16 of 48 Books read

Remember I am reading 48 books this year before my 48th birthday. This is book 16.

16. Rabbit Redux Rabbit Redux by John Updike

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
The second book in the rabbit series and probably the last one I read. Updike's books are kind of depressing.

In the first book, Rabbit, Run you read as the main character Rabbit, deals with his faultering marriage and dead end life. So, he runs. In this book it's his wifes turn to run.

I had heard that John Updike was a world class author and he recently passed away, so I wanted to read some of his works. I've read two, so now I'm done.

Does he venture into other subjects? Maybe I just need to get away from the rabbit series.

I was thinking of adding this series to my list.... now I won't. Lifes to short to be depressed.

You know, thats a really great goal. I try to pick up a book when I can and enjoy the (few) chances I get to flip a page or two. Very relaxing and rewarding at the same time!

Oy...sounds depressing. I will stick to my teen vampire books for now. LOL

Interesting. When he passed, I watched something on 20/20 about him. Glad I didn't end up buying any of his stuff!!
