Book Review: The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted
Elizabeth Berg’s The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted and Other Small Acts of Liberation is a collection of short stories. The protagonists are all females; most of them are middle-aged or older. Several stories deal with weight and weight-loss issues. One wonders how much personal experience has gone into these stories, because a search on Google Images reveals that Elizabeth Berg is an absolutely stunning woman who has probably never darkened the doors of a Weight Watchers session in her life.
The characters are believable, although some of their antics may require a certain level of suspension of disbelief. Then again, I’ve lived a pretty ‘ordinary’ life, so what do I know?
A fun, easy-to-read book.
