The book was a little bit laborious to read because there is just too much detail into the background of these characters.
The ending made me hate this book, not because I didn't 'get it,' but because I just didn't care and really had to force through the last 100 pages.
This writing is so beautifully driven by the characters Franzen creates co-mingling with the landscape/time in which they live.

As a book, I would rate this less than one star. It's dreadful. However, as a window prop, the book's hardcover is extremely durable and surprisingly weather resistant.Published 27 days ago by ScoopOwl
I'm late jumping on the wagon of Franzen's admirers. I just finished Corrections last year, and started on Freedom right away. I love both books. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Marusia
