Meet Julia, a wildly successful television producer who appears to have the picture-perfect life. But beneath the surface, things are not as perfect as they seem. Stuck in a loveless relationship with her boyfriend, Mark, Julia thinks a baby is the answer...but she may want a baby more than she wants her boyfriend. Will a trip to New York City with a jet-setting friend, and all the glittering energy and eligible men the city brings, help her discover what she really needs?
Maeve, on the other hand, is allergic to commitment. A feisty, red-haired, high-power career girl, she cherishes her ability to do just as she pleases and breaks out in a rash every time she passes a stroller. But when her no-strings-attached nightlife leads to an unexpected pregnancy, her reaction may be just as unexpected. And then there's Samantha, happily married and eager to be the perfect June Cleaver-esque mother. But baby George brings only exhaustion, extra pounds, and marital strife to her once tidy life. Is having an affair with a friend's incredibly sexy husband the answer?
By turns witty, rollicking, and tender, Babyville isn't really a story about babies, it's about three friends whose lives are suddenly turned upside-down by that life-changing event that hangs over the head of every girl: motherhood.

"Somerville's skillful narration makes the audio edition sparkle." (AudioFile)
I usually hate chick books, but this one wasn't so bad. Jane Green is a decent writer, so it's not like you have to suffer through it the way you would if you tried listening to The Time Traveler's Wife. If you're up for non-suspensful, easy-to-follow, sex-in-the-city-type entertainment, then this will suit your needs perfectly. And, as an added bonus, the narrator is good.
