The Cider House Rules by John Irving

The Cider House Rules - John Irving

Whew! This book was really quite heavy, and especially difficult to get into. It really went on and on, though some parts felt too predictable. It was somewhat of a frustrating read, but not entirely bad. The very end and certain parts along the way felt too neat, but I guess it was ok.
