Although I enjoyed his prose, I don’t understand why everyone thinks it is the best thing since pizza. Could someone please explain his brilliance to me with some examples, if possible? I would never recommend a John Updike book.

You have missed out on nothing. If you read any vintage novel be it HemingwaySteinbeckor Bellow you will be disappointed if you expect it to look like contemporary fiction. Now, there’s nothing wrong with unlikable characters–I’ve enjoyed many books containing them–but Updike failed to make Rabbit relatable in any way.

It’s terrible, and I regret wasting time on it. The best part is the way Updike uses stream of consciousness to relate what the characters are going through.
I am not sure I will finish the book!
