- Author Ben Elton
Sam and Lucy are trying for a baby, and while she can’t think of anything but her desperate need to become a mother, Sam is busy ruining his career and starting a new one as a writer - writing about secrets Lucy would rather keep to herself.
Sam is really great, the kind of person I would like to talk to. Unfortunately, I don’t have fantastic amounts of sympathy for Lucy. She doesn’t seem to care much about Sam, with their childlessness engulfing their entire relationship. There’s only so many times I can read the word WHY before I lose patience. This probably says more about me than it does about the book though.
like the way it flicks between the two perspectives, although as I wasn’t particularly fond of Lucy, I very much preferred whenever Sam got to tell the story. It was good, but a little drawn out. A nice story with a happy(ish) ending.
