Bu kitabı kesinlikle çok sevdim. Stalin tarafından Sibirya'ya gönderilen Litvanya halkının bir hikayesi. Tarihin iyi bilinmeyen bir kısmı hakkında bu hikayeyi okumayı çok sevdim.

4.5 stars. Revolutionary Road is a beautifully written novel, and my first experience of Richard Yates's writing. I can now wholeheartedly say that I will be seeking out his other novels, as this was an engrossing and heartfelt read. Frank and April Wheeler are a young, idealistic couple who live in a lovely suburban house on Revolutionary Road with their two young children. April is a housewife and Frank works in something computer-related in a dull, faceless office in the city. They both take pride in the fact that they are not like everyone else in their neighbourhood, that they are somehow more interesting, intellectual, honest, etc etc etc. Of course, as we progress through the novel, we see the cracks beginning to form in their carefully constructed relationship, apparently set off by an argument right from the get go. This novel gave me a lot of conflicting emotions as I progressed through the book. In terms of likeable characters, this book had none, and April and Frank are equally and individually completely frustrating, pitiful and hate-worthy at the best of times. I found my loyalties shifting a fair amount through the book. It is sold largely from Frank's perspective, but that didn't stop me at times siding with April. However, a great deal of the time I wanted to grab each individual character and shake them to try and wake them up to their petty, ridiculous ideas and actions. I saw the movie adaptation of this novel quite a few years ago, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio, and couldn't help but picture them in the roles as I read the book (particularly Leo as Frank, he just sticks with me as an actor). However, I didn't remember a great deal of the little details from that viewing, so a lot of the novel was very new and fresh for me which I enjoyed. I will definitely be re-watching the film at some point now, with my more in-depth knowledge of these characters. Yates has a very wonderful way of making you stick with characters, even if you intensely dislike them the majority of the time, because for some reason you care. His writing was beautiful and subtle, and makes you really feel personally involved in the characters' lives, even though at times you feel like someone looking in at the window due to the highly constructed personalities of Frank and April. I would definitely recommend this book, I can't imagine anyone disliking it. The writing, the simple but poignant story... it really is a winning combination.
