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.
This writing is so beautifully driven by the characters Franzen creates co-mingling with the landscape/time in which they live.
