The moment I decided to leave him the moment I thought enough we were thirty five thousand feet above the ocean hurtling forward but giving the illusion of stillness and tranuility Just like our marriage So opens Meg Wolitzer's compelling and provocative novel The Wife as Joan Castleman sits beside her husband on their flight to Helsinki Joan's husband Joseph Castleman is one of those men who own the worldwho has no idea how to take care of himself or anyone else and who derives much of his style from the Dylan Thomas Handbook of Personal Hygiene and This was a great book The only two drawbacks are that she used some strong profanity in parts and that from the beginning you can figure out the ending However the following passage makes up for it I read it to my husband Everyone knows how women soldier on how women dream up blueprints recipes ideas for a better world and then sometimes lose them on the way to the crib in the middle of the night on the way to Stop and Shop or the bath They lose them on the way to greasing the path on which their husband and children will ride serenely through life p 183 This passage really spoke to me

Meg Wolitzer ´ The Wife Doc

The WifeArefully kept secret Wolitzer's most important and ambitious book to date The Wife is a wise sharp eyed compulsively readable story about a woman forced to confront the sacrifices she's made in order to achieve the life she thought she wanted But it's also an unusually candid look at the choices all men and women make for themselves in marriage work and life With her skillful storytelling and pitch perfect observations Wolitzer invites intriguing uestions about the nature of partnership and the precarious position of an ambitious woman in a man's worl This book was good and interesting but to me not great I enjoyed the read and had this book on my want to read list for a while but when I saw that it was being made into a movie with Glen Close as the star I moved it up on my list I think Glen Close will be perfect in this role This was a story about a husband and wife where the husband was a famous author The reviews of the book says it had a shocking ending but I had already figure it out because I've read so much about Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald I won't say any to give it away but I was not surprised at all at the ending had been predicting it about half way through the book Enjoyable read especially if you want to read about a woman who wants to be a strong woman
