I have read this book off and on in the years since its publication. While I'm astonished at the fact that Ms. Chesler had FOUR abortions before she gave birth to her son Ariel (was she ignorant of the fact that birth control was available?), it was very interesting to read her day-to-day diary of her thoughts and experiences with family and friends, especially with her own mother about whom she goes from highly critical to almost worshipful, as her pregnancy progressed. Her dialogue with her unborn child is sweet and very personal. She had a tough time after Ariel's birth; it certainly made me feel privileged to have been able to stay home and raise my children....and I did not go insane! Anyway, it's an interesting read and I would recommend it. I wonder what Ms. Chesler thinks of the way her own daughter-in-law is raising her and her son's child. Maybe a follow-up book, "With Grandchild"?
