    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxDISCLAIMER Rabbit Run made me a John Updike fan girlIf Rabbit Run was Updike's anti 1950's American suburbia book then Rabbit Redux is definitely his rage against the 60's Set in 1969 around the time of the moon landing we find Rabbit a little over a decade older and he's not running You could say that karma has caught up to him Rumour has it that Janice who has sobered up and is working at one of her father's car dealerships is giving Rabbit a little taste of his own medicine and has a lover on the sly Though not too sly since everyone seems to know about it including Rabbit's sickly mother who never leaves the houseThere are some pretty kick ass scenes leading up to a big confrontation between Rabbit and Janice that confirmed to me how ingenious John Updike is Then Rabbit's life disintegrates into nothing less than a psychedelic s

    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxI felt this was the weakest of the Rabbit books It covers the 60s and has a particularly reprehensible co star There is lots of violence and hate in this book the hideous underside to the sexual revolution Obviously Updike was not taken in by all the peace love and happiness rhetoric and instead looked at the damage that unbridled sexuality and drug use could have on society here focusing on how it affects Rabbit and his family Still a great read and a must before finishing the cycle with Rabbit is Rich and Rabbit at RestIt was very full of violence and hate and is a turn off to many readers Like I said it is kind of the violent hangover after free love and drugs A conservative and pitiless view of American society No wonder most of his books focus on the later 70s in idyllic New England or Pennsylv

    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxLike the decade of the 60s “Rabbit Redux” is a bit tricky Wee complications arise in so liberal a landscape especially if the everyman in the novel is absurdly conservative Add then a haze proliferated by drugs weed and alcohol and pills in the mix and what you have left over is Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom older but none the wiser This time around ten years after the first Rabbit novel Janice Harry’s sad insipid wife runs away leaving Rabbit with the kid Add then too the elements that made the first book so harsh affairs racism and a wholelotta mysogeny to the national and personal events in that aforementioned decade and RR is sick hilarious and very real employing streamof

    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxThis book is where the Angstroms became the Osbournes without the cracking heavy metal catalogue Or as other reviewers have pointed out it’s where Updike tackles Big uestions of American politics and culture within his sexy literary soap opera framework I also see I was wrong in attempting to empathise with Angstrom—he’s clearly being set up as a Great White Dope where racist and sexist poison accumulates and infects those unfortunate enough to fall under his sway So we open with Rabbit’s domestic downfall Janice has started an affair with a tachycardic Greek and his son Nelson has come to despise pop’s casual racism Then the book veers into political and social territory as Rabbit picks up teenage prostitute Jill and installs her in his home as a live in whore A hippie child spurned by her parents she is the only likeable character in the whole she

    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxAs part of the PopSugar Challenge I opted to listen to #2 in Updike's Rabbit series which takes place in 1969 while Harry Rabbit Angstrom is a supposedly responsible adult enjoying the fact that America is fighting the Viet Cong and lamenting the fact that his wife Janice is leaving him for a guy she works with and is opposed to the war Harry is the Everyman in his opinions and lifestyle It was like a walk down memory lane to hear his arguments about politics and race and he is very opinionated Although this grew tiresome eventually I think even Harry begins to see the error in some of his thinking and allows himself to be influenced by a young woman and black militant he takes into his home because th

    reader ´ Rabbit Redux ↠å citybreakscheap Rabbit ReduxThis is actually cut and pasted from a long comment on someone else's review It focuses primarily on this book altho there are some sentiments in it I'd apply to all the Rabbit storieswarning terribly tl;drBen said Updike swung for the fences; he wanted to represent the 60s in one novel; but it was like he didn’t really immerse himself in it; like he was trying to wri
