It's been a long time! Freedom took me FOREVER to read! I swear, I've been working on it. And I have to say, I loved it. Freedom has been called a "Great American Novel" and it is a well deserved title.
Freedom is about a family over a span of many, many years. There's conflict, loved, adultery, a prodigal son. Basically all the good stuff that us Americans love to read about. So much drama. While I found the mother, Patty, extremely hard to relate to, I very much enjoyed all the other characters. Even Patty was enjoyable to read about; one of those people I loved to hate. But, I think as I age, I might look at Patty differently.
I really recommend Freedom for pretty much anybody. While I was reading it, a variety of people walked up to me and told me how much they enjoyed it. Many strangers even walked up randomly to talk to me about it in a coffee shop. I love when books do that, bring people together.
Definitely read this one, just make sure you love lots of time carved out!
