Publisher's Summary

After undergoing gall bladder surgery at age 23, Jennette Fulda decided it was time to lose some weight. Actually, more like half her weight. At the time, Jennette weighed 372 pounds.
Jennette was not born fat. But, by fifth grade, her response to a school questionnaire asking What would you change about your appearance? was "I would be thinner.” Sound familiar?
Half-Assed is the captivating and incredibly honest story of Jennette’s journey to get in shape, lose weight, and change her life. From the beginning - dusting off her never-used treadmill and steering clear of the donut shop - to the end with her goal weight in sight, Jennette wows listeners with her determined persistence to shed pounds and the ability to maintain her ever-present sense of self.

Ok story, obnoxious narrator

This was a decently entertaining/inspiring story, however I almost couldn't get past how bad the narration was. It was distractingly terrible and made it hard to fully immerse yourself into the story. Just spoken in the slowwwwwest, most emotionless monotone. Wouldn't recommend for that reason.

Robotic Narration

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

No, in fact, I will actively avoid books that she has narrated. I found her voice to be frustratingly robotic and devoid of expression. The book is full of jokes that are delivered in a flat monotone. In my opinion, there was a distinct disconnect between Teri Clark Linden and the story she was telling. It felt like listening to Schizoid story time.

A great book about weight loss-that is not a diet book

Jennette is so honest about her weight loss-which is exactly what one needs to hear.
