This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields, a feminist leader ahead of her time. This is the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes, even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with lunacy and sorrow, yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries-with more than ten million copies in print-this novel provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: "In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases."… (mere)

The World According to Garp by John Irving (1990)
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
I'm not exactly sure what to think of this book. A book about the life of Garp and the people surrounding him. His mother, the members of his own family, but it's also about his experiences, his writing and his ideas. How gets to writing and what happens next and why.

I thought it was okay. A little bloody here and there. Not that I can't stand that, but it stood out in a book like this, more in that sense.
It wasn't until the epilogue of the book that I noticed that fear indeed might indeed be the theme. Of course I had noticed that when reading the book, but to see that confirmed is always nice! ( )

To read John Irving is to surround yourself in his world and enjoy his amazing story telling ability. There are a number of themes throughout his books; his interest in wrestling, his love of the underdog, his battle to glorify small suppressed individuals in society, and help them gain recognition and a right to have their voice heard. The virtues of women, the strive for equality amongst transgenders, and the condemnation of misogynists who choose to vilify rather than praise.
TS Carp, the illegitimate son of a WW pilot and a mother Jenny Fields who was to devote her life to the wellbeing of women in a world that seems increasingly hostile. From struggling author to devoted father Garp faces many challenges throughout his life devoted to his much admired mother Jenny fields and wife Helen. The writing of Irving is colourful, attentive to detail, never boring with rich characters in abundance. Highly recommended. ( )

a fun read,so well written, creative fantasy, sometimes hilarious, sometimes boring: somewhere between the pop of the foursome and beginning the marriage counsel, Had to be.
pleasant absurdism, sitcom (by my definition). Whimsical characters.
Meanwhile coming of age and family topics. being at about a third of the book.
And so my opinion stayed the book along. In the middle more boring parts, I read Garp's writing diagonally.
Satisfying that there was an epilogue: All characters finalized. ( )

The World According to Garp was more than single, memorable moments. It was unforgettable as a whole for a simple reason - it was epic. It was what a Great American Novel needs to be: all of life between covers.
 
These things oughtn't to be funny. Still, the way that Mr. Irving writes about them, they are. They way he filters them through his hero's unique imagination, we not only laugh at the world according to Garp, but we also accept it and love it.
