Slow readingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 December 2021
I have not been able to finish this book. The characters making no impact on me at all let alone the story line whatever it is. I will no doubt pick it up again the months ahead and maybe feel differently about it,
Fascinating and relevant, but oh! the typesetting.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 July 2020
This was a very good read, mixing humour and real current concerns including feminism and the environment, not forgetting sex and violence. The typesetting in the Kindle edition is appalling which is why it only gets three stars. Easily a 4 otherwise. Kindle customers deserve better than this production

A great writer with his early warnings of what fracking would doReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 January 2019
This is another example of Franzen combining environmental and political concerns with his study of relationships. I thought it was excellent, having discovered him with later works.
BrilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2021
Has to be read to be believed. Franzen is a great writer.
One of the finest books I ever readReviewed in Italy on 1 July 2021
I liked the style of this novel, it's beautifully written. I liked the story too: there's romance, there's mistery and a great plot. The characters are original, real, very humane. Only shame is the way this unique book was typed: full of spelling, typing, punctuation mistakes of all types. It deserved much, much more!!
