    What did you think of Freedom?? I read it last summer, and Franzen’s The Corrections the winter before that.

      I am actually still reading it. I really enjoy his style of writing, and I feel the character development is strong. Which book did you enjoy more? And, what was your overall reaction to Freedom?

        I enjoyed Freedom a lot more. I love his style of writing, and I think The Corrections is an incredible book; I just didn’t enjoy its darkness much. You’re right, the character development is one of his greatest strengths. My overall reaction to Freedom, I think, was that it ended the way it should have. There were parts that were somewhat shocking or unsettling, but Franzen doesn’t sugarcoat things. It’s all very real.
