A Not-Really-Review: The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin

Katie tripped over the piles of dirty clothes surrounding her washing machine. Why could she never keep up with the laundry? The other women made it seem so simple: always a clean counter, a well-stocked pantry, and never, never a pile of dirty laundry just laying around. She sighed as she poured herself a drink, trying to ignore the tufts of dog hair spinning dervishes on her kitchen floor. Perfect homes. Perfect children. Perfect figures. Well, as far as she could see, perfection was not much fun! With a satisfied smile, Katie slumped into her oversized chair, clutching a book and reveling in her dusty, unorganized, and wonderfully imperfect bookshevles.
