I absolutely loved this book! It's about a dysfunctional family making the transition from 50s-era-boomer to a messy-modernity (the tale of modern America). The premise is that the Dad has Parkinson's and the Mom wants all her grown children to gather for one last good Christmas together. Each of the 5 family members get their own long chapter and each is painted so well that by the time they all come together you feel like you're a family member too.

The writing is so horribly darkly hilarious. The story itself is dark, sad, sometimes funny, and redemptive. If you want a nice happy ending where everyone hugs and cries together this is not the book for you. It's long and there's some raw, rough bits. And the Dad, he has Parkinson's, so that part is pretty bleak.


I thought it was really interesting that the family basically moves beyond Dad. They don't really forgive him they just keep growing and moving on while he dies alone and sad like 1950s America.

The Corrections is a 2001 novel by American author Jonathan Franzen. It revolves around the troubles of an elderly Midwestern couple and their three adult children, tracing their lives from the mid-20th century to "one last Christmas" together near the turn of the millennium.
  MUHAMMADHARIS | Oct 13, 2021 |
A painfully realistic look at a normal Midwestern family and the way that even such a "normal" family is hopelessly mucked up. As I was reading it, I was hoping that at least one member of the family would manage to rise above their dysfunctions, actually succeed at making their "corrections," and lead a reasonably well-adjusted life, yet despairing that this would actually turn out to be the case. I was grateful that Chip and possibly Denise did seem to be somewhat better off at the end, but their parents and Gary sadly did not. Though it might be suspected that Franzen was trying to rewrite this family tragedy as a farce, and though it was quite satirical much of the time, the tragedy still shone through in all its painfully realistic bitterness. It depicted well the state of growing old and even growing demented.

It was difficult to get into at first due to its utterly mundane subject matter, but it became more compelling as I got to know the characters from inside their heads more. ( )

Just... so bad. I really only read it because after reading (& similarly hating) Freedom, I figured that I should at least try another Franzen book, just in case Freedom was a whiff. Having completed all 566 miserable pages, I can confirm that I hate Mr. Franzen's writing with all of my little black heart.

There is not a human being portrayed on these pages——and don't get me started on how poorly Mr. Franzen writes women——nor is there much of a plot outside the unending backstory provided in some of the most turgid prose you'll ever willingly read. Of particular scorn is Mr. Franzen's penchant for finding the most obtuse way to say something, most memorably "having achieved non-virginity before college."

I can honestly find not a single commendable aspect of the book. For a comic novel, it only elicited one laugh from me, and it was one I let out in manic frustration when I realized that Mr. Franzen had finally decided to write a character arc in the last 10 pages of the novel.

If I had one word to describe this book, I would use bloated. And not in the sense of like, "oh honey, I loved your dinner but I'm feeling rather bloated for some reason." I mean bloated in the sense of total, unrelenting, unnecessary gargantuation. That is, right up until the very end, when everything could get really interesting, when the five characters whose interactions we've been craving for the previous five hundred pages all finally get into a room together. We have slogged through their BS time and time again and they will finally confront each other, have some good, old-fashioned human drama, will face the consequences of their actions, and——oh crap, it's over. The scene ended quicker than it took me to write that sentence. All I can say is that this novel builds you up, self-felating the entire time, like a town preparing for nuclear disaster: children running into bunkers, families killing other families over morsels of food, the construction of enormous barracks and barriers between each other, desperation on the faces of every human being in a hundred mile radius as this bomb threatens to drop. Only, when it finally does, you discover all the hullaballoo was over a pebble.

The Corrections had a time and a place. Unfortunately, it has passed. As a young person reading this novel in college, I can safely say that nobody from my generation will find any interest in this book. It served as a litmus test post 9-11, but Gen Z all already know what our lives are like, and we certainly don't want to hear Mr. Franzen's warped fever-dream ramblings on it. No thank you. ( )

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.

'Met voorsprong het beste boek dat ik in jaren gelezen heb. Het enige slechte is dat het jammer genoeg na 502 pagina's ophoudt.'

'De correcties is een zeldzaamheid: een boek dat hoog inzet, stilistisch verbluft en niet kan worden weggelegd tot het is uitgelezen.'

Fremragende amerikansk roman minder os om hvor nøjsomme vi i grunden er herhjemme. Litterært set.

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.
