    While reading The Corrections I really understood the meaning of schadenfreude because I despised almost every character in this book so much that themiserable their lives got, theenjoyment I took from it And when a shotgun was introduced late in the novel, I read the rest of it with my fingers crossed while muttering Please please please please please please in the hope that at least one
