Synopsis

Baby Proof

Emily Griffin

An audio novel that explores the question: Is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?

Claudia Parr has everything going for her. A successful editor at a publishing house in Manhattan, she's also a devoted sister, aunt, and friend. Yet she's never wanted to become a mother--which she discovers is a major hurdle to marriage, something she desperately wants. Then she meets her soul mate Ben who, miraculously, feels the same way about parenthood. The two fall in love and marry, committed to one another and their life of adventure and discovery. All's well until one of them has a change of heart. Someone wants a baby after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things and there is no compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life and wagering everything to get it. And most of all, it's about the things we will--and won't--do for love.

About the Author

American author, Emily Giffin, was born in the town of Naperville, Illinois, where she had an all-American life attending Naperville North High School. She had an interest in writing even back then. Giffin served as editor-in-chief of the school's newspaper. She received her degrees from Wake Forest and University of Virginia. She worked in litigation in Manhattan after she earned her law degree.

Writing was always the dream for Giffin. She worked as a lawyer to make a living and to pay off school loans. In her limited spare time, she worked on a manuscript, but when presented, it was rejected. Giffin was persistent though, moving to London and retiring from law to work full time on her writing. In London, she began her first well received novel, Something Borrowed, and thus began her accomplished writing career.

Critics loved her work, even comparing her to a modern day Jane Austin, and praised her story-telling skills. Her other works include: Something Blue; Baby Proof; Love the One You're With; Heart of the Matter; Where We Belong; The One and Only; First Comes Love; and All I Ever Wanted. Her books have been well received world-wide and translated into many languages. She and her family now reside in Atlanta.

I rented this with a few misgivings after reading the review in Audio File. Unfortunately, Audio File was too kind. The book is totally predictable and an example of the chic lit genre at its worst. It is memorable however for Cynthia Nixon's excellent narration. She manages several voices with ease and yet she does not seem to be jumping up and down yelling 'look at me, I'm doing different voices' which some readers can do.

This isn't the best Emily Giffin book out there (Something Borrowed and Something Blue are much better), but it's still an enjoyable read. This will strike a chord with all professional women out there that are apprehensive about the idea of having a baby. I had so much anxiety while reading this book that I had to flip to the end to see what happens (trust me, I never do this). But overall a good book, but didn't find the same connection with the characters as her other books.
