    " This is one of those books that almost set me in a nervous breakdown of anxiousness about the ills of society, kind of like reading a novelesque foucault. Once in, I could think of nothing else but this book. Once out, I felt like the entire experience of reading it (feverishly) had been my own experience. "

    " I read this long ago in a course on "American Culture." I loved it. It was so fun to hate the main character. He was like one of the "phonies" from Catcher in the Rye. I'd like to re-read it sometime. It may not be so black-and-white as my teenage impression. "

    " I enjoyed this book. It took me a little while to get into it but, once the story got rolling, I was very interested. The main character, George Babbit, is not necessarily likable but he has a certain charm. I wanted to continue reading to find out what he was up to. His most annoying trait (as well as the trait I was most intrigued with) was his hypocrisy. "

    " A fair warning of what your life might become if you didn't follow your dreams, ideals or desires and just let your self be governed by what the majority thinks. Certainly might be a fine option for anyone thinking about adjusting to the "realities of life" whether a youth or a parent. However, well written, the book has aged a bit, but not as much as you would think for a time piece from close to a hundred years ago. There might be books that more directly speaks to the concens of today, but Babbitt is still scary in its seemingly eternal subject matter. "
