"After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson's disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. The oldest, Gary, a once-stable portfolio manager and family man, is trying to convince his wife and himself, despite clear signs to the contrary, that he is not clinically depressed. The middle child, Chip, has lost his seemingly secure academic job and is failing spectacularly at his new line of work. And Denise, the youngest, has escaped a disastrous marriage only to pour her youth and heart down the drain of an affair with a married man - or so her mother fears. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home"--… (mais)

So many fellow readers did not like this book, but I gobbled it up with complete attention to each of the (undesirable?) well-developed characters and their peccadilloes. The author had me from the first page. It was a big, Dickensian, richly-detailed and satisfying novel. ( )

F***ing hell this is life. ( )

It set a lot up over the course of its 600+ pages but it only felt like it touched the surface of the fragile family drama that it proudly wears on its chest as its highest assurance.

While relating heavily to each and every character, with a father who has Parkinson's and my mom takes care of to him to her detriment, this couldn't have hit me harder nor at a better time. Its characters are annoying, funny, bratty, endearing, entitled, crazy, and uniquely familiar on every front. Everything about Denise and her history with Alfred, aside from Alfred's very weird and, not very well explained, love of Denise. Chips adventures in Lithuania and everything about Chips situation there had me laughing or gasping or learning something new. Gary and his perfectly dysfunctional nuclear hellscape of a family. These characters each spoke to me on a unique level, they all felt individual and beautifully flawed. I saw myself in them and I saw people I hated in them, existing together. These personalities along with that of the parents; Alfred and Enid, is the books biggest strength. Alfred's diseased rants of age and hallucinations made me laugh but also angry and sad.

All of these personalities and personal grievances, vendettas, secrets, and other story-related family drama were set up carefully for collision with dramatic fireworks and meticulously picked apart and solved through complex conversation and the theatrical drama of a finale we all expect from fiction. All of this had been leading up to the penultimate moment of the book, the "last Christmas at home together".

But when the book finally got there, it felt as if it happened so quickly and in a vacuum. That moment at the dinner table, we were Chip, speechless as these moments unfurled, held back by nothing and then passed by, and then we are met with an epilogue. *SPOILER* The book leaves you with the answer that everything in these dysfunctional people, at least the things set up throughout the book, was fixed by Alfred's entering into a nursing home. *END SPOILER*

Perhaps these unsolved threads that are the books biggest grievance for me are actually its greatest strength as a "family novel". As much like with family, we wish we could've said more, we each feel like we have the answers, that we know whats best, and get angry or detached as a result of just trying to do what we each think is best. We each want to communicate our deepest wants and needs with each other without all of the colorful generational baggage that existence brings. But in the end we are helpless in the face of circumstance to be able to communicate anything close to what we truly feel, so we are cut short and left to be happy with what we still have, rather than what we long for.

Overall a delightful and effortless read, a refreshing but heart-achingly realistic depiction of family. ( )

A masterpiece by any measure.

I struggled to get past the non-sentences. As my daughter put it, forgiving a novelist trying to be a poet. Then it got gross. Being an Oprah pick, I knew there would be irredeemable characters, but I couldn't even get past Chip's terrible decisions and the unnecessary description of his sex life. Just not for me.

Franzen’s brilliant achievement is that he creates a set of stereotypical characters and then opens the door and allows us see, in suspenseful, humorous, mesmerizing detail, their defining moments. What was once a silhouette becomes three-dimensional. The complexity becomes a dim mirror of our own complex interiority—writ large, the way we like it writ, because then we can’t help but see ourselves in it.
 
Hvis du skal ta med deg en eneste roman på sommerferie, bør det bli Jonathan Franzens "Korrigeringer". Du kan ikke gjøre noe bedre kjøp akkurat nå. Men romanen gjør deg ikke dermed til en lykkelig konsument, mener Tom Egil Hverven.

The madness of an autumn prairie cold front coming through. You could feel it: something terrible was going to happen. The sun low in the sky, a minor light, a cooling star Gust after gust of disorder. Trees restless, temperatures falling, the whole northern religion of things coming to an end. No children in the yards here. Shadows lengthened on yellow zoysia. Red oaks and pin oaks and swamp white oaks rained acorns on houses with no mortgage. Storm windows shuddered in empty bedrooms. And the drone and hiccup of a clothes dryer, the nasal contention of a leaf blower, the ripening of local apples in a paper bag, the smell of the gasoline with which Alfred Lambert had cleaned the paintbrush from his morning painting of the wicker love sea.
Down the long concourse they came unsteadily, Enid favoring her damaged hip, Alfred paddling at the air with loose-hinged hands and slapping the airport carpeting with poorly controlled feet, both of them carrying Nordic Pleasurelines shoulder bags and concentrating on the floor in front of the, measuring out the hazardous distance three paces at a time. -The Failure

The human species was given dominion over the earth and took the opportunity to exterminate other species and warm the atmosphere and generally ruin things in its own image, but it paid the price for the privileges: that the finite and specific animal body of this species contained a brain capable of conceiving the infinite and wishing to be infinite itself.
