This is the best book I ve read this year Period Maybe last year too Maybe I don t know But this book is amazing I just looked up synonyms for amazing and all of them are adjectives you can use to describe this book Man John Updike just has this way of making the most mundane ordinary stuff extraordinary He takes pages and pages to set a scene or describe the inner thoughts of one of his main characters and all of it is awesome I mean there were paragraphs that went on for pages to depict every single aspect of a scene and I ate it all up like a beautifully crafted Caesar salad before the filet and baked potato arrived That steakhouse analogy seems appropriate because this is like the Ruth s Chris of literature There is so much I want to do with this illustration but I m gonna stop myself and move on When I consider the plot of this story and imagine myself describing it to someone it doesn t feel like an easy sell at all I mean here I am giving it five stars and I feel like breaking down the story for someone will make them think I m crazy Like Alright alright check this out This guy Rabbit yeah not his real name Long story Anyway dude has this wife and a kid and stuff and he has this boring job and then one day he just decides to run away from it all It s crazy And man I don t wanna run it for you but he makes these crazy decisions and gets himself in some wild situations and I ll be damned if it really is just a whole awful sad mess of a story but it s awesome man It s so awesome Sometimes nothing happens for a long time but the writing is so good that you don t even really care The characters are complex too and all developed and stuff and you just get lost in the story every time you pick the book up again It s classic contemporary American literature or something I don t knowAnd that s how I would describe the book Just like that Because that s how I talk in real life when I m not reviewing books on the internet I can t recommend this book enough I ve got some Roth and Bellow waiting now Look at me getting all well rounded and cultured all of a sudden Maybe I ll start writing serious reviews like I m writing for The NY Times or something Bigger adjectives and pretentiousness and whatever Start talking about existentialism and symbolism and the human condition Maybe I ll turn a corner Nope

Ce o constiinta torturata de neputinta de a fi stapana propriului destin care ii pune pe umeri responsabilitatea fata de copii; de Ruth Leonard o Lilith moderna care incearca sa l indeparteze de familie Dar cea mai importanta dintre ele originea tuturor spaimelor este fuga de sine care lasata nesupravegheata naste nu numai monstri ci si tragediiFugi Rabbit este considerat de John Updike o replica la faimosul Pe drum al lui Jack Kerouac infatisand ce se intampla cand un tata de familie american o ia la fuga cei ramasi in urma vinovatii fara vina sufera cumplit Considerat inovator ca stil este printre primele romane care folosesc ritm. bellow s writing blows my mind but rarely touches my heart a handful of mailer s essays and novels are essential but it s his guts and brain and balls and heart and the ferocity with which he lived life that s the real inspiration roth well i ve made my views on roth very well known in bookface world and the few updike short stories i ve read only convinced me that his elegant writerly style really bugs the shit out of me all of em bellow mailer roth updike found themselves as the right people at the right time white dudes in america when america was the shit and white dudes were kings of the shit but they knew that their kingdom of shit of course owed much to the disenfranchisement of non dudes and non whites and fools have always found em to be racist andor sexist not realizing that a post war examination of racism and sexism was much of the point that this conflict that life as guilty royalty lies at the heart of much of their work i ve always found mailer and roth to be wait for it wait for it amongst the most compassionate of any and all writers and they re hardasses they accept no preconceived notions they want to know they NEED to know even if they find themselves branded self loathing jews or repressed homosexuals or shouted down by an angry panel of feminists well nobody catches shit than updike and nobody gets sucked off and i of course found myself in the former camp and digging it updike from my not having read much of his stuff perspective always kinda came off as some dull smiling yuppie dick and that obsession with the perfect elegant adjective heavy sentence makes me wanna diarrhea updike seemed kinda like the literary euivalent of billy joel sitting down for a lunch of kraft cheese and mayonnaise on wonder bread and so i started the first Rabbit and my suspicions were immediately confirmed i mean those first two sentences Boys are playing basketball around a telephone pole with a backboard bolted to it Legs shoutsaaaarrrggghh horrible the kind of shit to make a writing teacher come in hisher jeans and he uses all those writerly terms that don t really correspond to anything in real life people talking are clucking or chirping crisp to describe a pair of slacks or lumpy to describe people or words or ideas or anything the hell else and it s not just as many people have pointed out that Rabbit is a dickhead it s that he s an uninteresting dickhead and updike sets an uninteresting dickhead against a symbolically charged tapestry meant to represent a kind of microcosmic america and it s dull and obvious and schematic and again writerly and then 12way through the book neck deep in boredom and fury something happened rabbit and ruth the tragic town slut he s shacked up with run into rabbit s sister who s headed down the same road as ruth and it resonated and as the events of the second half unfolded i HATED updike even as i realized that the bastard was fucking with me and it was working it had worked and all that junk in the first half is suddenly given new significance by the events of the latter half and i was yes blown away by updike s compassion and understanding and skill so updike my first book made me cry i m not talking misty eyed and lump in the throat but like tears running down my cheeks not bad and i feel okay upgrading updike from smiling yuppie dick to subject of unfortunately cheery author photo and i just bought the second Rabbit book we ll see
