    The stranger arrived on a cool October evening. Jessie and Carl invited the stranded young man into their cabin, fed him supper, and let him spend the night. The next morning he repays their kindness by taking them prisoner in their own home.

    I'm sorry, I truly thought the story was capable of being engaging and interesting but this book really, really needed an editor. Plenty of inconsistencies and sometimes there was simply too much information. The characters said so much inside their heads, and most of it was repetitive and plenty of it was completely unnecessary.

    In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, an anxious 12-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the 12-year-old and his father become fugitives, forced to run from Coos County to Boston, to southern Vermont, to Toronto, pursued by the implacable constable.

    "Very slow!"
    Overall

    I love John Irving, I really do but this book is terribly slow. I know if I could get through to the end I will be glad, but I simply cannot listen to another moment.
