really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi

I read this as a teenager when it was groundbreaking, coining the term "Stepford Wife" to describe the perfect wife. It was provocative at the time and interesting in concept. I recommend reading it just to understand the pop culture term alone, even if it is a bit dated.

P-eggy I don't think it's dated. I think it is just as applicable now as it ever was. Perhaps with the rise of militant Islam even more so.

Jonetta It's hard for me to judge whether it's dated or not as it's so firmly imprinted in my own mind. Thanks for your comment.
