Well, if you haven't read Freedom, I'd highly recommend it. I read Jonathan Franzen's other super duper popular book The Corrections and loved it too. He has nailed down family and all it encompasses so well.
I stayed up last night till almost 2 to finish Freedom. I was surprised and not surprised at the ending. And at least it was not sappy and not totally predictable, which is always a good thing. And I have to admit I found myself chuckling out loud several times. Franzen's writing is reminiscent of John Irving's, always a good thing.
I may have to check out his other books too.
