I would avoid this book. Read something better...Tony Morrison's "Beloved" perhaps.
*** Even if you do not have a baby, a lot of what Lara says makes perfect sense. Reading this will NOT give you any desire to become a mother, and in fact may discourage you from it. However, it is a fun book, peppered with cultural references that make Lara seem like someone you might know. ***
I know I have had struggles with that as I have been adapting into my Mom role. The end of the book has some discussion/ interview with the author and she brings up an interesting point about motherhood and how it has affected some members of this particular generation. That more of us have lives before we become moms (esp if we have kids in 30s and 40s) and that we need to realize that although we may love having a child, we need to acknowledge that we mourn for our past lives. In previous generations, she notes, many women went from being a member of one household/ family (daughter) and into another (wife. mother) without having the "single" or "married without kids" life.
