Dad Is Fat
Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just finished reading this book for my book club (I am late). It was a bit difficult for me to get into.

It kind of read like a joke book where every sentence is a setup to a joke.

And, while I appreciate Mr. Gaffigan’s clean humor and focus on being a dad, it felt a bit disconnected because of all the jokes and the need to be funny all the time (because it is not).

I did enjoy much of the humor and his interesting take on fatherhood. I would have just liked something more autobiographical with humorous stories thrown in rather than what felt like a script for a show (with “beat” thrown in to make sure I caught the humor).
