    Excellent audio narration on this one, a lovely story of four women told by different voices which was necessary, I think This was an entertaining read dealing with the on point topic of infertility In this instance, surrogacy.I was captivated throughout, this was an easy read Four women with very different backgrounds, intertwined Jules needs the money to help her father, she will donate her eggs Annie is a struggling young mother, she needs financial stability with a growing young family Annie will act as the surrogate She forms an instant bond with India, who is to be the mother, India is a woman whom Bettina cannot stand she is the daughter of India s husband, one of the richest men in the country What is India hiding Bettina is determined to uncover whatever is lurking behind India s perceived shady history The story brings these ladies together, all with rich and complex pasts, to a satisfying finale Highly recommended as an audio read, I was interested from the very be...

    Jennifer Weiner has a way with words there s no doubt about that She has an ease with the written word that carries the reader along easily, and is descriptive and funny.But.Having a way with words doesn t make for a great book, any than being a good actress makes a great movie There s so much to it I fear that JW is a one note writer, the way Goldie Hawn to carry on the actress metaphor is a one note actress No matter what movie Goldie is in, she s Goldie Contrast that to, say, Glenn Close or Meryl Streep, someone who disappears into the role and you see what I mean.So with this understanding, it s not contradictory for me to say that Then Came You was well written but it was still a lousy book.The writing was clear and descriptive, but the multi angle perspective just did not work Every woman, from Annie, the no college, decidedly middle class mom of two, to the uber upper class Bettina, to WASPy Jules, all sounded EXACTLY the same I often had to leaf back to the beginning of the chapter to see who was narrating.Also, without blowing the whole plot for those of you who are still going to read it the huge revelations about India s past were decidedly anticlimactic I thought we d learn that she had traded her child for crack, or had a few murders in her past Nah When the reveal came, it was do...

    I don t read chick lit It s just not my style I prefer science fiction, literary fiction and mystery thrillers Stories about women and relationships and emotions just isn t my style It s not that I don t like those elements in the books I read, I just don t want them to be the be all and end all of the story However, Jennifer Weiner has been making waves lately by analyzing the number of stories and reviews the New York Times runs about women authors vs male authors So, I thought I d give one of her books a shot to see what her writing is like.When I checke Then Came You out of the library, I expected to spend my reading time rolling my eyes and groaning The premise is such utter chick lit fodder However, I ended up getting sucked into the story from the first chapter I grew attached to the characters I was interested in their drama I usually hate drama Yes, it was sappy and cheesy and all those other things I expected However, I couldn t stop turning the pages and kept reading even ...

    Ok, so here s my thing As with every Jenifer Weiner book, this one is readable if you re stuck on an airplane, you ll keep reading this and it will be a perfectly fine way to pass the time but also as with every Jennifer Weiner book, this one is full of people you will never, ever meet or be able to relate to, and that bumps the annoying factor up by like, ten.The basic idea is a good one weave the stories of three women who come together to have baby the egg donor, the surrogate, and the intended mother The egg donor and surrogate mother storylines were well done and moderately thought provoking, but this whole book falls apart when it begins dicussing the intended mother Why when there are so many different ways to tell that side of the story that would be realistic and interesting would Weiner chose to profile a charecture of a woman who exists nowhere in reality It completel...

    Jennifer Weiner s, Then Came You just found itself a permanent spot on my Favorite Books bookcase I m not referring to my Ordinary Books bookcase that is in our guest bedroom I am talking about my office bookcase that holds all of my favorite novels Not just any book can find its way onto these shelves, but as soon as I started reading Weiner s Then Came You I realized there was something special about it.Then Came You takes place during current times Weiner tells her story from the point of view of 4 different women that at first glance have nothing in common Jules is a gorgeous blond, blue eyed Senior at Princeton On the outside it seems like she has the perfect life, however she is hiding a hurtful family secret Annie is a 24 year old wife and mother of two young boys As happy as she is with her life, she can t help but feel discontent with her current situation Running her household zaps her energy while the constant struggle for money makes her wish for things she and her family does not have Bettina is the daught...

    Pathetic women all having to do with babies It was doomed from the beginning I didn t like any of the women and found many aspects of the book unbelieveable and of course it was totally predictable.I was so looking forward to reading this book I love Jennifer Weiner and have read all of her books It could have been way better My biggest issue is the characters didn t match their descriptions Jules seemed like a freshmen in high school rather that a Princeton graduate Why was she hanging out in the mall, hiding from people when she was this tall, gorgeous, intelligent blond woman Annie seemed like an old, washed up ugly women wirh bad teeth but she was ony 22 and supposedly beautiful Why did she obey her husband when he told her to quit her job at Target when they were poor but then turn around and become a surrogate which he also disapproved of Wouldn t it have been easier to work at Target Bettina seemed liked a crotchedy, old spinster who had Daddy issues for marrying a 40 yr old woman despite him b...

    Then Came You is pretty much a soap opera in book form I don t know how else to describe this book It has all the drama llama riding in it that every typical old fashioned soap opera has I m not a big fan of soap operas but I do watch one or two episodes of these Very Famous here, anyways German Soap Operas when they re on and I catch them It s always the same There s drama and there s trying to deal with too many issues at once in one episode bulimia, drug abuse, unhealthy relationships, for example , which doesn t help the potrayal of them, when the authors are trying to juggle dealing with thousand frigging issues at ones Apart from that, I don t connect with nor care about any of the characters because of the over the top character traits most of them have and show Anyway, after I watch episodes of these soap operas, I don t feel like I ve entirely wasted my time after all, there is better stuff I could do but it s not like I would end up doing it but I just know that it wasn t necessary to watch it, if that makes sense Then Came You was totally okay at first It was slow paced, sure, but at some point, it got a Revenge esque vibe, which always makes 1 Revenge fan ...

    Possible Spoiler info was in the synopsis on the book I had, but apparently it is not on every copy I told the book club girls I wanted something light and fun, and they gave it to me.sort of It was an easy read, and it kept my attention It really wasn t what I thought it was going to be at all In the synopsis it tells you it is about a couple who have a surrogate and while the surrogate is pregnant the father dies This doesn t happen until the very end of the book There were just too many characters All of the characters were interesting enough, but we didn t get to know them as well as I would have liked I didn t like the Bettina character at all It seems like they tried to give her some redeeming qualities, but she was such a spoiled brat that even the little bit of good she did, did not make me like her an...

    Chick lit really isn t my thing But hey, this is the start of summer Reading is supposed to be light and fluffy, right Besides, my library is currently out of audio books I d like to listen to, and this one appeared on the shelves, so Then Came You is the story of four women None of these women are especially likable or relatable They all have daddy issues and they all have difficulty relating to other people in general and other women especially At the center of the story is India, a trophy wife and gold digger who is passing off her 43 years as 38 to her insanely rich older husband When they attempt to have a baby, they discover that she is infertile and turn to surrogacy to create their family Initially, India was my favorite She is flawed, and therefore so much likable and relatable than the other three women She has made mistakes in the past which, at the very least, makes her interesting However, towards the end of the novel we learn that her mistakes were the result of matters beyond her control and she really wasn t the screw up she was presented as That is a...

    I found this book rather flat, with a lot of cookie cutter characters The book is told from a number of perspectives, but none of the voices really come to life The whole thing really felt contrived, as if the author sa...
