    1. I loved Giffin's first two books, Something Borrowed and Something Blue, so I had high hopes for this book. Instead I was left with a resentful disappointment.Firstly, why is it that novels set in NYC have to be gushing odes to the city? This book name drops worse than a D-lister trying to get into a hot Hollywood club. Restaurants, street names, the Brooklyn Bridge - there's even a paragraph devoted to the skyline post-9/11. WE GET IT. THE BOOK IS SET IN NEW YORK.The plot is ludicrous, formulai [...]

    2. I have mixed feelings about this book. I had picked this up as the third novel by Ms. Giffin, having already read her first two ( Something Borrowed,Something Blue). All the characters in her books seem to be somewhat interrelated, and the back cover looked interesting, especially since I, like the heroine, am a thirty-something woman exceedingly tired of being asked when I will have children. Like Katherine Hepburn, I suspect I am just far too selfish to make a decent mother, and I think it sho [...]

    3. Ugh. It's very rare that I get this pissed off by a book, especially such random chick lit. This review contains spoilers, so don't read anymore if you ever plan to read this book.Ok, here goes:The story was about a NYC couple, Ben & Claudia, that are madly in love. They both agreed before marriage that they never want kids, but after a close friend had a baby, Ben changes his mind. It's out of the question for Claudia, and since neither will compromise, they promptly divorce. (and this was [...]

    4. I'm only a few pages in and I'm hooked. This woman is me, plain and simple. I'm sitting here wondering when Emily Griffin found the time to sit down and write a book all about me. I'm really hoping the main character doesn't sell out in the end to garner the mass-appeal of chick-lit readers. If she does, I might have to swear off Ms. Griffin for good. So far, though, she understands me, which lets me know that there are other women out there who feel exactly the way I do about the prospect of ha [...]

    5. Yet another Emily Giffin novel, and I think it was okay for the most part. The thing I HATE about Giffin as a writer is she makes a really interesting, difficult scenario that makes you sympathize with her characters, and then she can't think of how to solve the moral dilemma, so near the end of her books she pulls something COMPLETELY horrible, whether it's a cliché plot development or a seriously erroneous logical argument for making her characters change motives (an anti-feminist/anti-indivi [...]

    6. This book annoyed me. I couldn't figure out why at first, and then I realized it - I don't agree with the author's message. The protagonist spends the whole book trying to get over her ex-husband who left her because she didn't want children. In the end, they reconcile because while she still doesn't want children, she'd consider having them to be with her soulmate. I think that is a selfish notion - yes, it seems unselfish to procreate because you love your husband so much and that is what he w [...]

    7. Usually, I tend to shy away from books in the chick lit genre. When I saw "Baby Proof" on the shelf, I was instantly drawn to this book for some reason. After reading the book jacket, I knew this was definitely going to be an interesting read to say the least. Claudia and Ben are the perfect couple least to everyone around them anyway. Claudia is a successful book editor and Ben is a successful architect who are both enjoying their married childfree life. Although they both agreed in the dating [...]

    8. D This book reminded me of why I don't like chick lit -- unrealistic expensive Manhattan lifestyles obsession with finding love partner. Anyway, this seemed more promising -- a woman finds a man who also doesn't want kids (yay! Perfect for me--like T!) and then he changes his mind, and the whole drama. An ending to gag over.

    9. Este libro está escrito para mí. Es como si alguien dijera voy a escribir la vida de Brenda en unos 15 años en el futuroPodia reconocerme en muchas de las facetas de la protagonista, daba miedo ENCANTA que se haya tocado un tema que casi nadie toca. Que es el simple hecho de no querer tener hijos, NUNCA. Con esta sociedad machista, si una mujer no tiene un hijo no tiene nada.La gente piensa que es antinatural. Porque "claro" una mujer para que esta hecha no? Incluso he escuchado a gente muy c [...]

    10. It's quite a brave topic to tackle - women who don't want children. In this day and age, I think it's almost the last taboo. But it is the topic that author Emily Giffin addresses in "Baby Proof". Knowing that the story would focus on this issue, I worried it would end up being black and white with a watered down and easily digestible ending but Emily Giffin kept to her usual high standard as I read my way through a messy, emotional, complicated and realistic story.Despite such a sensitive and e [...]

    11. Giffin's writing style and subject matter was what enticed me to listen to this book on CD. I listened to "Something Borrowed" on a weekend car trip and it was so good it felt like a guilty pleasure. Self-indulging in female mellow drama seems to be my thing. This book did not disappoint, it exceeded my expectations. The subject matter hit a bit closer to home than Giffin's 1'st book. Now that I'm closing out my 20's and have a husband and a house, I'm constantly surrounded by baby talk. It was [...]

    12. The plot is completely unbelievable - are we supposed to believe the so called perfect couple gets divorced after what seems to be about 2 weeks of arguing about having a baby? Then is it possible that most of the people around the wife are having child issues (kids keeping someone in a bad marriage, not being able to conceive, conceiving with a married boyfriend) at the same time? It's insulting to the readers intelligence and that is what makes it the perfect beach read. If that is what you're [...]

    13. As I've read and enjoyed each of Emily Giffin's other books, I fully expected to enjoy this book. It was definitely not the case. Most of Giffin's characters are smart, educated, professional women; they are also strong - in that they don't necessarily fall full-force into a stereotypical "I'll compromise my goals and ideals in order to keep a man." In fact, even though her protagonist in "Heart of the Matter" decides to take her cheating husband back, Giffin still manages to paint the wronged w [...]

    14. From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?Women who don't want children? Are they monsters? That's how society makes us feel if you don't want babies. I was like that for awhile slightly still am (I rather have dogs than babies) so maybe that's why I enjoyed this book, because I was able to relate to the main character. However, I gave it four stars because Claudia anno [...]

    15. the end was kinda abrupt BUT this has to be one of the first book that I've read were the main character doesn't want a child and we are shown how that decision affects not only her life, but her husband's and their family.I loved it. I don't want children either and I could totally relate to Claudia.(which is funny, because everyone is saying she is spoiled selfish and whiny and yet I thought she was like my missing sister lol)

    16. I loved the first two Emily Griffins I read --and-- but this is by far my favorite. I am a book crier, this is true, but when I was tearing up a few chapters in, I thought, "Dang! She's good!" The novel is very realistic, and there were moments when I laughed to myself, "That is so true! I wish someone had told me that BEFORE I got married!" This really captures the emotions and desperation of that awkward stage that happens the first time you seriously realize -- as in the first time your partn [...]

    17. I read this book because I had heard about it from my baby boards. I did not read Giffin's other 2 books. I was pregnant at the time and wanted a funny and light read. I didn't like it much. I thought it was extremely shallow and I found it strange that the characters go from having a great marriage to divorce. It makes it sound like divorce is a quick,easy answer when you don't get your way. I thought the ending was too sugary sweet and fake.

    18. RTC check out latest update for end of book feelings. I think I'm going to eviscerate this book.Warning, I'm probably going to tear this book up. I dunno. It's not that I didn't like it, exactly. It's that I didn't like Claudia and as a main character she was very unlikable. So I might rant. A lot.Let me get out my notes that I wrote right after I finished this book.Alright here we go. I'm sorry but I have to say it. This author can't write. At least not in a way I appreciate. The way the book i [...]

    19. Another complex, well-characterized novel from Emily Giffin. It's as good as the first two books of hers that I read, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. I love how Giffin goes straight for the moral gray area, presenting characters who face some of the most difficult personal-choice dilemmas of our modern age -- situations ripe for strong opinions and discussion. I always find myself identifying with the protagonist and asking, "What would I do I were in her situation?" or, "If I were her be [...]

    20. I loved Emily's first 2 books, but I had a hard time with this one. I think I was having a hard time with the main character. I didn't sympathize with her at all and was actually rooting for the husband more than her.

    21. Emily Giffin has the literary capacity to create the most aggravating, unlikable characters in all of chick-lit that I positively can't stand and yet somehow by the end of the novel I am empathising with and rooting for every single one. She gets me every time and quite frankly I'm sick of your shit, Giffin!I'm going to come right out and say it: people who say they don't want children astound me. I'm not sure what it is. I don't even like children! So I struggled to grasp the concept of this bo [...]

    22. Meh. I listened to the audiobook of this one narrated by Cynthia Nixon, which was great. However, the story was boring. Literally nothing happened. A woman doesn't want a baby, gets married, her husband decides he does, gets divorced, kinda sees other people, gets back together with her ex. Mkay. And??? I wanted more turmoil in her life, there didn't really seem to be much. I didn't have any empathy for her. Just okay for me.

    23. Baby Proof is all about RelationshipsBaby Proof (2006) by Emily Giffin is about relationships and what it takes to be a part of one. Giffin answers or atleast raises some very important questions about life and relationships and family. It starts with a bang, directly divulging in the main issue of a married couple, earlier agreeing on no children, but has somehow come at a fork in the road, when Ben, the husband wants kids, and Claudia, one who wants to be responsible for herself and no one els [...]

    24. Because someone once told me that Emily Giffin’s books are formulaic, fluffy, and devoid of any real plot, I’ve avoided them. But I was looking for a light pick-me-up last week, found Baby Proof at the library, and after being captivated from the very first page, I finished this book in 2 days flat.I don’t recall who told me to avoid Emily Giffin’s books, but whoever you are, you have bad taste in books! Anyway, this is the story of 35-year-old Claudia – a successful editor, a loyal si [...]

    25. Out of all the books Emily Giffin has written this one is my favorite. I can relate to it the most. I don't want children until I am in my very late twenties/early thirties. I am told constantly by women that I am selfish for this. Is it really THAT horrible that I want to finish traveling/enjoy my career/pay off car or owe less money on home before having a child? And besides, I want to be able to tell my children about my life experiences rather than not having any to draw on when said child i [...]
