Quite possibly one of the most bone-chilling and truly horrifying novels I have ever read. EVER. This is not a drama. It is straight up nightmare, a living and breathing heinous nightmare that pounced on the chest of 1950 suburbia and crushed every single resident to death, slowly. [shivers] Seriously, this beautifully horrific story captures every single thing that went maddeningly wrong with the 1950s in the US of A (and we’re STILL trying to fight off). Throughout the entire novel I was on the edge of my seat, nail-biting, wanting to scream/cry/shout/hug. Moreover, I can’t believe I loved it so much. It encompasses all that I despise in stories and yet, I loved this one so much. Wow, folks. Just Wow.

As Tennessee Williams describes Revolutionary Road: “If more is needed to make a masterpiece in modern American fiction, I am sure I don't know what it is.” Wow.
