The critics loved The Corrections Published in 2001 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 wrote in his glowing review in the New York Times that the book had “just enough novel of paranoia touches so Oprah won’t assign it and ruin Franzen’s street cred”Wrong David Oprah not only chose it for her book club but went so far as to proclaim it “the great American novel” Franzen who recognized that his book’s selection by Oprah meant that sales would sharply increase 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 in several interviews Oprah withdrew her invitation 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 in a teapot may have had as much of a positive impact on sales as his appearance on her show would have had But perhaps he did salvage his “street cred” I hope soSo how is it that I would give such a heralded book two out of five stars? I’ll answer that but first here is another uote from David Gates’ review “If you don’t end up liking each one of Franzen’s people you probably just don’t like people”My answer for the two stars is 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 in Gates’ words I “probably just don’t like people”? No it 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 otherwise it 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 in a voice like hair in a shampoo commercial” p 326 I’m still trying to figure out what the hell that means

Jonathan Franzen É The Corrections PDF

The Corrections?ια να τους απασχολούν τα ίδια προβλήματα ν' αναζητούν με την ίδια λαχτάρα την ευτυχία να κάνουν τα ίδια λάθηΟ έρωτας τα καθημερινά άγχη το χρηματιστήριο η οικογενειακή ζωή η ανατροφή των παιδιών η σκοτεινιά των γηρατειών τα όνειρα του καθενός οι μικρές και μεγάλες διορθώσεις που γίνονται στη ζωή συνθέτουν το δικό μας πορτρέτο φιλοτεχνημέ 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 is REALLY DAMN GOOD If I could break reviews down into 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 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 as if I should be learning something instead Is the desire to read this type of fiction some sort of voyeuristic fetish? Peek into some fictional character's life and say Hell I've got it good Really there is plenty of non fiction out there to get you into an attitude of gratitude right uick see books on holocaust genocide great depression etc Do I as a reader get anything out of it at all beyond perhaps some mindless entertainment? Do I have to? David Foster Wallace once said Fiction’s about what it is 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 is demented Kids all screwed up in 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 if the idea 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 Fricking BRILLIANT And real Somehow Franzen manages to put the fun in dysfunctional Far from mindless The Corrections tunes you in to each family member and their flaws In reading you may recognize yourself in one of the characters stop and think oh no I'm that jerk Or in a perhaps better scenario say Ha That bitch is 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 it is real All the imperfections the misunderstandings the yearning the love the hate It IS about being a human being And it is done very damn wellThis is NOT my last Franzen
