(Unfinished ~ 18%)
Disappointing! After hearing so many wonderful things about Franzen, Freedom was quite a let down. While it started off decently, I didn't care about the plot or the characters, and I didn't find the writing noteworthy. I know it is supposed to be satirical and paint a dark portrait about (or hang a useful mirror to) American life, but the work was not sufficiently interesting for me to even finish it.
