4.0 out of 5 stars A slow start, but what a finish!, 10 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Rabbit is Rich (Paperback)
Here we are back with Rabbit, and I found it a slow start after Rabbit Redux. But it all feels right - Rabbit has taken over his father-in-law's business, has moved back in with his wife and is living with his mother-in-law.
As can be expected, Rabbit is not happy, and his realisation that Nelson (his son) is encroaching on his "territory" makes him angry. A mid-life crisis? No, Rabbit has had too many crises; this is just Rabbit kicking against mortality.
His golf club cronies provide light relief, but the set piece involves them on a Caribbean vacation and more than justifies the slowness of the start. As ever, Updike's sensuous use of prose is beautiful, over-rich but it works for me.
