  1. First off, I am embarrassed to say that I didn t realize until the end of the book that the title was a metaphor and that Fatty doesn t ever, in fact, have a diner party More the pity Anyway I found the book rather ridiculous and boring It is nice to see a fat person who doesn t make excuses for himself, and realizes full well the consequences of his choices Fatty is a likeable character with an adoring wife, who appreciates all the joy he can get in life The book is a series of embarrassing and [...]


  2. I am a true devotee of Alexander McCall Smith and try to get my hands on everything that comes out Sometimes I have to make a real effort to get books that have come out in Europe but have not yet hit the American market That was the case with this book, and now I dont feel it was worth the effort His choice of topic mocking fat people, is a poor one in my opinion It is true that in the end, good values win out and the reader is pleasantly surprised But the assumption throughout the book is that [...]


  3. HUH When scrolling through my reviews just now, tells me it can t find a title for this book Weird, as Fatty O Leary s Dinner Party jumps right out at you from the cover, as does the name of its well known author, Alexander McCall SmithThat said, this is one of those fun and easy reads that can fit in a pocket,and help kill time on trains and in waiting rooms This is the story of an overweight Arkansan who goes to Ireland, somehow ends up owning a horse he can t afford, comes home, gets shoved i [...]


  4. This is the fourteenth McCall book I ve read The Isabelle Dalhousie series are faux mysteries and are very well written The Corduroy Mansions books are stories of a set of Londoners with droll comic overtones, also well written In fact, it is a given that McCall writes beautifully and is envied by many American and British authors.This book is seriously funny and unlike anything I have read by this author It is laugh out loud funny and, at times, very sad andmelancholy The plot covers a fat anti [...]


  5. As an Alexander McCall Smith devotee, I relish anything he writes This one is fun, as its hero is what is becoming a familiar figure, especially in the U.S the Big Fat Man As a small woman, I roll my eyes at the Fatty O Learys of the world trying to squeeze into the airplane seat next to mine, but now, having read Fatty s side of the situation, I m vowing to be a little sympathetic I truly love how McCall Smith gets his characters into terrible situations, but manages to get them out, often at t [...]


  6. It is always refreshing to read Alexander McCall Smith s books Their gentle humor and lighthearted irony warm the heart, as well as provide a reminder that there are still good people of all colors, shapes and sizes in the world You can t help but love Fatty O Leary


  7. The three little Portuguese Irregular Verbs novellas were absolute gems, among the best things Alexander McCall Smith every wrote Hence, I was quite enthusiastic to see the author return to the novella format This book was a terrible disappointment It was crude, cruel, and not at all clever The only attempt at humor was in crude slapstick It was cynical, and had no redeeming features This seems like shameless profiteering on the author s name he didn t even give it a decent try I hope the 44 Sco [...]


  8. Since I live in the same region area as the setting for part of this novel, I was curious to see how it would be described by a Scotsman also wondered if he had visited Arkansas ever Whatever the answer, it was done kindly and right on the money a good witty read , just so.


  9. Another superb book from A Mc S, immediately drawn in to Fatty O Leary s character, his friends and his foes Laughed out loud lots, whilst feeling guilty at poor old Fatty s dilemmas Thank you, Mr McCall Smith.


  10. Unfortunately, not one of Alexander McCall Smith s best efforts All a bit silly and contrived Pleasant enough, but doesn t really go anywhere Fatty and Betty are a somewhat irritating couple and it s all a bit predictable Try another one of this writer s books instead.
