Different narrator would have made all the difference in the world for this book.
Garp's children and the supporting characters were far more normal and likeable than Garp, Jenny or Helen. I particularly liked Roberta Muldoon, who had such soul and depth, and Ellen James, who was such a real character - you could imagine this being exactly how a girl/woman would react to the movement that surrounded her trauma.
Perhaps Prichard could stop holding his nose when he reads.
None - I think that they were so impeccably interlaced together. As you read the book, you wondered why it was necessary to know certain things, only to have it tied back in later on in a way that was horrible and brilliant.
