According to the Chinese Zodiac 2017 was year of the Rooster but for ME it was year of Rabbit This year I discovered with great glee the brilliance of John Updike and I ve hopped through the four books he wrote about the guy we all love to hate or hate to love Rabbit AngstromI m bidding goodbye to this flawed horndog with misty eyes Somehow from the beginning despite his reprehensible often misogynistic ways and his overuse of the C word I liked the bastard From his family fleeing 50 s his communal 60 s his swinging 70 s to now Rabbit in the 80 sWe re in 1989 the end of the Reagan era when Bill Cosby is still a role model to many Cabbage Patch kids are the rage Melanie Griffiths stars in Working Girl women have shoulder pads in every article of clothing you get the picture Oh and there s AIDS and piles of cocaine tooHe s 56 going on 90 He s got a bum ticker and for the whole book we are painfully aware of each constriction each suffocating breath It s clear this guy s claim on life is tenuous I for one was begging him to stop for the love of god eating dry roasted cashews but he wouldn t listen You wouldn t think that with plaue filled ventricles he d be able to misbehave as he has in other books But don t worry he does as never beforeHe s spending half the year in Florida with Janice chasing the perfect golf swing Meanwhile Nelson the most dislikable annoying character I can remember reading EVER is growing his rat tail and sniffing up the profits at Springer Motors like a good sonRabbit is comfortable but only medium happy at best With age it is hard to say that he has acuired wisdom though his internal monologues still boast his insightful commentary and observationsI loved being back in the Angstrom family s world as dysfunctional as it is This book focusing on mortality has many excellent parts my favourite being a perilous scene on the ocean with Rabbit and his granddaughter However I felt that many parts were really rambling and repetitive I could have done without much of the roadside commentary every single time he got in a car or the very very detailed recollections of Brewer in its hey day The other thing that has stuck in my craw is the unbelievability of one of the main plot points in this book which I ll have to discuss under a spoiler tag for obvious reasons view spoilerRabbit and his daughter in law Pru have the sex Yep It just stretches the suspension of disbelief for me so much on BOTH sides that the I think about it the contrived it seems It goes above and beyond fucked upness that I can take It also treads a weird uasi incestual line that I can safely say I have OD ed on this year in many books and can definitely do without Is this the best we can do Pulitzer Prize Literary Gods hide spoiler

Pulitzer Prize winner 1991 Oh my gosh I can t believe I m saying goodbye to Harry Rabbit Angstrom and Janice and the whole family This was the fourth and final book in the Rabbit series I seriously hated to see it end It was so good I just zoomed through 500 pages There s not much to say here that hasn t already been said Updike had an incredible gift for observing life and portraying it in a way that we can all relate to This particular novel was following Harry at age 55 but not in as good of shape physically mentally as the average 55 year old male Lots of moments of reflection on life just like the other 3 novels but with a bittersweet feeling now that most of life is behind him The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because there is one scene toward the end that is so implausible and out of place in this otherwise authentic story I won t give it away but I will say that it is maddening because it s something I ve maybe only experienced from other authors a few other times thank goodness What happened Updike inserted himself and created a scene that was a fantasy for himself personally and not the character or even following the plot I thought it was a cheap move for a cheap personal thrill But all in all I absolutely LOVED this story and found myself immediately involved and absorbed in Harry s life again And Updike s outstanding and skillful writing I will always be looking for Updike to read Always
