really liked it

Personally, I really liked the essays in this book. Yes, some of them were not to my taste, but for the most part, I felt like I identified with some part of all of them. Then again, I'm in that space right now, trying to figure out what it means to me to be a wife, and what it will mean to me to be a mother. It's probably not something most men would find interesting, it's definitely gender specific. It helped me feel less... alone... reading other women working through some of the same issues I currently am. It helped me to hear someone else insist that marriage and babies are not always straight out of a fairy tale. Sometimes, it sucks and you're angry and the world will not end if you're a "bitch."
