John Irving ´ 4 characters Read & Download The Cider House Rules â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Raised from birth in the orphanage at St Cloud's Maine Homer Wells has become the protege of Dr Wilbur Larch its physician and director There Dr Larch cares for the troubled mothers. I just finished reading this novel and it is so phenominal that I m almost speechless and I m sad that it is over The story is engrossing rich moving tragic and satisfying and the imagery is extraordinarily powerful The plot takes place during the first half of the 1900 s in rural Maine and tells of Dr Larch an obstetrician founder of an orphanage abortionist and ether addict and his favorite orphan and heroic figure Homer Wells Irving develops the characters superbly such that the reader comes to know and love all of them even those with significant flaws The abortion issue is handled perfectly while it becomes obvious what Irving s opinion is he presents both sides of the issue objectively and refrains from preaching on the subject or becoming overtly political Normally I recommend reading a book before seeing the movie adaptation but in this case the movie is excellent so by reading the book first one may not appreciate the film as much as one should Irving is a storyteller on par with Dickens and I m going to add his other works to my future reading list

John Irving ´ 4 characters Read & Download The Cider House Rules â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Who seek his help either by delivering and taking in their unwanted babies or by performing illegal abortions Meticulously trained by Dr Larch Homer assists in the former but draws. While The Cider House Rules is an undeniably well written novel I grew impatient with the lengthy narrative and the idle characters It was hard for me to feel any sense of connection to the different characters and I cared very little about Homer s life at Ocean View I was always anxious to get back to St Cloud s and the orphanage For me the real story was about the relationship between Dr Larch and Homer Wells and I lost interest in the story once Larch and Homer ceased to communicateThough Homer is the protagonist of the story he remained inscrutable throughout the book Except for his propensity to interject right into any conversation and his longing for a family I would not be able to describe any of Homer s other characteristics his personality or aspirations Wally and Candy Worthington the perfect golden gods were so flat and dull that I usually couldn t wait for the story to shift away from them The triangle between Wally Candy and Homer could have been interesting but it is written without any tension between the characters In fact Irving completely skips over fifteen years of the trio s life together I wish the story had skipped completely over Homer s life in Ocean View Relationships were never explored to their potentials Even Olive Worthington is so sensible that she never blames or stigmatizes Homer and Candy for their actions Ray Kendall who might have had an interesting paternal relationship with Homer especially since parents are so scarce in this story dies without confronting either Homer or Candy In short a love triangle which could have been an immense source of drama to characters who actually reacted to events around them became boring It was so boring that fifteen years of potential strain was glossed overThe one truly interesting character in the book besides Dr Larch turned out to be the illustrious Melony whom I hugely enjoyed reading Melony may have been ridiculous but she was a well fleshed out interesting character whose life followed a reasonable yet interesting route I was eually interested in the two nurses at the orphanage who were only described briefly in the beginning of the novel Yet these two characters who have such strong presences in the lives of Dr Larch and Homer never have any face time of their own I couldn t separate Angela from Edna nor understand why Homer chose Angela as the namesake for his child Even a few pages on either of the nurses would have been useful and illuminatingInstead Irving segues into long descriptions of characters such as the stationmaster While the stationmaster is undoubtedly amusing I wondered why I cared And yet I liked the stationmaster passage better than the scenes at Ocean View It s unfortunate that the 5 pages introducing the stationmaster were interesting than Homer Candy and Wally combined In the end finishing The Cider House Rules became a chore I fail to see the brilliance apparently displayed in this novel Perhaps it only appears on a second reading however I don t think I ll ever pick this up again Oh and can I express my distaste for reading pages and pages about characters named Candy and Angel One would have been enough
