Freedom by Jonathan Franzen

Freedom: A Novel Dear Every Single Book Critic in the Entire Nation,

Why are you fawning over this yuppie whinefest when it is nothing more than third-rate chick lit?

Dear Unsuspecting Kindle Readers,

The first chapter of this book is witty, interesting, and not vulgar. The rest is the opposite.

Dear Me,

Stop buying books just because everyone is raving about them.
