I enjoyed "Rabbit is Rich" but this one was a drag. Rabbit is obese and doesn't exercise. He has the inevitable heart attack. In nerve deadening detail, the reader learns about his hospitalization and watches him die. Sounds cheery, right? I cannot believe that anyone would spend a year or more writing such a novel. Who was he writing for? Anyone who has ever had a family member get sick will find nothing new in here that he/she has not experienced in their own life. There are no insights here to make it all worthwhile as Rabbit and his family are not especially thoughtful people, so we learn nothing new about mortality and sickness. Updike writes well but this is totally lacking in the humour and sly observations about middle class life which made "Rabbit is Rich" such a good read.
