The provocative novel about sex in suburbia, striking in its complete sexual frankness and rightly praised as an artful, seductive, savagely graphic portrayal of love, marriage, and adultery in America.
“Couples [is] John Updike’s tour de force of extramarital wanderlust.” (The New York Times Book Review)
“Trapped in their cozy catacombs, the couples have made sex by turns their toy, their glue, their trauma, their therapy, their hope, their frustration, their revenge, their narcotic, their main line of communication and their sole and pitiable shield against the awareness of death.” (Time)
“Ingenious... If this is a dirty book, I don’t see how sex can be written about at all.” (Wilfrid Sheed, The New York Times Book Review)

Could not finish
I couldn't finish this book. It was very boring and drawn out. It takes pages to get to the point of a conversation that doesn't matter for the rest of the book. I was recommended this novel by multiple friends and am very disappointed I spent money on it.
