The world according to Garp

Garp’s world is not beautiful, though it is really real in a crazy sense. His characters are so out of place that I’ve been wondering why exactly I liked this when I once mentioned that I loved the book. This misplaced world is actually THE world and I have the urge to re-read this novel, or at least parts of it, even if it’s unpleasant and shocking at times. You really get everything in this book and Garp is of course the center of it all. It feels that the reason for everything happening in this book is life and ultimately recognizing the life and uniqueness of each weird character, person, action. “Oh Boy!” Who would have thought I would give this book more than 4 stars.
