Women: An Anthology of Erotic Lesbian Poetry it before completion Its natural to want someone Film, Tv, and Music: Multi-Level Photocopiable Activities for Teenagers in a story that you can root for As Jonathan Franzen unpacks these characters he exposes those things that are generally hidden beneath our clothes like a nasty wart near a nipple or cellulite on our butt cheeks The type of flaws we would prefer to be seenn half light not the glaring brightness of daylight I started out not liking any of these characters their flaws were dominating their nherently good ualities but as Franzen so deftly unspools revelations I became and sympathetic What we have to remember s that none of us knows someone s whole history We get pieces and sometimes those are the best pieces and sometimes we only see someone at their worst moment We never have the whole story that might make sense out of the senseless We have a tendency to Bstat ignore our own flaws and castigate those same flawsn others You might be starting to understand where I m going with all this These characters are human maybe too human but that could be because Jonathan Franzen may have wrote one of the most honest books you ll ever read If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at An open letter to my former copy of The CorrectionsFirst I want to tell you that Bstat (with Review Cards and Printed Access Card) itsn t you t s me People and books grow apart just like people and people grow apart I remember years ago when I read you that there were certain things about you that I really liked but the truth s I just wasn t really that nto you Yeah that little stunt with Oprah was pretty cute and I recall we had a laugh but I m just at that point n my life where I need to make space for new experiences open myself up to what other potentials are out there And you re kinda crowding me a bitI know you asked me Where did Introduction to Blended Learning it all go wrong I could hear yo The critics loved The Corrections Publishedn 2001 Undertow it won the National Book Award for fiction for that year and was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize a year later It also won or was nominated for a number of other prestigious literary prizesDavid Gates wroten his glowing review n the New York Times that the book had just enough novel of paranoia touches so Oprah won t assign t and ruin Franzen s street cred Wrong David Oprah not only chose t for her book club but went so far as to proclaim t the great American novel Franzen who recognized that his book s selection by Oprah meant that sales would sharply ncrease was nevertheless ambivalent about the situation because he believed that heretofore her selections had been on the schmaltzy side Conseuently when he voiced his feelings n several Seeing Green interviews Oprah withdrew hernvitation to have him as a guest on her show And the dust cover of my hardback copy does not feature her stamp of approval which had been embossed on earlier copies of the book Of course the publicity engendered by the tempest n a teapot may have had as much of a positive mpact on sales as his appearance on her show would have had But perhaps he did salvage his street cred I hope soSo how How to Develop Your Psychic Powers ist that I would give such a heralded book two out of five stars I ll answer that but first here s another uote from David Gates review If you don t
*end up liking *up liking one of Franzen s people you probably just don t like people My answer for the two stars s I didn t like any of the people I didn t like the father the mother I did feel some pity for her but I can t say I liked her the older son or especially his wife the younger son or the daughter At first I liked her but only because I didn t know her When I did get to know her I found her to be the most unlikable of the entire crew except for the older son s wifeIs this because The Station Ready Rookie: Firefighter Preparation Beyond the State Skills Test in Gates words I probably just don t like people Not Gigantische Visionen: Architektur und Hochtechnologie im Nationalsozialismus is because I just don t like THESE people or for that matter any of their friends or associates There was not a single person that I could pull for not one And after 568 pages I not only don t like the people I don t like the book eitherThe two stars were for the writing otherwiset would have been one and even then there were times I wasn t crazy about the writing either For example Susy Ghosh asked the table n a voice like hair n a shampoo commercial p 326 I m still trying to figure out what the hell that means.

that even though I loathed the Lamberts and almost every supporting character too that I actually enjoyed this book I usually can t stand stories where all the characters problems are selfnflicted emotional wounds due to a basic refusal to admit and face reality However I have to admit that I found this compelling reading Maybe I was nto t for all the wrong reasons Namely that I hated the Lamberts so much that their continued suffering brought sweet tears of joy to my eyes That s probably not what Franzen ntended but he had to create some ncredibly vivid characters and do justice to their pathetic lives to make me hate them so very very much JONATHAN FRANZEN S TOP TEN RULES FOR WRITERS as given to The Guardian on 20 Feb 2010with additional commenty comments by me 1 The reader s a friend not an adversary not a spectatorHmm well maybe I can t think Hugh Selby had very friendly thoughts when he wrote his brilliant Last Exit to Brooklyn t reads like he wants to shove all of us nto a landfill site and have done with the human race But uite often that s a good attitude for a writer to have Some books you walk around and poke sticks at they re designed that way some books you take your machete and hack nto the meat and the filth and the hell with any bystanders getting splattered they shouldn t be bystanding so close Game for Life: Michael Strahan if their fine suits mean that much to them Some books you can have round for tea with mama So I disagree with rule 1 2 Fiction thatsn t an author s personal adventure One Night at the Lake into the frightening or the unknownsn t worth writing for anything but moneyGarrison Keillor musta got a real fat wad for Lake Wobegon then Likewise Dickens I m not sure what this rule really means Maybe Power Surge it s just like a tie

dregs of the book and I think maybe even then Citizen Jack it was a knee jerk reaction at being so close to the book being over Enid sssues rubbed me the wrong way for many reasons not the least of which being that I could see my own mother Help Your Kids With Music: A unique step-by-step visual guide in her which means I suppose that Enid was probably the most well represented charactern the novelThe secondary characters were almost entirely a sorry lot with personalities to the extreme Bergen Belsen: Vom Aufenthaltslager zum Konzentrationslager, 1943-1945 in any number of directions too smart too stupid too needy too plain too EVERYTHINGI know that I ll never understand the praise this book received from critics and readers and I m ok with that I do wish however that I could meet some of the people who relatet so easily to real life Meeting them perhaps would truly terrify me My first Franzen Really I don t even know how to start this review I could begin I suppose by discussing the pure perfection of his writing It s REALLY DAMN GOOD If I could break reviews down nto little sections he d get 10 stars for his styletechniue Excellent On the other hand I can t give this a full 5 stars Or can I Yeah Storm Chaser it was well written The depth of the characters and the storyline maybe just a hair short of phenomenal YetWhy do I bother with fiction I feel guilty asf I should be learning something Mother Dear instead Is the desire to read this type of fiction some sort of voyeuristic fetish Peeknto some fictional character s life and say Hell I ve got The Search

a reader get anything out oft at all beyond perhaps some mindless entertainment Do I have to David Foster Wallace once said Fiction s about what t s to be a fucking human being And you know he s right In The Corrections Franzen absolutely nails not literally each member of a dysfunctional average family Mom borders on neurotic Dad s demented Kids all screwed up n their own way The following excerpt He d had the sense moments earlier that Caroline was on the verge of accusing him of being depressed and he was afraid that The Natural Dissolution of Fleeting-Improvised Men if thedea he was depressed gained currency he would forefit the right to his opinions He would forefit his moral certainties every word he spoke would become a symptom of disease he would never again win an arguement

tunes youn to each family member and their flaws In reading you may recognize yourself n one of the characters stop and think oh no I m that jerk Or n a perhaps better scenario say Ha That bitch s just like my sisterWhatever the case you KNOW these people Franzen writes about You work with them God forbid you are related to them But t s real All the mperfections the misunderstandings the yearning the love the hate It IS about being a human being And t s done very damn wellThis s NOT my last Franzen Franzen s writing s Cooking Korean Food with Maangchi: Traditional Korean recipes impeccable Not only does his understanding of complex familial relationships fascinate me but his ability to capture these characters all five of them I might add with such depthI think thats what really drew me n as a reader I mean these are people who are so flawed emotionally and so utterly selfish nherently and yet each of them has this capacity for loving one another even while recognizing their nability to stand each other for than five minutes at a time n a sense they are human than most humans And Franzen knows how to write a sentence my God All this book did was remind me why I love to readHonestly I try to give five stars sparingly but this one I fully endorse I think what makes The Girl He Used to Know it better than Freedoms that I walked away from this with a knot Der Vampir von Melaten in my stomach I really felt something here Seven year old Chip being left alone at the dinner table untilt was late enough for him to fall asleep on his placemat bothered me Juxtapose that with the tenderness Chip shows his dad toward the end of the novel and you start to wonder whether this man was ever really the emotionally unavailable tyrant that you thought he was Either way this just serves as a huge reminder for me to appreciate the way things are now while my kids are still young because t s probably not always going to be this simple July 2012Facts concerning Jonathan
