[Novel] Babbitt (Sinclair Lewis)

Babbitt

Book

A sarcastic representation of American materialistic values in early 20th century, and the vacuousness of such life. Kind of reminded me of American Psycho minus the murders.

You can grab the paperback or audiobook here.

Positive:
Negative:
Flowing, pleasant prose
Not as much a story as just a report of two years of the protagonist’s life
Likable, profound characters
Can feel a bit dull and plotless at times
Thought-provoking on what gives life meaning
