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.

Freedom is the story of an American family going through the ecstasies and agonies of being in a family. This was just as good as The Corrections.Published 6 days ago by Kitty L. Garner
Stupendous and deeply moving. A magnificent and profoundly affecting work of fiction, flawless and incredible. A novel whose last words are read in slow motion. Wow!!!Published 9 days ago by Tom Hunter
