    Hi Girls

    I downloaded onto my Kindle Jodi Picoult's book Sing You Home and I cannot put it down. Whilst the issues go far wider than IVF the book is riviating about the male perspective of infertility and what men go through as well as us. I would throughly recommend this book to anyone who is TTC just to read Max's story.

    Enjoy

    I loved it from the perspective of Max, and what it does to a couple. I cannot stop reading it. I reckon I will do it within 2 days as well. Glad you enjoyed it too.

    I may put it on hold for a little bit as in my current frame of mind I am trying to avoid anything "sad" .... As I say I do like Jodi Picoult but she is hardly uplifting is she? :)

    I will add it to my "must read" list though!

    Thanks

    Just ordered this book - I find a good cry is just the medicine sometimes (every other day at the moment!)

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I read her book handle with care a few months ago, it was quite harrowing, anyone else read that one? I think I will order this one gizzy. It sounds like the type of book I would like, esp hearing it from the man's point of view Xxx

    It's about a woman whos best friend is her midwife/obgyn type doc. When her baby is born it turns out she has a condition that means her bones break really easily and will never have a normal life. So she sues her best friend because it could have been detected at the scan and her argument is that if she had known then she would have aborted the baby :-( very emotional book Xxx

    Yep - My Sisters Keeper was the first Jodi Picoult book I read. So sad....

    To be honest her endings are always a bit of a let down (even MSK was a little bit of a let down) it's like she losses interest in her plot and characters towards the end :shock:

    But still most of her books are worth a read ......
