Cider house rules / John Irving / Set in rural Maine in the first half of this century, it tells the story of Dr. Wilbur Larch--saint and obstetrician, founder and director of the orphanage in the town of St. Cloud's, ether addict and abortionist. It is also the story of Dr. Larch's favorite orphan, Homer Wells, who is never adopted.
The Cider House Rules - John Irving's books, esp. this one, help me believe I can do this ... learn to tell the good story.
The Cider House Rules by John Irving (24h11m) #Audible #FirstLine: "In the hospital of the orphanage--the boys' division at St. Cloud's, Maine--two nurses were in charge of naming the new babies and checking that their little penises were healing from the obligatory circumcision."
The Cider House Rules - John Irving is my favorite author... and I have read almost all his books... and for some reason I kept having to put this one down - finally almost finished with it --WOOT!
The Cider House Rules - John Irving was probably my favorite author in my teen years
The Cider House Rules | The Ultimate Summer Reading List: 100 Beach Reads
The Cider House Rules, by John Irving. Potentially my favorite book ever.
The Cider House Rules is yet another of John Irving's sweeping sagas through many lives and many years, focused not so much on the Cider House, as on the orphanage of the fictional St. Clouds, Maine, and especially the life of Homer Wells, one of the orphans who is never successfully placed in a home for adoption and therefore comes close to being a personification of the institution. The rules of the Cider House are a metaphor for the social and moral rules that we all equip ourselves with and revise according to need. This is the central philosophical question of the novel: what are the rules that we follow, when and how and why do we revise them, and what happens when we break them? Irving wraps this question around the question of abortion, a deeply emotional and controversial issue which has probably played a large role in shaping the reaction of many readers to the book itself. I know it certainly did for me. Like all of Irving's books, this 1985 book is gritty, complex, sprawling, and makes no particular effort to make you comfortable. Irving makes no secret of his intention to attack conventionality and self-righteousness, while sparing morality and religion, placing Charlotte Brontë's famous quote right before the title. It is perhaps fitting then that what sticks in my head after reading this book is not the characters and their lives as much as the philosophical premise of the novel. By making his novels so sweeping and wide-ranging, and by taking us into the heads of so many different characters, Irving does not create the tight emotional identification with characters that is more the norm nowadays. Unfortunately this meant that I found it a little too easy to put aside, in spite of the fact that I generally like coming at stories from several angles to get a better perspective. In the end, I am ambivalent about the novel, although I am sure that I will be chewing over the questions it raised for some time. I think Mr. Irving would be pleased.

This is not only my favorite book, but favorite movie as well. This book has so much more to offer than the movie could even began to unmask. I honestly wish that Alice Walker could have written it longer! It's southern setting keeps you wanting more.
I don't completely remember this story, but can remember that it hugely affected my teenage self, and I have never forgotten its impact yet... One to put on the summer reading list methinks. :-)

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Of Mice And Men, Books Movies, John Steinbeck, High School, Books I Ve, Books Books, Favorite Books
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is a brilliant novella of two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression. Their unlikely friendship, which began by chance and was sustained by mutual hope, was ultimately tested by unthinkable tragedy. (If you had to read it in high school, read it again from an adult perspective! It's such a good read!)
Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck 1937 – Lenny is the main character of this novel and has a mental disability. This is a very iconic book that paints lenny as short of a bad guy with good intentions. I think if we stray away from this notation of people with disabilities we will be able to grow as a community, but I still love this book
Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck 1937- SADDEST BOOK YOU WILL EVER READ. but amazing work of literature

Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck | one of my all-time favorite books
Of Mice and Men book cover
Image from Wikimedia Commons George and Lennie are drifters in the world, bouncing from site to site and seeking a place to call their own. So they form a plan, a plan to gather up enough money to build their own little paradise. But as they soon come to know, "the best-laid schemes of mice and men often go awry". --Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck I respect books. Books contain whole worlds in them, the lives of whole crowds of characters. Respect the books, I say, because they're the container that holds the minds of their authors. And then I read Of Mice and Men. And stifled the urge to fling it across the room. This is one of the most infuriating books I have ever read, and it's only a hundred-or-so pages long. Now, to pack that much emotion into such little space is a feat, which is probably why John Steinbeck's writing is so renowned, but it isn't without problems. It uses racist language and slings random vulgarities around without remorse. Innocent puppies and mice are killed. It gets almost preachy at times, giving the reader the mental image of Steinbeck standing on a soapbox and hollering through a bullhorn. Then there is, of course, the small problem of how strong it is. Problem? you ask. Yes, a huge blockade of a problem. Much like Lennie in the story, the book is almost unknowingly powerful. Withing five pages, you find yourself rooting for and sympathizing with simple-minded Lennie and clever George, even without knowing their backstory or knowing much about how they got to the point where they were trekking miles to find a ranch to work at. Of Mice and Men is like a Greek tragedy in every way (barring the minor alteration of it being an American novel), from the three-act structure it's set up in to the sudden, almost startling ending of the story. It isn't as though the ending was unexpected, for it wasn't, since from the very beginning you sense that something isn't quite right but you stifle to feeling just to carry on optimistically wishing the characters success. Nay, the ending is startling because the sheer emotion hits you with all the subtlety of a bulldozer. And then it hits you, the reader, that you should have seen this coming. Of Mice and Men is a great novel. Perhaps not superb, or anything, but it's incredibly styled and it carries a weighty message with a realistic theme. Maybe real life doesn't have any such thing as foreshadowing, maybe if the story were set in modern times Lennie would have been locked up for animal abuse, but it is realistic in at least one respect: It tells you that there's no such thing as a happy ending. --Aishwarya Jayadeep

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey.
In general, it’s a pretty safe bet that when a movie comes out based on a book, the original was better. However, that’s not always the case. It might be because the novel was bad, or because the director was amazing, but every now and then we see a film version that handily surpasses its origins, and these are 14 such examples. 14. Bourne Identity Don’t get me wrong, the Bourne Identity is a good book. It’s a great spy novel, packed with plenty of action. However, when it went to the big screen, it was tightened up substantially, a subplot with Carlos the Jackal was removed, and it added a crucial theme: that Bourne could be guilty for all the things he was accused of. It added a slightly darker twist to the character, and one that was executed brilliantly, with Matt Damon playing remarkably against type. We do have to hate the movie a bit for one thing: it made shakeycam incredibly popular. 13. MIB The Men in Black films were incredibly comedy-action combos, that were mega-blockbusters for a reason. There’s a third one in the works, with Jemaine Clement as a villain, which is possibly the greatest idea ever. The comics? Thoroughly, thoroughly disappointing. Banal, edgy for no reason, filled with violence, and without any of the charm or wit that filled the films. They languished in development hell before being picked up by Marvel, and it’s surprising they were ever turned into movies. But man, what an improvement. 12. The Shining Stephen King famously hated The Shining when Kubrick’s adaptation when it hit the screens in 1980, which is fair enough, because Kubrick improved on the story immensely. In the novel, Jack is essentially an author self-insert, who never really does anything bad, and is redeemed by the end. The film version significantly builds on the character, creating a far more sinister creation. Since it’s Kubrick, the sheer density of content is phenomenal, with each scene have meaning, layer upon layer. If you watch the mini-series from 1997, you see just how banal a faithful adaption is, when compared to a work done by someone who really knows what they’re doing, and can add enough to make a good plot into a great one. 11. Wag the Dog/American Hero The major change between Wag the Dog and its parent novel American Hero (apart from it being much, much funnier), is that they took the film a step away from the real world. The satirical novel is based directly on real people and events: George HW Bush is the president in question, and that the first Iraqi war was faked, which leads to it happening. The movie gets to have much more fun with the premise, partly due to the unnamed president, and the fact that Albania was chosen as the source of war. The film ended up not getting the respect it deserved, as it was a wonderfully crafted black comedy, and a biting critique of how the media handles war and [...]

The Chocolate Lady's Book Reviews: John Irving's Masterpiece
Today’s post is brought to you by the letter L. Picking my favorite five books in 26 different genres isn’t easy. Some genres have TONS of great books, and other letters don’t really have obvious genres. So I’m cheating and doubling up. I know that C was for classic, and I already told you about my five favorite classics. But L is for Literature, so now I’m going to tell you about five more. Aren’t I crafty? What’s your favorite l gem? A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. I almost went with a different John Irving book, but couldn’t keep Owen Meany off my list. This was one of my absolute favorite books as a teenager. Owen is just such an unusual character. Also, John Irvings books are all good at forcing me to think. I don’t necessarily love them as much while I’m reading them, but I spend weeks thinking about them after I’ve turned the last page. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I almost put Hamlet on this list, because it’s well Hamlet. But I think Midsummer is my favorite of Shakespeare’s plays, so I decided to list it instead. I love them all though. Shakespeare is remembered and revered for a reason, he wrote so many amazing plays and poems, it’s hard to believe he was only one guy. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Dickens is kind of like Shakespeare, a great master. I love A Tale of Two Cities partially because it’s a great book, and partially out of nostalgia. It was the first bedtime story my mom read to me in our new home after we moved when I was nine. Yes, I loved Dickens when I was nine, and yes, hearing his words made me feel at home in a new place. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Before it was a great musical, it was a great book. It’s an interesting mystery that is definitely worth reading. Or I guess you could just visit Broadway and listen to the music of the night instead. Even though I love this book, it is kind of weird reading it—there aren’t any musical interludes, in Phantom. So bazaar. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Another timeless classic, kind of. That’s the thing about classics. People always claim that they’re timeless, and quote them and relate to them now. And really great books do transcend time, to an extent. But come on, today people don’t marry their first cousins, and four miles is never an impenetrable distance. It’s the history that comes with the story that I actually like best about most classics. Tune back in tomorrow for the letter M. Also don't forget to enter my 100 followers contest.
