Excellent book about good vs. evil with lots of other conflicts. Weldon writes about these things with such wit that I laughed out loud more than once. Nothing is left hanging at the end, and I like that. The ending had a very unexpected twist for me, but you'll have to read it to see if you're surprised too. Read this and any other Weldon book you can get your hands on. She never disappoints.
One of my favourite Weldon books. I can never work out if she is feminist or anti-feminist, her novels always seem to work both ways! Full of wonderful characters and wicked observations. Loved it.
A must read. I recently re-read it by mistake, hoping the things Weldon told me about women were no longer true. But I'm sorry, this book never grows old.
I found no humor in this book at all. Rather, I found it a 38-week quagmire of confusion, mixed emotions, relationship dysfunction, child abuse, infidelity and far too bizarre examples of humanity. Clearly, the "baby" was in control and the life force was going to win out over all attempts to squelch it through externally bad choices and decision-making. The fulfillment of a woman's life is not limited to enduring nine months of agony to produce an object with - according to this story - little value except for it's biological instinct to survive. I must have missed a really big message here, but I hung in to the end hoping to find it, despite the futility of the journey. I would not recommend this book for any woman contemplating her first pregnancy.
I don't understand why nobody has written a review for this one yet. I read it years ago and still feel it's one of Weldon's best novels. It's a must for every pregnant women - as the hilarious story centers around a pregnancy. And it's certainly equally important for every woman considering this step! Containing about as many chapters as a pregnancy has weeks, the novel is simultaneously funny, fast-paced, quirky and oh so true. Weldon's prose was never more hard-hitting, albeit the fairy-tale-like setting.

Give it a try, you'll like it.
