1.0 su 5 stelle Long 14 giugno 2016

I read a review that said this book was hard to read. That the reader had found themself rereading paragraphs a few times to follow them. This is exactly the way it was for me. I read pages and pages over again. It was as if the author wrote them backwards. Jane see run. There was a ton rrof story that was almost there as filler. I wish I remember why I had this on my list.

5.0 su 5 stelle A good read 1 ottobre 2014
Di Redbird - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A Son of the Circus is a long read ... For much of the book the reader wades through a myriad of details covering multiple characters and stories until, finally, he/she is presented with a conclusion that draws him in and touches his heart. The detail and the extensive descriptions of the characters involved eventually lead to a conclusion which is thoughtful and satisfying. In thinking about writing this review, I decided to change the evaluation from 4 to 5 stars because this book is that good.

5.0 su 5 stelle Classic John Irving, over-the-top and yet still literary... 18 agosto 2010
Di Auliya - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

John Irving has the ability to make a plot worthy of Jerry Springer still feel like a literary masterpiece. This book is easy to read, long, satisfying, amusing, whimsical, and it shows a certain degree of chutzpah (or arrogance) for a wealthy white author to tackle the messy human conundrum that is India. He can only do it by maintaining that laugh-or-you-will-cry bittersweet tone that he does so very well. That slightly laughing tone pours all over the book to smooth out its jagged edges. I was appropriately uncomfortable on almost every page as the author laid out India in all its quirky and religiously saturated poverty-level wonder of squalor and stink. The main character (whom I miss now that the book is finished, like a departed friend) is an excellent vehicle for mixing in a sort of fondness for India "despite everything." In fact, one of the driving themes in the book is that it's tough not to deeply love India... in spite of its filth and constant circus-like insanity. Great book. After you read it, tell me, did I just give away the title? ;)
5.0 su 5 stelle A fun book 18 gennaio 2014

This book had a bit of a slow start with a lot of back round information, and I wondered if I was going to like it. But, like all of the John Irving books that I have read, he meshed the information together and it is a fantastic book. Somehow he weaves such a feeling of reality into each of his stories that I feel as though I know the characters. I loved that this book was set in India and also dealt with the feelings of an "immigrant always feeling like an immigrant".

I would certainly recommend this book

maybe because i've been reading amitav ghosh, but i found this book to be inauthentic, verbose and actually boring. i have enjoyed other books by john irving, but this one falls short.
