The Hotel New Hampshire – John IrvingMay 29, 2009 - Author: Nayes
Fuck I love this book!! And yes I run the risk of being moaned at by family members for swearing but I don’t care all too much. I am quite sure this will remain number one in my heart for a ridiculously long time to come. If not forever. John Irving has been called a modern day Dickens which is of the highest sort of praise I’m sure – but let’s face it – the man is a literary god unto himself! The absolute ease with which he not only tells the most intricate and fascinating stories pales only in comparison to the incredible skill with which he create’s literature’s most fascinating and memorable characters. If only we were all so blessed with such depths of talent!
My absolute favourite character in this book is Egg – and Egg doesn’t even speak! It’s insane! He is in fact my favourite character out of any book. I just absolutely loved him and I cried when he died.. In fact I nearly stopped reading the book when he died. I did press on though – and wow wow wow! Man I love John Irving!!!!!!!!
