One of my recent book reviews of a young adult novel called Siren has just been posted in the Fall 2010 Online edition of Rain Taxi, who I frequently write for. You WANT to read it. Oh, and there's a really well-written down-to-earth, no-hype review of Jonathan Franzen's novel Freedom . I think Franzen stinks, for the exact reason that this reviewer pinpoints. All whinging, no joy. I read part of The Corrections, his first novel, and finally put it down because I could not stand the characters. And I wasn't even repulsed in an interesting way. Just bleah.
