John Updike ¿ 9 Summary

Of reflection on life just like the other 3 novels But With A Bittersweet Feeling Now That Most Of Life with a bittersweet feeling now that most of life behind him The only reason I ave 4 instead of 5 stars is because there is one scene toward the end that is so implausible and out of place in this otherwise authentic story i won t this otherwise authentic story I won t it away but I will say that it is maddening because it s something I ve maybe only experienced from other authors a few other times thank oodness What happened Updike inserted himself and created a scene that was a fantasy for himself personally and not the character or even following the plot I thought it was a cheap move for a cheap personal thrill But all in all I absolutely LOVED this story and found myself immediately involved and absorbed in Harry s life again And Updike s outstanding and skillful writing I will always be looking for Updike to read Always According to the Chinese Zodiac 2017 was year of the Rooster but for ME it was year of Rabbit This year I discovered with Class and Conformity: A Study in Values - With a Reassessment (Midway Reprint) greatlee the brilliance of John Updike and I ve hopped through the four books he wrote about the Class Warfare: Class, Race, and College Admissions in Top-Tier Secondary Schools guy we all love to hate or hate to love Rabbit AngstromI m biddingoodbye to this flawed horndog with misty eyes Somehow from the beginning despite his reprehensible often misogynistic ways and his overuse of the C word I liked the bastard From his family fleeing 50 s his communal 60 s his swinging 70 s to now Rabbit in the 80 sWe re in 1989 the end of the Reagan era when Bill Cosby is still a role model to many Cabbage Patch kids are the rage Melanie Griffiths stars in This last book in the Harry Angstrom cycle by Updike looks at the end of Rabbit s life and disillusionment at the end of the 80s It is worthy of the Pulitzer it Common People: The History of An English Family garnered Updike s second after the eually superb Rabbit is Rich Suffice it to say that there is the same set of characters which we know from the previous books and a nice circular return at the very end An essential read for understanding America on the eve of the 90sIt is an excellent book which explores the themes of aging and death as well as fatherhood in that intimate prose which only Updike knew how to write Where oh where will Rabbito to rest Where will it all all four decades worth of this an all American life culminate and howA In Florida and boringlyThis is a tremendously slow trek through Harry Angstrom s last year and we see the uy eat himself to death and burn bridges with family and friends Eh what s new The sick sad life of the American Male the fourth novel is overkill while it s perfectly nice to revisit some of Rabbit s highlights and mostly low lights how o how can a life be reduced to American history merged so neatly with a deep and personal human experience It doesn t work this attempt to encapsulate life to show how America is as It doesn t work this attempt to encapsulate life to show how America is as a part of it as family isI have only one idea as to why the tetralogy is so lauded today and when each individual novel was first published DAMN GOOD prose What s a life supposed to be asks Rabbit s daughter in law They don t ive you another for comparison But at its best that s wha.
