He does not seem like a douche bag, at all. In fact, despite all the Oprah hoopla Which he described as a fiasco, not because of anything that he or Oprah did, but because the whole thing got blown out of proportion. After fifty pages, I was horrified to realize that it was looking like this book would be another collection of self-absorbed asshats.
At that point, I thought there were two possibilities: 1 That Jonathan Franzen is a complete douche bag himself and that he actually thought he was creating sympathetic characters. However, as I got deeper into Freedom, and we started getting the history and alternate view points, I started to sympathize with most of the characters. Except for Joey. The Berglunds seem like a prime example of family-first socially conscious living.
They bought a house in a run down St. Paul neighborhood and became the first wave of gentrification for that area. Walter is a lawyer who works on environmental causes. Patty was a talented college basketball player who channels all her old competitive instincts into being the best mother and neighbor possible. The two kids, Jessica and Joey, are intelligent and seem destined for big things.
And just to give them a touch of cool in their suburban existence, Patty and Walter are old friends with Richard Katz, a womanizing musician who has just gained mainstream popularity. But the Berglunds quickly fall apart in spectacular fashion. Patty has turned into a lost and bitter shadow of her former self.
Walter has left his old environmental job to work with a rich man with ties to the coal industry, and as the kids leave for college, the parents are off to D. The novel covers a tremendous amount of ground, not just with the elaborate characterizations, but in terms of the backdrops. One of the key things that comes up repeatedly is the idea that Americans have about freedom. Assuming she could find someone to read it to her and explain the big words. Franzen makes a lot of valid points about how American politics has become a constant screaming match more concerned with beating the other guy than accomplishing anything.
That kid is a prick. While freedom and happiness are usually considered to go hand-in-hand, these characters show that poorly used freedom can make you supremely unhappy. A character gets caught up in an elaborate overseas get-rich-quick scheme. The daughter of the family is probably the most adult and sensible character. Just as I was reading this section, a stray cat came up on our deck and tried to attack one of our two house kitties through the door screen.
It was very startling to be reading about feral cats and then hear godawful yowling, hissing, screeching and general mayhem in the next room.
For a second, I thought Franzen was so good that he caused me to have audio hallucinations.
LITERATURA: Libertad (Jonathan Franzen)
Tusho The themes of the tale relate to how Walter and Patty use their freedom to make meaning of their lives and do whatever it takes to preserve their marriage or to scrap it for something better. I have to confess, though, that I spent much of my own childhood fascinated franzne native birds. Both of their endeavors backfire with devastating moral repercussions. Two halves, two extremes, two exaggerations.
