Revolutionary Road

RevolutionaryRoadBehind this inviting title we find a brilliant story about a whole generation. The Wheelers are the differing voice in a world where success is measured by property and marriage with kids is the ideal of happiness. But living in the suburbs and having an ordinary job without prospects was not what Frank Wheeler expected when he was young. Neither did April: smart and bright, her imposed role as the perfect housewife makes her reach unexpected limits of suffocation.

But they won’t realize to what extent society has trapped them until they try to escape from it.

With an elegant and plain prose, Richard Yates has achieved a timeless masterpiece with magnificent characters and superb dialogues. Definitely a novel that you can not miss.

You can also enjoy the film starred by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
