The Corrections By: Jonathan Franzen

This book was good, but not in the way a lot of other books are. It goes deeper into the dynamics of an American family than any book I've ever read. I am actually intrigued to read it again. I think there were so many intricate details to appreciate the book fully the first time through. This book seems like one of those books you can read over and over again and find something new and different and thought provoking every time. The true level of honest detail about the inter-workings of a family with aging parents (or grandparents) was sad and frustrating and made you want to throw the book across the room, but that is what makes it so amazing. It pulls out those emotions that no one wants to deal with or admit, but every one does. I have a love/hate relationship with this book and the fact that this relationship exists makes me love it even more. Find the book here!
