Hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs since it's publication. Get this from a library! Revolutionary road. [Richard Yates] -- In the hopeful s , Frank and April Wheeler appear to be a model couple: bright, beautiful. --William Styron From the moment of its publication in , Revolutionary Road was hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative.
Sounds like a downer, and it is at times, but it's so beautify written and relevant. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Julie from Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates This is definitely an "it's not you, it's me" book. The writing was lovely. I thought he captured the setting, tone, etc.
And I can imagine for its time, this book was pretty groundbreaking, and I can see why it's had a resurgence of popularity in the last decade or so. My main issue with this book is that it didn't have any characters I could root for; not ones I could love or hate. They just sort of existed. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Kel8 from Very well done It is probably not going to ever be my favorite book, but it is definitely an excellent piece of writing.
It perfectly explores the strange wasteland that was the American suburbs and general culture when the classic American Dream and the bohemian lifestyle were often clashing together and falling apart. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by VenusRosewater from Insightful The book about young revolutionaries who end up doing the opposite of what they set out to do is simple but rich.

I don't think it's a depressing book as people think. A beautiful book with painful insights. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Banana from Excellent read A deep, moving book that explores the dynamics of expectations people have for their lives and how often reality falls short. You will need to read this book with a tissue. This book is incredibly depressing, even macabre at times, but incredibly moving and so well told.
The story of the Wheelers, a bright young couple unable to reach the high aspirations they have for themselves leaves one feeling bleak, almost empty. By no means a feel-good book, but one that is uncommonly insightful and brave in it's choice of subject matter. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarah from Very touching!
Reading this book really makes me want to see the movie. Its such a realistic, yet extremely emotional story. I loved it. A classic. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by Judekyle from Depressing, but Brilliant Here's a warning for anyone planning to read Revolutionary Road: don't come to it for entertainment. Richard Yates' meditation on '50s era, suburban America is not enjoyable. It is challenging, beautifully written and achieves a moment of true brilliance in Chapter Seven of Part Three, but that one victorious moment is bittersweet at best.
Revolutionary Road is full of banal people with the exception of two , and those banal people are the people we know in our real lives, the people we meet every day. The Children Act.
