Book Review - "The Corrections"

"The Corrections" by Jonathan Franzen
My grade: C

In one word, this novel is disappointing. So much hype over nothing! It's a long story, that doesn't end in a significantly different place than it started out. The characters are entirely unbelievable and flat. The writing is mediocre at its best. And the only emotion I felt at any point while reading this novel was boredom. In general, a waste of time.


  1. I find that the most appalling let down in any book; if the characters are weak and see through. That just ends the book for me and I'll just put it down.

  2. Don't read "The Corrections" then; you'll be disappointed! :)
