Eating My Feelings by Mark Brennan Rosenberg {review)



Title: Eating My Feelings (Tales of Overeating, Underperforming, and Coping with My Crazy Family)
Author: Mark Brennan Rosenberg
Pages: ebook 
Publication Date: August 6, 2013
Publisher: Three Press Rivers
Source: Publisher for review
Rating: It was ok with a few funny parts

I picked this book because of the ice cream on the cover. I need to stop picking books because of the purdy covers. They tend to disappoint.

Eating My Feelings is a group of essays about the life of the author. Some were funny but most didn't do it for me. I thought it was crass when it didn't need to be. The family was so outrageously dysfunctional that it seemed like it was made up.

I spent most of the time rolling my eyes out the things that happened to him or at the things he thought, much less shared with all the reading world.

It seemed to me that he just flat out didn't like himself through most of the book. I went into it thinking that it was going to be a light hearted book and I came away glad I didn't run in his circles.

While this book wasn't for me, I'm sure lots of people will find it hilarious.

  1. I hate being disappointed like that! It sounds interesting, but the family sounds like too much. The cover is fun, though!
