Dad Is Fat Review

DSC 5159blog

I had seen a couple clips of Jim Gaffigan's comedy routines before, so when I saw Dad Is Fat was up for review I decided I'd like to read it.  I always appreciate a book that can make me laugh, and I was hoping that would be the case with this book.

First, I have to say that I don't necessarily agree with or like all of the jokes in this book, and I was a little disappointed at some of the language.  I also thought some of his jokes about Jesus and the Bible were irreverent, and I didn't like that.

Aside from those things, I did think most of the book was pretty hilarious!  I was laughing out loud at something in every chapter.

Gaffigan is a father to five children, and his comedy mostly centers around family life - the trials and ridiculous situations parents are thrown into, the funny things kids do, and they way they change our lives.  Though sometimes his jokes seem to focus on the negatives, you can definitely tell after reading the book that he loves his family.

I thought this book was a nice break during the day, and it brought out the humor that I had never thought about before in so many common parenting situations.  The chapter on toddlers was probably my favorite, because that is where I am in life right now and it was so spot-on and funny!  I think most parents of young kids can find something to laugh about in this book, so if you are looking for something humorous to read, I'd recommend checking it out.

Note: I received this book for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
