    Inhaltsangabe

    John Irving returns to the themes that established him as one of our most admired and beloved authors in this absorbing novel of fate and memory.

    As we grow older - most of all, in what we remember and what we dream - we live in the past. Sometimes we live more vividly in the past than in the present.

    As an older man, Juan Diego will take a trip to the Philippines, but what travels with him are his dreams and memories; he is most alive in his childhood and early adolescence in Mexico. "An aura of fate had marked him," John Irving writes of Juan Diego. "The chain of events, the links in our lives - what leads us where we're going, the courses we follow to our ends, what we don't see coming, and what we do - all this can be mysterious, or simply unseen, or even obvious."

    Avenue of Mysteries is the story of what happens to Juan Diego in the Philippines, where what happened to him in the past - in Mexico - collides with his future.

    J. Irving is Great, but

    I usually love reading John Irving, but Avenue of Mysreries is so boring and digusting that i stopped reading (hearing) in the middle.
    All is about penis, viagra, betablocker, ... Unbearable.
    Waiting for John's next, hopefully again brilliant book.

    Poor audio editing after the end

    After the end of the audio book, it would need at least 5 minutes of silence, but definitely not blunt advertising.

    Unerträglich

    Ich vergaß, dass das Buch bereits auf meinem Kindle war und ich auch beim selber lesen große Schwierigkeiten hatte, in die Geschichte zu kommen.. und sie dann vergessen ;). Ob es an mir liegt oder der Meister seinen 'touch' verloren hat - ich weiß es nicht. Schade, aber alles Gute geht mal vorbei. So schwelge ich in Erinnerungen an Bücher, die ich nicht aus der Hand legen konnte..

    as usual

    the usual Irving themes, displayed in his usual manner. Which is a lot better than most other books. But not better as most of his other books. a little bit disappointing.

    kind of wierd and boring

    it's all about dogs, slums, wierd story, penis, sex, church, chaotic, but sometimes J.Irving overdraws, a bit too much for my taste......I think, I'll have a J.Irving break now....
