This sweet, honest account of the life and loves of 20-something Joel Miller will keep listeners engaged with its quirky characters and insights into human relationships.

It's a Saturday morning in Brooklyn. Joel Miller, age 28, stands outside his locked bathroom door. Behind it are his girlfriend Lisa, a Dixie cup, and a pregnancy test. While she stalls for time, Miller is left in his hallway to wonder and wait: for the results of the test, for the pieces of his addled life to come together, for some kind of divine intervention to guide his actions when Lisa finally emerges.

Thus begins Lauren Grodstein's beguiling debut novel, a wise, wonderfully assured journey deep into the heart of the commitment-phobic male. Reproduction Is the Flaw of Love fearlessly charts the romantic odyssey of one endearing New York bachelor, and in so doing illuminates some universal truths about family, loyalty, devotion, and love.

    " I liked this book and would recommend it. I didn't like that you had to wait the entire book to find out whether Lisa is pregnant or not but the ending was satisfying and I was happy for Miller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Moffitt | 8/19/2013

    " Okay, but it kind of dragged on and I didn't like the end--seemed kind of abrupt. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jamie | 8/17/2013

    " I was with this book until the end, then it just made me feel sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Young | 8/2/2013

    " Entertaining. But, not really intellectually stimulating or much of a piece for conversation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/20/2013

    " This story is told as a series of flashbacks while Joel Miller waits to learn if his girlfriend is pregnant. It's a story of vignettes, really. I kept thinking that ex-girlfriend, Blair should also have a book narrated by her. Her story seems interesting.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Pizarro | 3/23/2013

    " I read this book a year ago. It wasn't bad or good. Nothing really stood out for me. I thought it was witty and interesting point of view. It was an easy read and the writting was fine. If your looking to read something light and funny this would be a good pick "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise Hamilton | 9/4/2012

    " Terrific book. The entire story takes place in the front of the bathroom door where the protagonist is sitting, waiting for the results of his girlfriends home pregnancy test. He goes back through his life, looking at what he calls his narrow escapes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy | 12/18/2011

    " Do all books set in New York have to have a gloomy undertone? I mean, is it a requirement? If this one hadn't been so depressing, I would have liked it more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 9/22/2011

    " Not the most earthshattering premise, but it had good moments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 9/8/2011

    " Quick, easy, and enjoyable, yet depressing and not in an enlightening way... kind of a "feel bad" book with nothing gained in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 7/10/2011

    " good. almost a character study. Unusual writing style - no chapters but short vignettes, makes it a quick read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angeline K | 2/14/2011

    " I read this in 2005. I was post bad break up and settling into my new adult life. I still think about this book. It's been 7 years. "
