I m sorry to say I did not love this book I thought reading the memoir of such a creative and talented fiction author would be at least somewhat entertaining Instead I got a blow by blow recap of every wrestling match John Irving has ever been in or refereedor that his sons were inor that some guy he met in college but can t remember his name was in This continues to a point of absurdity and I m not even sure hardcore wrestling fans could stay interested If you pick up this book I highly recommend you skip the memoir section entirely The short stories segment is considerably better and you can easily see that John Irving is a strictly FICTION author The stories were intriguing with dynamic characters and beautiful symbolism but just as you begin to get sucked in you re slapped in the face with an abrupt ending Almost all of the short stories had me wondering where they would have gone if he had expanded it into a full length novel It s obvious that Irving is a master of the novel and his stories need that time to develop and come full circle His short stories are entertaining but I wouldn t recommend them to someone reading Irving for the first time Finally this book included some critical analysis of Irving s favorite authors and I m sorry to say I gave up trying to finish Piggy Sneed It s fine that he like Charles Dickens but I was honestly too bored and disappointed to read another word of it Shame on Mr Irving for tricking his loyal fans into thinking this book would in any way compare to his novels Next time I ll know better
