American Housewife by Helen Ellis – Book Review

Book Review American Housewife

This is a collection of short stories about the American housewife.  I absolutely enjoyed this book.  Each story was completely different, and extremely entertaining.  Some of these stories had a twist at the ending, some were short and to the point.  Ellis gives fully developed characters within a short time-frame.

Some housewives are subversive while others are hilariously frightening.  These stories were told in a variety of ways.  Personally, I found the one told strictly through emails most riveting. Ellis’ tongue-in-cheek writing is very arresting and I thoroughly enjoyed the more sarcastic aspects of her various characters.  I highly recommend this book.

Just a warning, though, don’t irritate your neighbors.
