Last Night in Twisted River, by John Irving

Last Night in Twisted River is the latest by John Irving. Let me begin by saying that I count The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany amoungst my favorite books of all time.

Sadly, Twisted River is not one of my favorites. In fact, I made it only halfway!!  I just couldn’t finish it.  It went on, and on, and on. It didn’t go anywhere, and I didn’t care about the characters.  I think the worst offense was the characters.  And the lack of plot.  <sigh>

I really don’t like not being able to finish a book.  It feels like quitting.
