Brilliance Audio
In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys—best friends—are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball and kills the other boy’s mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn’t believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God’s instrument. What happens to Owen, after that 1953 foul ball, is extraordinary and terrifying.

Wonderful. Simply wonderful.

I would have enjoyed this book much more if Irving gave his audience intellectual credit. Instead of playing out the events and letting the reader come to a conclusion, Irving preaches and explains the obvious--more than once.

What a wonderful novel!
The narrator has quite a voice range!
If you're a person questioning the meaning of life at all ( who doesn't?) or especially if you're an English teacher...you'll relate strongly.
