Review:

"Superb in scope and originality, a novel as good as one could hope to find from any author, anywhere, anytime. Engrossing, moving, thoroughly satisfying."
--Joseph Heller

[Irving] is among the very best storytellers at work today. At the base of Irving s own moral concerns is a rare and lasting regard for human kindness. Philadelphia Inquirer

Superb in scope and originality, a novel as good as one could hope to find from any author, anywhere, anytime. Engrossing, moving, thoroughly satisfying. Joseph Heller
An old-fashioned, big-hearted novel . . . with its epic yearning caught in the nineteenth century, somewhere between Trollope and Twain. Boston Sunday Globe

The Cider House Rules is filled with people to love and to feel for. . . . The characters in John Irving s novel break all the rules, and yet they remain noble and free-spirited. Houston Post

reviews
'Funnier than Garp...it's an irresistibly readable yarn spun by a master's voice' Time Out

'John Irving has been compared with kurt Vonnegut and J.D.Salinger but is arguably more inventive than either. Wry, laconic, he sketches his characters with an economy that springs from a feeling for words and mastery over his craft. This superbly original book is one to be read and remembered' The Times

'The Cider House Rules is difficult to define and impossible not to admire' Daily Telegraph

'Like the rest of Irving's fiction, it is often disconcerting, but always exciting and provoking' Observer
