All the beautiful people live in the idyllic village of Stepford, Connecticut, an affluent suburban Eden populated with successful, satisfied hubbys and their beautiful, dutiful wives. For Joanna Eberhart, a recent arrival with her husband and two children, it all seems too perfect to be true -- from the sweet, accommodating 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.… (mer)

I don't know about the supposed satire people associate with this book, i read it as a straight up horror story. I knew the premise going in but wasn't sure how it would play out.
This is very good, Levins style lends itself well to drawing the mundane. Everything is very clear and easy to picture. Although his scene switching can take a little getting used to. The scene changes being rather abrupt.
Overall its shorter than I expected and it leaves you with plenty of room to speculate and think about the story. I like it and i'm glad i have another couple of Levins books on my to-do list. ( )

AHHHHHH! I finally read this one, and it turns out, the wives of Stepford are actually all SE-

Oh, oh, sorry. I won't spoil things for the rest of you. Go away and read this, so I can finish my review. Not the finest work, but a charming -- if not horrifying -- glimpse of progressive politics in 1972 suburban New England.

While you read, I'm just gonna go wax the family room floor... ( )

I'd somehow gone all this time without reading this book or watching a film of the same, though I knew the premise. I'm glad to have finally read it--I will say that--and I can even see myself looking up more of Levin's work. This one dragged for me some, though the last fourth of it flew by and had my pulse going faster. In some ways, I think that speed-up at the end made it a more effective read; though earlier passages had dragged in spots for me, the very mundane nature of them and the read itself mirrored an immersion of the town, so I can see why Levin crafted the book as he did. The story itself could have been shorter, but I don't think the effect would have been so impressive.

So, would I recommend the book? I think so. All told, I understand why this was a classic and I'm looking forward to more of the author's work. ( )

Another memory jogged — one that I remember better. It must have been the 70s or 80s that I read this, and working in Boston by then it seemed everyone was talking about it (for differing reasons). I enjoyed reading it then, but wouldn't be interested now. ( )

Chilling. It would be bad enough for one spouse to want to turn the one they claim to love into a mindless robot, but a whole town? Wow. Town run by psychopaths posing as respectable pillars of the community. In some ways, I found parallels today, with the media and the government playing the part of the spouse and we, the wives, who they want to be non-thinking entities. ( )

Today the combat takes a different shape; instead of wishing to put man in prison, woman endeavors to escape from one; she no longer seeks to drag him into the realms of immanence but to emerge, herself, into the light of transcendence. Now the attitude of the males creates a new conflict: it is with a bad grace that the man lets her go.

The Welcome Wagon lady, sixty if she was a day but working at youth and vivacity (ginger hair, red lips, a sunshine-yellow dress), twinkled her eyes and teeth at Joanna and said, "You're really going to like it here! It's a nice town with nice people! You couldn't have made a better choice!"
