My favourite book,
This review is from: A Prayer For Owen Meany (Paperback)
5 stars doesn't really do this justice. John Irving transcends perfection with 'A Prayer For Owen Meany'. This book is probably the most moving piece of literature I've ever read. That's not because it's particularly sad. It's more down to the love felt by the narrator towards Owen, and Owen's immense faith.
There's not much more that can be said without ruining the intricate plot. Owen Meany is a magical character and I would recommend this book above any other.
