Review: Roger's VersionUser Review - Thomas J. Molinaro - Goodreads
Very typical of Updike's erudite style, but this one takes you into a very deep religious debate, which is an integral part of the plot. I love every sentence, just about, that Updike has written, so my opinion is a little biased. Great book. Read full review
