This book has made me cry.

At first I was shocked to receive that thick a book and a classic novel at that. So I had trouble starting it which is why I watched the movie that is based on this book (Simon Birch) before reading. I know I should have done it the other way around but at least this way I gave this book a chance which I wasn't inclined to do at first!! And what a treasure this book is! I loved every single minute of reading it.
Thank you for picking this novel!

I'll give it to Jessi626 the next chance I see her. She's in the Netherlands currently, so it might take some time to do so...

Sorry that the book was with me so long!
I tried it, but it's just not my cup of tea. Before finally deciding against finishing the book I've read some parts in between and they couldn't convince me either.

Edit August, 28th: I'm so sorry, the book is still with me. After I tried to contact bluecat07 (and the PM probably never reached her), I totally forgot about this book! Sorry!

Thanks for sending this book- I read Owen Meany in german already, and had planned to re-read
it in English; that was decades ago.

This time I will re-read it.

After his (almost) five year long journey, Owen is finally back home! I think I'll re-read the book quite soon - I'm excited to see whether I will like it as much as the first time.
