Title: A Good Marriage
Author: Stephen King
Narrator: Jessica Hecht
Release Date: September 30, 2014
I received this book from Simon & Schuster Audio, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: What happens when, on a perfectly ordinary evening, all the things you believed in and took for granted are turned upside-down?
When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It's a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.
Thoughts: Bill & Darcy Anderson has had a very good marriage for 20 years. Until the day Bill leaves on a trip, and Darcy find something disturbing and so unbelievable. Her world is rocked to the core.
This is the first short story I have read of Stephen King's. I did enjoy the story, but I had a really hard time listening to the narrator. I'm use to reading stories that feature strong women, but sadly Darcy comes off weak and naive. But on the other hand, I did really feel bad for her. It would be shocking for anyone to find out a dark secret when you think you know a person. A Good Marriage is a suspenseful read. Edge of your seat, intense.
Television & movie actress, Jessica Hecht narrates A Good Marriage.
