Eleven-year-old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend's mother. Owen doesn't believe in accidents; he believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul is both extraordinary and terrifying. At moments a comic, self-deluded victim, but in the end the principal, tragic actor in a divine plan, Owen Meany is the most heartbreaking hero John Irving has yet created.

There was a line in the book which I wanted to quote but I gave the book away without keeping a note of it. It was along the lines of "we live our lives full of expectation but the ending is always disappointing". Sorry but this is how I felt about this book.

Firstly this book seemed to take forever for me to read. I felt like it just went on and on. However, I did mostly like it. Some of it was a bit random and some of it was funny and some parts were sweet.
I finished reading this a month ago and still struggling to sum it up! So I'm gonna stop trying!
