it was ok
Recommended for: anyone who has plenty of time to kill - maybe a prisoner?

What a shame when a decent story idea is mangled by diarrhea writing and non-existent editing. I plowed through all 800-some pages of this book, hoping that Irving would somehow redeem himself in the end. No such luck. It managed to even get worse at the end - quite a feat. This book was a real disappointment, and I give it two stars only because the basic story itself was intriguing; it was the execution of the story that fell far short.

Susan that's a shame. I have picked up this up from the library and could never keep interested. and I usually love John Irving. I won't waste my time and even try this one again.....
