Baby Proof | [Emily Giffin]

Baby Proof

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes...a baby carriage? Isn’t that what all women want? Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart.

Publisher's Summary

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes...a baby carriage? Isn’t that what all women want? Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It’s about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was - and that there is no possible compromise. It’s about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about the things we will do - and won’t do - for love.

    "Another Great Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Baby Proof to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    A Great Read and Cynthia Nixon makes it even better.

    Story
    "Baby Proof" feels like chick-lit-with-bite."

    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.

    Story
    "Interesting opinions..."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Emily Giffin? Why or why not?

    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!


    What aspect of Christine Marshall’s performance would you have changed?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I got exactly what I expected with this book. It was time for an easy listen; so, I went searching for a fluff book.

    "Weak!"
    Would you try another book from Emily Giffin and/or Christine Marshall?

    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.


    Has Baby Proof turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes! The characters were not believable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christine Marshall’s performances?

    Yes, she did well.
