This book boggles me. It annoys me and sometimes I think I hate it, but I cannot stop reading it. I have a suspicion that Franzen is annoying me (the generic reader) deliberately, and I have great respect for him as an author, so I will indulge my compulsion. But I also feel certain that I will be just as annoyed when I finish it.

J.S. Cook Franzen is annoying. Just accept it. It will bring you peace. You turned the pages because he is a very good writer...but his characters suck....then at the end of the book, you're like, wow...that's a very dysfunctional relationship...why did I spend so much energy reading it?
