Review: A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY by John Irving

Bookatopia recently read and reviewed A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s a snipped from the review:

The problem I had with this book is that it is unnecessarily long, and while reading I often found myself thinking that some parts only diverted you from the story and should have been left out. This made the story slow at times and I would have definitely enjoyed it more if it was shorter.  When it was good though, it was really good and I couldn’t put it down. The thing I liked the most is the depth of the characters, Owen Meany by himself is probably the most powerful character I have encountered so far in a book.

Check out the full review.
