Everybody run!

Finished Rabbit, Run this afternoon. Very impressive. I'm moving on to Redux immediately. But the purpose of this post is to highlight the following quote from an amazon review of the book, presented without comment:

"Twenty pages into this book, I was appalled by what the main character, Rabbit, does - runs away from his wife. I was especially surprised later on when much adultery occurs.
