Good, but no Owen Meany,
By A Customer
This review is from: Setting Free The Bears (Black Swan) (Paperback)
After having read Garp, Owen Meany, Widow for a Year and Cider House Rules with such immense enjoyment, I was eager to read Irving's first book. Sadly, I was a bit disappointed. Although the book is enjoyable, it does not have the fluency of his other work and was a lot easier to put down.
Irving fans beware!
