    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.

    Give it the time it deserves....

    Only half-way through and feel obligated to defend this amazing author... you have to approach Franzen in the right frame of mind...or you're just banging your head against the wall...genius...no one does it like him!

    Purity

    Started off great but lost steam as it went on. Really, really, really disliked the end. Disappointing potential.
