great novel - First I have to state that John Updikes novels are not an easy read for a non-native speaker. The language is very elaborative and he writes extremely detailled going off in many colorful and intuitive tangents that are sometimes hard to incorporate.The story slowly unfolds and reveals more and more of Harry Angstrom's (rabbit)ambivalent character living and coping with ordinary american middleclass surroundings. Even though the first rabbit novel (rabbit run) takes place in the fifties it does not seem outdated. The political and social surroundings may have changed over the decades but rabbits core conflict of being torn between the resposibility for his family and the desire to break free are still as up-to-date as they were back then. Harry Angstroms seems like one of us with his settling feeling of mediocrity. With barely 30 he is at the treshold of reorienting his life: his cherished highschool-memories of once having been a basketball star slowly fading and giving way to...
Run, Rabbit, Run - Has life ever seemed to much for you? Do you sometimes just want get away from it all? Well, here is a man that does it all for you, Mr. Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom. He is the man for running away from just about anything that is a conflict for him. Updike investigates this unfortunate soul of the suburban middle-class with the use of many similes, metaphors, motifs, and imagery. In "Rabbit, Run," John Updike's simple language brings reality to the central character of Harry and his boredom and disgust with his present life. In his early years at Mt. Judge High School, Harry was the star basketball player and this game was his life. In the beginning scene of the novel, Rabbit tries to recapture his ex-hero illusion of himself as a basketball star by playing basketball with a group of teenagers on the court. In this scene, we get a taste of Updike's use of rabbit imagery to enhance the rabbit qualities of Harry. When he arrives home, he regains the sour reality...
The Sin of Moral Irresponsibility - The novel is great: well thought-out plot, psychological profundity in portrayal of its characters and their relations, language splendor and richness of images and similes are hallmarks of the oeuvre of John Updike, one of the best writers of the century. The use of present tense in the novel makes its readers not onlookers but participants of the tragical events.The author does not despise his main character Harry 'Rabbit' Angstrom but tries to depict impartially and understand him. Rabbit, a man who once was a first-rate basketball player, in the beginning of his mature life becomes an apprehensive son, indifferent father, inattentive husband, lustful but callous lover. He thinks only about himself, he is ready to run from any obstacle or trouble (his wife, his lover or any person who does not want to do what Harry desires), 'he doesn't care who he hurts or how much'. Gratifying his selfishness and feebleness in solving ethical problems, he leaves behind only...
