    It was great until a new 'chapter' started....

    The author gets you hooked on one particular women only to end 'her' chapter and move on to the next women. I did not feel as if the story of that women was complete yet. It was a huge let down. All in all, I have mixed feelings. While I was reading and getting to love the characters, the book was fantastic and I could not put it down, however when a new chapter started it only left me angry.

    a slower read..

    I read Jennifer Weiner's "Little Earthquakes" and I was hoping this book would be the same. Sadly, it's not. It's a much slower read, and I had a hard time really getting into it. I actually skipped pages and some chapters so I can get on with the story. As from a lot of the reviews here, I could sympathize with the character 'julia'. She is a perfectionist. All she knows how it do is succeed, and it's hard for a lot of people to realize that. She just wants to feel needed and loved, and praised for working so hard.

    It's an okay book, but nothing that will stay in my head, like others.

    This book was a nice, easy read. Most of the plot was pretty predictable but it was a fun read and perfect for the summer. This book won't change your life, but it is a good distraction!

    Enjoyable Chick Lit

    I listened to this book on a recent trip. Once the story got going, I enjoyed it. I would have enjoyed it more if each story didn't just come to a sudden hault until the last chapter of the book. The women's stories could have been a little more woven. This is the first Jane Grren book I have read, but I don't think it will be the last.

    Surprisingly entertaining...

    Well, I just finished listening to the audiobook last night, and I actually really liked it. I have to admit that the thought of listening to a story about babies and motherhood was not my idea of a good time, but each time I turned on my car I was so excited to hear what happened next. The story is more than just about babies and mommies-to-be, there were romanctic elements, sex scenes, a few entertaining twists and much more.

    Easy to put down and forget about

    I only liked a handful of parts of this book. Sam had to be my favorite. Her obessing about a married man was too funny. All to get disgraced in the end. My jaw dropped. Other then that it was so unbelieveable and pretty much boring.

    Disappointing

    I've read and enjoyed all of Jane Green's books, but this one is my least favorite and the only one that I finished just because I hoped it would get better. I found some of the characters uninteresting, and their section of the book seemed to drag. Judging by the other reviews, I am in the minority, so give it a try if you are a Jane Green fan.

    Not as good as her other books

    I just finished Babyville, and felt like it wasn't as fun as Jemima J or Jane Green's other novels. Very cute, but I couldn't wait to finish it, and normally I want to take my time with her books. A little disappointing.
