Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

I must start by saying that few books leave me with wanting to give less than a one star review.  This was one of those books. This was a horrible book. It literally put me to sleep. I have never been so bored in my entire life. Not only was the pace slow and mind numbing, but the story equally made you want to stab out your eyes. Could the characters be anymore self involved? Seriously, your life is not fake, it is what you have in the moment as you live it, each choice will affect your future, even if in the smallest way. I found the book pointless and dull. It seemed that when the author had nothing to say, because really nothing happened.... he would go off on tangents of the characters thoughts, which boring, self centered, unrealistic, and just not anything anyone cares to read about. I really can't say anything for this book. I read it because of other positive reviews and I seriously doubt the reviews given. I don't think I will ever read anything by Richard Yates again, and if I do it will be a long time... I need to recover.
