The Shape of Us reviewed by Pat

A group of women, complete strangers from diverse backgrounds, who meet on a weight-loss chat-line is the subject of this book by Lisa Ireland.

Part of the text is their actual chat-line content,  which whilst originally about weight-loss, soon develops into a far deeper and meaningful discussion about the state of their lives in general.  They soon become involved in each other’s problems and decisions, and losing weight takes a back seat to more far reaching issues.  An easy read that takes a few twists and turns on the way.
