Revolutionary Road - Richard Yates Oh I loved this book so much! When I first started reading it I thought "OK, this book is about a couple" and then it became about their relationship, and then about their flaws and problems, but then I realised this book is about so much more. It focuses on everything from hopes and aspirations, work life, suburban American life, family values all the way to feminism. There's literally so much that makes you think and gets you wrapped up in the lives of the characters. The book is so brilliantly written, the author having such great skill at foreshadowing in particular. A must read.
