The Stepford Wives - Ira Levin - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Stepford Wives:

The scary story of a family moving to the suburbs to create a "perfect" life (and get the "perfect" wife").

My favorite Ira Levin Quote from the book:

"They never stop, these Stepford wives. They something something all their lives. "

Questions to ponder while reading The Stepford Wives:

Do you believe in the suburban myth?

How do you feel about traditional gender roles?

My thoughts about The Stepford Wives:

I am scared.

I am moving to the city.

I am going to dust now...
