Reviews about Month of Sundays (7):
I've read a lot of Updike, getting quickly hooked on the novels in the Rabbit series, Couples, and several others. At his best, Updike has a narrative command, an eye for telling detail, and a pulse for the changes in America over the last half of the twentieth century that's unmatched. This novel has none of that. It's pretentious in the extreme--a thoroughly unconvincing tale where the reader always feels the author's intrusive presence behind the narrator (supposedly a lecherous, defrocked man of the cloth but in truth little more than a literary scarecrow made of scraps pulled not from life but from Updike's voracious reading. Quotes and allusions abound, many of them awkwardly. A huge disappointment!
Updike's ear for language remains acute, but the highly stylized language becomes tiresome before I was halfway through the book. Although an interesting take on "The Scarlet Letter," too many of the allusions fall short of their mark. Quick read, not recommended for readers like me who think that "The Scarlet Letter" is the first great work of American fiction. Everybody else, have at it.
Couldn't relate to the main character or even like him much. The supposed humor of the character and story seemed empty to me. Updike's writing sometimes is amazing then becomes overwrought, like he is just showing off his writing chops. Loved the Rabbit series. This book not so much
As usual, John Updike does not disappoint. This book will slowly draw you in and at times you wonder if you are disgusted with the protagonist or do you feel sorry for him (much like Humbert in Lolita). Then there are times that you feel you are being gas-lighted and seduced. The book touches deeply on human nature and the addiction to the sexual drive. I would recommend it as an easy read, especially for John Updike aficionados.
One of my favorite books. Incredibly intelligent, hilarious, and fun. Brilliantly captures the inner life of a sexually active pastor.
John Updike pours words out like poetry as he portrays the life of a pastor who found love outside of wedlock. In its time, I think this book would be viewed as vulgar and even heretical, but now, it's a fun adventure full of hilarity and wit... just be sure to have a dictionary next to you--his sesquipedalism is quite hard to follow at times.
The book didn't take a month of Sunday's getting to me .
And Mrs. Brazell's shop is in town , so I get help assembling
the pattern I chose out of it easily .

Thanks Amazon ! I'm a happy customer .
I love it. It is playful and thoughtful and funny as hell.
