Review: Baby Proof
By Emily Giffin
Genre Adult Chick Lit
Claudia has never wanted children. It just isn't in her future, but finding a man who agrees? Not so easy. When Claudia meets Ben he's her perfect match for a million reasons including his desire for a childless marriage. But when one of them suddenly changes their mind years into the marriage will their love survive?
I never wanted to be a mother.
Emily Giffin's books are so addicting. They're really quite silly for books that deal with serious issues and I often find her characters doing unrealistic things but I can't help myself.
Baby Proof was just as addicting as her other books. I read it in two sittings. It was a hard book to read for me because of personal reasons. (If you know what I mean) However, I still gulped it up.
My absolute favorite thing about this book was the relationship between Claudia and her sisters. I loved how they all had completely different desires and lives but stayed close and just loved each other. I wish I was as close to my sisters as Claudia was to hers. I also loved her friendship with Jess. The relationships in the book was what kept me reading.
The actions that were taken so brashly by main characters were a bit unbelievable to me. I guess if it hadn't happened that way there wouldn't have been much of a story but I still found it completely unrealistic.
I liked the ending too. It was wrapped up quite nicely but minus the bow. So it wasn't too neat.
Should you read it?
I'd recommend this one over some of her others for sure.
