    Story
    (196)

    Here are the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields, a feminist leader ahead of her times. Here are the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes, even of sexual assassinations. The World According to Garp is a novel rich with "lunacy and sorrow", yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust.

    CH says: "Terrific"
    "Favorite author, disappointing narration"
    Overall

    I have loved the other novels by John Irving that I've read, but I didn't enjoy this one as much because I really couldn't get past the monotonous narration.
