I really like this book! I fell in love with the main character, Claudia she is so real and dramatic. This book is about a "perfect" marriage until one partner decided they want a baby after they had both decided they were never going to have children. The characters are very memorable and likeable!
Ben and Claudia quickly knew they were soulmates - they could talk for hours, enjoyed each other's jokes and company, and, oh yes, neither one ever wanted children. A match made in heaven until one mind is changed about that baby thing...
Really a very nice study of love, of sacrifice, and of family. I'd recommend it to anyone, even if they typically do not care for chick lit.
I really enjoy Emily Giffin's books, and this one was no exception. This one was definitely more mature than Borrowed or Blue. By the end of the book it has you thinking about marriage in general, and questioning what kind of sacrifices we are willing to make for those that we really love. Emily Giffin has been labeled as a chick lit writer, and while this book has shades of that, it's a lot more. Very good read.
She has a real knack for writing about intimacy and insight of her characters. The dialogue is so REAL. I really enjoyed this book. Not just a fluff piece romantic novel. MUCH more.
This is her best effort in my opinion. Chick Lit - yes but with wonderfully developed characters and some nice surprises. Fallible, loveable, funny people - a quick read, great for the beach.
