Having recently rediscovered how much I love John Irving’s outrageously imaginative storytelling, I decided to reread Garp, which I thought was great years ago, to see how the passage of time affected my appreciation. Overall, not quite as much pleasure; however I got very attached to his excessive characters, but more frustrated with the extreme plot. Can’t fault Irving for his inventive tale-spinning, though.
