Lucy is not exempt from the bad choices club either. After the baby is born and her husband is flaunting his young girl friend in front of her, she decides she is feeling so deprived of sex that she goes out and picks up a virtual stranger and has sex with him in the car while it is going through the car wash. Seriously? You are breast feeding a two month old baby and you pick up someone who could very likely have diseases and have unprotected sex with him? What are you thinking? Amazingly enough, the sordid interlude leaves her feeling dirty and used. Duh.
Add to all this, as if this isn't enough, a mother who dabbles in every new age, metaphysical, self-help, idiocy she can find, AND a cousin who dumps her fiancé and then decides to MARRY HERSELF (literally) in a great, big, fat, family wedding!
Jane Austin is spinning in her grave.
While she battles a plethora of complications and illnesses her husband is off having a good time dating. After the baby is born and she is sleepless, in pain, and well, just plain new mom overwhelmed he is having a good time sleeping with his girlfriend in their house. This type of co parenting is better for the kid than divorce? Wow. I found the plot a stretch and really rolled my eyes at Lucy's "quickie" experience.
The whole breast feeding, sore nipple stuff was too much. Pages and pages of it, like this was the only stressful, hard, interesting part of dealing with this baby. I was ready for a chapter on colic just so I wouldn't have to hear anymore about her nipples.
The ending let me down. As hard as the rest of it had been for Lucy, if just seemed to resolve itself too easily. The humor I expected from reading the synopsis and other reviews was just not there. After the first couple of chapters the humor parts dwindled down to near nothing.
The supporting characters veered between heartwarming and fun---I'd rather have read a whole book on Rita and Bernice--all the way to shallow and bizarre, Anjoli and Kimmy ended up caricatures in the attempt to show how different Lucy was from them.
There were some formatting errors that were distracting and annoying. Words were broken up causing minor confusion and spacing was missing quite often in dialogue. This second problem was both more prevalent and more annoying as it made it harder to track who was talking.
a strange idea of living with with your husband when he and his girlfriend had fun in the bedroom and the poor baby was almost an afterthought. I felt a lack of genuine emotion from anyone in the book and felt they all should have been shown the door. I have read books like this before and there was emotion and sadness and a coming together again with true love a commitment. Not my cup of coffee. I expect more depth and character development. It seem as if this a book of one dimension all the way around.
