Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't stand this book. Franzen's writing is pretentious and he seems not to understand the function of a period to end sentences. There was one sentence around page 40 that lasted longer than a page! I gave up. There are too many good books out there to waste time on one where none of the characters are people I like or respect, and where the author drones on about a pencil sitting on a desk.
