    Millions of television viewers witness a journalist lose his left-hand to a lion, triggering a nationwide race to find and deliver a hand transplant. John Irving's tenth novel promises more seamless storytelling and a penetrating look at the power of second chances.

    "Bit of a bizarre story line"
    Overall

    For some reason I haven't quite figured out, I couldn't stop listening. The characters are colorful, and I agree with the another reviewer regarding laughing out loud a few times, and the reader was good. But, a fascinating story line ... a guy with questionable morals losing his hand and falling in love with the widow of a donor hand ... had a lot more promise than the book ultimately delivers. There was probably and hour or more devoted to silly stuff not even relative to the meat of the story ... like a dog who liked to eat poop, and an owner who liked to sling dog poop with a lacrosse stick ... crazy, but, like I said, I couldn't stop listening.
