Laurie Notaro does it again! So many great chapters! The one about buying a new bra was so hilarious! And can you imagine your gynecologist calling you fat and other disparaging remarks. Laurie actually finds a man who loves her despite all her faults AND possible scary things associated with her past. Oh her poor husband he puts up with a lot from her you just have to have sympathy for him, especially the toothbrush incident.
These books are so much fun and I don’t care if I look like a crazy person listening to these and laughing out loud I need the laughs.
Hillary Huber’s narration is really great, her timing on all the great stories that Laurie has written is just spot on!

What disappointed you about Autobiography of a Fat Bride?
I almost never rate an audio book unless I loved it. Audio books can be tricky because if I don't like it, it's hard for me to tell if it's the book that I don't like, or the reader. But for whatever the reason, I didn't like or relate to any of the characters accept Nanna. She was adorable. But I loathed the main character. I found her completely unlikable. Always complaining. whining and generally miserable to be around.
Some of the stories seemed like they weren't fully fleshed out. As if she just had a word count to meet.
What could Laurie Notaro have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Maybe it would have been better with a different reader.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The only redeeming character in the book, for me, was Nanna. She was adorable. I enjoyed the stories where she was featured.
Any additional comments?
So many people seemed to have loved this book, that I feel like I should give the author at least 1 more try. Maybe I'll just get another one on kindle, so I can tell if it's really her I don't like or just the way the reader presented her.
