Updike can be hard to read. You have to commit. But if you commit, you won’t regret. The plot of this book, like Rabbit Run, simmers slowly and builds organically to a very satisfying conclusion, and along the way, you get to experience whatever decade Rabbit’s experiencing.
In this case, that’s the Sixties, during the civil rights upheaval. I marveled at the tangle Rabbit gets himself into and delighted in his handling of it (Rabbit tends to just go with the flow of whatever happens in his life).
This is a great book. I highly recommend it.
