    One thought on “Rabbit Novels: Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at Rest”

    1. Updike is an amazingly talented author who develops characters so precisely, so deeply that the reader feels an intimate knowledge about the characters The books are told through the point of view of Harry Rabbit Angstrom, the tertiary characters become intimate their motives and interactions consistent throughout the 40 year span in the Rabbit series.Rabbit himself is a flawed, very human man The likability of the protagonist is arguable As arguable as liking humans themselves Updike presents f [...]

    2. Rabbit Angstrom, the fallen, philandering, small town basketball star, has settled into a sour stability harried husband, beleaguered father, pushy businessman And if that life subscribes to the stuff of maudlin TV melodrama, it s of little consequence by these books, Updike has switched his focus to the examination of a colourful, cockeyed character America Travel on a long descriptive wave through the oil obsessed Seventies Rich to the Reaganomic Eighties Rest These are pointillist time piec [...]

    3. For all of Harry Rabbit Angstrom s faults, you can t help but enjoy the third and fourth Rabbit novels I think I got sold on reading these novels because of how descriptive they are My only issue while reading these novels was my continual disgust for Nelson s character It got to the point where if his character would say anything, I d have to skim over it.In Rabbit is Rich , Rabbit is now running the Springer Motors dealership and is navigating upper class America with his wife Janice And his s [...]

    4. Now that I have finally finished Updike s Rabbit cycle, reading the fourth and final novel in the series, I think I truly appreciate and am awed by it s somewhat epic proportions Not only is Updike s writing dense and beautiful, with fantastic description he describes things in the most interesting way, yet completely familiarly and the reader knows exactly what he means or at least this reader does but over the course of all four novels he spans such as wide swath of American history from polit [...]

    5. 16 August 2010 Finished Rabbit is Rich today Updike has an amazing voice He s been able to capture generations and American middle class nuance with the same character I will begin Rabbit at Rest tomorrow.5 September 2010 Finished Rabbit at Rest Wow He s got it all He s got nothing It s life Beautiful.

    6. The Rabbit novels are a collective masterpiece It might be the first time I found something deplorable about all of the characters While I liked the characters, I never once felt sympathetic to the plights they got themselves into And I think that s why I liked these novels so muche flaws are glaring and yet they are no different, no better than anyone else.

    7. The Rabbit books are as astonishing a literary achievement as I ve ever encountered You ll learn about American life from 1960 to 1990 in these four books than you will from a college course on the subject.

    8. I first read Updike s Rabbit novels about 15 years ago, and liked them very much then Just reread these as well as Rabbit Run and enjoyed them even .

    9. Rabbit So good And, bravo to Updike for bringing us along on this character s winding life journey Worthwhile literature.
