The narration is awful. I found myself auguring with Ms Mills over how she be telling the story because her robotic, nasal voice was overwhelmingly irritating. The parts of the story I could focus on left me frustrated because of the writing. Nick Spalding talks of a curtain growling as it is pulled across; seriously? Growling? And uses narrative viewpoints that are impossible such as the woman in the changing room who's stuck in a dress so badly that she can only just see through the top of it but can somehow describe what the dress looks like round the waist. Just awful. I'm getting my money back. Avoid.

I was very much looking forward to this book as a little light relief after reading some thrillers. The female narrator was terrible, like a robot with no emotion at all. The male narrator was better but still a bit stiff. The content of the novel was funny enough and i probably would have enjoyed reading it myself. There was a lot of fat-bashing though which was a bit off putting. Zoe calling her boss pig dog for example just made me cringe. A funny little read for those trying to lose a little weight in January, although if you are more than 5 pounds overweight it could leave a bitter taste in your mouth worse than a slimming shake.

SO funny!!!! This book was absolutely hilarious. It's one of my favorite books so far this year. I love the writing style, and the voices for both Zoe and Greg were perfect. At first I loved Zoe's part, but then after a few rounds of Greg, I decided his was funnier. There were times where I was doubled over in laughter, tears streaming down my face. The story was witty, sarcastic, poignant and had an overall terrific message. I totally recommend, especially if you like books that make you laugh out loud.

If you have ever wanted to lose weight, ever been on a diet or tried exercise to lose weight- and you have a sense of humor - listen to this book!
Fat Chance follows a married couple, Zoe and Greg, through a Biggest Loser type radio show. Written in journal style with both parties describing their experiences. Painfully honest at times, but so flipping hilarious that you can't help but laugh out loud.
Narration was excellent from both Heather Wilds and Napoleon Ryan, I would be hard pressed to chose a favorite.
This book also inspired me to get back out there and start exercising again, so it was definitely a win win picking this jem up while it was on sale.
