A Man With An Agenda rated it 1 year ago
This novel has entered pop culture so seamlessly it was strange to read the source material. As some reviewers have acknowledged, there isn't a whole lot to the book, Levin didn't feel the need to elaborate on the hows and whys of Stepford's transformation. That is probably one of the chillier aspec...

I cheated. I was a horrible bookworm and saw the movie years before reading the book. In my defense, it wasn’t totally my fault. I took this awful film class in college, and the only good memory I have from it is watching the 1975 Stepford Wives movie. I absolutely loved the movie and can’t believe ...

I thought this story was good, but strangely enough the movie with Nicole Kidman was far better. For once the movie fleshed out the story more than the original book, plus the movie had a much better, more satisfactory ending (although maybe not as disturbing).23/1/2016 - Just watched the Nicole Kid...

Is their a conspiracy afoot or are Johanna and her friend Bobbie imagining things?The Stepford Wives is a ...

“That’s what she was, Joanna felt suddenly. That’s what they all were, all the Stepford wives: actresses in commercials, pleased with detergents and floor wax, with cleansers, shampoos, and deodorants. Pretty actresses, big in the bosom but small in the talent, playing housewives unconvincingly, too...

First thing: Chuck Palahniuk needs to read books before he gives out about them - there are many complaints to be made about the Shopaholic books, that they are about a woman trying to get a man is not one of them. Second thing, this was really good and I'm mainly annoyed that was too familiar with ...
