This book was quite boring and redundant... I regret buying this book. It was the same story about her redneck family told again and again and again.
I am a fan of John Irving. This book really let me down. The story is flat and unremarkable. Only the retelling of the AIDs crisis in the 80s had any emotion to it. It the story of closeted gay man who enjoys his men to have breasts and dress in women's clothing. I would really love money and hours of listening returned to me after this awful listening expereince.
This book moved me as much as my favorite Stephen King book, Hearts of Atlantis. It brings out the humanity of the characters using the JFK assassination as tableau to look back and ask, as we all do, "What If?"
