Journal Entry 1 by Nell-Lu from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Friday, July 25, 2008
The story of Owen Meany is funny and touching, with moments where I wanted to jump in and protect poor Owen, but times when I wanted to shake him and ask what on earth he thought he was doing. At the age of eleven, he accidently kills his best friend's mother. The story of his life is written by that best friend. It's original and surprising as well as entertaining.

I'm going to organise a bookray for this. I'll send it out to the first person in the first week of August.
