Whew! I'm almost halfway through Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, but I can already safely say that if you are looking for a juicy, sink-your-teeth-into kind of summer read you need look no further. I've stayed up past midnight three nights in a row hooked, hooked I tell you, to this story. Not uplifting by any means, but real and raw. What are you reading pray tell??? Because the only salvation for my disappointment when I finish Freedom will be to know something equally satisfying is waiting in the wings.
