I'd like to know if this is true! I bought this book and read it in two days. This is a huge deal for me, as I have 3 kids, 2 dogs and a husband to mind over. I laughed, I cried but most important, I felt so connected to Sasha and her plight. I was her biggest cheerleader. I'm not sure what else this author has written, but I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I picked up this book for a plane flight to New York and finished it way before we even landed. I was cracking up on the plane and I swear people were looking at me funny. I could totally relate to the characters in this book. I kept trying to put myself in the lead character's position. I don't think that lazy sperm is a real condition. It better not be. Take this novel on your next flight. You won't be sorry.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

There is so much to love about this book. It is witty, clever, well written and surprisingly touching. The actual concept is hilarious, which is why I bought the book, but then the story just pulls you right in. A terrific read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In Los Angeles, twenty-seven years old Sasha Salter already is the executive director of an Emmy Award winning popular children's television show, Please Pass the Salter, based on her thesis that children learn when they are amused. Everything seems to be going her way until her gynecologist Dr. Banks informs her she is pregnant. The only problem with that diagnosis is that Sasha has not had sex in over two years. --- Though he has doubts about her honesty and abstinence, Dr. Banks sends Sasha to UCLA researcher Dr. Rusmeuth. He explains he is an expert on male fertility and mentions the condition Lazicum spermatozoa, ¿lazy sperm¿ that remains dormant while relaxing in a comfortable biological home until the sperm finally decides to fertilize her egg. Sasha wonders who the father is as she considers lazy sperm, lazy bum with her two best friends providing her with emotional support. --- Though Sasha has to be the calmest person on the planet, SWIMMING UPSTREAM, SLOWLY is a solid contemporary fiction starring a likable protagonist caught in what seems the impossible, but the ambitious unscrupulous Dr. Rusmeuth (seizes the opportunity with the celeb) makes it appear viable. Readers will enjoy traveling with Sasha as she goes back over her sexual encounters in an attempt to discover whose sperm hibernated inside her body. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
