  1. My Wife s Story is a very old fashioned story, suitable for a sophisticated time I could see this story in a magazine in the fifties or sixties, when the art of short story writing was kept in higher regard, and when a story could be told simply, but have this wonderful subtext I could also see this, with minimal tweaking, as an Alfred Hitchcock PresentsS is very much about the nature of relationships I could say the nature of marriage, but I d say there is some spill over into friendship and fa [...]


  2. I laughed out loud several times during this story It has a dark humor to it, nicely written in a very easy and droll way As the narrator told his story, I felt his frustration, pain and even hatred about his wife and her infernal little anecdote, and I really shouldn t have been amused by this man s suffering But I was.This couple fight in a way only the long married and long suffering can do, with a kind of passive aggression that builds up anger and resentment on both sides And as this husban [...]


  3. This was an entertaining read I was looking for something short and light to read before bed, and this story fit that bill The premise of the story was something I think a lot of people can relate to Most of us have at least one family member who can ruin a dinner party on a pretty consistent basis, and some of us are blessed with a few such people in our lives.I could relate to the narrator s pain and that drew me right into the story The main character s inner dialogue was believable, and unde [...]


  4. Thankfully short, this story was sold as a Kindle Single at a bargain basement price.The protagonist tells us at the beginning that the story his wife tells every new acquaintance is in itself an interesting and charming tale He admits that the story played a major role in their courtship However, he has now heard it 2,000 times and cannot stand it one time.Eventually, he concluded that the only way out was to overthrow her He became convinced that of he committed that one simple act, the entire [...]


  5. This is one of the best short stories I ve ever read Richard Babcock masterfully leads the reader through the entire process of a doomed relationship, all the way from the moment of falling in love, through years of developing desperation, to a very satisfying climax.I loved his description of his wife s storytelling that she exploited other people s words to construct a gateway for herself I ve known people like that, and it s a horrible feeling to have to listen to the same story over and over [...]


  6. It is a very easy reading text Somehow I ended up reading the comments on my wife s story It seemed that people enjoyed having read this short novel I decided to buy Well I am not married yet I don t know what its like to get married I hear stories about marriage life where love and hate coexist And I also hear when that balance is disrupted,devorce is most likely to be the answer This author shows what happens when that balance is broken and is inclined to be unfair to the extreme manner Well, [...]


  7. First of all I look for humor, mystery, and or a belly laugh comedy I mostly read for entertainment and these are the genres I find entertaining With that in mind, I found this an easy read It flowed well without the need to rifle back through to reacquaint myself with what was going on when distracted, but it was short and singularly minded so that s not surprising It wasn t funny or mysterious Unless you say it s funny and mysterious why it was written at all It felt petty, shallow, and a trif [...]


  8. Extremely funny, well written book about a very simple topic Reminds me of some of my favourite films, those foreign subtitled ones in which nothing ever happens and yet they are engrossing well, this is the same It s a tale about a tale, and I was a bit irritated to read some other readers reviews who whined nothing happens or they expected.That s the whole darn point The point is in the telling of the story, about the telling of the story we have all been there, and I couldn t stop laughing I [...]


  9. I really enjoyed this story It was a great length for my commute into work on the train The story was excellent and original and the ending wasn t what I expected Good work Mr Babcock, I will seek out of your stuff Sean Fallon equiatic_bind.
