I didn't even finish reading this book after I was about 2/3 of the way through. I guess it just wasn't my style, I didn't like the main character at all. She seemed out of touch and like a 12 year old girl, not a 38 year old woman. I finally gave up after I decided I didn't care what happened at the end anyway.
This was a good book, but not what I was expecting. I didn't like the main character. At 38-40 years old, I mean, seriously. I hated how whimsical she took getting pregnant and how easy she thought the whole thing would be. I also cannot get over what she did at the end. I don't know which way I would have been more angry about, but it didn't seem right.
Yes, it was funny in some parts, very funny. But... I dunno... I just don't know how I liked it (or not)... hmmm...
Wonderful book. I loved it!
I love Sarah Bird! This book especially was hilarious, I actually laughed out loud. It is also very insightful and touching, has several subjects worth a good discussion, did I mention that it is funny? Also a love story. Many layers to the story. I liked this book so much, I am going to read all Sarah Bird's books..... I'm on number four now, "The Boyfriend School" It's even better. Highly recommended!
This was an easy read and quite witty
At thirty-eight Trudy Herring is a dreamer, a sculptor of whimisical clay fligures, and a permanent temporary worker at the San Antonio Museum of Folk Art. but all that changes when she agrees to incubate a child for Hillary Goettler (her boss) and Hillary's husband. Trudy moves into their mansion and is instantly thrust into a luxurious world she's never known before. While Hillary opines that parenthood is simply a "time-management problem" Trudy is forced to consume noxiously healthy meals in a home where the decor changes faster than a Neiman Marcus window display. As her body warms to the other life inside, Trudy begins to long for her old flame, Sinclair Coker a freelance mystic with a lot of enthusiasm for the carnal. The quest to satisfy her cravings leads Trudy to discover that it takes a lot more than war stories about childbirth and potty training in order for a woman to qualify for true membership in the mommy club.
The book for me was a little slow pace, but it was a pretty good book.
