One Minute Book Review: Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

Dad Is Fat

Summary:

This is a collection of humorous essays about Jim Gaffigan’s life as a father, husband, and shepherd of 5 kids.

What I Liked About It:

I’ll be honest. For the first eighty pages I was worried that it was going to be one of those books that was kind of sweet. Then around page eighty Jim Gaffigan had me snorting in bed as I quietly tried to read this book next to my sleeping husband. Which was what I was expecting, since watching his standup always makes me laugh. He kept it up until the last. . . oh, ten pages, when he wrapped it up in a sweet and heartwarming way. So if I really wanted to summarize this book, I’d say: hilarious and heartwarming. Love how much he loves his family!

What I Didn’t Like About It:

Nothing! Loved it all around.

The Verdict:

You’re going to like this if you have kids. If you don’t, you may not be able to appreciate it as well, but I’d at least give it a try, because I really enjoyed it.
