Jonathan Franzen's Freedom

I have to make this quick, because I have to get back to the book! I just realized that I started reading this morning and now, around 6, I'm still at it. I took a
break to ride the exercycle, but read while on it. I forced myself to eat...while
reading. I love this book! Enough has been written about what a great writer Franzen
is and i loved his first book that I read, The Corrections. Also about a family but
a different kind.this guy writes better dialogue than anyone. His characters become
your friends and you can't get enough of them, even when they are doing stupid things. He writes a long big book because there is so much to say about the world we
live in, but mostly because he documents these very personal lives and you need the
time to spend with with them.
I have been neglecting my blog because of the radio thing, and write on Facebook because it's quick...but if anyone is reading this...take my advice and get Freedom.
You'll thank me.
