It's not an easy book to finish. I feel all of February has been dedicated to this book and usually in that amount of time I can get at least 2-3 books finished. Not so with a John Irving novel. My friend Sue picked this for our book club selection this month and I was glad as I'd never read it. My husband and another friend Tim both pick this as one of their favorites. After the first 10 pages I wasn't so sure-I especially disliked the super long chapters-and I pushed through that only to really fall in love with the story. It has so many great connecting ideas and what it has to say about faith and friendship are great reminders to us all.
Thank you Sue for making this a book club pick and for a great book club discussion.
I heard a little "amen" in Owen's voice when I shouted "I finished" last night.
I heard there is a movie. Anyone watched it?
Also two very different covers...I prefer the armadillo version myself.
