F 50x66
John Irving is very often funny, though his material isn't the usual stuff of humor; and he creates characters and places that feel real and interesting. I do fault the plot a bit for its lack of explication or empathy for one of the main character's birth family; and for what seemed to a poorly explained disappearance of the same character's first real love. But those are small quibbles against what is generally a well laid story that pulls the reader satisfying along through decades and social changes.
