Freedom: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen
Freedom: A Novel

Paul Sturgis, January 19, 2012

Franzen's book, "Freedom", captures my generation's anxiety, hopefulness, disillusionment, shallowness, idealism, self-absorption and myriad other contradictory traits with great storytelling skill and with seemingly effortless writing skill. This book will be read and debated for generations. It's one of the twenty best novels that I have read in my fifty-nine years, and in centuries to come, will rank with the works of Dickens and Twain in giving a vivid representation of a culture and an era.
