Rabbit, Run is the book that established John Updike as one of the major American novelists of his—or any other—generation. Its hero is Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, a onetime high-school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife and son. He is twenty-six years old, a man-child caught in a struggle between instinct and thought, self and society, sexual gratification and family duty—even, in a sense, human hard-heartedness and divine Grace. Though his flight from home traces a zigzag of evasion, he holds to the faith that he is on the right path, an invisible line toward his own salvation as straight as a ruler’s edge.
Information from Goodreads.com
I do not recommend this for people who strictly only want to read YA style or paranormal. But to everyone else... everyone who wants to read as much as they can or learn a great way to write. This book is for you. It teaches you to slow down and take a few minutes. I have learned so much from this book writing-wise. The content is intense, and it is definitely not for the younger ones reading this, but I think this is a book that every reader should at least pick up. It has some incredibly slow moments, but that is life and life is what this book is trying to capture. The raw beautiful pain of life.
