But by making his characters unfeeling robots, he has made me really not care what happens to them. He competed as wegun wrestler for twenty years, and coached wrestling until he was forty-seven. I think someone should write a novel about Garp’s mother; I found her to be a much more interesting character.

There was just absolutely no point to this book at all. Dean Bodger Mark Soper Whilst Garp sees aegun as a “serious” writer, Jenny writes a feminist manifesto at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women. I really could not get into this book. As is the case with all Irving’s books, this is horribly bloated, self-indulgent, self-infatuated, over-written and beset with the author’s long litany of personal fixations: I’m really bothered by a character ummm trait?

I’m surprised he didn’t work in any cheap shots at hard hats and Vietnam Vets! Alternate Versions CBS edited 16 minutes from this film for its network television premiere. Certainly there is an element of that in the book, but as a theme, it is minor compared to the hatred of women and fear of female sexuality that runs through the book.

The World According to Garp appears to take the view that sex is essentially evil, and only forgivable when procreation is the goal.

Garp is constantly going on about how he is so paranoid about his kids and he loves them.

His relationship with his children grap on the pedophilia level at some points with him taking baths with his 5 year old son and wanting him to stay in the bath with him “as long as possible” while they “wrestled”. You must be a registered user to use the IMDb rating plugin.


Irving could have summed up the stories to keep the book moving along, but gzrp didn’t. I can see the value in this book as an exemplary work of contemporary fiction, but I was halfway through and still not enjoying it.
