    Story
    (117)

    In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, an anxious 12-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the 12-year-old and his father become fugitives, forced to run from Coos County to Boston, to southern Vermont, to Toronto, pursued by the implacable constable.

    Overall

    Yes, the underlying plot line was completely ludicrous. Given the facts of events that occurred that fateful night in Twisted River there was no reason for folks to leave town. But I got beyond that and accepted the premise.

    Yes, there was a repeat of the much earlier John Irving "sex in the car" scenario, but I forgave this duplication.

    I even disregarded the author's political views being forced on both the characters and the listener.

    And once I got beyond all that, I though the book was great, and I highly recommend it. Not Irving's best in my opinion, but a recommended read. But then again, I think "Until I Find You" is one of Irving's best but Audible listeners seem to think otherwise.

    And despite what seems to be unanimous dislike for the narrator, I thought he did a great job!
