I actually remember very little of the plot, not much of the characters.
I laughed out loud more when reading this than any of his other books -- and I'm a big fan of his; I like all of his works.

I'm a big John Irvine fan but I couldn't get into this book, gave up trying to read it in the end. Nothing like as polished as the rest of his stuff.Published 11 months ago by John Walker
I am still happy that I read it but this one did not do it for me. I'll go on most any trip John Irving is going on. I'll cut him some slack any day. Read morePublished 14 months ago by My Mother Was An Astrologer

I loved this book. I like John Irving. I think this is about the fifth book I've read of his. This one was very funny and also a little sad. I like happy endings.Published on April 9, 2011 by piper
I got a little more than half way through John Irving's book and I couldn't stand it anymore.
If your into toilet humor and bad taste, this one is for you. Read more
