One of the greatest of all time May 13, 2007
When I first read this book, many years ago, it moved me in ways I never thought a book could. It transported me, and still does, again and again and again. I grew to love the characters and cheer them on, cry with them, and dream of the life they led. Their stories have been a part of my life since this book was published. It's Mr. Irving's greatest and should I ever get to meet him, I will thank him. I'm not a total fan of all Mr. Irving's work and shouldn't be considered a slave to it. I speak only for this book where, for the time he took to write it, he connected with my and so many others. I could write volumes about this book. The sadness and death, the joy and perserverence, the love of family despite incredible hardships and outrageous happenings. Instead, however, I will encourage the person who is considering this book to keep and open mind and allow him/herself to be transported in a way only a REAL GOOD BOOK can do. Enjoy.
What a horrible book May 7, 2002
This book was horrible...no plots, no metaphores; nothing I do not agree with the writing style of the author and I don't think that anyone who knows a good book when they read one, would either.
Un escritor brillante Aug 26, 2000
Este es uno de los mejores libros de John Irving. Yo lo considero a el uno de los mejores escritores contemporaneos norteamericanos. La historia de esta familia es triste, comica, y increiblemente adictiva. Yo le recomiendo esto libro a todos mis amigos, y pare ser honesta yo siempre recomiendo todo lo que este escritor escribe.
