Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

Let me just say that I take no issue with Jonathan Franzen personally. I’ve never met him. Were I to see Jonathan Franzen in real life, I would probably say, “Hey, that guy looks like Jonathan Franzen,” and I would go about my day. Unfortunately, Freedom didn’t do it for me. It is a very trying book if you are the kind of person who is not obsessed with birds.
