"... all these years Walt had been dreading a giant toad, lurking offshore, waiting to suck him under and drag him out to sea. The terrible Under Toad." LOL great quote. I LOVED this book...maybe my favorite of Irving's.
I LOVE John Irving. He is truly a literary mastermind and, I think, will one day rank with Ernest Hemmingway and Steinbeck as American masters of the writing craft. A Prayer for Own Meany is no exception. Skillfully written and unabashadly wry, It's no wonder this is my husband's favorite book. I'm not finished yet, but it won't take me long!!!

I love to read! Just to tell you how dorky I was as a kid....I used to think that the coolest thing ever would be to accidentally get locked into the library over the weekend! Just me, books, sunshine and smooth wooden floors all weekend long! Good Lord, I embarrass myself with my lameness!
