I'm reading In the Beauty of the Lillies now. It's my first Updike. I have to agree with you that the writing is quite good, but the characters are very small people. I've wondered from the beginning why I was still reading it, since I don't think the plot is all that interesting either. I suppose it is the writing style and how deep into the characters' heads I find myself. Or maybe I just have very little to entertain me in Liberia!
