'According to his mother, Jack Burns was an actor before he was an actor, but Jack's most vivid memories of childhood were those moments when he felt compelled to hold his mother's hand. He wasn't acting then.'

Jack Burns' mother, Alice, is a tattoo artist in search of the boy's father, a virtuoso organist named William who has fled America to Europe. To fund her journey, she plies her trade in the seaports of the Baltic coast. But her four-year-old son's errant father can't be found, and soon even Jack's memories of that perplexing time are called into question. It is only when he becomes a Hollywood actor in later life that what he has experienced in the past comes into telling play in his present......


"John Irving has been compared to 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 a mastery of his craft" (The Times)

"Irving writes with a lapidary directness that is unsurpassed by any living writer" (Sunday Telegraph)

"It is very satisfying to read a book that is hard to put down, and if this were a more valued criterion, Irving would no doubt by now have received the official accolades he deserves" (Financial Times)

"Vivid, eccentric, memorable" (Independent)

"Irving's popularity is not too difficult to understand. His world really is the world according to everyone" (Time)

I am an avid John Irving fan but I was kind of disappointed by this latest one. Whenever I pick up a new book by Irving I am always full of anticipation for the quirky unusual plot-lines and his humorous, down to earth story-telling, but it seems like lately he`s started to write less like a novelist and more like a screenwriter, trying his hand at bringing out the next Hollywood blockbuster. And why, oh why did we have to suffer through those long tedious descriptions of organs, and church music in the beginning chapters? It`s obvious that a fair amount of research went into this book, but is...続きを読む ›

5つ星のうち 3.0 Irving Continues to Disappoint 2008/6/16
投稿者 Dr. Christopher Coleman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I've read all of John Irving's books with only a single exception, and I've become increasingly saddened by them. Without question once one of America's strongest writers, he seemed to peak with A Prayer for Owen Meany and has not come close to the quality of those earlier novels. There's always been a certain sameness to Irving's stories--the one book of which this is not true, A Son of the Circus, was a critical catastrophe--but it's wearing thin. Until I Find You unleashes the familiar Irving elements--wrestling, quirky characters including prostitutes and crossdressing, sexual preoccupation, and more in another coming-of-age, seeking-one's-true-self story, this time with tattoos and organ-playing thrown in for good measure. There are some terrific moments in the book, and one of the well-plotted 'switcheroos' that Irving so loves, and he must be credited for these. But the whole seems far longer than either the story or its telling warrant; as a 300-, or even 500-page book this might really have worked. At almost 850 pages, it doesn't. "Show, don't tell" goes the old writer's adage, but Irving ignores it to his detriment. The characters are seldom shown in detail, but more often talked about in the third person--there's scarcely any dialogue, it seems--and so we are detached from them. Personally, I'm not sure I could really ever buy the premise of the main character's sexual escapades at such an early age, and although I'm not a prude I found the unrelenting fixation on this child's sexual development distasteful--again, at half the length, and with more involvement in the character, it might have worked. The book is further bogged down by Irving the narrator's numerous parenthetical comments, which serve to show the reader how clever he is, but advance the story or characterizations not at all. The Amazon review calls the ending a 'snapper'--I found it simply ludicrous, and was reminded of the opening of Monty Python's Flying Circus, with the nude organist. Perhaps, for John Irving, it really IS 'time for something completely different.'

5つ星のうち 3.0 Not My Favorite Book By John Irving 2017/1/4
投稿者 Sally Carrubba - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
He has written some of my favorite stories, such as "A Prayer for Owen Meany", "Cider House Rules" and "Widow for One Year" and some of the worst (in my opinion), "Hotel New Hampshire" and "Fourth Hand". This one was right in the middle. I found it way too long. I didn't understand the significance (if there was any) or relationship of a lot of it. It didn't really grab me, but eventually it got to a satisfying place.

5つ星のうち 3.0 He's not here. Not here either. Sorry, you've just missed him... 2014/11/10
投稿者 Richard Singer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Perhaps I am getting just a little tired of the author's quirks. This novel is an odyssey laden with all of Irving's trademark character ingredients: transvestitism; a small-statured (but badass) wrestler; dominant women, yada-yada ( but no bears?).

There is a degree of suspense and anticipation fostered by a plot that moves at a very plodding, if moderately entertaining pace, but this is no "Twisted River" (and I say that as a fan of the writer and also as a fan of tattoos!).

Unfortunately, the payoff at the end of this story does not seem commensurate with all of the prior teasing, and the central character's epiphany is not especially affecting, maybe because the author has made him so emotionally unavailable throughout the book.

IMHO Irving needs a better editor!
5つ星のうち 3.0 Jack's Family and Friends 2013/10/11
投稿者 Jayne P. Bowers - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A couple of years ago, one of my sister book club members suggested A Prayer for Owen Meany, and we all read it with relish. Delighted with Owen, I recently downloaded Until I Find You to my kindle, and although I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit it, I stuck with the novel until the bitter end. Why embarrassed? Because the book has many, many, many scenes that involve sexually explicit material, including those involving children.

By the time Jack's wrestling partner, an older woman, began molesting him, I was too far into the story to stop reading cold turkey. From then on, I just skipped over the disturbing parts because I HAD TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED. Where was Jack's father? What really happened between Alice and William? Was William the cad he was portrayed to be?

When the mammoth novel begins, Jack is a 4-year-old child living with his mother Alice, a tattoo artist. As it turns out, she is also a prostitute, at least some of the time. Just when I was thinking that Jack's memory was incredibly sharp, I learned that he was remembering events incorrectly. Was that a protective mechanism? Or was it just proof of the human fallibility of memory? Psychologists believe that personal memories are part fact and part fiction, and that certainly seems to be the case with young Jack.

Years pass, and Jack grows up and goes away to school. He discovers his proclivity for acting and later becomes a top rated movie star. However, he is quite unhappy and harbors resentment towards his mother, especially after he learns the twisted truth about what happened between William and her. Wait! Is William the good guy and Alice the villain? You'll need to read that for yourself.

Irving's story telling ability intrigued me so that I had to stick it out until the end. Would Jack find his father? Would they forge a relationship? Yes! But that's all I'm saying. Well, I'll add one more thing. Jack's life takes an upswing in more ways than one when he learns that he has a father, a father who has loved him at a distance for his entire life.

This is a long, long novel with disturbing scenes and language that could have been omitted without harm to the novel. People's family relations are complex and affect us in a myriad of ways. If you don't believe me, read this novel...just be prepared for some disturbing scenes.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Haunting Tale - unrelently Iriving 2013/9/6
投稿者 Heather - (Amazon.com)

As always, the hook of Irving's novel - the damaged young boy In New England who is sexually conflicted, confused and constantly thinking about. However, this one starts with a small boy "with perfect linear memory" and a story of he and his mother traversing the North Atlantic in search of a deadbeat dad. Instead of New England they end up in Toronto and his childhood progresses as most Irving novels - no father figure or an absent one. Add the obligatory best girlfriend who is sexually conflicted, some cross dressing and a stint at Phillips Exeter Academy and you have a perfect John Irving novel. No matter how many times I can read that formula the characters this author weaves have me by the heartstrings and I am emotionally involved in all their lives. Being the daughter of a New Hampshire native I know the locations mentioned and love his descriptions. The poetic nature of his stories is mesmerizing and there is usually one element in his stories which hit home - HARD - and brings me to my knees. This book was no exception. I highly recommend this book if you love John Irving. I sure do.
