"Endpoint" is a worthwhile read
Who am I to "review" John Updike's work? What I can say is, these are the viewpoints of a very sensitive man. Like his other works, these are a definite observation that is worth reading. These writings come as his body, but not his mind, is slowing down. Yet they are lively & not morbid or gloomy. I can recognize my Grandfather's habits, or my Dad's way of looking at ordinary things, like his broken computer. I could identify with his remarks about the life that is passing him by - just a little. There was some looking back & some looking ahead, but mostly he's looking around & showing that he's still alive. Maybe that makes it easier to read.

John Updike as Poet
This last book of John Updike lets the reader go back to Updike's early beginnings.
We see a great novelist asa brilliant poet. Writer of archetypes, American protestant questions of
life, sex, and death. Most of all the Updike of Pennsylvania and a tribute to his own
childhood, his early fiction and to friendship.
