126. "The Zygote Chronicles" ~ Suzanne Finnamore


To the uninitiated (or the alumni), a week by week analysis of a pregnancy may seem a bit ho-hum. We are all much more fascinated by the creation aspect.
However, Finnamore's narrator is a cross between a chipper Katie Couric and a, well, navy-toned, serious Katie Couric of the Nightly News.
Sample of her monologue with her unborn child:

The question 'Who am I?' seems pertinent, althought I must say you are doing a much better job with my diet and life than I have done in the past. However, I feel you have some control issues that we may need to confront at a later time.
Breezy novel about birthin' and babies.
3.0 out of 5.0 Test Tube Babies.
