    Rabbit Run ebook Öread ↠ citybreakscheap Rabbit RunThis was the first and shortest of the Rabbit books from Updike I think that the last two are better because Updike had 30 40 years of maturity and writing under his belt but this book grabs you and doesn't let you go and makes you beg the the next one The original concept behind the series is that Updike describes the life of Harry Rabbit Angstrom in 1959 in Rabbit Run 1969 in Rabbit Redux 1979 in Rabbit is Rich and 1989 in Rabbit at Rest There is even an epilogue Rabbit Remembered in the short story collection Licks of Love Back to Rabbit Run Harry Angstrom is a tall man of his times About 23 years old and married to an alcoholic woman The outlook is rather grim no spoilers but it is so well written and realistic that the characters really leap from the pages and you want to root for Rabbit even w

    Rabbit Run ebook Öread ↠ citybreakscheap Rabbit RunYou know what would be nice is if there was a wikipedia for life and every time you met someone you could just give it a glance and see if you know you really want to be associated with that person Sure it would backfire it would reveal your prejudices and narrow mindedness your circle of friends might become a lot less varied and interesting On the other hand you'd never have to fake a conversation about football again and you could easily avoid the total assholes like Rabbit AngstromI didn't finish this book I read 30 or 40 pages and I can't even remember the writing because never before have I hated a character so much I am someone who never notices the annoying characters in books or
