Equal parts wryly analytical and wholeheartedly emotional. first work of nonfiction, Making Babies is a collection of short essays, some of them stream of consciousness, that move chronologically through the landmarks of motherhood. She writes with brutal candor and irreverence about the things that the feel-good baby books don’t tell yo. Moira Hodgson, Wall Street Journal.

Now, in Making Babies, Enright offers a new kind of memoir: an unapologetic look at the very personal experience of becoming a mother. With a refreshing no-nonsense attitude, Enright opens up about the birth and first two years of her children’s lives. Enright was married for eighteen years before she and her husband Martin, a playwright, decided to have children. Already a confident, successful writer, Enright continued to work in her native Ireland after each of her two babies was born

In Making Babies, Anne Enright confesses to the real trauma of motherhood

In Making Babies, Anne Enright confesses to the real trauma of motherhood. I suspect novelist Anne Enright would argue that all this phoney intelligence of minor skirmishes brought back from the front line merely serves to distract our attention from the main theatre of war; a place where established identities are being ripped apart, bodies violently altered and relationships put under a potentially fatal strain. Enright's autobiographical book about the shocks and rewards of motherhood accepts as a basic premise that getting pregnant and going through labour is a scary, odd thing.

Book by Anne Enright. Of all the books that pregnant women have by their bed, surely none are as engaging, terrifying or reassuring as Making Babies. Irish author Enright recounts her experiences having two children with humour and candour. Upon first seeing her unborn daughter on the ultrasound, Enright says, It looks a bit disgusting. She is stunned by how terrible she feels, and how others consider this a commendable sacrifice rather than unfortunate circumstance. During prenatal class, Enright realizes there is a fundamental problem here, of design

Anne Enright, one of Ireland's most remarkable writers, has just had two babies: a girl and a boy. Her new book, "Making Babies", is the intimate, engaging, and very funny record of the journey from early pregnancy to age two. Written in dispatches, typed with a sleeping baby in the room, it has the rush of good news - full of the mess, the glory, and the raw shock of it all. An antidote to the high-minded, polemical 'How-to' baby manuals, "Making Babies" also bears a visceral and dreamlike witness to the first years of parenthood. Anne Enright wrote the truth of it as it happened, because, for these months and years, it is impossible for a woman to lie.

I really love this book. It's funny--especially if you like a dry wit. And it's very, very precise and true. I found it to be a great companion after the birth of my daughter. If you are looking for a how-to or a fuzzy-wuzzy, it might not be right for you. But if you are looking for a take on motherhood that is like being in the car on a road trip with your smartest friend, dishing and laughing, this is your book.

I guess I just wasn't prepared to relive day by day what it was like to have a baby. I already knew this.

Ooh, I love everything Anne writes. She is my writing hero! And though my three kids are raised and even my eldest grandchild has reached twenty -one, MAKING BABIES brought me right back to the multi-faceted emotions of those days. Both her humor and bite are always spot-on!

I didn't read many "pregnancy" or "parenting" books whilst pregnant or since my child was born but one I did read was this book, which was a lovely, light-hearted, funny insight into parenthood and made a nice change from the other "instruction manuals" out there!

This book was good-just not as good as I had expected based upon reviews I had gotten from others. I kind of thought I would be laughing out loud, but I really wasn't. I'm not sure what exactly I didn't like about this (which makes my review the worst in the world), but it just fell flat with me...

Just wanted to put my opinion out there in case someone else had very high expectations for this book.

This book started off great, so funny and true! I was really enjoying it and then the editor must have decided to stop working. Anne seemed to write about everything that crossed her mind whether it was relevant to the previous thought or not. At about page 125 I started to read faster, skipping over whole sentances just trying to finish (I am no quitter). It went from funny and heartwarming to rambling and confusing and a little depressing. The chapters got longer with less flow. I would not recommend this book and I would recommend an immediate firing of the editor.
It boggles my mind that this author won the Man Booker prize. My only explanation for this terrible book is that her editor suggested she write this as an easy way to capitalize on her fame and sell a few books (I certainly was a sucker). It is cliched, unfunny and incredibly self-indulgent. I've seen better efforts from Mom Bloggers. I stopped reading about half way through and deleted it from my Kindle. I don't usually pan books because, as a writer myself, I know how hard it is, but I can't help but think that the author just dialed this one in to make a little extra cash off her fans.
