    " Lewis mercilessly rips apart the middle class life in a biggish town. I still wonder whether he ever knew a good person in his life. He just writes about self-satisfied hypocrites. But it definitely made me think about my own life. Do I just follow the conventions of my immediate surroundings, or do I do what I think right for the right reasons? Anyway, it's an uncomfortable book, but good food for thought. "

    " SInclair Lewis nailed small town America in the early 1900's. The novel provides insights into prohibition, politics, murder and mayhem, love and lust. George F. Babbitt - wishy washy citizen struggling with a mid-life crisis in search of himself. "

    " I have never forgotten the way "classes" are portrayed herein "

    " Babbitt started out as a real bastard, and by the end of the book came around to being almost a decent guy. He was flawed, but sometimes realized it and at least started questioning his actions. Although he is back to a lot of his old organizations, he does end up giving his son some good advice on life. Sinclair Lewis gives does a really good job of character development, but although enjoying this book, it was on the verge of dragging a bit. "
