Is anyone reading Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom"?


Fabricio the Guido

Recommended Posts

Just started it the other day and I cannot put it down. It is as good as "Corrections." I am now thinking of comparing it to Buddenbrooks or War & Peace, but I think the themes of enviromentalism and the end of the Left wing politics anchor it more closely to our time. Big themes or the detail of family history or both?

Several copies available across the borough libraries, including Dulwich, but all the Dulwich copies are out (though two more are on order):

Same here. My sister appeared to think I'd rather have a set of bongo drums :))


ETA: I really enjoyed The Corrections
