You read it here first! Mumsnet's Book Club pages are teeming with author webchats, reviews - and top freebies.
I've just finished this. Anyone else read / reading it? What do you think? I think I really liked it, but it kind of irritated me too! So I'm not sure yet what I thought really. I can't work out whether he's a genius or not!
Oh Lord. I am mid-irritation and already know what you mean. He IS a genius but I only know that from reading The Corrections, twice. Freedom is not a patch on it.
Can I ask if you have read the Slap, and if so what you thought? I enjoyed the corrections, but am ambivalent about the Slap. Not yet read Freedom, but probably will when it is in paperback.
The Slap is someone else. Agree freedom disappoointing after Corrections
Very different author - Australian of Greek origin, but he has been compared with Franzen.
How disappointing, I loved The Corrections.
I thought the Slap was pretty crap! (As blouseenthusiast says not by Franzen - some Australian chappy.)
I'm about half way through and I am loving it.That man sure knows how to put a sentence together
Stop press.... I have read from around page 300 to 500 since i last posted and things are really coming together. I've had my first laugh out loud and a couple of moments of utter Franzen magic.
Just bought Freedom - am saving it for spa break next month.Loved the Corrections.
Just finished it.Really REALLY loved it.I'm a bit sad now
