Books »The Corrections

The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen (2001) It's hard to write about this book with out sounding like an amateur book critic… “Poignant!… “Razor-sharp”… I find myself grabbing a thesaurus, pondering “what means with sentiment but not sentimental?” It's easier for me to say that, despite my wariness about reading this book due to all the hype, I found it to be one of the most fulfilling reading experiences I've had in a long time.

Focusing on a middle class family, the plot is secondary to the precise character development of the Lambert family: pseudo-intellectual Chip, depressed Gary, self destructive Denise, and their parents: the ailing Alfred and stubborn Enid. Highly recommended.
