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.

4.0 Revolutionary Road
I read Revolutionary Road for the first time last year and I was deeply impressed by it.

4.5 Droga do szczęścia
Genialnie ukazany rozpad małżeństwa, rozpaczliwe próby znalezienia jakiś wspólnych celów przez dwoje ludzi, którzy po latach zdali sobie sprawę, że nic ich już nie łączy. I zderzenie z rzeczywistością, że niczym nie różnią się od pogardzanych przez nich nudnych małżeństw z przedmieść. Gorąco polecam...

3.5 Droga do szczęścia
Małżeństwo z dwójką dzieci. Dwoje ludzi, którzy niegdyś byli w sobie szaleńczo zakochani. Teraz popadli w tak znaną wszystkim parom z dłuższym stażem rutynę.

4.5 Heartbreaking, depressing... and beautiful
Richard Yates' Revolutionary Road will totally ruin your day, meaning it'll bum the hell out of you. But it's so well written. This was the first novel I've read by Yates, as I knew him more from his short stories (which I'm still waiting for an ebook copy of his amazing collection dammit!). It's ...
