This was the first fiction novel I’ve listened to on my Audible account and far out - it was a pleasure to listen to. I loved the story, the characters and the narrator did an incredible job. It’s actually quite hard to fully let the characters go!

An extraordinary book!

This memoir is incredibly powerful and moving. I am not actually sure I will look at life the same after reading Sarah's beautifully written words of Sandra's story. Highly recommend.

I tried. I make it about 7 minutes into chapter 3 but it couldn’t take it anymore. Her reading voice was painfully slow - like we were all a bit simple - and self-indulgent. When she started talking about us all being miracles, I gave up. Her story felt exaggerated for the sake of it, and it didn’t feel quite genuine nor all that interesting. I was so excited to get this one, but sadly now all I feel is regret.

Would you listen to The Art of Babymaking again? Why?

I loved listening to this book. It was incredibly interesting and dispersed throughout were several stories that provided food for thought. Fertility, or rather infertility, can be a rather emotive topic and I like that this provided a balanced viewpoint based around a particular modality.

What other book might you compare The Art of Babymaking to, and why?

N/A

What does Mark Meadows bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He brought a real sense of human-ness (is this even a word? to the information being presented.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend for those looking at fertility not just as a physical issue but also a mind/body one.
