Publisher's Summary

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes...a baby carriage? Isn’t that what all women want? Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It’s about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was - and that there is no possible compromise. It’s about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about the things we will do - and won’t do - for love.

    "Try the version read by Cynthia Nixon"

    Characters seem overly trite and shallow due to the flat affect of the narrator. I'd like to hear the abridged version read by Cynthia Nixon because I have been a fan of Giffin's "Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" as well as the audio version of "Heart of the Matter" read by Cynthia Nixon. Normally I prefer Unabridged audio books to abridged, but Cynthia Nixon is a talented actor and I bet it makes a big difference.

    Story
    "Mediocre"

    I've liked others by this author much better. The over analysis of every single aspect of how this character is feeling about having a baby is exhausting. It's similar to disecting minute details with best friends but this character isn't your friend so you don't care as much....

    "Least fav of all her books, but still ok."

    Story was just not as good as her others, but it is not something you want to skip over.

    Story
    "Unlike me but had to stop listening"

    The reader's voice grated on my nerves........the story skipped around too much and did not make much sense. I LOVE my audio books so it is highly unusual for me to actually stop listening to one without finishing it but that is exactly what I did with this one. The cover of the book says narrated by Cynthia Nixon....NOT!!! She narrated Hear of the Matter and I loved it, this reader was awful!

    "Not my favorite, but still very good"

    I chose this book because I read "Something Borrowed" and liked the idea of the plot because I was in a similar situation to the main character. The book was good and brought up a few points about conflicting child-having views that I had never thought about before.

    "Loved it!"

    I enjoyed the story very much. I wish that the ending would have given a more longer term finish? But I liked the story anyway

    "Love."

    I love all of Emily Giffin's books. So glad they are on audible. My only confusion is that the audible book cover says it is narrated by Cynthia Nixon- but the book starts and ends by telling you it was narrated by someone else? Although the girl reading it sounded like Cynthia Nixon? Who knows. Get the book anyway. :)

    What disappointed you about Baby Proof?

    I didn't finish this book, I love Giffin normally but this one just couldn't keep my attention.


    What was most disappointing about Emily Giffin’s story?

    The story was really slow.


    What three words best describe Christine Marshall’s voice?

    I thought she was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Emily Giffin's writing is normally great. I will continue to buy her books, this one just wasn't for me.

    This book was exactly the type of book I was looking for and right on par with her other novels. I would definitely read this book again.

    "Brilliantly written."

    I really enjoyed Baby Proof. Fun and exciting, easy read/listen with a lovely ending. The characters are all so loveable and i could relate to them all in one way or another, especially the main character Claudia.
    I can't wait to listen to more books by Emily Giffin.
