I remember reading that John Irving would not have the book narrated until he found THE VOICE, and Joe Barrett's delivery is perfect.
I hadn't read this book in 10 years, and I never considered it a favorite until now. I've listened to the book slowly to savor it. The story is so rich in detail and emotion that you can't keep yourself from falling in love with the characters. Irving gives such life to Owen Meany that he becomes a real instrument of God. (And I don't even believe in god.) You must listen to or read this book if you consider yourself a reader.
