Take an inside look at the life of a foetus from conception to birth in The Absurd Secret Diary Of An Unborn Baby by David N. Bending.

The book is presented as a daily journal of an unborn's experiences in his mother's womb. Our unnamed hero began as the product of his mother's drunken holiday fling with an intoxicated Scottish tourist. Unfortunately for the baby inside her, Sally Summers had no intention on quitting or even minimizing her alcohol intake. Meanwhile, at eight weeks, and despite a body size of less than an inch and a half, this little person would experience his first love. Dara Doo, the unborn daughter of one of Sally's friends, serves as love interest for the next 30 weeks or so.

Author David N. Bending has incorporated an ingenious touch to the book. The foetuses are aware of the outside world and can communicate with other unborns. The gestating offspring of many of Sally's friends and acquaintances become a network of friends for our hero and his true love, Dara. Each is named for their traits. There are the identical twins Zilli and Zalli, Pompous Twit, Blubber, and New Kid to name a few. The different personalities interact and clash as the story unfolds.

While most expectant moms are improving their diet, beginning maternity vitamins and perhaps starting a fitness programme of light exercise, our hero's mom is consuming equal parts vodka, gin, and tobacco. Her routine of dangerous driving, partying, clubbing, and believe it or not, skydiving, is not altered. Along with the effects of his mother's dangerous addicted lifestyle, our hero must also deal with devious New Kid setting his sights on Dara's affection.
"Mother forgot to buy the frisky fried, chicken crisps I like...What do I get? Vodka on the rocks via the umbilical!
