Ms. Green completely gets what it is like to long for a child while others come by it so easily. It's rare that someone "gets" what it is like to struggle with infertility. This is a great book for all those venturing into the world of trying to conceive, and those with kids of their own.
A delightful book, funny and well-written, that rings with truth. Now I am going to order every single book by Jane Green
A fun story, although a bit long. The first part dragged for me, but section 2 and 3 moved a bit more. Overall, an enjoyable book.
I will admit that as I read the first part of the book I was starting to feel like it might be totally predictable and a little bit boring, but once I got to the second and third parts, I was surprised at how unpredictable it actually is. I absolutely LOVED this book. It's a great story about life and how the best laid plans go awry but can turn out to be the best thing. Another wonderful story by Jane Green.
amusing story, but a little on the crude side. Not the greatest, but certainly not the worst!
Loved it. Jane Green is wonderful. This book is about women at different stages of their lives and not sure what they want for their futures.
A wonderful story about life. Sometimes what you think you need, you don't. What you think you don't need you do! Life throws things at you and your left to deal with them. This story mingles with several women, their lives all intersect, and yet are separate. Babies, Husbands, and New York Oh my! I had fun with this one,though it did take me a little bit to get into it. But if you sit down, by chapter three you do really want to know what's going to happen. The characters are likeable and engaging.
Great story about 3 women having the issues that normal women have. Very easy read, I enjoyed it thoroughly.
I really enjoyed this book! It's about three different women with different views on motherhood. One is pregnant, one is trying to get pregnant, and the other doesn't want children. This book is very unpredictable and hard to put down.
This is the first Jane Green novel I've read, but I liked it so much that I'm reading a second one!
What can I say? I absolutely LOVE Jane Green's novels. It's great.
An okay book. I was expecting more humor.
I loved this book and could not put it down!
I thought this book was great, although the beginning started a bit slower than any other Jane Green novels I've read. But in true Jane Green form, it quickly turned into a book that I just did not want to put down. I was a bit let down at the end. I wanted more....a sequel....something!! But that's probably just because I thought it was so good I didn't want it to end!
If you like Jane Green, I'd definitely recommend you read it!
This is the second book I read by this author and didn't like it as much as the first. It was ok but it hard to get through. I usually hate putting a book down but not this one.
Another great Jane Green book!!!
This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down and read in a few sittings. Definitely a girlie book. Simple plot about several young women from the London area. I'm not going to summarize the plot here because that would ruin the book. Needless to say it's the perfect beach/long flight/rainy weekend read. Well written but not too deep. Imagine Sex and the City characters dealing with pregnancy and motherhood.
Never read this author before and since then I have read all her books.. I think this is one of her better ones but they all are good. Awesome reading book that makes you not want to put it down.
This book was so fun! I really enjoyed all the characters and the plot! Highly recommend it!
fun read, one of jane green's best.
Awesome, fun book! This book is such breath of fresh air...I couldn't put it down!
Jane Green is one of the best chick lit authors I've discovered so far! Hysterical!
Another good one by Jane Green. Easy read. Tells the story of 3 different women.
jane Green is perhaps one of my favorite authors at the time. i am in a phase where I like the easy comedy reads that I can relate to. These books keep me laughing and make it hard to put them down. The characters in Babyville are so real and you can sympathize with their struggles through Green's humor.
Well-written account of the way pregnancy (or lack thereof) affects different people. Not an intellectual read, but fun.
Good, once you get into it. The first section "Julia" was a bit slow in my opinion but other two sections "Maeve" and "Sam" were great. So, get through that first section [but don't skip it because you need the back story]before you decide to stop reading. It really is good once you get past that. :)
Really cute chick-lit about three thirty-something friends who are each dealing with babies (or lack thereof): Julia is desperately trying to conceive with her not-so-excited boyfriend, Maeve is delightfully single when an unexpected pregnancy throws her world into chaos, and Sam is dealing with a new baby and finding herself attracted to someone else besides her husband.
Nice way that the author intertwines the characters' lives. Lovely, fun read!
Bestselling author applies her golden touch to the next phase of a girl's life in this sparkling, sexy tale about the complexities of modern motherly love. 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 single girl: motherhood.
Very good book!
Funny - I enjoyed the intertwined stories.
With Babyville, Jane Green confirms her position as one of the sharpist, funniest observers of modern life and romance. I am a Jane Green fan and read all of her books. This one was another great book of hers.
I enjoyed this book a good deal, and I'm not a mom! It's typical Jane Green--easy to read and an enjoyable story, but nothing that will change your life.
Jane Green is one of the queens of chick lit!
i love jane green and this is one of my favorites!
Julia thinks a baby is the answer to her stale relationship with Mark, but does she want a baby more than she wants her boyfriend? Maeve is commitment phobic but can a unexpected pregnancy change that? Samantha is a perfect June Cleaver mother, but what happens when motherhood stress leads to contemplating an affair?
Quick read! Not my favorite of the chick lit books.
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 thins a baby is the answer . . . but she may want a baby more than she wants her boyfriend.

But when her no-strings-attached nightlife leadds to an unexpected pregnancy, her reaction ay be just as unexpected . . .And then there's Samantha -- happily married and eager to be the perfect June Cleaver mother.

Its a cute romantic book great for girls who are pregnant or trying to get there.
Summary from back cover...Babyville isn't really a story about babies - it is about 3 friends who lives are suddenly turned upside down by that life-changing event that hangs over the head of every single girl - motherhood.
