This review is from: A Prayer For Owen Meany (Paperback)
My friend recommended this book. She's always been an avid reader and hoped in the future to become a writer herself. However, she said that after reading it she no longer wanted to pursue that idea because any book she ever wrote would never be as good as A Prayer for Owen Meany. Having just finished reading it myself, I understand what she means (not that I don't have any faith in my friend's ability!). It's a true literary masterpiece. In meeting Owen I feel I've known and lost a friend - wonderful from beginning to end.
