Character description was way over the top in length and vocabulary. You need a pocket dictonary while reading.
Yes, very very very slow!
I could not make it past the third chapter.
Once again, I chose this book based on good reviews, not always so...
I really think all books are better in audio, provided the narrator is good.
This was a nice read, plain and simple
A girl aged 12 might enjoy this book. We should know the age of the people who rate books....I am 50 and it was very immature.
Great , great, story!
He brought Owen to life. I really can't imagine reading this and not listening to it.
Great book! I will read more of John Irving's books because of this one.
It was a very dull plot. I went on the reviews I read, should not have done that!
Childish! silly, boring!
Go with my gut
Very basic boring book. A waste of a credit!
The Story was historically interesting

Each person in the story had their own voice, sometimes I forgot it was the same man reading all the characters, very well done!
All and all a great listen, mayby a bit long.
The narrator was great the book was very boring. I didn't finish it.
the narrator was good
Unfortunately, I followed the reviews when choosing this book, yikes!
