So it’s been on my radar, and recently I snapped it up because I needed to read something light after all of the heavy shit I’ve been reading this year. I’m now 58 pages in and I don’t think I can finish it. The “diary” writer Jackie M. Pane – is a miserable, insecure person who has major issues with her body and the perception of those around her. Being in her head is a horrible place to be, and while this is supposed to be humor, I failed to find the giggles in it.
I suppose, as a woman who spent many useless years coming to terms with her own sexual body, I do not find it funny reading about this stuff. It’s kind of like watching “War of the Roses” as a person who watched their parents going through a ridiculous divorce, I found no humor watching this movie and had to walk out before it was over – something I’ve rarely done.
So “Does My Bum Look Big in This?” gets a big thumbs down from me, but then it’s probably my issue more than anything right?
Yours, without the bollocks
