Garp would hate this book. Dog poop Lacrosse is the only "John Irving" element in the book. I did listen to the entire book; it is well read.
I came away from this book with the same question I always ask. Why hasn't mankind cast off the belief in a creator "god"? The answer I am coming to is that there is no financial profit to be made in atheism. The jet setting popes, rabbis, mullahs, and evangelical preacher all attest to the financial success of any religion. Getting a group of atheists together is meaningless. What would we discuss? Talking about the absence of belief is a very short conversation.
