However the first one, My Father's Brain, is really quite brilliant. It's funny, touching, sad and thought-provoking. It also gives a very clear insight into where The Corrections came from. There is also some interesting stuff on reading and on literature. ( ) AlisonSakai | Oct 1, 2017 | It's rare I find myself agreeing with the New york Times, Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune, but their descriptions of Jonathan Franzen as a "pompous prick, an "ego-blinded snob", and a "spoiled,whiny little brat" are spot on.
While the language is just as complex and florid as in his novels, these essays reveal far to much about the man behind the typewriter, and none of it is flattering.
( ) bensdad00 | Jan 10, 2017 | The essay "My Father's Brain" is excellent. It chronicles Franzen's father's death from Alzheimer's. The essay about Franzen's kerfuffle with Oprah is also very good. The other essays are well-written and enjoyable. ( ) evamat72 | Mar 31, 2016 | I'm very sympathetic to his concerns w/r/t fiction, so that part of the book was actually interesting and quite neat. And his Alzheimer's essay is astonishingly good. But that said, the book is saddled with many just-OK essays. I just couldn't get excited about it past the first few chapters. ( ) gregorybrown | Oct 18, 2015 | In all fairness, this book wasn't what I had expected it to be. But it was still very hard to get through because it was pretentious and boring and lacking in any real human insight that I would find relevant. I can see why this author's previous work made it onto Oprah's book list; that's right where he deserves to be.
