Surprise Disappointment by John Irving

by BelowParforIrving on May 20, 2009

I found this book to be rather pointless. While I enjoy the satire of John Irving and have read several of his books, I found this one to be almost depressing which is not the norm for Irving. I actually wondered if Mr. Irving was taking a bit of a "mental Sabaticle" when he wrote this. I don't like to write anything negative about John Irving as he is my very favorite author and I would love to someday meet him. I find him totally fascinating. His character development surpasses all other authors I have read. The 158-Pound Marriage just fell short of my expectations for an author of Irving's caliber. Suann Rose, Houston, TX
