From the back:

"Quinn Boothroyd, or Q to her friends, is a successful young English lawyer married to Tom and living in New York. Six months pregnant with her first child, she is thrown into chaos when her doctor tells her she must spend three months on bed rest.

But just because Q cannot leave the apartment, it doesn't mean the world stands still. Thanks to a constant stream of visitors, Q gradually finds herself re-examining her priorities - her marriage, relationships with family and friends, and her job, with some very surprising, funny and touching results..."

This was more touching than I expected. At first I found Q annoying, but she grew on me as she grew herself as a person :) I think anyone with a child can relate to at least some parts of the story. And I'm so very grateful I don't live in the US with its crazy working hours.

On a sidenote, I wonder why Jewish mothers are always portrayed either as loving and overbearing or as cold and distant (the latter is most often the case when the character in question of rich and upper-class).

This book´s cover caught my attention in the BC meeting with its question about could I imagine spending a life in bed. Perhaps if I had a neverending pile of good books and someone to serve me with other things...

This book has not been rated.

After I had read half of the book I was getting irritated. The daily and hourly descriptions of Q´s days were not funny anymore but just repetitious and boring.
I was beginning to think “Oh woman, stop the whining, take a book and you will have no need to count hours anymore” .
Luckily the second half of the book was more serious and lifted this novel a bit above the average Chick lit novel.
