Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates book review

Author: Richard Yates
Release Date: February 1st 2001
Publisher: Methuen
Pages: 346
Rating: Dropped
Buy At: Barnes and Noble , Amazon

In the hopeful 1950s, Frank and April Wheeler appear to be a model couple: bright, beautiful, talented, with two young children and a starter home in the suburbs. Perhaps they married too young and started a family too early. Maybe Frank's job is dull. And April never saw herself as a housewife. Yet they have always lived on the assumption that greatness is only just around the corner. But now that certainty is about to crumble.With heartbreaking compassion and remorseless clarity, Richard Yates shows how Frank and April mortgage their spiritual birthright, betraying not only each other, but their best selves.


I just didn't have the courage to finish the book.  I made a terrible mistake and watched the movie first which was really depressing and then by page 30 i lost interest in the book.
