I had the joy of reading J.K. Accinni's book Baby. The book itself pulled me in and it only took me 3 days to read because I kept forever getting lost in the story. I love the portrayal of Netty and how she goes from a caterpillar to a butterfly with the help of the amazing Baby. I could imagine baby trotting along behind Netty everywhere she went and I was just so very enthralled with his character. He was truly amazing. How he had unending and relentless love for Netty and then for Wil. I like how his demeanor changed when he was with the two different characters and how they formed a family where again beautiful things come from a damaged past. I especially like how Baby was the "protector" of the kittens that touched my heart and really showed the heart of Baby himself. Ms. Accinni is a very talented wordsmith and you can tell her heart was in this book fully heart and soul. I would read this again and again and if I could give it stars they would be infinite because I loved this story so very much! I can't wait to move on to Echo which is sitting right beside me as I type.

I enjoyed reading this book, "Baby" tells the story of a young woman, Netty, and a lot of the unfortunate struggles she goes through. She marries Robert, a man 20+yrs her senior. He was absolutely vile and repulsing, who only marries Netty after finding out she's the heir to a huge land fortune. His men were equally as repulsing, the things they did were truly awful.

When Netty finally escapes, she comes across Baby, who she takes into her home and cares for him as if he was her own. From there things started to change for the better for Netty, she finds love with Wil and they become a happy little family. "Baby" has its ups and downs but overall I enjoyed it.

My only downside was the different points of view without warning by the different characters.

When I started to read this book, I thought to myself "What did I get myself into"? A book based in the late 1920's with a couple living on a farm giving their daughters hand away in marriage.
Wow, was I wrong! Once Netty got the courage to leave her abusive husband and run to a place where she always felt secure, that this story started to draw me in. Of course this is when she encounters a dying creature. She feels the need to take it in and care for it. Not only was this story a tragic at times but it was also very touching.
The love that bonds these two is heartwarming and yes I will admit it, it's a tear jerker as well.
Your emotions take a ride right along with the twist and turns that develop in the story.
If you are a pet lover and a person that believes that things happen for a reason, then I must say this is the kind of book that you will not want to put down. ET may be phoning home, but I'm calling on Echo being even better!

It is said that the story likens to E.T. which is true to some extent. Baby too, is a mysterious creature called an Oolahan, comes from somewhere outside our universe. However, the friendship that ensues between a battered and bruised – in body& soul – young woman and Baby, as she names him, is simple yet complicated and definitely deep and mysterious.

So are the changes that take shape in Nelly’s body, soul and spirit. When she rescues an Italian man, he comes to love and also accept the mystery surrounding Baby as well as the influence he has on Nelly. It all is fine as long as they keep themselves to themselves.

The first time they venture out together to a dance in the village – brutal and shocking things happen. But… there is more to it than the eye can see!

This story is told in such a way that it grabbed not only my attention – I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting, it was thát good! – but also my heart and emotions. I felt the pain, the relief of Nelly’s escape, the fear, the love, the struggle for acceptance, and also the shock and horror in Nelly’s life. I gasped at what I thought was the end of the story. Fortunately, the mystery continues and I can’t wait to read the second book in the series, Echo.

I loved this book! Not just the story, but also how it is told, the beautiful language and imagery used. I learned quite a few new words (so easy as my e-reader contains a dictionary!). I give it 6 out of 5 stars!

Baby was one of the most interesting books i have read this year. It is an alien story that adults and teens can get into.

Wow, I love science fiction, but this book is much more! It's a love story.

Netty is a wonderful character. Unfortunately, she is forced to endure abuse from her rapist husband. Although badly treated, her spirit is not broken. When an opportunity to escape arises, she takes it. I loved her warm and generous heart. When she finds a hurt creature, she takes it in and looks after it. She names it Baby.

Baby is an alien, who has a mission. One that gets blurred once he meets Netty. I grew attached to Baby. He has a unique way of looking at things, almost childlike. However, his mission is not altruistic.

Wil is also a fantastic character. He is loving and kind, and just what Netty needs. Together, the three of them make themselves a unique family.

I knew going in that this book would be dark, but I felt a bit like a rabbit caught in headlights! I was totally fascinated with this story! The violence is very disturbing, but I found myself completely hooked. I found the characters very life like, and I became very sympathetic to them. I also took an extreme dislike to Netty's husband. He deserved worse punishment for his crimes! The book is very fast paced and before I knew it, I had reached the end. The ending was a complete shock, and had me in tears. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Echo.

J.K. Accinni has written an amazing science fiction story that tugs on every emotion: anger, disgust, hate, love, happiness, sadness and terror. Due to the extreme violence (abuse and rape), I do not recommend this book to young readers, or those who are squeamish or of a nervous disposition. I do, however, recommend this book if you love a well written science fiction/love story that will stay with you long after you have finished the book. - Lynn Worton

What can I say about Baby? Gosh there is so much that could be said but I will start off with WOW!!! I did not think I would be able to get into this because I have never quite been into Sci-fi type stuff but I cannot figure out if Baby is scifi or paranormal. either way I LOVE IT!!! I cannot wait to read the rest of this series. it is DEF a must read for everyone!
