    "Are you reading through the alphabet and arrived to authors beginning with the letter "U"? Well, if so, John Updike should keep you entertained for quite some time, as he's very prolific. You might want to begin with the first book in this series, Rabbit, Run. But this is a classic too. "

    "The last of four Rabbit books. Must read for those who have read the other Rabbit books. It also works as a stand-alone novel but is more enjoyable if you have read the other three."

    "With a name like "The Lonely Polygamist," you know its gotta be good. And for the most part, it is. The solution definitely fits the topic, though whether or not it makes much sense is up to you. Who cares that much what the authors last name is? Tell me more about the polygamy! "
