Another wonderful story from Jennifer Weiner. Also, the narration is excellent - it alternates among three different narrators, one for each of the three main characters.
I am a fan of jennifer wiener, and always feel addicted to whatever novel of hers I'm reading. I like how the lives of the characters gradually intertwined over the course of the story. However, there were some pretty big leaps toward the end.
If you are a Jennifer Weiner fan, you will enjoy this book.
Yes, I would see it.
Sure -- great story about the implications of fertility medicine from many different points of view. Anyone who has ever undergone fertility treatments could relate.
Jennifer Weiner is a solid writer. I enjoy her a lot. She takes chic-lit to the next level with dynamic characters and compelling stories. She's very good at weaving together intricate character histories and well flushed out plot points.
Just came across this title a few weeks ago and bought it. I've been a fan of Ms. Weiner's for years, in fact, I have to be in the right frame of mind to re-listen to some of her books because they are so emotional. I loved the multiple characters and voices in this one.
Opinionated redhead who uses audiobooks to make L.A. traffic bearable.
I enjoyed the way the story played out--it was interesting having the different perspectives of each of the main characters, and I loved hearing it in their own "voice." I wasn't crazy about the ending--a bit too "happily ever after" for my taste, but that aside it was still a decent listen. Each of the women had a very fresh perspective on the situation, and it was fun to see how things intertwined, unraveled and then came together.
The book was based around the story of 4 strangers who lives eventually become involved with one another over their involvement with an IVF baby. It was very well done, lots of detail and character building. But the climax/ending fell flat...it was rather boring and seemed like the book just needed an ending.I usually really like Jennifer Weiner's word but this wasn't one of her better books.
Yes, I would have changed the ending.
The narrators were great. Only the narrator who portrayed India was questionable.
No I probably wouldn't - I love several Jennifer Weiner books, but in this one, I struggled with not relating to any of the characters. I seldom put down books, and this one that I did. Eventually I picked it back up and was glad I did, but still.
I liked the ending. It was realistic and resolved well.
The four different voices were nice.
I like mysteries, suspense and thrillers. Occasionally I will listen to some scifi or fantasy.
No, I liked the audio.
The interaction of the ladies at the end.
The different characters were easy to follow and I appreciated how different narrators were used.
The ending brought everyone together as they deserved. It was very satisfying.
Could have done without the sex "scenes". Didn't add anything to the story. Seemed gratuitous.
