The characters in this book are a shallow bunch of very unlikeable people -- there wasn't one I cared about even a tiny bit.
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.

The raving of disgusting people. An exercise in mental masturbation. At least one of the characters should have been remotely likeable.Published 1 day ago by Kate B. Bledsoe

Until I read Freedom. No one writes like Jonathan Franzen. Thank you, JF.
