This would have been a fantastic book had it left out all the political whining (in fact, Michael Moore must have cut his teeth on this book). The main character, Owen Meany, is wonderful. But if you don't think Reagan was the devil-incarnate then skip the book and rent the movie "Simon Birch"! It was adapted from the book and is fantastic -- I've watched it five times at least. I listened to the book all the way through, trying to fast-forward over all the political rhetoric but, unlike most of my other books, I will never re-listen to it.
