The internationally bestselling novel by the author of A Kiss Before Dying, The Boys from Brazil, and Rosemary's Baby
With an Introduction by Peter Straub
For Joanna, her husband, Walter, and their children, the move to beautiful Stepford seems almost too good to be true. It is. For behind the town's idyllic facade lies a terrible secret -- a secret so shattering that no one who encounters it will ever be the same.
At once a masterpiece of psychological suspense and a savage commentary on a media-driven society that values the pursuit of youth and beauty at all costs, The Stepford Wives is a novel so frightening in its final implications that the title itself has earned a place in the American lexicon.

It's one of my favorites and its a page turner
This book is slower than a snail in molasses, and much like a snail, it meanders nowhere and dies anticlimactically. The author seem to be going for a “creative cliffhanger ending”, but cliffhangers only work in TV shows where you actually plan to RESUME THE SHOW. Anyway, Bush did 9/11 and women belong in the kitchen. Big money over and out
Very slow and it ended with a lot of unresolved questions.
