Genre = Novel
Rabbit is a nickname for the main character. As the animal is quick to do, the nickname sticks well with basketball and life. Rabbit ran away from life. A premature midlife crisis made worse and worse. Others try to help Rabbit, and do not give up on him. Rabbit gives up on others, but not without remorse. There is freedom in running away, rather than being caged in a particular situation.
The book is not well written or may have been written in a poor fashion to represent the story. The narrative is aimless, as is the main character. Random thoughts cloud the book causing a problem with continuity and clarity of action.
