    I really enjoyed this short story. Just a bit disappointed that it is a tad too short. ...

    I was expecting more out of this. I am currently in my "post-Allegiant mourning period" and I decided a short cutsie story was what I needed. I had never read anything by Sophie Kinsella, but I had heard she was a fun read, which was exactly what I needed. It didn't really do it for ...

    This is a fun Christmas short story by Sophie Kinsella. There isn't much depth to it, but to her credit, it is really short. ...

    I didn't love it like I have loved all of her previous stories. Perhaps its just because it was only 50ish pages long and I didnt really get invested in the story. Plus I pretty much hated all the characters!! LOL... I really do hope they got a wake up call at the end. :P ...

    A very short story set at an exclusive ante-natal class full of "mum to be" sterotypes: critical of hubby mum, working mum, nervous mum, all natural, no pain relief mum, making baby-Einstein mum and they all get a Dickensian type experience of motherhood to come! I'd say it's a good na...

    Loved every word of this short story, but then when could Sophie disappoint? Well actually she can but not with this short story. Not so much of a Christmas story, more like a baby or pregnancy story with Christmas thrown in, but bloody brilliant none the less. A good story to dip into...

    Found this story online, very quick read! It was okay, I liked the Christmas theme and how it taught you that you should see how your action affect others. I would like for this to be a full fleshed out story, but it was an okay read. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, only those tha...

    I wanted to download to my kindle but its only available via Amazon UK, which I dont have so I read on her website.. It was a short story alright, basically over as soon as it began. Several women going thru meeting with their midwives, talking about names of their babies, and all ...

    I haven't read any Sophie Kinsella books in a while, I've been saving it for next year. This ebook wasn't what I expected. I expected a man and a woman, falling in love, has romantic night on Christmas eve, typical Christmas Romance, etc. But it wasn't It was about 6 ladies, 6 pregn...

    A super short and sweet Christmassy story about a group of pregnant women attending an antenatal class. Although it took less than ten minutes to read, it packed a lovely Christmassy punch as it had a sort of Dickens' A Christmas Carol feel to it. Three stars ...

    This cute little free Kindle offering from Sophie Kinsella will keep fans going until I?ve Got Your Number comes out, especially as it has the first chapter of that novel included. The Six Geese are Ginny (the narrator), Grace, Gina, Georgia, Geraldine and Gabby, all mums-to-be, all ...

    I can never resist anything Sophie Kinsella so I jumped into reading this the minute I found out about it. (It's free on her website btw). It's not super Christmas-y, just set around Christmas. Since it's so short, saying anything will give it all away sooo... I'll just say that it ...

    As someone who is horrified at the thought of child bearing and rearing, does not like chick-lit and was in fact terrified by the author's first book, I'm not quite sure why I read this. But I did and it was OK I guess. Giving the women all G names was a bit obvious and I think the Chr...

    i don't like short stories anyway but as this one was from an author I like I gave it a go. Wish I hadn't bothered, it was not Christmassy like I was expecting and only about half of the download was the story, the rest being a preview of a future book which I didn't even bother wit...

    I thought this story was pretty poor. It was centred around a group of women at a pre-natal class and had a "ghost of Christmas future" kind of element to it. Not my cup of tea. ...

    This is a short story from Sophie Kinsella. It is in part a retelling of `A Christmas Carol' but centers on six pregnant women (the 'geese') who are visited by a spirit who shows them the `ghost of babies' future' at their maternity class.Their sense of smugness then disappears as they...

    Much as I love Sophie kinsella this book was just awful! Ok I know it's a short book and I know it was free but it was still awful. I'm just glad I didn't pay for it or I would have been asking for my money back. Go back to doing what you do best Sophie and please don't write dri...

    I downloaded this short story for free via Amazon few months ago. Yesterday I was in the mood for something Christmas related so I decided this would be a perfect choice since I love Sophie Kinsella's work. Oh, how wrong was I! This short story had the most arrogant main charact...

    Oh, what a load of rubbish. I had the opportunity to read this little short story and, being a Kinsella fan, thought this would be one for me. Coupled with the fact that this was marked as a Christmas read, I thought this would be a great little story. I was terribly wrong. So the p...

    A super quick novella which took me ten minutes max to read - it ended at 52% and was then followed by a preview of another Kinsella book. I downloaded this for free but I still wish authors would say when a book ends that early, you think you're part way through enjoying a story and t...

    Unfortunately, I wasn't very impressed by this short story. It was too "plain" for my taste and I was disappointed by how abruptly the events happened. It almost felt too unrealistic and caricatural. Again - disappointed. ...
