This book is the best book I have read in at least a year.

Maybe five years.

I don’t know.

It’s really stinkin’ good.

I love to read.

Love. It.

There are few things that I love to do more.

Especially when a good book of fiction pulls you in from the beginning.

And when the characters are so real you feel like you truly know them.

Freedom is the story of a modern American family. You will either find yourself or someone you know in at least one of the characters.

The story of Patty and Walter Berglund will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I felt and experienced their hopes, disappointments, dissatisfaction, unrest, compromises, and triumphs with them.

As you walk through the family issues that are so relevant today (unhappy teenagers, keeping up with the Joneses, longing for more, complacency in a marriage, and joy in small wonders) with the Berglunds, you will root for them to find peace and their own freedom.

I’m not good at writing book reviews. So, if you are interested in what some smart people had to say about the story, you can click here or here.

Or, you can take my word for it, and just read this masterpiece. It will change you.

“This wasn’t the person he’d thought he was, or would have chosen to be if he’d been free to choose, but there was something comforting and liberating about being an actual definite someone, rather than a collection of contradictory potential someones.”
-Jonathan Franzen (Freedom)

Oh, I own my copy so let me know if you want to borrow it.

I’ll let ya.

Happy reading book nerds!
