Publisher's Summary

Meet Zoe and Greg Milton, a married couple who have let themselves go a bit.
Zoe was a stunner in her college days, but the intervening decades have added five stone, and removed most of her self-esteem. Greg's rugby-playing days are well and truly behind him, thanks to countless pints of beer and chicken curry.
When Elise, a radio DJ and Zoe's best friend, tells them about a new competition, it seems like the perfect opportunity to turn their lives around. Fat Chance will pit six hefty couples against one another to see who can collectively lose the most weight and walk away with a £50,000 prize.
So begins six months of abject misery, tears, and frustration—that just might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to them - in another laugh-out-loud look at the way we live now from bestselling author Nick Spalding.

I freakin loved this book!

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.

Absolutely hilarious

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.
