    • I've been lamenting ever since I got married the lack of novels out there with married charcters. So much of "chick lit" is focused on single girls finding love in big cities but come on- there are other stories out there too. Marriage isn't easy, (and if I ever say it is, you have my permission here to punch me in the face), and it would be nice to read a book that pokes a little fun at the 'institution'. After all, not all girls nearing their thirties are unwed!Imagine my happiness when I stum [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book. I found the characters very easy to relate too, and I actually found that some of them reminded me of people I know. :0)The story Line was also great, because it dealt with very real situations. Pure pressures family can put on you, as well as differences in life style choices. It was refreshing to read a book that tackled Marriage and children from a different angle. The book was written by a Canadian so there where a lot of little Canadian references that I enjoyed. [...]


    • I wanted to read a light book with plenty of humor. Nothing complicated but with a decent plot and good characters. I borrowed this from the library and even though it was free, I feel like I want my money back.well, at least I want the time I spent on this book back. It started off ok but as I read further, I found myself caring less and less for the protagonist and the ending was so anti-climatic that I found myself saying, "Huh???" Nothing more frustrating than spending time with a book and g [...]


    • This book is not the usual chick lit. A happily married woman finds out she is pregnant and she and her husband don't want children. When she tells her husband they are hoping she has a miscarriage. In the meantime, their home is invaded with relatives needing a place to stay and that lightens things up a bit. I am surprised that I liked the book at all - I love children and this woman's anti-children stance is extreme. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is pro-life or leads a baby-centric [...]


    • Hated both the main characters - he was so petty and fussbudgety, she was passive-aggressive and mean. And then I hated every character that was introduced after that. Skipped to the end and discovered no growth for any of the characters (some of them even appeared to have become worse people by the time it was all said and done).And, for the record, I have no problem with what some people might see controversial about this book. I didn't like it because the people were so odious.


    • I should have known by the cover that this was going to be bad. It was frustratingly silly and I would have given it one star less should I have not read the last paragraph. The author's bravery made me almost glad I finished it and gave her an extra star. Overcooked, one dimensional characters and lack lustre plot.


    • It was only okay for me. Nothing I'm too crazy about. She's got this unbearable secret she feels is a burden she can't share with her husband and she wants to tell him but she's got all these crazy family members bunking in her house and it's all chaotic. It's funny and makes you grateful you're not her!!


    • This isn't the conventional after-the-honeymoon book. The narrator has a terrible secret that she can't seem to share with her husband. It is refreshing to know that not everyone needs the natural progression from marriage to kids.


    • On first glance this looks like it'll be funny since it's about a couple who has been married for a few months. But it wasn't good after all. I only read 30 pages and I wasn't impressed. It was a little boring.


    • I'm not even sure where this book came from, I found it when I was about to get in the bath and should have just given up when it was stressing me out. I didn't like the characters, the story seemed pointless, and the ending was completely ridiculous.


    • Wendy French missed the mark on this book according to me. Part of it was the subject matter. I guess it made me cringe a bit. I did like the characters and her style of writing. I just loved her book Full Of It and thought her other books would be like that one. Nope.


    • I liked this. It was quick, the characters were easy to like & somehow relate to.but the end. It left something to be desired. & NOT for the obvious reasonsor for a political or personal reason. It just all of a sudden ended and it was too complex to just well, end.



    • I didn't finish this book so what does that tell you it wasn't bad just not good enough to keep my attention. I gave it a shot though and read to the middle of it, no go.




    • Really like this author. She is so sharp and sharky. Read this book with an open mind the ending isn't the way most authors would have ended it.




    • I loved it. I enjoyed this book very much. The ending left me wondering, though, but I guess it's really up to the reader to decipher it. I want to read more of Wendy French books! Great read!
