Read full description of the books Babies in Waiting:March 2012 - not yet bought this but think I ought. Ok it's chick-lit but my baby is due in September (like these characters so it kind of feels worth reading, if only for that reason!)
March 2012 - My mum bought me this as a Mother's Day present (well I am a mother-to-be!)...
April 2012 - Took this away with me to read on our Babymoon in Spain.
This is British chick-lit and I suspect it would appeal most to women who are either pregnant or have been pregnant. A lot of the references are very relevant to me in my current situation.
I found certain aspects of the story predictable but I thought the three characters were relevant enough. Each had their "issues" with their pregnancy - one being a young but posh mother, another being mid-20s, happily married but finding her eggs were getting passed their sell-by date, and the last being late 30s and pregnant by accident. I could sympathise with different aspects of the individual characters. There were part of the story that made me laugh, parts that made me cringe, and parts that made me go "oh yes, agree with that."
I don't know on what basis the author wrote this story but I suspect there might have been some influence from www.mumsnet.com (a British website with forums, popular for discussing everything pregnancy and family related. The fact there was a September births group made me smile - I joined the similar group in real life!)
Overall I enjoyed the story - I'm not a massive fan of chick-lit so whilst I liked it I didn't love it. I'd be interested in a sequel though to see how the characters might develop and faces the challenges of toddlers and pre-schoolers.
