Mrs. March: A Novel
Mrs. March: A Novel | Virginia Feito
I read Virginias novel in one sitting and was so captured by it I knew I had to make it and play Mrs. March. As a character, she is fascinating, complex, and deeply human and I cant wait to sink my teeth into her. Elisabeth Moss Who is Mrs. March? George Marchs latest novel is a smash. No one could be prouder than his dutiful wife, Mrs. March, who revels in his accolades. A careful creature of routine and decorum, she lives a precariously controlled existence on the Upper East Side until one morning, when the shopkeeper of her favorite patisserie suggests that her husbands latest protagonista detestable character named Johannais based on Mrs. March herself. Clutching her ostrich leather pocketbook and mint-colored gloves, she flees the shop. What could have merited this humiliation? That one casual remark robs Mrs. March of the belief that she knew everything about her husbandand herselfthus sending her on an increasingly paranoid journey that begins within the pages of a book. While snooping in Georges office, Mrs. March finds a newspaper clipping about a missing woman. Did George have anything to do with her disappearance? Hes been going on a lot of hunting trips up north with his editor lately, leaving Mrs. March all alone at night with her tormented thoughts, and the cockroaches that have suddenly started to appear, and strange breathing noises . . . As she begins to decode her husbands secrets, her deafening anxiety and fierce determination threaten everyone in her wakeincluding her stoic housekeeper, Martha, and her unobtrusive son, Jonathan, whom she loves so profoundly, when she remembers to love him at all. Combining a Hitchcockian sensibility with wickedly dark humor, Virginia Feito, a brilliantly talented and, at times, mischievous newcomer, offers a razor-sharp exploration of the fragility of identity. A mesmerizing novel of psychological suspense and casebook insecurity turned full-blown neurosis, Mrs. March will have you second-guessing your own seemingly familiar reflection in the mirror.

Oh, wow! Look at these birthday lovelies! 😍 Thank you so much, @Cathythoughts !

You guessed correctly with the Ferrante; I really liked the first book in the Neapolitan Quartet but told myself I wouldn‘t buy this one until I‘d read more of that series. 🤣 I‘m so looking forward to Mrs March and A Kiss Before Dying and I love the Irish chocolate and pretty card and pen, too.

Thanks so much, my friend! 😘😘

squirrelbrain Lovely gifts! The Ferrante is one of my favourites of this year, and I also really liked Mrs March. Happy Birthday! 😘 1mo

“Although it‘s always sweet sorrow to part…you know you‘ll always remain in my heart…”

Ay,caramba! What the heck did I just read? I blame her for slowing my reading down last week. It took me 8 days to finish this small book. I realize now that it was because Mrs. March kinda repulsed me. I didn‘t want to be inside her head. But the last third I read all through the night. ⬇️

⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½

EvieBee Small quibble. What time period was this set in? Sometimes it felt like the 60s and at other times like the 90s because of technical inconsistencies. These are the little things that I‘m anal about because it trips up my imagination. 1mo
squirrelbrain Great review - I felt pretty much the same as you about it. (And I also couldn‘t figure out the time period either….) 🤷‍♀️ 1mo
EvieBee @squirrelbrain Oh good! I thought I‘d be the exception lol! Normally I like neurotic protagonists but this was way trippy. 1mo
Cathythoughts Yes ! There‘s something about this book .. I still havnt finished .. I want to , but I have huge resistance to picking it up again.. Mrs March !!! 1mo
EvieBee @Cathythoughts That was me! I could only do small intervals and wasn‘t ecstatic to pick it up. But that last third…made up for the rest. 1mo

10-18-21: My 103rd finished book of 2021! Mrs. March‘s husband, George, has a new bestselling book. Some say the main character must be based on Mrs. March, but she can‘t believe this is true. This starts Mrs. March down a neurotic path. She isn‘t sure she knows her husband at all. Now, she has to figure out what is real and what is imaginary and who she can trust. Suspenseful until the end. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣0️⃣3️⃣

The Shirley Jackson vibes are definitely here! This story of a mad housewife is unsettling. Prim and proper upper class Mrs. March is unnerved when it is suggested that the prostitute main character in her husband‘s new novel is based on her. But Feito slowly reveals that things haven‘t been right with Mrs March for a long, long time...

I‘m using this creepy novel for the category “book with green on cover” for #RoaringWolf Ominous October.

EvieBee I love this review! I‘ve been on the library hold list for this for what seems forever but the negative reviews were making me consider canceling. Glad I didn‘t as I‘m next on the list! 2mo
Ruthiella @EvieBee I think you‘ll like this Evie. Even though it‘s creepy, it also shares aspects of those novels you like that feature troubled young women who are spiraling out of control. 2mo

This had some parts in common with Yellow Wallpaper and other mad woman stories. But it is hard to say. Mrs March and others in the story seem unreliable if not just untruthful. No one seems to be better for their relationship with Mrs. March. I look forward to seeing this adaptation.

I pitched this one up when I saw it had been picked up for adaptation. But, unfortunately, I didn‘t see the appeal. A very unlikeable narrator (which is often a dealbreaker for me). I kept reading to see if there would be redemption or justice, but, nope

Tamra This definitely seems to be a love it or hate it novel! 2mo

This book seems to be a character study of an eye-wateringly self-absorbed woman who has some unnamed neurologic or psychiatric problem that is worsening. But I just don‘t really get the point of it. Plus, there were timeline errors I found very distracting. I think if it were written a bit differently I would have liked it.

The ending had better be worth the time I‘ve … (wasted is too harsh a word) spent on this thus far. If you have a mental illness, reading about it as a plot is either triggering or just plain boring. I‘m bored. Can we get in with SOMETHING, please? 🙄

This was pretty great! Super unsettling, loved the writing/setting/attention to weird details. (I share with Mrs. March an obsession with olive bread, loved how much it was referenced! There‘s also a bit about The Lawrence Welk Show near the end that spoke to my soul bc I watched so many reruns of that as a kid with my older parents; the way it was used in this book slayed me.) Great on audio, too - just the slump-buster I needed this week!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Oh, Mrs. March, you awkward, unreliable dear! All anyone in town seems to be talking about is George March‘s new book. Remember that song by Harvey Danger? Ya know, “Paranoia, paranoia, everybody‘s coming to get me …” ⬅️ That‘s Mrs. March once she hears a rumor that the horrid main character in her husband‘s popular novel is based on *gasp* HER. A dark, oddly fun story with damned good writing. Impressive debut!

Since I met my Goodreads goal early, I decided to read 12 #BOTM #bookofthemonth books — I wanted to see what my resistance was, if I could 😜 (I suspect it has something to do with my lifelong resistance to reading-what-I‘m-told yo read 🤭). I‘m 5 books into that… but when this book arrived from #FantasticStrangelings #fantasticstrangelingsbookclub yesterday, I simply couldn‘t resist. Loving it so far…..

My copy of this month‘s #FantasticStrangelings book just arrived. This is a book I don‘t think I would have chosen on my own, so I‘m interested to see what it‘s like.

I always wonder what makes a book cover artist decide to make a new cover look worn/torn/dirty. I wonder if that will fit the story?

A socialite and housewife, Mrs. March suspects that her author husband is involved in some foul play. However, she begins to question her own sanity as she sees ghastly apparitions and terrifying visions which makes her an unreliable narrator in this psychological mystery thriller that will keep you guessing by the end.
