I m suprised by all the reviews of this book that speak of Updike s ability to get and fully understand women because that seemed to me to be the most blatantly lacking part of this novel There is not one redeemable female character in this novel All of the women are vapid vacuous and often than not cruel indifferent and self absorbed I am not being prudish I m not suggesting that every female character should be a paradigm of female virtue but what is Updike saying about women when all the female characters in this novel are largely abhorrent Awful mothers absent lovers even the females on the periphery often the jilted the abandoned the victims understandably wind up shrill judgemental bitter Even the men are flat not explored Presumably this is all part of Updike s social commentary on something But what exactly that might be remains at this point unclear to me

I read this book the way it ought to be read or at least in the circumstances which are best suited for itI was away at a beach house for a weekend in the middle of summer and had pretty much nothing to do but lollygag around smoke cigarettes and read this bookIt s perfect for sunny clear skies and long hours drinking lemonade by the ocean The writing is crisp uick and clear Updike s pretty much encyclopedic when it comes to writing skills and he s doing everything pretty smoothly here aphorisms characters vibrancy plot vividness The stuff is alive You can see it all happening in your mind s eye I was in Connecticut and the book is set in Rhode Island though one Yankee beach town is about the same as another I reckon I ve been to enoughBut there s something very charming no pun intended about reading the lives of some pretty sexy MILFs who have some magical powers spunky libidos and a whole bunch of whistful ruminations about the passage of time and the sagging bounty of youthFun uick a real pleasure to read and kinda hot to bootOnly reason I really gave it two stars rather than three or four the above criteria is than enough to put it up there is because ultimately that s pretty much all I can say about it Not much to take away from this one I say sincewellI haven t actually taken much away from it than merely this
