Listening to this...
Finished reading "Freedom" by Jonathan Franzen. It was weird reading that book cos its just about ordinary boring mundane human relations. Nothing too dramatic or spectacular and yet I was so absorbed in it. I don't know what it was that got me sucked in...definitely not the drama...perhaps just the fact that he can really describe those fucking useless seconds of life that most are too lazy or impatient to do. Damn, that man must be a patient human being. Even I, who love all that emotion shit would have been willing to skip some stuff. I don't know how he did it but it is strange to be reading with excitement something that is boring.
