it was ok
bookshelves: pregnancy, memoir, parenting

The title warned me that Askowitz is miserable and lonely, but I also found her unlikeable. Maybe because I was implicated in myriad of things and people she criticizes in the book, maybe because there's so little redeeming about her experience, the journal format doesn't go deep enough for me to feel like I really know or care about any of the characters, and it's exhausting to listen to this much whining. It's not that I expect everyone to love being pregnant but I want to be able to sympathize with the misery and loneliness versus feeling like they're a gimmick to sell a book.
