Knocked Up: Confessions of a Hip Mother-to-be by Rebecca Eckler
rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was like a pregnancy: It dragged on and on and then suddenly it was over. I'm torn between loving the book and hating it. There was a lot that I related to - guilt about not quitting smoking, crazy obsessions, and the mysterious body parts poking me from the inside (no, really, how do you know if that's a foot, an elbow or a third arm?) - and there was a lot that I found utterly ridiculous. In some ways, the author reminded me of Sophie Kinsella's 'Shopaholic' character: ridiculous and petty.
