Your Restoration
The Weariness of the Self


CrossroadsCrossroads by Jonathan Franzen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've never grasped why people have been so impressed with Franzen's novels. I read The Corrections and it just didn't resonate with me (though I have wondered if I'd been middle-aged instead of in my twenties if I'd thought differently?). I eviscerated Freedom in my review of it.

But Crossroads is the real deal. A big and engrossing book about faith, identity, family, mental illness, and more. Besides being puzzled by where it ends, I really enjoyed this book. There were even a handful of sentences I underlined because of their profundity.
