Read from December 22 to 29, 2011

I mostly really liked this. I get what all the hype is about, and I think Franzen is a really gifted writer. It only gets four stars rather than five because of the very draggy 200 pages or so in the middle. And because I just kinda wish that the view of human nature here was not quite so bleak. There are glimpses of redemption, but overall, just, bleak.

I will read Freedom, though, and fairly soon as my book club is reading it. So that should be an interesting discussion.
