Freedom

Freedom - Jonathan Franzen At about 1/10th of the way in I'm still not 100% committed to it... I get enough gossip and drama without having to read about it too, but we'll see how it goes.... A little better than half way through and...It's too much for me. There is just so much gratuitous in this book. I don't get it. I'm embarrassed to have read this far and have no desire to go further.
