The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
First sentence: "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!"
-This is another one of those "light reads" that didn't have any quotes that made me go back and re-read or write down a page to revisit. I also didn't find it particularly chilling... It was an enjoyable-enough read during our garage sale last weekend, though. And a short book for in-between Middlesex and my next venture.
Last sentence: "I don't mind," he said.
I decided to up all my book posts on Wednesdays. I'm a sucker for schedules (this is sad, no?). I don't want the book posts to pile up on top of each other as I notice they aren't popular but WHATEVER. I love knowing which quotes people liked in books and recently got a comment on my Middlesex posting saying they liked book posts. Granted this post is a bore, but that's because Stepford Wives was kind of a bore. I have yet to read a truly scary book. Recommendations? Please?
