Publisher's 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 20 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.

Buy Full Dark, No Stars

If you are looking to read "A Good Marriage" and "Big Driver", you should buy "Full Dark, No Stars" instead. Both short stories are apart of that book and you will get two more other novellas. I forgot that I already read "A Good Marriage" after I saw the movie. That's why I bought this story again. I was about to buy "Big Driver" after I saw the commercial on Lifetime, but glad that I did some digging because I already read it. Hopefully, they will make "1922" into a film from "Full Dark, No Stars". That is the best story out of the four. As for "A Good Marriage", the movie comes close to the short story.

Captivating story.

What made the experience of listening to A Good Marriage the most enjoyable?

I read this shortly after binge-watching the show Who the Bleep Did I Marry. While I'm pretty sure it spoiled the reveal, I still enjoyed King's pacing and character development. I really like and sympathized with Darcy. While the ending was not terribly surprising, it felt right.

What didn’t you like about Jessica Hecht’s performance?

Hecht's performance was off because she injected levity and laughter when it really did not fit. A more somber reader would have felt more realistic.
