I absolutely loved this book! I cannot rave about it enough. This was the type of book that I read in record time as I couldn’t put it down. It was hilarious, witty and some parts made me absolutely laugh out loud at them. I think anyone that has struggled with weight issues should especially read this book, as so much you just nod your head at and makes you think ‘wow I am not the only one that thought that’ It also has a powerful message to it and it will be one that I will re-read again and again.
The Bookmagnet gave a 5 star review: ‘A well-deserved 5 stars for this brutally honest and absolutely hilarious debut from Liz Jones; this book needs to be on every woman's bookshelf.’ Priya, from Syllables of Swathi said she ‘applauds the author’, while both Whispering Stories and The Bookwormery said 8 ½ Stone made them ‘giggle and cry at its honesty’. Both Emma Lee Potter and Babbage and Sweetcorn expressed how much they enjoyed the humour and sarcasm in the novel.
