Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

Dad Is FatDad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From Comedian and fellow "The Walking Dead" Superfan, Jim Gaffigan, comes Dad Is Fat. A humorous look at being a parent of not one, but five kids in today's society.

Jim's humor could be taken the wrong way by some, but if you open your mind, you can see that even though parenting is an important job, it can be fun. At least I think it can...

I love the synopsis on the back of the book:

"Have you ever read a book that has changed your life? Well neither has Mr. Gaffigan.

This may be because Mr. Gaffigan is lazy and has poor eyesight, or it may be because he has five very young children and lives in a two bedroom apartment in New York City. Yes, five children. No, he only looks Mormon. Jim is like you: busy, self-consumed, and exhausted. The only difference may be that Mr. Gaffigan is a comedian and very, very good looking.

Sharply observed and explosively funny, Dad Is Fat is Jim's tribute to all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home."

Just the back of the book alone, gives you a peek into Jim's humor. I loved this book. I couldn't stop laughing as I read it.

*I recieved a complimentary copy of this book, from Blogging From Blogs, in exchange for my honest review and opinon.*
