thinks means that she has hardly any blood Some of her ignorant statements made me cringe but some of them she was clearly just proud of For example I got news for the New Yorker I don t even get half those black and white cartoo [...]

    3. Each chapter is an essay, for lack of a better word It s very scatterbrained, though She starts on one topic and ends up on another For instance, she starts one chapter on Susan Boyle and ends up talking about not being able to open a Cover Girl Simply Ageless compact Each story is cute on it s own, but together it doesn t mesh well.She includes crude unnecessary language She calls a child a little shit It s not like she s being mean wanting to call names It s just replacing the word child or bo [...]

    4. When a book makes me feel as if I am talking over margaritas behind closed doors with one of my funniest smartassed girlfriends and I have to pace myself to be sure I don t finish it TOO quickly, it deserves some little gold stars I first discovered Celia Rivenbark when a friend gave me a copy of We re Just Like You, Only Prettier and said This reminded me of you You will LOVE it Come to think of it, he was probably insulting me kinda like that friend who jokingly gave me the Bitch socks for Xma [...]

    5. This book was suppose to be a laugh out loud book Well, I m still waiting I think I giggled once the whole book It was full of complaining, put downs and a lot of B notching Where s the humor in that I give it one star for the cover, which is the only thing I liked about this book Its a down right shame.

    6. I read 20 pages and it was 19.5 pages too many Not funny, poorly written I didn t expect much and got even less Don t bother.

    7. This is an ARC I received after the pub date Nevertheless, here s my review.Just a few pages in I had three uproarious laughs I expected hilarity, and I read and waited, read and waited, read and waited.r happened.I really was expecting to like this book I love humorw I can t imagine why anyone would have published this garbage Hey, I m nothing if not honest Reading this book, I was reminded of a failure of a really bad stand up comedienne a lone, unfunny, can t carry it off onstage person whos [...]

    8. I have been reading Celia Rivenbark since I first discovered her in our library I m not sure which book caught my eye first a tie, probably, between We re Just Like You, Only Prettier and Bless Your Heart, Tramp Both had me laughing myself silly and thinking I had found a new Southern friend of course, she doesn t know me from Adam, but I still think she d at least stop and say Heeeeeeey to me if I said it first The next few books were still cute, but were lacking something, something I just cou [...]

    9. I won this book from as a First Reads giveaway YOU DONT SWEAT MUCH for a fat girl Observations on Life from the SHALLOW END of the POOL by Celia Rivenbark.This book is absolutely hilarious Celia Rivenbark and I always want to say Riverbank is the South s answer to Erma Bombeck In this collection of 28 short stories, Celia s views on life are filled with her trademark style of southern snark and sass If you need a laugh and want to read some smart ass humour this is the book for you I even caught [...]

    10. This is the fourth of Celia Rivenbark s books that I have read suffice it to say that I m a fan.Rivenbark takes no prisoners with her witty essays on topics ranging from Twitter to elementary school science fairs and the cultures associated with them She pokes fun at Southern culture, sexual addiction and politics as well Some of the essays are laugh out loud funny, some of them are snarky and some of them are thought provoking Many of them are all three She even takes on her family, with advent [...]

    11. I was excited to return home and find this Giveaway prize on my front porch I was not familiar with Celia s work, but as I began reading, I felt like I had met an dear friend Her humor was spot on and had me actually laughing out loud than once a bit tough to explain to a spouse trying to sleep late at night This book now has prime bookshelf real estate beside my collection of works by other humorous female writers and is a go to when my day is a bit rough around the edges and I need a smile.

    12. Originally published at BethsBookReviewsThis was only marginally amusing, at best, and I m being very generous I m not sure if it s because I m from New England and really resent the author s use of the term Yankee or what, but I really found this than a bit offensive The only, only good thing about the entire book was the information about a study scientists did on cats to see how they spent their time watching TV, playing, sleeping, looking out the window, etc I strongly recommend giving this [...]

    13. I won this in a First Reads Giveaway.It took me a while to warm up to the book I d give it only 2 1 2 stars if I could, but rounded up There was snark than humor I m not sure if the stories were better as I went along, or I became used to the author s writing style, but I liked it better by the end The stories were heavy in current event references which led me to wonder whether book format was the best publishing choice.

    14. This book may not be for everyone It certainly isn t for the highfalutin My good friend Donna in beautiful downtown Hammonton, NJ says the book reminds her of me haha Could she be referring to my smart ss side I should be so funny The chapter where Midge writes Barbie a letter on Barbie s 50th birthday had me laughing out loud This is the perfect book for sitting outside your double wide, in your lawn chair, with a cocktail in hand.

    15. Some lol moments, lots of eye rolling moments I just wanted a quick, funny read and I was drawn to this because the author hails from Wilmington, NC Funny and from the South Sign me right up It was just an okay read for me Her takes on Twitter, pushy salespeople, and OctoMom I found entertaining The rest, eh a little too snark tastic for my liking.

    16. I received this book through the first reads I am really glad that I didn t spend my money on this book While the book subject is ok, and there are some spots of humor, I did not care for this book The flow was stilted, and it seemed like she kept getting sidetracked If you are a fan of Rivenbark s, read it If you aren t, then I would pass on this book.

    17. I ve enjoyed previous books by the author, so I thought this would be a fun read Some chapters were downright funny, but others were painful I think what really irritates me is that I m sure the author is an intelligent woman, but she plays the dumb southern belle card As an educated southern woman, I don t appreciate her reinforcement of a stereotype I struggle against.

    18. In one word this book is Random I know this book is meant to be a funny and at times it was but it was so random and all over the place that it is hard to focus It is a stand up comedy show in a book The book wasn t bad, it would just be nice to have less rambling.

    19. A collection of short humorous stories about the author s life and life in general However, I wish they were funnier and they are definitely out there Laurie Notoro writes much better women s humor 3 stars.

    20. I love reading books by Southern humorists that are also liberals It is THE best combination If you haven t read Celia Rivenbark, START NOW.

    21. Great laughs Have some new sayings that I have already been using in my day to day life I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

    22. This was another fun laugh out loud book, really enjoyed the stories and the insightful humor that she writes.

    23. From the bestselling, award winning author of You Can t Drink All Day If You Don t Start In The Morning, comes another collection of hilarious observations that will resonate with women, mothers, and girlfriends everywhereIn her newest wickedly irreverent humor collection, Celia Rivenbark cracks up while getting her downward facing dog on, pines for a world in which every mom gets to behave like Betty Draper and wonders why everybody s so excited about the Science Fair when there aren t even any [...]

    24. First, just take a look at the book cover The lady is chilling on a floating device in all her ample proportioned glory That is all.In her latest collection of essays, Celia Rivenbark tells it like it is, with her trademark funny southern snark I ve read a couple of her other works Stop Dressing Your Six Year Old Like a Skank A Slightly Tarnished Southern Belle s Words of Wisdom and Belle Weather Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits It is my opinion that You Don t Sweat Much for a [...]

    25. So it s a well known fact that I m a humongous fan of Southern literature and especially Southern humor I mean, how can you not love the title of this book of essays from Celia Rivenbark I ve read Rivenbark s other books which have equally amazing titles and have enjoyed her humor for several years now, so I was excited when Tanya at Wunderkind PR offered me a chance to review this one And it met and exceeded all of my expectations I picked it up last night expecting to read an essay or two befo [...]

    26. I ve never read anything be this author, but I ve definitely noticed her books before With previous titles as Stop Dressing Your Six Your Old Like a Skank and Bless Your Heart, Tramp, how could you not notice them I think this book is officially considered to be a collection of humorous essay, but she reminds me so much of Jen Lancaster that I m thinking it could also be considered a memoir She does mention her family as well which helps the memoir classification, plus I don t currently have a H [...]
