A Thin Book of Fat Poems by Liliana Kohann is a wonderful book of poetry and journal entries that will take you on a journey of self-discovery. The poems will make you laugh out loud or touch your heart, but there is always a clear, strong message behind each one. Through the brilliantly crafted poems, you will explore what the deep-rooted thought patterns are concerning addiction and low self-esteem. You will also be motivated to make positive changes in your life and uncover your potential. The poetry is thought-provoking and compelling. It will trigger you to have the confidence to change your negative self-image to a positive one by accepting yourself for who you are, and having the confidence to take the first step. Each poem is designed to question your own inner thoughts and drive you to a more fulfilling life.

From the first poem, Three Desserts, this book of poetry grabbed my attention. Every poem made you consider why you are prolonging taking action to reach personal goals. The journal entries were a personal insight from the author, but ones I could relate to, especially Today I Allowed Myself To Cry, which was extremely sad. The Mirror looked at the destructive problem of negative self-image. There were also poems such as You Can, which inspires change by reminding us that we all have a choice in life, whether to fight for your goals or concede. My favourite poem, however, was Most Stubborn Thing, which cleverly describes the arguments you have with your excess weight: ‘No matter what I say or do it sits right here, fearing nobody. ’ I think every woman has done that at some point in their lives. A perfect gift for any woman who wants to make powerful changes in her life and be entertained in the process.
