    When he is four years old, Jack travels with his mother Alice, a tattoo artist, to several North Sea ports in search of his father, William Burns. From Copenhagen to Amsterdam, William, a brilliant church organist and profligate womanizer, is always a step ahead, has always just departed in a wave of scandal, with a new tattoo somewhere on his body from a local master or "scratcher".

    Story

    I am a huge John Irving fan. I often list him as a favorite author and have devoured every other book he's written. I wish I had read some of the other Audible reviews before I gave up 2 credits and 32 long hours of my life to this book, but I just assumed I would love it as well.

    I waited forever for the plot to grab me, but it never did. In telling the story he lists endless irrelevant details. With most audio books when temporarily distracted, I rewind a little to hear what I missed. Not this one, I couldn't wait to get through it, and had quickly learned that none of the details mattered anyway.

    Sorry, John, it pains me to say it, but this book does not live up to your many other masterpieces.
