it was amazing
Read in June, 2012

I loved this book! I would warn that it's a somewhat transgressive view of motherhood and pregnancy, and it's not for everyone. The MC, Sonia, behaves badly. Very badly. The sort of behavior that had me alternating between moaning and laughing out loud. NINE MONTHS has some important things to say as well, about the conflicts between women's roles and women's creative ambitions, even as it to some degree affirms the fundamental creativity of creating life and giving birth.

If you're the sort of person who would be offended by a fictional portrayal of a pregnant woman doing everything the "mommy blogs" say she should not -- don't read this. If you want to read an insightful, well-written and very funny book about a creative woman trying to come to grips with her own life, this book's for you.
