I loved this book dearly. We find Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom a decade later in 1980, having settled down again with his wife Janice,and now running his father in law's business Springer Motors. Rabbit is enjoying his middle class life - he has finally made it! The only thorn in his side is his son Nelson...
Don't expect an exciting storyline to this book; it's more like a snapshot of middle class, middle age life for the American 'Everyman'. But it's a picture created in fine prose with vivid metaphors, explicit almost clinical sexual descriptions and rich language that is a feast to the senses. Add to this Updike's great insights into interpersonal relationships, middle age and the complexities of parenting, and there you have it, a modern day classic.
You can listen to this book even if you haven't read the previous two in the series. Just close your eyes, sit back and slide into the world of Harry Angstrom and friends...

Brilliant narration by Arthur Morey
Arthur Morey brilliantly brings to life the inner life and vulnerable, tattered yet resilient humanity of Rabbit and the cast of other characters that Updike fashions with uncanny verisimilitude. Bravo AM. Bravo Audible. These books were made for narration, and AM is a master of his craft, as if he is inhabiting the spirit and body of the novel’s hero.
