I’ve always had a soft spot for Ira Levin and saw this book on a list when I was looking for something to fill the terror in a small town square. I haven’t seen the film and came to it as unspoilt as is possible with such an iconic story. The story follows Joanna, who’s just moved to Stepford with...

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.

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 really enjoyed this one and how casually creepy it was. The author was a master at weaving a story, which meant I was never bored, and the book raised many problems that I've struggled with myself: how defenceless I can be against physical strength, how there are times when nobody believes me/care...

Spoilers follow, though in practice most people probably have a basic idea of the plot, and I'm not spoiling specifics, really. So if you are aware of what this book is about, you are probably fine to read this. This was not nearly as frightening as I had hoped. The implications were certainly u...
