    The Corrections is a grandly entertaining novel for the new century--a comic, tragic masterpiece about a family breaking down in an age of easy fixes. After almost 50 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. Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while listenting to this book. It is so well written, and so well read! I would listen while on the treadmill and get totally absorbed.


    What other book might you compare The Corrections to and why?

    I don't know that this book is similar to any other I've read or listened to. The writing is somewhat similar to Franzen's "Freedom." Franzen is a true word smith!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not possible to choose!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No -- it has to be savored. The writing is wonderful, but dense.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it. Take your time. Enjoy!!

    The sheriff's deputy at the front door brings hard news to Ree Dolly. Her father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. Ree's father has disappeared before. The Dolly clan has worked the shadowy side of the law for generations, and arrests (and attempts to avoid them) are part of life in Rathlin Valley.

    Would you listen to Winter's Bone again? Why?

    These characters are so expertly crafted that they'll stay with me for a long time. I was there. I saw these people. I believed every word. I would listen again, and I would recommend this short book to anyone. I can't wait for more from this author. The narrator was perfect and her performance was flawless.
