If you like his later work, or indeed any of his work, I'd recommend this wholeheartedly.
Irving fans beware!
for newcomers i wouldnt reccomend this. go with the world according to garp, cider house rules or a prayer for owen meany. there is no real urgency to the story.
for those who came to this book for further antics of the kind got up to by earl the bear in the hotel new hampshire, you won't find them, which is not to say that this isnt delightful just not priority reading where irving is concerned
