At first my eyes wouldn't make sense of the letters. Finally, they unscrambled. Loving a Larger Woman, said the headline, by Bruce Guberman. Bruce Guberman had been my boyfriend for just over three years, until we'd decided to take a break three months ago. And the larger woman, I could only assume, was me.
Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writing about other people's lives on the pages of the Philadelphia Examiner. But the day she opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.
Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world, Bruce has written. And Cannie -- who never knew that Bruce saw her as a "larger woman," or thought that loving her was an act of courage -- is plunged into misery, and into the most amazing year of her life.
Radiant with wit, bursting with surprises, and written with bite and bittersweet humor, Jennifer Weiner's deliciously readable debut novel reaches beyond Cannie's story and into the heart of every woman. Gut-level real and laugh-out-loud funny, Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit, and features an unbelievably funny cast of supporting characters, the strangest dog you'll ever encounter, and a heroine you'll never forget....Continua
Not so funny as I thougth. Easy to read for a non native english
this is not a chick lit book. Jennifer Weiner goes deep inside the problems of a young woman. She has to face her relationship with her father, her choice towards men and motherhood.
this book helps me to improve my sensibility, to understand that there is a different way to see the world.
I was immediately captivated by the character Jennifer Weiner created in this story and I loved watching her grow and develop as the pages turned.
Really funny and very heartwarming, the ending was almost perfect. You'll see what I mean. I really recommend this one. I loved the heroine, so spunky, but yet so real!
