Review: Take a Load off, Mona Jamborski


TAKE A LOAD OFF, MONA JAMBORSKI             By Joanna Franklin Bell


It’s pure serendipity I stumbled across this genuine, heart-felt book. Mona is a depressed, morbidly obese recluse until she becomes friends with her food delivery boy, Moises, who recognizes her fears and helps transform her life. Bell’s character driven story draws the reader in right away, with her relatable characters. Written from a first person’s POV, Bell gives you a look behind the emotional dynamics of an obese recluse which may give some insight as to why some people choose this lifestyle.

I became so absorbed in the book, I read it in one sitting. Highly recommended for anyone, especially for those interested how agoraphobia can take over a person’s life.
