A Prayer for Owen Meany?


New Member
Hello all-thanks for reading:

Am looking for an emotive, engrossing read.
Currently reading The Great Santini and am a huge Conroy fan but half way through the week and i'm honestly not loving the story (nor do I like the lead character).

Thinking about dropping it and reading Owen Meany.

I've never read anything by Conroy, so not sure what you mean by engrossing and emotive. I really enjoyed A Prayer for Owen Meany. There is much dark humour in it, which I like, but is not for everybody.

You have nothing to lose by starting Owen Meany. If it doesn't catch your interest you can always try a different book.
