Sorry Franzen...when I don't feel enriched or uplifted in any way by a book, I gotta let 'em go...

Just a thought for next time: maybe try something not so epic, and maybe not so many POVs in one novel for random lengths? By the time I dropped this there were three of them: first person plural, first person singular, and third person limited. Try one next time, with about half the narrative.
