    Of these, I’ve only read Freedom and absolutely loved it. What great insight into the American Dream! What can you tell me about the other titles? Of the three, which one is a must-read right now?

    I’ve read three of the 4.

    Actually, I would read “Skippy Dies” first which is on pace to be in the Zombie round.

    If you are looking for something quick, read “Goon Squad.” It goes fast and most people really seem to like it.
