I like the story, but the descriptions get annoying. Several minutes are spent describing in detail the people and locations, and what the first person (John Wheelright) would think of each one, and how it affected him.
One John Irving book is enough for me.
This is an eye opener for all those people that think the US is only trying to help the rest of the world. These "confessions" show how we manipulate countries in development so they can't grow.
Don't get me wrong, the US has done MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY to rid the world of invasionist countries and we can be very proud of that, but we also have an Imperialistic side that is not disclosed inside the US.
