A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin

The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Paperback, 135 pages
Published July 23rd 2002 by Perennial
(first published 1972)

The ending is very tight and suspenseful but otherwise I found it greatly outdated. The roaring feminism is a product of its times; thankfully the type of woman who spent their life being a victim of men are now reaching senior-hood. I feel pretty confident in saying that most mentally healthy 21st-century men would become bored *very* fast with a robot wife. LOL
