Read full description of the books ისთვიქელი ალქაჯები:I'm suprised by all the reviews of this book that speak of Updike's ability to "get" and fully understand women ... because that seemed to me to be the most blatantly lacking part of this novel. There is not one redeemable female character in this novel. All of the women are vapid, vacuous and more often than not cruel, indifferent and self-absorbed.
I am not being prudish, I'm not suggesting that every female character should be a paradigm of female virtue - but what is Updike saying about women, when all the female characters in this novel are largely abhorrent? Awful mothers, absent lovers - even the females on the periphery (often the jilted, the abandoned, the victims), understandably wind up shrill, judgemental, bitter. Even the men are flat, not explored.
Presumably this is all part of Updike's social commentary on ... something. But what exactly that might be remains, at this point, unclear to me.
