I have this ridiculous guilt about not finishing books, but its making me want to punch myself in the mouth.
I detest the creepy, manipulative little fucker that is Owen Meany. I detest the way practically all female characters are assessed on how sexually attractive they are - especially the way its done with faux-innocence.
So...tell me its ok to pack it in, even better, tell me you hated it too, I seem to be the only one not to regard it as one of the best novels ever written.
I hated it and left it three times before I finally finished it on the fourth try, and that time I loved it. I did reread it later on as well and still loved it, but it's been a long time since then so I might have to give it another go and see how I feel about it now.
