REVIEW for B as in Beauty



A thank you goes out to Miriam for sending me this book to review!



TITLE: B as in Beauty
AUTHOR: Alberto Ferreras

GENRE: Chick Lit

RATING: 2 Stars

I love chick lit and I really love chick lit with a weight related storyline. This is the state of mind I eagerly started reading this book. The fact that it is written by a male also made me very curious as to how this book would turn out.

Unfortunately, I just thought it was average. I hated the way the main character seemed to be talking at me instead of simply telling me the story as it unfolds. For example: "I work in an ad agency in New York...in case you don't know it" - I found this irritating and kept wanting to say "I didn't ask - just get on with the story already". Also, "B" was kind of boring.

I just never found myself engaging into the storyline at all. I have read a few chick lits lately that seem to have extremely unengaging main characters - that have left me cold.

Sorry this was a disappointment for you. I just won a copy - I hope I like it better than you did.

Ugh! You should have know, written by a man! I am sorry but a man just can not do chick-lit justice.
