Waterstones Says

Levin is the master of making outrageous plotlines seem eminently reasonable, and The Stepford Wives is no exception. Imbuing the tale of misogynist robotics with a chilling plausibility, Levin creates one of the great satires of domestic constraint and submissive femininity, as well as a rip roaring, immensely suspenseful thriller.

The women of Stepford are not all that they seem...

All the beautiful people live in idyllic Stepford, Connecticut, an affluent, suburban Eden populated with successful, satisfied hubbies and beautiful, dutiful wives. For Joanna Eberhart, newly arrived with her husband and two children, it all seems too good to be true - from the sweet Welcome Wagon lady to all those cheerful, friendly faces in the supermarket checkout lines.

But just beneath the town's flawless surface, something is sordid and wrong - something abominable with roots in the local Men's Association. And it may already be too late for Joanna to save herself from being devoured by Stepford's hideous perfection.

“Plastic Fantastic?”

An iconic story, even more relevant today in an age obsessed with technology and physical perfection, but at what cost?
A great read, I finished the book with a cold trickle going down my spine!

“worth reading for the introduction alone”

The introduction to this edition is perhaps one of the most succinct articles I have ever read. Stepford Wives is also a stunning read. Fans of the original film may be surprised by the few differences but will still... More

This is such an iconic story - everyone knows what is meant by a Stepford Wife! So I was surprised at how very short the book is. I enjoyed the basic plot idea and I think politically it's as relevant today as it... More
