This story of a dysfunctional American family pulls you into their lives and wont let go. Patty is a wife, mother, woman whose mind is divided into two realities - pretty much like most women who decided marriage and children were their main goals in life in their early twenties until they got what they thought they wanted. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul-the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents.

Ironically, you can also substitute the book Freedom for the word freedom above, and it doesn't change the meaning of anything, which is kind of unintentionally funny on Franzen's part. My Reasons for Hating This Book

The essayist, Jonathan Franzen writes, is like a fire-fighter, whose job, while everyone else is fleeing the flames of shame, is to run straight into them. For the past twenty-five years, even as his novels have earned him worldwide acclaim, Franzen has led a second life as a risk-taking essayist. Franzen’s great loves are literature and birds, and The End of the End of the Earth is a passionate argument for both. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire.

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. Funny and poignant, this long-anticipated book's only trouble is the weight of expectation it carries, says Curtis Sittenfeld. James Wood assesses the importance of Jonathan Franzen's new book, The Corrections, a Bleak House of the digital age.

Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the avant-garde of the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you whereto recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to actually do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, totalfamily man she was doing her small part to build a better world. But now, in the new millennium, the Berglunds have become a mystery. Why has their teenage son moved in with the aggressively Republican family next door? Why has Walter taken a job working with Big Coal? What exactly is Richard Katz outré rocker and Walter's college best friend and rival still doing in the picture? Most of all, what has happened to Patty?Why has the bright star of Barrier Street become "a very different kind ofneighbor," an implacable Fury coming unhinged before the street's attentive eyes? In his first novel since The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us anepic of contemporary love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire. In charting the mistakes and joys of Freedom'scharacters as they struggle to learn how to live in an ever more confusingworld, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of ourtime.

Beautiful but somewhat naive Tracy Whitney is set up for attempted murder and is given a 15 year sentence in an escape-proof penitentiary. Tracy soon shows her personal strengths against powerful and dangerous prisoners determined to take her over.

After a miraculous pardon Tracy is no longer naive and sets out to destroy the influential and powerful people who put her in jail. Using her beauty and native cunning, by the middle of the book she quickly achieves her objectives. Then she is faced with the rest of her life being tarnished by her prison record, until she makes contact with someone highly recommended by her best friend and mentor from her prison cell.

Tracy then starts her second career as a jewel thief, mixing with the cream of society and only stealing from those that can afford the loss. She soon confronts Jeff Stevens, an irresistible rogue and con artist, who frequently beats her in taking from the same targets. There are shades of "To Catch a Thief" in the plot.

This is classic Sidney Sheldon with fast moving page-turning action and a strong-willed heroine. Sheldon is quoted as saying "I try to construct them so when the reader gets to the end of it, he or she has to read just one more chapter. It's the technique of the old Saturday afternoon serial: leave the guy hanging on the edge of the cliff at the end of the chapter."

The book is over 30 years old but the storyline and writing are not dated. Highly recommended for someone who likes books about strong willed females facing impossible odds.

I absolutely love Sidney Sheldon. His books are always richly drawn, with strong characters, and intriguing plots. And this is no exception. I fell in love with this book when I was 16 (I'm now 32) and have read it over and over again. It's that good.

Tracy is a seemingly ordinary woman working an ordinary bank job and about to marry a somewhat ordinary man. But her comfortable life is turned upside down when her mother commits suicide after being financially ruined by a smooth talking New Orleans Mafia man. Tracy embarks on a half cocked plan to get revenge and ends up taking the fall in an insurance swindle and sentenced to an exorbitant amount of time in a Lousiana prison. Tracy will walk into prison an innocent woman and come out an ingenious cat burglar headed for a life she never even imagined. But first she must deal with the men who conspired to murder her mother and send her to prison...

This is a fantastically fun story. Sweeping from the grounds of the Lousiana penitentiary to the luxury of the Orient Express, it takes the reader on a world wide trip of a lifetime, as Tracy becomes the world's most wanted cat burglar. Along the way she meets several colorful characters. Imagining herself a modern day Robin Hood, she is careful to only swindle those who would swindle themselves. The reader will find herself surprised to be rooting on the bad guys, enjoying a vicarious thrill or two, and smiling at the crazy plots Tracy manages to pull off.

This book is a quick, easy beach read and one that will stay with you long after you turn the final page. It's the kind of book you can put on your bookshelf and come back to years later, eager to live and relive Tracy's exciting adventures. Sidney Sheldon is an incomparable author and this book is no exception.

Sidney Sheldon once again shows the skills of a master storyteller. About the only thing cliche in this story is that the heroine finds her soul mate. If doesn't happen til the end of the story, though, with enough plot twists for two or three books before that. Even if you don't relate to the main character, you'll keep reading to see how she survives this setting (whatever it is) and what happens next.

Sidney Shelton once more provides an incredibly interesting storyline. The novel seems to go on and on with one exciting tale after another. His well-developed characters are compelling and the reader never knows what to expect next. Then the story ends! How completely frustrating! I highly recommend this novel to suspense loving readers!

There are times when you have to suspend disbelief to enjoy a good book or a good movie. This is one of those times. To go from a bank teller to a world traveling con artist with no training in a short time doesn’t happen and isn’t believable. But like I said, if you can get past the disbelief, the book has a good story and I’m going to start the 2nd book in the series now.
