Reader recommendation: Freedom

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

After reading "How To Be Alone," a collection of his essays, I picked it up Jonathan Franzen's novel Freedom and finished it in two days. The writing in "Freedom" is sharp, the characters well wrought, and the story compelling.
