I've read everything by Jonathan Franzen and just about everything about him, and this is the best novel he's written. The love story between these two keeps you turning the pages as Franzen sweeps you away with his killer writing style. Days will pass when nothing but the images of this book will cross your mind. Franzen has the ability to take us away, and in the process, show us where we were and where we might be going. This isn't a good love story, it's far far better.
