Publisher's Summary

As we grow older - most of all, in what we remember and what we dream - we live in the past. Sometimes we live more vividly in the past than in the present.

As an older man, Juan Diego will take a trip to the Philippines, but his dreams and memories will travel with him; he is most alive in his childhood and early adolescence in Mexico. 'An aura of fate had marked him,' John Irving writes. 'The chain of events, the links in our lives - what leads us where we're going, the courses we follow to our ends, what we don't see coming, and what we do - all this can be mysterious, or simply unseen, or even obvious.'

Avenue of Mysteries is the story of what happens to Juan Diego in the Philippines, where what happened to him in the past - in Mexico - collides with his future.

    "Avenue of Mysteries"
    Where does Avenue of Mysteries rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has to be John Irving's second best Novel, second to "A Prayer for Owen Meany"


    What other book might you compare Avenue of Mysteries to, and why?

    A Prayer for Owen Meany


    Have you listened to any of Armando Duran’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book I have listened to that was read by Armando Duran. I do like listening to Armando's voice


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are sad parts to the story and surprises. The book is unputdownable


    Any additional comments?

    I have always liked John Irving's Novels. I tend to read his opening chapters several times. John Irving does not pad his stories. Every word has a place in the story
