REVIEW for Feed Me

A great big thank you goes out to Jess at Random House for sending me this wonderful book!


TITLE: Feed Me

AUTHOR: Harriet Brown
GENRE: Non fiction

RATING; 4 Stars

I wasn't really sure about this book when I first heard of it. Eating issues are a big thing for me and I am extremely picky about the types of book on this topic. However, Feed Me by author Harriet Brown took a very delicate subject and explored it in a touching, realistic and respectful way.

Food and weight are such a big deal in today's society and I am absolutely in love with the way Brown explored the fact that not everybody will be a size 5 and that is okay. I fell instantly in love with this book on the first story where the first writer describes how her boyfriend innocently told her that he thought he was maturing because it did not even bother him that she was not skinny. At first, that got my back up, but when I read the rest of the story, I adored the way Brown took his back-handed compliment and used it to explore her own unresolved issues about her weight.

This book is loaded with these types of inspiring and honest stories about body image and how we and other people look at us. It was wonderful, wonderful and I am going to re-read it a second time - I felt very good after reading this book. I feel as though its actually okay NOT TO BE a size 5 - for today at least anyway!
