Publisher's Summary

Emma J. Chapman's haunting literary debut has won an abundance of favorable reviews from critics and fellow authors alike. How to Be a Good Wife tells the story of Marta, who through her long marriage to Hector has followed all the advice in the dog-eared manual Hector's mother gave her. But her world is beginning to come apart. Marta is finding it harder and harder to remember life before Hector, and as her thoughts become more and more disjointed, she begins to see a blonde girl in the darkness - and knows that something is coming for her.

    Story
    "Not Much Happens"

    This book could have been a short story or a novella. Nothing actually happens until chapter 18. If I'd been reading it instead of listening I would have stopped in chapter three. But the narrator was very good at conveying the bland and unhinged mood of the story- so much so that I had to stop every half hour because it was making me feel depressed.
    The writing is very good, except that the author uses too many speech tags. I didn't need so much "he said, she said" to follow who was talking.
    The plot was interesting and I wanted to know what was going on. But, like I said, it could have been told in a few chapters. There was too much filler.
