I'd give this maybe 3.5. I've never read anything by Richard Ford. Actually, embarrassed that I was not aware of him until I read a positive review of his most recent novel in the NYT and wanted to try his work. Someone said in notes that Ford, or perhaps this Bascombe series, reminds them of Updike's Rabbit series. I can definitely see some of that, but maybe also see similarities to Russo in writing style. Liked this but did not love it. Still looking forward to reading Independence Day, which won Pulitzer and comes next in series
