The World According to Garp

Title: The World According to Garp
Author: John Irving
Call Number: PS3559.R8 W67 1998
Rating: Highly Recommended
Review: I know I’m a little late getting to reading this book that most of you have probably already read, but I just loved it! We follow the life of T.S. Garp which is often tragic, hilarious, heartbreaking and oddly interesting. John Irving is such a brilliant writer. I found myself completely lost in the book as if I was a part of Garp’s life myself. Garp has such a funny dark way at looking at everything! I don’t want to spoil anything but the book ends by wrapping up everyone’s life so perfectly. I was touched and haven’t felt sad a book came to an end in a very long time.
