I really enjoyed the fact that the main character was definite on her child free position. This is so refreshing. I surprisingly enjoyed this book and that may be the reason why. It was very real... very life-like. Not a traditional chick-lit, more melancholy. Being 30 years old, I am encompassing all the scenarios in this book, it really hit home. Glad I listened to it! Not sure about the ending, but overall... a good read!
Emily Griffin once again writes a great story that tugs at the heart strings. The story is both sad and hopeful at the same time. I cannot imagine how many people in the US alone have been in the same predicament.
A Great Read and Cynthia Nixon makes it even better.
It's quite a brave topic to tackle - women who don't want children. In this day and age, I think it's almost the last taboo. But it is the topic that author Emily Giffin addresses in "Baby Proof".
Knowing that the story would focus on this issue, I worried it would end up being black and white with a watered down and easily digestible ending but Emily Giffin kept to her usual high standard as I read my way through a messy, emotional, complicated and realistic story.
Despite such a sensitive and emotive topic, there were plenty of lighter moment "Baby Proof" feels like chick-lit-with-bite. It's simply more than humourous fluff. Enjoyable and recommended.
Yes. I have read Something Borrowed, Love the One You're With, and Heart of the Matter. Emily Giffin writes about horrible people, but she makes you like them!
I thought the narration was average. I did not listen to Cynthia Nixon read this, but I did listen to her read Heart of the Matter. I do think she could have added more of a "snarky" tone/attitude to the characters.
I got exactly what I expected with this book. It was time for an easy listen; so, I went searching for a fluff book.
I love Emily Griffin but this was not her best book. I read it after reading Something Borrowed and Something Blue so I was expecting something comparable. It was terrible compared to those two. I felt cheated after reading it.
Yes! The characters were not believable.
Yes, she did well.
