There were parts of this novel I really liked and parts I struggled to read and it is too long. The reader meets Jack Burns as a four year old and we follow him, sometimes second by second to his early middle age. The story is mostly told chronologically but does look back in later chapters. As a four year old, Jack travels between tattoo parlours, through various Northern European countries. His mother tells him they are following his father. Back in Canada and the USA, there is so much abuse I almost gave up reading. It is only John Irving's brillian writing and his humour that kept me going as I shut my eyes to the worst parts to avoid nightmares. This is when he meets Emma, five years older than Jack who becomes his best friend. Together they live in LA among the stars.and Jack gets a therapist. There are slightly expected twists before the end, lots of detail about films and Hollywood parties and then the big turn around. I kept going to the end, as I say because the writing is so good but I would have loved this to have been shorter.. ( )

From the Dust Jacket"
"'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.'

"So begins John Irving's eleventh novel, 'Until I Find You', the story of the actor Jack Burns. His mother, Alice, is a Toronto tattoo artist. When Jack is four, he travels with Alice to several North Sea ports; they are trying to find Jack's missing father, William, a church organist who is addicted to being tattooed. But Alice is a mystery, and William can't be found. Even Jack's memories are subject to doubt.

"Jack Burns is educated at schools in Canada and New England, but he is shaped by his relationships with older women. John Irving renders Jack's life as an actor in Hollywood with the same richness of detail and range of emotions he uses to describe the tattoo parlours in those North Sea ports and the reverberating music Jacck heard as a child in European churches.

"The author's tone -- indeed, the narrative voice of this novel -- is melancholic. 'Until I Find You' is suffused with overwhelming sadness and deception; it is also a robust and comic novel, certain to be compared to John Irving's most ambitious and moving work." ( )

Hasta que te encuentre, la undécima novela de John Irving, narra la historia del actor Jack Burns. Su madre, Alice, es una tatuadora de Toronto. Su padre, William Burns, un joven organista de Edimburgo adicto a los tatuajes. En 1969, con sólo cuatro años, Jack Burns acompaña a su madre en un viaje por los diferentes puertos del mar del Norte y del Báltico a la búsqueda del padre de Jack, que abandonó a Alice tras dejarla embarazada. Recorren sin resultado los ambientes más sórdidos de Copenhague, Amsterdam, Oslo, Helsinki y Estocolmo, y tienen que regresar a Canadá.
Jack comienza allí su educación en un colegio donde es el único niño y donde se iniciará sexualmente con una chica mucho mayor que él; esta experiencia, y las que vivirá en diferentes internados de Nueva Inglaterra, conformarán de manera indeleble su carácter. Cuando convertido en actor, celebre la obtención de un Oscar en el año 2000, partirá de nuevo hacia Europa, esta vez solo, atraído por el inquietante misterio de su desconocido padre.

Not my favorite of JI but it's still a good story. I found the book lagging in the beginning and then the late introduction of many folks in the end left me, aggrivated? Not sure. I was so used to the current characters that it bothered me. But, it's still a very good read. ( )

One of the problems with this novel is that Mr. Irving never finds a persuasive voice for narrating these events. The repeated acts of sexual abuse committed upon the prepubescent Jack play neither as awful, realistic acts of abuse nor as metaphorical, Grand Guignol encounters. As a result, the whole book is suffused with a smarmy but cartoonish aura: the reader is unable to sympathize with Jack as a poor abused child or to regard his experiences as some sort of farcical parable about the wicked ways of the world.

What we, or at any rate what I, refer to confidently as memory -- meaning a moment, a scene, a fact that has been subjected to a fixative and thereby rescued from oblivion -- is really a form of storytelling that goes on continually in the mind and often changes with the telling. Too many conflicting emotional interests are involved for life ever to be wholly acceptable, and possibly it is the work of the storyteller to rearrange things so that they conform to this end. In any case, in talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw.

For my youngest son, Everett,

who made me feel young again.

With my fervent hope that when you're

old enough to read this story, you will

have had (or still be in the midst of)

an ideal childhood -- as different from

the one described here as anyone

could imagine.
