Book Review: Three Fat Singletons by J.M.Bartholomew

Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew

This book is about 3 thirty-something friends called Jesse a divorcee wanting to find someone to love, Mary a man-eater who always attract the married man and Dotty a Christian virgin who just want to meet someone to settle down with.
These three singletons feel unlucky in love as you can see in the title that they are overweight and wish they were slimmer and men will look more at them then laugh at them and call them names.

So they choose to go on a week-long getaway to Greece they made sure it was an adult only holiday resort so they can meet some single men and have some fun. But the holiday doesn't run smoothly it throws them some unexpected challenges as there is romance, sex, adultery and embarrassment. But while they on holiday it ain't all about them finding men to have their wicked way with it's for them to find themselves and start to appreciate themselves and build their confidence and self-esteem especially Dotty. The book ain't all doom and gloom it has hilarious parts what made me laugh out loud.

I felt for the characters as you see how being overweight can make them feel individual. Dotty is the one I feel more for as she realise that she can lose weight but she struggles with willpower with food. I can connect with the character as I personally know how my love food can become the addiction. I hope I see more of these three characters and I hope they find happiness.

I love finding authors I haven't read before and seen their debut books. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read your book.
I can't wait to see what J.M.Bartholomew will write next.

I don't know exactly how old I was but I remember being in primary school and my teacher saying in front of the whole class 'Goodness you are as heavy as I am' when she decided for some reason known only to her, to weigh all the pupils. This was the beginning of my realisation that I wasn't in the body that society deemed normal. It didn't take too much more years for me to fall well and truly into the category of obese and then morbidly obese. Thankfully I kept a sense of humour throughout and often some of the most horrific things that happen can, in hindsight, can be hilarious! 

Before losing nine stones in weight I personally explored the fat-underworld in London and all of the places mentioned in the book are in existence, although for legal reasons one or two of the places have had their names changed. I consider myself an expert in the issues fat singletons (and marrieds) face!
