This book drew me in from the first chapter... I really enjoyed it! I don't have kids, so I don't agree that you need to in order to love this book. The characters are loveable, flaws and all and J.W. manages to develop their characters and lives without going overboard and making you feel bogged down in the details.

Really enjoyed this book. Just getting back into reading now that my kids are 2 and 4 years old and I could relate to so much in these stories. Never lost focus or interest and was sorry when it ended!

Not what I expected, but very good. The book has little twists and turns in the plot and it was hard to put down. Not Chick Lit where every one is single and dating, but more grown up. These are smart married women dealing with love, sex, and child birth and babies. Plus jobs, losses and life. Something that really spoke to me, as I am beyond the "sex in the city" life style and this book is like that too.

I loved this book. I read in two days. My sister-in-law read it right after I did and she finished it in two days as well. Could not put it down. Definetly two thumbs up from me on this one! I actually wished it was longer. I'm not a mother and I still loved the book.

Wonderful! A really honest, funny story about unlikely girlfriends and their husbands and families. Characters are easy to relate to and sweep you along with them. I absolutely recommend this book!

This was a fun and curiously fascinating book. I guess you would have to be a mother to really, really appreciate it but even if your not it gives you a whole different view of mom's and motherhood and being a parent.

Excellent read!!! Laugh out loud hilarious, but also touching and at times, heartbreaking. Jennifer Weiner is a truly talented writer. Any woman who's had children can absolutely relate, and any other woman who hasn't yet should definitely read this before you do!!! :)

I think this is a really cute book. It was a my first book I read after my baby was born so I could relate to some. It's kinda like a PG rated Sex in the City, about 4 women and friendship and life. A good read!
