review Eleven Hours Eleven Hours review Í 3 summary Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Pamela Erens Severe challenge of childbirth what it does to the mind and the body Eleven Hours is the story of two soon to be mothers who in the midst of a difficult labor are forced to reckon with their pasts and re create their futures Lore must disentangle herself from a love triangle; Franckline must move beyond past traumas to accept the life that’s waiting for her Pamela Erens moves seamles. I was complaining with some reader friends about how there are hardly any books that write about pregnancy or birth in a way that feels real when one of them mentioned ELEVEN HOURS as an exception I m frustrated with how pregnant women are treated in books and movies always noble always rubbing their bellies and Tin House kindly sent me a copy when they saw our conversation This book is just what it appears to be the story of one woman s birth through her own eyes and the eyes of her nurse who is pregnant herself and hasn t told anyone yetLore is alone things ended badly with the boyfriend who fathered her child but she is determined and stubborn and sees no reason why she can t do this on her own complete with a long and detailed birth plan Lore s solitude is crucial to the narrative it gives Lore nothing to focus on but her labor and her fear I can see how you could be in Lore s position and feel empowered to have a birth experience on your own but having had two children myself the idea of giving birth alone terrifies me When you have a baby especially if you don t have an epidural you meet a part of yourself you probably never met before You become acuainted with pain in a new way You find that you make sounds you didn t know you could make Reading about Lore s experience reminded me so keenly of my own births even though mine were happy and pleasant and used drugs that mostly worked Erens has tapped into the heart of the experience that is lonely and scared and dangerous and it s a well told and important storyErens style is that modern prose that flows forward like a river her narrative moves between the two characters mostly effortlessly but it s rooted in their thoughts and experiences to keep you as a reader feeling grounded until the very end of the book The last few pages are different and left me somewhat unsatisfied but didn t affect the power of the overall narrativeI wouldn t recommend reading it while you re pregnant especially if it s your first every episode of A Baby Story that didn t go perfectly smoothly haunted me during my pregnancy But otherwise this is the kind of book we just don t see much and that s a real shame
