    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Overall

    I had heard so much about this book for years. My whole family had read it and somehow it had bypassed my reading list. I have recently become quite enchanted with audio books and I must say this is definitely a favorite. It was undoubtedly a great read but what a fun listen. I enjoyed every minute and lost track of time while entranced. I now can join in with my family members whom constantly quote from Owen Meany!!
