I truly like Chandler Baker’s work so I was excited for this one as well. She did an excellent job of presenting issues that affect middle class women. I liked the manner in which the novel was inside Nora’s head and we saw every one of her contradictions and defects while likewise her desperation for some assistance.
The only thing that felt awkward to me in terms of statement were the media bits embedded between certain chapters. These were basically imagined reactions to online blog entries or online articles. These were not straightforwardly related to the story (however they were about the subject of harmony between the commitments of married couples) and didn’t carry any new points of view or information to the story. As far as my opinion is concerned I think these might have been cut from the novel.
All in all, The Husbands by Chandler Baker is a spine chiller that does more than solve an intense mystery. This novel gives readers a point of reference on how to gain ground as a society. Chandler Baker doesn’t offer us a response to the questions she raises, she just gives us an answer that most would consider to have gone excessively far.
