    When he is four years old, Jack travels with his mother Alice, a tattoo artist, to several North Sea ports in search of his father, William Burns. From Copenhagen to Amsterdam, William, a brilliant church organist and profligate womanizer, is always a step ahead, has always just departed in a wave of scandal, with a new tattoo somewhere on his body from a local master or "scratcher".

    Katharina says: "Great story, annoyingly read"
    "John has turned into a perverted hateful man."

    What would have made Until I Find You better?

    John has turned into a perverted hateful man. this is the most hateful book i have ever read, John Irving has written the opposite of most of his previous themes of hope and the tough it spirit of people.

    First published as four separate novels (Some Do Not…, No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up, and The Last Post) between 1924 and 1928, Parade’s End explores the world of the English ruling class as it descends into the chaos of war. Christopher Tietjens is an officer from a wealthy family who finds himself torn between his unfaithful socialite wife, Sylvia, and his suffragette mistress, Valentine. A profound portrait of one man’s internal struggles during a time of brutal world conflict, Parade’s End bears out Graham Greene’s prediction that "there is no novelist of this century more likely to live than Ford Madox Ford."

    leora says: "A brilliant, challenging, and valuable work"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Wonderful story 5 Star Performance for some i suppose, but just not my cup of tea, too long and dreary, early 20th century soap opera of staggering proportions. i did the first 8 hrs of 38 hr story hoping i would be riveted, it did not change went on and on and on. Skipped to the last 30 mins. and it sound like the first, middle and last 30 minutes. Again wonderfully done just not for me!
