    Anticlimactic

    Hmm.... A very long read. I enjoyed it but I felt that the climax wasn't worthy of the effort to reach it.

    Purity

    Horrible subject. Tedious chapters. The writing itself is good but so much unhappiness. Even if you had never suffered from depression I think this story could take you there.

    PURITY

    Typically, Purity was a long read althouh it seemed to wander off frequently from the story line. The characters were well developed yet strikingly odd, over dramatic, and almost freakish. The endimg arrived suddenly, felt anticimactic and insignificant after such a lengthy story. Not my favourite of Franzen's books, but as always, a caliber of writing worthy of the read: skilful, detailed, different.

    Purity

    A bit too pedantic for my taste. He seemed too interested in letting the reader know how much knows rather than concentrate on the flow of the story.
