    Utilizador anónimo: Both are 500+ page modern epics whose stories originate in the Midwest but this one moves far beyond the territory and scope of Freedom. Represented and sold by same agent as Franzen's book and same UK publisher.

Quit about a third of the way through. I found it very boring.
I mostly hate realistic fiction. ymmv. ( )

Franzen ha escrito una novela en el más puro estilo ochocentista, por extensión y temas, situándola en la USA de Bush. La historia de un montón de personajes que se equivocan continuamente pero acaban sus historias bien. Al menos hasta donde Jonathan nos permite conocer sus vidas.

Wow, what an awful, tedious book. Good writers can use boring, unlikable scenes and dialogue to make interesting portraits of realistic human beings, who are after all frequently boring and unlikeable. But this book has so many absolutely interminable stretches that it has to be some kind of self-therapy or roman à clef, it's just baffling to me that anyone would spend years and years writing a book like this if they didn't really identify with the determinedly unlovable people in it. Case in point: the endless and painful "diary" sections written by Patty, the main female lead. John Dolan (whose scathing review of The Corrections I honestly tried to not let prejudice me) accused Franzen of having serious female issues and really, the amount of effort Franzen put into making Patty and essentially every other woman in the book as insufferable as he could was pretty weird. Maybe it wouldn't have jumped out at me so much if Dolan hadn't put it in my head, but when the only likeable female character died offscreen in a car crash I was not surprised at all. Then again nobody's likeable, the whole book is just dull epigones being assholes to each other for page after page in wearying detail, and though there were a few good parts where I thought Franzen was going turn it around and make all of this pain worthwhile, no dice. Notably poorly-written scenes: Richard the musician's "edgy" interview with a high school student, Walter the husband's econazi stage rant, the bit when Patty thinks about cheating on Walter while reading a parallel part in War and Peace and actually points it out to the reader, and above all the hilariously nonsensical ending. After finishing it I tried to find some positive reviews to see what I missed, but all I saw were awed raves about how zeitgeisty it was, as if no one else in the country is capable of writing about how fucked up we are with such up-to-the-minute references. If you want to read a good book about flaws and failures you should read A Confederacy of Dunces, where it seems like the author actually had fun writing his book, or was actually able to feel anything other than lifeless, desiccated contempt for the world and everyone in it. I almost hope I never get old enough to find this book's world even remotely realistic or meaningful, it would depress the shit out of me. ( )

Funny. Honest. Interesting. I was so rooting for Walter and Patty to reunite and I was not disappointed. Three cheers for marriage. ( )

I mostly enjoyed Jonathan Franzen's novel "Freedom," which plows along with the lives and loves of a fairly dysfunctional family. The characters are interesting and deeply flawed people, which helps propel the story along.

I felt it wasn't all that different from "The Corrections" though.... Franzen definitely has a very recognizable style of storytelling. ( )

One keeps waiting for something that will make these flat characters develop in some way, and finally the Nice Man is struck by a great blow of fate. But rather than write his way through it, Franzen suspends things just before the moment of impact, then resumes Walter’s story six years later—updating us with the glib aside that the event in question “had effectively ended his life.” A writer’s got to know his limitations, but this stratagem is clumsy enough to make one want to laugh for the first time in the book. It certainly beats the part where a wedding ring is retrieved from a bowl of feces.

Franzen is an amateur ethnographer impersonating a fiction writer. His novel is overstuffed with finger-puppet characters and the clutter of contemporary life: there's no reason to know that someone is wearing "Chinese-made sneakers" or that someone else watches Pirates of the Caribbean during a transatlantic flight. Freedom is crammed as well with rants passed off as dialogue and dialogue that either serves no narrative purpose or reeks of research done in the lifestyle pages of the New York Times.

The freedom of Freedom isn't freedom of choice, it's freedom from it; not an expansion but a narrowing. The book's movement is from the abyss of the abstract to the surety of the concrete, from the potential to the actual. You get there not by reinventing yourself in the American vein, by hatching a plan or heading west or donning a disguise. You do it by going home again, by seeing, as if for the first time, what you've already done, and claiming it as your own.

I didn't buy one of the characters, I didn't buy one of the plot twists, I found the stuff about a Halliburton-esque company rather convoluted and I was completely absorbed by the rest. Without question, Freedom is a book that grabs hold of you. When I was in the middle, I thought of its characters even while I wasn't reading about them, and when I was reading it, I read several lines aloud to my husband.

Go together, you precious winners all; your exultation partake to everyone. I, an old turtle, will wing me to some withered bough, and there, my mate, that's never to be found again, lament till I am lost.

The news about Walter Berglund wasn't picked up locally -- he and Patty had moved away to Washington two years earlier and meant nothing to St. Paul now -- but the urban gentry of Ramsey Hill were not so loyal to their city as not to read the New York Times.
